I tried a little experiment with furniture design. I made a little side table with trestle legs instead of straight legs. The case for the drawers is also suspended from the table top.

Trestle Side Table
I got the idea to build a set of dining room sideboard tables based on the same basic design as the trestle table I made for our dining room set. This was a little test to see whether the design would work and how such a piece would look. The one difficulty was to get the table to stand flat without wobbling on such narrow feet. I had to assemble the table completely, and then plane off the bottoms of the feet to make it stand square. I think it came out very nice.
