Large Trestle Style Table
¶ Picture 17 shows a large library table that is practically a companion piece to the round table pictured in Picture 13. In this case, however, the natural massiveness of the construction is emphasized rather than modified, although the severity of the solid ends is softened by the curved lines and open spaces which serve to take away all appearance of clumsiness. The projecting tenons and keys form a suitable structural decoration and add to the strength, of the piece. A strong brace just beneath the top keeps the ends firm while the lower shelf acts as another brace.
