A Fresh Take on the Trestle Table
A live edge and nontraditional joinery revamp a traditional form
A simple, elegant base complements the natural beauty of the live-edge top on this trestle table. The base joinery is half laps and bridle joints, with easy angles, slight tapers, and optional pegs to add interest. A spacer between the posts creates an interesting detail without sacrificing strength. The two pieces that make up the top are joined with a spline.
