Trestle tables were a common functional form found throughout New England during the first half of the 18th Century. Our table features breadboard ends, a 36" wide top, and solid "trestle and post" construction. Designed with usability in mind, our model is perfect for a working kitchen.
Construction note: Two of our country dining tables (the Trestle Table and the William and Mary Dining table) utilize "breadboard" ends. The purpose of these ends is to keep the tabletop flat, and to provide a finished appearance. Our craftsmen mortise and tenon the ends to the tabletop, with the grain running in opposite directions.
The expansion and contraction tendencies of the tabletop throughout the seasons are normal for solid wood construction. this means that the center panel of the table will expand beyond the length of the breadboard ends in the humid months, and will contract inside the breadboard ends in the dry months. Again, this is a normal condition of this type of construction.
