I’m excited to announce the release of a much-anticipated DVD and Digital Download:  “Building the Collapsable Trestle Table with Will Myers”!

Will Myers came up with this original trestle table design, based on historical designs that he studied. But he decided to improve upon the designs and aesthetics that he found. Aside from it’s strength & light weight, what I love about this table is it’s ability to be easily collapsed and transported. It’s perfect for people who live in confined spaces and need a table that can be stored in a closet. I think it would also be mighty impressive for fancy picnics or football tailgating (SEC fans will understand). Craft fairs? Check. Assembly table for your workshop? Check. Elevated platform for table-top dancers? Check. (Yes, it’s that strong).

The five hour video shares many woodworking hand tool and joinery skills, including tusk tenons, breadboard ends, gluing up table tops with one clamp, mortise & tenon, flattening a table top with hand planes, using a spokeshave, using a beading plane, chisel work, etc…

You can purchase this DVD here or the Digital Download here. And to show our love and support for woodworkers, you can have the trestle table woodworking plans and cut list here for free. But Will and I would really love if you buy the video too!
