  1. Projects Trestle Plant Stand

    Trestle Leg Plant Stand In 2018 a large ash tree was blown down in my neighbors yard. I was fortunate enough for him to allow me to have access to cut the tree up into natural edge slabs. Now that the wood is dry I made a plant stand that can be assembled as a kit for shipping. The screws in...
  2. Live Edge Maple Trestle Table

    Time for another dining table project for one of my son's. This one was to be a live edge table but he wanted an original design base. The third pic shows the model I built to get approval on the design, as well as a segmented bowl made from leftover bits - 1:12 scale. I paid particular...
  3. Trestle Bench

    This trestle bench was a piece I built at a local college woodworking course. The course was four full days so I took the time off work and spent the entire week working on this bench. That week has got me wondering if I can somehow take a few months off and get to the inside passage school of...
  4. Recycled Lumber Table

    This is a table made from recycled lumber I got from a dumpster locally. This table is for a cafe that here in the area, and they wanted the recycled theme to be carried out into the furniture. I ripped pieces with a table saw, positioned them together, ran threaded bolt through the middle, and...
  5. Harvest table

    This project contained a lot of firsts. First live edge, first bow tie splines, even my first LJ's post. Very rewarding and quite challenging. The top is WO and the base is SYP. Mortise and tenons everywhere. The chairs were just a kit. Thanks for looking. More projects to come.

  7. Mom's Quilt Trestle

    This is the finished Quilt Trestle I made for my Mother. The story goes like this. My Mother called and asked if I could assemble a Quilt Trestle for her. Of course right, after all she's my Mom. She shows up with a small box about 6"x9"x14". I figure, how long could this take? No time at all...

  10. Walnut Trestle Cradle

    This is my first project posting on Lumberjocks. My wife and I are expecting our first baby in early September. I saw a similar cradle to this on the FWW website at about the same time we found out. I decided that I wanted to build one. It was built mostly by hand. All the stock preparation...
  11. Reclaimed table with breadboard ends and matching bench

    This table is a trestle style table made with hand hewn barn beams for the legs. The beams came from an 1800's barn and there were 80-something rings on the wood - these things probably started growing in the 1700's!! It was really cool working on them. The one piece still had an original...

    I finished these some time ago. Inspired by Len Cullum's article from Make magazine on Japanese saw horses. Douglas fir with draw bored oak pins.

  16. Child Size Trestle Table & Bench

    Here's a project I just wrapped up for my good friend and business partners Daughter, Penelope & her new sister Violet. P has been the baby for some time now, so I wanted to do something special for her as I'm imagining this has to be quite the adjustment for her. In their basement there's a...
