Plans for this graceful trestle table by Charles Durfee can be adapted to reflect the design of your choice, from Shaker to Colonial. Techniques include hand-cut through-mortise and -tenon joints and machine-cut breadboard ends. Instructions describe how to size tenons and cover each stage of construction, from lumber milling to final finish. Simple instructions on dimension modifications enable you to seat more or fewer people as your taste and needs require.
