Custom Built Table Top

Dining room tables are statement pieces. Finding that perfect dining table that’s has the right size and style is often a difficult task.

One of our clients was looking for a mock distressed wood dining room table. When she couldn’t find exactly what she wanted in stores, she came to us. Together, we designed her ideal table top and then we hand-built the new piece.

The table is made of biscuit joined pine planks with recessed cross beams on the bottom for stability and strength. To achieve the distressed look, we used several techniques in many stages, including wire brushing, knot filling, edge chiseling and spot charring. All of the grooves are filled with a dark filler, then the entire table is stained in ebony and coated with two coats of food safe polyutherane.

The table top measures 43″ wide by 72″ long. Here are some before and after photos:
