My attempt at a simple trestle table with some curly maple.this was for a youth department. I was asked to build little higher than normal and is just little narrower than a standard table width. Used Transtint golden brown with some sanding down before final finish to get the wood features and figure to stand out.

I would build legs little larger next time but these hold the table fine. Table is about 34” tall x 8’ with width of about 28”

Beautiful results. The wood looks great with the transtint. Nice design too. Sometimes trestle tables have a heavy look, but yours has a nice light feel to it.

Built to an unusual spec, and still maintains a nice looking line, Classic look. Nice job.

Thanks for the comments , Yes Steve this one is little taller than most but the group wanted it little higher I believe they want to use stools around the table.
On all other my next one will definitely change a few items
