Live Edge Pine Trestle Table

Knotty Pine Live Edge Table

Traditional Trestle Table

A few years ago, there was a devastating forest fire that ripped through the Black Forest, it burned a lot of homes in the area, and left the landscaped scared.  There are dead-standing trees throughout the area.  This table was built from one of those dead trees that was slabbed up after the fire for a client that lives in the area.   We have made several pieces from this tree.  For this piece, I built an entry table and used the live edge pine for the top, and Wenge for the bottom.

It is a traditional Trestle table style, that I sized to fit the entryway for my client’s home.  The main joinery holding the table together is a wedge driven through a tusk tenon.

The light-colored pine makes a beautiful contrast to the rich dark reddish brown of the wenge.
