An Arts-and-Crafts take on the classic trestle table design. Tusked tenons make for a rapid knock-down design. The trestle table used to be the most common form of western table design, but is now more of a niche product. I’ve always wanted to put my own spin on it, so I ended up designing this one, with tapering trestles and a graceful arc to the rail that connects them.
Built with traditional techniques, this solid table is assembled with a minimum of glue, and will last for generations. The trestles feature classic draw-bored assembly, where wooden pegs are forced through slightly offset holes to create an extremely strong joint with no glue at all. Old English pieces using this technique are still strong after hundreds of years.
