Shaker Trestle Table
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 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. Available in 6' and 8' versions. The 6' length will seat six people, and the 8' length will seat eight comfortably. Height is 29". Width of top is 33". Shown in our standard oil and wax finish.
