Walnut Dining Trestle Table: Stretcher

While the most joinery occurs in the leg assemblies of this trestle table, its the stretcher that makes the whole design work. Resisting racking forces and providing a stable base all depends on the stretcher.

The stretcher joins the legs via a large scale through tenon that benefits from some drawbored pins as do most large scale joints, 

We are gonna use that same draw boring for the feet and the bridal joint,
