Trestle Table Addendum

The table I was viewing was erroneously referred to as a trestle table by me. Apparently the pseudonym 'trestle' was not adopted for that type of table until 1910. So I'll have to find another name for that type of breakdown table. Perhaps it doesn't have a specific name, but it appears to have been used for armoring tables, as well as at tents and campsites. (thus far anyway) For now, I've changed it in my projects list to a 'table' until I can find something more specific.
