Custom stain matching is also available if you are matching this to existing dining room furniture or antiques. Our matte varnish is a popular choice for our DutchCrafters trestle tables.
Check out the Indiana Ouray Double Pedestal Table with a live edge if you would like a more rustic, contemporary look.
Trestle tables are traditionally a plank board style top with two or three trestle bases to support the plank top. In the medieval times, trestle tables were built so that they could easily be transported and stored when not in use. Today we would call this a folding table or collapsible table.
The trestle table was the most popular table until the gateleg table made its debut in the 16th century. Trestle tables and pedestal tables remain popular today for their beauty and also the fact that guests don't need to work their seating around table legs.
Trestle tables traditional have a stretcher connecting the trestles at the ends. This stretcher is often hardwood but can be other materials such the wrought iron stretcher in the Indiana Ouray Trestle table. The stretchers then go through the trestles creating a keyed tenon for added strength and durability. Mortise and tenon construction is popular in our Amish furniture construction and is a technique that has been around since the beginning of furniture construction thousands of years ago.
