Slide-Out Trestle Table
This modern twist on a traditional design makes room for extra seating. And with a few simple techniques, you'll have the table done quickly.
The inspiration for this table comes from traditional trestle table design. It features a large top with breadboard ends on a sturdy base. But it has an interesting twist — each breadboard end slides out to accept a leaf.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
