A refectory table is a long narrow table supported by heavy legs or trestles connected by stretchers, used originally for dining in monasteries in Medieval times.
In the Late Middle Ages the table gradually became a banqueting or feasting table in castles and other noble residences.
Craftsmen commonly used walnut or oak, using chestnut wood for a refectory table however is not that common.
