Our Trestle farmhouse tables complement a variety of homes, from a bright beach bungalow to a massive stone French Country estate. Our trestle farmhouse tables are elegant and offer ample open space underneath for legroom. They are quickly becoming one of our top sellers because of this feature. These tables demand space of their own and are called to be the center of décor in a room. They work well in a banquet or with a built-in bench as well. Our trestle farmhouse tables come with 1 ¾” thick wood tops, and breadboard ends. All our table tops are hand planed and finished in a variety of stains, colors, and combinations.
All lumber is purchased in maximum width and in the rough from local lumberyards. It is carefully selected and milled in our shop. This allows our optimal use of our wood selection, ensuring most of the wood is used in both width and thickness, so there is little waste. We strive to leave as much of the natural character in each piece created.
All pine table tops are hand planed and our hardwood tops are all hand scraped. We then distress and sand all edges for an aged, worn unique one of a kind look. All painted pieces are also distressed and sanded for a worn look.
Our bases feature mortise and tenon joinery as well as newer techniques such as metal brackets and machine threaded inserts and bolts. Sliders and other hardware are used to allow for wood movement, which is so critical in solid wood furniture.
The finish is where we incorporate commercial grade lacquer as well as using a custom six-step aging process. These steps create a believable antique reproduction, which is protected against water, heat, and wear and tear for years to come.
Determining the best Size Carolina Farmhouse Trestle Table for your space:
So much of making your dining room look great is creating the right balance of furniture and negative space. As you look around your room, consider the amount of space you have to work with and choose your table size accordingly. Take good measurements and factors in the furniture you have in the room such as hutches or buffets, as well as any pieces you may add down the road. On average, you’ll need 24 inches per person for chair placement between the legs. After deciding what size best fits your needs and home, check out our online seating chart here and choose from our standard sizes, or create a custom size. We are happy to talk through dimensions with you to ensure you get a good fit!
We also offer Extension options for your Carolina Farmhouse Trestle Table:
We offer 18” – 24” extensions for all our farmhouse tables. This is a great way to add seating space for those times the company joins your family around your dining table. These extensions allow you to have a smaller size table for your daily life. We’ve found that in a closed room, a fixed table works best, but in open-concept spaces, extensions work really well. These two end pieces rest on support beams that pull out from the ends of the table. They need to be stored away separately when not in use.
