The Tripod Trestle Table is designed and made by one of our design partners, Dovetailors. They are a bespoke furniture maker based in West Yorkshire.
Every element of the glass top tripod trestle desk is selected and constructed with attention to beauty and strength. Dovetailors hand-select the 2.5” thick solid wood from which the legs of the trestles are cut. They are tapered and parts of the rail are hand-planed and hand-carved.
Dovetailors has chosen the traditional jointing technique of loose tenon, which they have reinforced with steel for sturdiness and durability. In addition to the inherent stability of any tripod design, Dovetailors has built micro-adjusting bespoke stainless steel glass supports into the trestle legs, which will deal with the most uneven floor surfaces, including flagstones and old floorboards.
The trestles are hand-finished in Osmo Polyx Hardwax-Oil in clear satin. This finish has been chosen because it is made from natural oils and waxes, and is breathable and clear. This allows the true colour and character of the wood to shine through. And, it is hard-wearing and water-resistant, giving a family-friendly finish to the glass top tripod trestle desk.
