First post on Finewoodworking. Made from recycled western cedar. Used to be utility poles! 1/2″ walnut dowels as accent wood on the breadboards. 1″ walnut dowels as pegs to secure the trestle. Three coats of gloss poly on the table top.

Looks really good. I really like the beefiness of the table. Nice job, keep posting your work.
Thanks, I used a dado blade for both. I believe the tenon was 3/4" long, and 1/8" depth on each side of the table top. Then set the dado to 1/2" and plunge cut. It took a couple practice cuts until I got it right.
Hi nice job on the table.I am planning on a similar top out of some wormy chestnut I have.How did you do the breadboard ends?Did you rout a groove in the end board and form the tenon with a router or something different?
