Trestle Table

Hayden Smith

Inspired by mid-century joinery, this coffee table was designed to have a simple presence with subtle, intricate details throughout. The leg design is intended to be a hybridization of tradition trestle construction and a more modern silhouette and height. Slats of White Limba secure the two planks of Oak to create the top surface of the table. The slats serve to unite the table top with the legs as well as to add stability and strength to the form. Liming wax was used to fill the grain.
