AN OAK TABLE with turned pedestal supports on slab feet, joined by a central stretcher. The shaped cross arms, under the planked and cleated top, are joined by a pair of plain rails. A much later version (17th century) of the medieval trestle table, shown elsewhere on our website. In this example the pillars are turned into a simple dropped baluster shape and the whole structure is fixed permanently together.
