Went from this pile
I’ve finally finished it.
I have dreamt about a tressel table for 6-7 years now.
Partially finished my workshop. Enough to get heat in it and build things.
Finished tearing down barn Oct 30.
Used 6×6 beams for legs
Cut 4×6 smaller for tressel supports. (These were from under walls. Been sitting on concrete for 100 years) I was amazed at the shape they were in. In a 48×28 barn I salvaged 1/2 of them.
The table top is from hayloft joists. We had issues with broken nails. I ripped the narrower to do glue up. Hit all kinds of rusty broken nails. Nothing re sharpening didnt fix. (I sharpen my own)
The table is 74” l x 42” w x 30” high.
Im guessing it weighs 300-400 lbs.
I made the legs removable to transport. Held together with tressel wedge.
Left all nail holes in edges exposed……..people here suggested it that way.
