SHAKER TRESTLE TABLES - CHERRY

Shaker cabinetmakers made the design of trestle tables more graceful by using arched feet and more convenient by raising the horizontal stretcher to allow for more leg room. This robust, yet graceful, example was likely first made at the Mt. Lebanon, New York Shaker community. The original, which has a pine top and a maple undercarriage, is now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

We make this Trestle Table entirely in clear solid cherry. Like the original, the top is a full 1 1/4" thick. Note the separate cross-pieces, called "breadboard ends", which we carefully peg in place to prevent the top from warping. The 7' version seats eight. Height is 29". Width of top is 33"; available in four lengths. Shown in Oil and Wax Finish.

Available as an unfinished kit and a "made to order" finished piece.

Kit is supplied with Oil Finish, rather than stain, to bring out the natural color of the cherry wood.
