Custom Black Walnut trestle table for family dining room. Joinery in table is predominately Festool Domino floating mortise and tenon joints. Finish is Minwax Golden Oak stain followed by numerous coats of polyurethane and Minwax Special Dark wax.

Photos with the light colored construction wood is of the mockup used to set up dimensions and jigs to cut mortises for the joints. I will be putting a top of 2 X 8’s on it for use in a family cabin.

The last photo is a mockup illustrating the use of multiple Dominos in the major joints on the uprights.
