custom tableGate Leg Table

This is a drop leaf, gate-leg table in reclaimed wormy chestnut. The design is simple.  The workings make it an heirloom. The wood, of sentimental value and supplied by the customer was rough, dirty stuff to work (serving it’s previous life as flooring in the Biltmore Hotel) but polished beautifully.  My favorite part is the hand cut wooden hinge. (Click the link or photo to see more pics.) It allows the legs to swing out 90 degrees and support the drop leaves. The thumbnail profile on the leaves’ edges conceals the joints at the fold and the entire undercarriage is of bulletproof dovetail construction to resist racking. Inspiration for the design comes from Edward Townsend circa 1765.   39 1/2 x 51 x 30 high.   Shaker style per customer request. Seats four comfortably and six tightly. Great tables for confined areas and can be done in most any style or period.  SOLD.


pedestal tablePedestal Table

This table is just as stable as any four legged table and provides plenty of leg room. Standing strongly upon precision joinery, the hand shaved pedestal is a pleasing form all on its own. A round top invites conversation. Add a Lazy Susan to make passing of food and drink effortless. Add my ergonomic ladder-back chairs for a comfort level around the dining table that says “conversation uncurtailed”.
The featured table top is in curly hickory, quarter sawn and book matched. Tradesmen refer to this as veneer but I like to refer to the process as lamination being that the show pieces are cut extra thick. This is no paper thin layer of material used to mask the underlying substrate. This method showcases the grain uniformity of production veneer and the peace of mind of solid wood. This is, in my opinion, the premier method to craft a table top.
The pedestal is constructed of red oak which has been hand shaved to leave tool texture marks and ebonized charcoal black to match the chairs that went with the set.
While this table was crafted as part of a custom set it can be crafted in your domestic wood of choice. Shown here in 60 inch diameter, it seats 6 to 7 comfortably.  $7800.00
