What do you do when you have a bay window dining nook and you can’t put a round or square table there?? You get one custom made to fit the shape!! My client had some built in seating / storage and I crafted this custom shaped dining table for them.

100% of my work is custom and I build my projects based strictly on my customer’s specifications from size, shape, color, and wood selection. I templated and measured the angles for the nook for a custom fit. The curved front edge of the table mimics a curved island in the adjacent kitchen. The edge profile is the sam as the profile on the granite kitchen counters. They wanted a simple base system with only two legs for this table which measures 8 feet by 5 feet at the widest and longest points. The leg system is simple and supported by 1/4 inch steel flat bar curved and attached to the bases. All of the joinery for this table is mortise and tenon which is standard on all of my work.

The table is made from yellow pine, client’s preference, and wire brushed to give the texture of reclaimed wood. The color is a two step pigmented stain application. The finish is 3 coats of a satin acrylic poly sprayed on.

Nifty looking table. It almost looks like an old Knight’s Shield or something like that. :)

Yeah I guess it could huh, haha! It’s definitely an irregular shape. But it fits their built in nook seating and flows well with the kitchen. Most definitely out of square!! HAHA!!
