      Tried lots of different ones, but all were not very comfortable. Research online and found them locally in vancouver area, called Knock on Wood. They handle all sorts of custom made furniture and they several different windsors. Not cheap, but much less than what they were wanting on line. Chairs are one of those things you really have to sit in, so on line was not really practical. They will stain them various colors of your choice. And they are really comfortable with the high backs.

        I love that table, did you design it yourself or off of plans?
        I live about 15 minutes from Carlwood and never heard of them. Do they sell to the public and how are the prices?

          Just some fast gluing, had help with lining things up, no friskets on main. Let it set up for a day, took a good blade in a skill saw and put a guide down to trim the ends (make sure your skill saw is 90*), drilled large forester bit holes in main piece and the cross members, chisel out channel between them and used friskets in the joints too. They call them 'countertop connectors' got some Richelieu hardware here in vancouver area, had some from lee valley, but they broke, not strong enough. (see photo). Again, let set up for full day. then took belt sander and went cross grain to take down the highs, really ground down the bottom, same to top, more careful and slowly fine-tuned the paper grit, then switched to hand sanding, took a while. A Note: Cross member between legs is lag bolted, then end pieces are attached with kreg screws on bottom and with one long heavy screw in middle of it, then one plug to cover it. These are removable if dismantling is needed. I designed table from some photos I saw in magazine, drafted up full scale in adobe illustrator program (mac) then new how much material to purcharse and pretty much stayed with layout. I can give you drawings if you want. trestle table joints5.jpgtrestle table joints4.jpgtrestle table joints2.jpgtrestle table joints3.jpg
