Trestle Table plansFree Trestle Table plans - Back in the Middle Ages, diners looking for a place to set out the roast boar and mead took a practical approach -- they laid a few boards across two stands, much the way we'd place plywood across sawhorses at a picnic. Throughout the centuries, this simple design, known as a trestle table, took many ornate forms, but our version returns to basics. Its two pedestals are secured to a horizontal stretcher with stout tenons, locked in place by wedges. And, for a touch of Gothic character, we arched the stretcher and cut stopped chamfers in the stretcher and legs.
