Benefits Of A Trestle Base Dining Table

Do you ever sit down to a beautiful table only to find yourself with a leg (not of the human sort) between your legs? Sounds like a less-than-conventional way to explain it but this is just one reason why so many people opt to Finishes and options.


Main benefits of selecting a trestle style base:


Generous Leg room

Depending on the trestle there are several plus’s about going in this direction. First, a trestle table does not require an apron which leaves much more leg room . If you are a leg -crosser you might want to strong consider this option or a pedestal base. Our trestle tables are a generous 27” from the floor to the underside of your table allowing for even arm chairs to easily glide under . Our trestles are set in 12” from the ends of the table as well which allow for easy seating at the ends.

More Spacious

Regardless of the size of your table, a table with a trestle base will sit one more person along the sides. This is a great option for people needing to maximize their seating capacity – particularly in small areas. Reason for this? You’re not having to place your chairs in between legs… Makes sense. Legs will “eat” up anywhere between 6”-10” of usable table surface.


Very stable

Regardless of the shape, a well made trestle is a much better option for large table than even the largest of pedestal bases. If you think about it, lets say you have a 75” round top and a pedestal base. The top of the pedestal may have a larger mounting plate on it but, even with that, think of the physics‘.. The entire weight of the table rests on however large that mounting plate is.. With a trestle base, the weight of the top is supported over a wider area thus making it much less susceptible for tipping.
