Here is a knock down trestle table for camping. As I recall the top is 36” x 18” x 3/4” The trestle is butternut and the top is reclaimed yellow pine trimmed in oak with brass brads. The top drops onto 4 pegs on the corners of the trestles to lock it into place. The rest is two trestles and the cross beam, and two wedges. Flat and light, it’s a very handy size.

Butternut is related to Walnut, I think and it works pretty much the same. This was a salvage piece that had take a beating from bugs, so it seems not very resistant in that respect.
