With trestle tables, John brings his knowledge of timber frame joinery to the kitchen. Instead of legs at each corner, like the standard farmhouse table, trestle tables are held up in the table’s center by an architectural structure known as a trestle.
The weight of the table top is carried by two rigid frames held together by a central beam. This design avoids the annoyance of bumping into table legs, as the table top has a wide overhang around the whole perimeter.
The joinery is clasped with square pegs and wedges, designed to be easily portable and exceptionally stable while once assembled.
John makes every trestle table unique, based on the customer’s vision and budget. Pictured is a live-edge walnut table with breadboard ends and maple wedges.
