I am an amateur woodworker and I just finished a Tuscan trestle table for a friend's small Italian restaurant, and thought you might be interested in it.
-made from old salvaged attic floor timbers, lots or worm and powder post beetle borings, very heavy old growth wood
-made to be easily...
built from a load of salvaged oak wood from near by farm. lots of powder post beetle boring and nail holes. end extends another 4 ft. table disassembles as it is well in excess of 400 lbs. saw a lots of similar tables biking through tuscanny a few years back.
