Re: [MedievalSawdust] Trestle table [2 Attachments]
What about making the mortice and tenon top connection with a point/wedge to the outside of the table? Thus, when weight is put on the table it would drive the m&t deeper against itself.

Hmm, apparently my first post didn't go through. I just wanted to join in on the discussion of trestle tables. I made this one a few years ago for a friend with a Russion persona. I used a single large cherry plank for the construction. The legs are zoomorphic as befits a Russian table. The table top is secured to the legs via tenons in the tops of the legs which fit into blind mortices in the cross-braces attached to the underside of the table top.
