Description

Trestle table. Table top has bread-board ends. Underneath there is a support beam joined with the table legs and secured with two wooden pegs. One side has two additional pieces of wood to stabilize cracks in the tabletop. Trestle beam is bisected by a decorative support. Similar, but larger decorative supports are screwed on either side of the table legs. Trestle standards/legs are turned. At base of standards are two feet set opposite one another creating the appearance of a half-circle. Below three of the four feet are additional wooden supports of varying heights for balance. Stained dark brown.
