Shaker-Style Tall Dining Trestle Table Woodworking Plan
With the popularity of kitchen islands, peninsulas, and breakfast tables in mind, we designed this multipurpose project. You can use it for morning coffee, meals, or anything you like. At 36" tall, the table's just right for standard 24" stools. And the 40"-long tabletop allows plenty of room for one person on each side. Adapted from an early Shaker-design, this handsome piece looks equally at home in both Contemporary and Country decors. If you'd prefer to modify this design to serve as a four-person dining table, we provide you with a sizing guide.
