Detail of Replica Medieval Trestle Table showing the support pedestals with their hand cut 'Early English' mouldings, including what is technically termed as a water-holding base, occassionaly seen on crown posts in the roofs of buildings erected during the thirteenth century. Also note the carved masks at the end of the support cross bars, which a diligent observer may spot running along the parapets of some medieval churches. Incidentaly, the oak settle in the background was made by us and we also laid the old  terracota floor on which they stand.
