What FWW Issue has this Trestle Table?


My friend made this trestle table from plans contained in Fine Woodworking Magazine. He thinks he loaned the issue and it was never returned. I have 173 of the 181 issues and I have searched the on-line index and can not find it.
Here is a photo of the table (nice work eh?)

Can anyone help? He thinks it was from an issue from the last 3-5 years.
Thanks, Mark in Austin

I used Roy's link and got:
Trestle Table - Fine Woodworking - Issue 4/00 Page:74
Since I can't see the actual article I can't tell if it's the same table.

I can view the pictured table (first link) and figure out how to build it or improvise in order to build it. Mark, maybe your friend used the simple plans (Roy's link) and improvised or improved on the original plan when making his table. He obviously knows woodworking, considering his results, well enough to have done so. I'm sure you can do the same.

Thanks Sonny,
You might be right. Actually it is my friend who wants to make another table. (He gave the one in the link to his daughter.) He loaned the magazine to a friend who wanted to make one himself and it was lost.
It either that or since none of the FWW magazine readed recognize it, I assume he got it in another magazine.
Thanks everyone for your help... Mark

I can view the pic (first link) and build that table, maybe even with having to improvise some. Mark, maybe your friend used the original plan, Roy's link, and improvised or modified the plans when making his table. Considering his results, he is a good enough woodworker to have done so. I am sure you can do the same.

Mark, as good a job as your friend did on his table (first link), I highly suspect there may be a good possibility he may have improvised or improved upon the original plan (link two). It is not uncommon to find defects, poor design, poor esthetics or other misnomers in some plans, which can easily be modified or improved upon by a good woodworker.

There is a close match to this table in the book "Shaker Style Wood Projects" by Robert Sonday (Pub: Sterling) ISBN 0-8069-1386-X (paper) or 0-8069-1381-9 (hardback).
If you can't locate a copy, e-mail me.
