Looking for pictures and/or plans for a trestle table utilizing crossbuck or sometimes called sawbuck ends rather than the typical trestle end uprights. Tried a number of early American furniture books with no success. The application would be a wide table (44") that would require a pair of posts on each end, and a pair of trestles, using that approach. The 'bucks would be wider than tall, perhaps 38-40" wide and 28-29" tall, but I think a cross lap joint would work. And of course the trestle tenon would help offset the crosslap joint's wanting to collapse.
Thanks for your help.
