Maple trestle table

Plain and simple, we needed a larger dining table to replace our narrow, shaky, and small one. While the old one had a certain Tudoresque charm, it was not a fit for our decor (aka the other stuff I have made). A lighter color was requested and the options were quickly reduced to maple. Light in color, makes a solid table, should hold up well. Turns out it also makes a right heavy table. 

Dimensions are typical: 30" high, 40 inches wide, and 90 inches long. The top is 6/4 maple and the trestle parts are 8/4. Final thicknesses were about 1 1/8" for the top and 1 5/8" for the trestle parts.
