Trestle table

January 16, 2017

Trestle tables are easily taken apart for storage or move and they don’t have apron’s that can get in the way of your legs. I made sure there is plenty of leg space all around the table, this table sits 10 people.

This will be glued; there was no way to keep it in place tide that’s way I came up with these bed-brackets they will keep it firm in exact place while glueing them.

Solid panel door.

Thick panels they are locked in and not glued they need the freedom to expand and shrink, otherwise they would certainly crack.

The bottom is sloops; for rainwater to flow of.
