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.
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.
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.Click To See The Most Popular Trestle Table Styles
