Modified Trestle Table

Submitted by Ryan on Fri, 07/27/2012 - 06:24

This is the kitchen table that I made when my wife said I "wasn't handy", I'm pretty sure she meant she wanted me to replace the ceiling in the dining room...

I took the Farmhouse Table plans and changed them a bit to create a true trestle table. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Unfortunately there isn't anywhere to put the Google SketchUp of this project.

Estimated Cost
$250
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Poplar
Finish Used
I used a cherry gel stain and a jacobean traditional stain, finished with poly. Two coats of cherry followed by the jacobean and three coats of the poly.
Recommended Skill Level

Basically I combined the farmhouse and trestle table plans that Ana has up here... I didn't want to use a metal bar to fasten the legs, so I used a wood cross brace. Though honestly with the large box legs, the table is very sturdy even without a cross brace. I have a Google SketchUp of this project if you want it.

I love the color of the finish. I am just about ready to start building my farmhouse table and was looking for a nice color for the finish. Thanks for sharing!
