Building a super strong, heirloom quality, rustic farm house trestle style kitchen table with timber frame mortise and tenon joinery and proper breadboad ends. No screws or hardware were used in its construction and it was built with a combination of power tools and lots of hand tools and hand cut joinery.

  1. Stunning, just stunning!! I used to think of myself as a woodworker until I started watching your videos… 😕😂

  2. FYI I am attempting to build a trestle table as my first real wood working project ever (perhaps a lofty goal) and I've been using your table and techniques as my holy grail to follow (minus using old-timey augers). 🙂 Awesome video and awesome table…I wouldn't know how to do a damn thing if I didn't watch this. Thanks!

  3. I’ve been on a TCC marathon. This is the first video I saw of your work when I first got into woodworking, then the mallets and coffee spoon. Needless to say, always highly impressed with your hand crafted work and not only do I learn something new with each video, every second is entertaining. Keep it up man.

  4. spend a lot of time to make this table. However, it turned out great..! Stain or not may be arguably I like the natural color.
    That table can last for generations to come.

  5. Beautiful piece. I come from a family of woodworkers (cabinetmakers and furniture builders) so I can truly appreciate the details of this mostly hand-tool build. With all those mortises, a good mortising bit or two would save a lot of time for you.

  6. Awesome joinery. I have one concern and that is the breadboard. Here in the midwest I would not pin or glue any part of the breadboard but the center. The table top will crack and split if the wood is not allowed to move.
