This is a classic example of our signature trestle base design crafted for a client in Connecticut.
The Table top is made from two near bookmatched slabs of cherry. When making a top from two slabs to achieve dining table widths, I either strive to make it look like one solid piece by careful grain matching or I highlight the fact the top is made from two pieces as with this top by keeping some of the light sap wood in the middle.
This top also features the bark intact which is an option depending on the dimensions needed and slabs available. Whether the bark stays intact depends on what season the trees were harvested. Table tops and counter tops without the bark are always an option as it can easily be removed.
The Bench has a base to match our classic trestle dining table, but can stand on its own as well.
As stand alone pieces our benches allow the use of some of our more interesting shaped yet less practical slabs and for dining purposes we can make use of some of our narrower slabs(still 14-18" wide!)
