After conferring with the customer , it was decided that a design with end extensions would be needed for the Trestle Table. Sizes and pedestal design were also determined. Since the customer wanted to finish the table with a "whitewash" type finish, it was decided to construct the Trestle Table with 3/4" birch plywood for the table top, while solid 1" poplar was used for the remaining parts of the table, including the pedestals & base.
With end extensions locked in place, the Trestle Table top is 72" long x 40" wide. Opening & extending the ends with 2 leaves makes the table top 96" long. The table top also has a 3" apron around the top. There are 2 stretchers, one upper (hidden by the 3" apron) & one lower, that support & lock the pedestals in place.
