Trestle Table | New Yankee Workshop
Norm builds an easily-disassembled, cherry trestle table. Go to to see measured drawings for all projects
After a look at a pine trestle table in a Shaker house on the island of Nantucket off the Massachusetts coast, Norm constructs his own easily-disassembled trestle table of cherry. Cherry is a hardwood which, if kiln-dried, resists twisting or shrinking over time. Norm shows how to glue up the boards that comprise the expansive table top and demonstrates how to make the two trestles and the stretcher which connects them.
