This Table is based on a design by Tage Frid. The main top floats on the base while the extensions move in and out on angled slides. Base is made from solid Walnut with shop made brass hardware. The Top and Extensions are walnut veneer on Plywood, edge banded with solid walnut.

I wanted the bridge section and its associated stretchers to be removable so I made some knock down hardware for it. These brass pieces are designed to be inserted in the end of the bridge piece that connects the ends.

There are then two more boards that connect the the tops at each end. This is the hardware used for this connection

This is a very nice trestle table and it’s extra special because of an expandable base. Nice work!
