The knock-down trestle is a sturdy and versatile table design that dates back to the Middle Ages. In our version, two tapered wood pins hold the components together with friction. These wedges can be easily removed with the tap of a mallet (or a ham hock) to break the base down into four portable flat pieces for easy storage. Quickly set it up for dinner and then knock it down to make room for the dance party.
