My newest build, a Trestle Table!

I wanted a new challenge in the garage, so I tried my hand at building a trestle table. I stained the top a dark English Chestnut, followed by Hickory gel stain- both are by Minwax. For the bottom- I mixed my own charcoal gray.
This table is: 72" L x 32" W x 31" H. It's SOLD.
Let me know what you think- I love to hear from you.




  1. Gretchen,
    You are amazing! This is beautiful! Tom wants to know if you are Amish? :)

  2. Hi there! I love this table and everything that you do! Was wondering if you would be able or willing to make this for me by Thanksgiving? I know this is a rush so no biggie if not
    but I love this table! I am friends with your daughter from church. I was wondering though could you do the table even bigger to accommodate 10 people? I think 104" long. If you
    are up for it we would love a bench as long as the table too! Thanks so much and you are so very talented!

    1. Kristen,
      I would love to build a table and bench for you but I wouldn't be able to do one before Thanksgiving - Sorry.
      Let me know if you still want one and I can get started on it.
      If I make a table 104" long, I would recommend 2 benches each 50" because they are heavy. If you would like to come look at this table, just to check it, out let me know.
      I can do any color paint for the bottom and I have samples of stain for the top.
