Trestle Table and Occasional Table by David

Here’s a trestle table (Anna White Design) and a small natural edge/black pipe base table made from mesquite I cut from my ranch and had milled at a local saw mill. The trestle table top is 40″ x 84″ and is 1 3/8″ thick with bread board ends.  The small occasional table has a natural edge and both are finished with the same finish you had used on your secretary.

Live Edge Coffee Table by Drew

So this is my second furniture build and is a walnut slab coffee table for my parents.  I think the table turned out great really like how it looks with the metal legs. I also like how the legs do not over take the overall look which is what i was going for I want your eye to mainly focus on the slab itself.
