Antique Country French Farm Table ~ Trestle Table was fashioned using time-honored techniques handed down for centuries from solid, old-growth oak to literally last for generations!  Thick planks of the dense wood comprise the top, which is just shy of eight feet in length.  The top is held by a structure of four columns resting upon lateral timbers with cut down edges to make them foot-friendly.  Assembly is courtesy of pegged mortise & tenon joinery, a method proven by many centuries of continuous use in Europe.  The legs are connected with a single timber, or trestle, held in place with paddle shims cut in a wedge shape so that every 20 or 30 years one can give them a whack and tighten up the table for another couple of decades of daily use!
