A classic design custom crafted to my client’s specifications. The design is clean and simple but full of character in a deep rich custom color. This table measures 42 inches wide by 82 incehs long by 30 inches tall. The table is crafted with reclaimed heart pine full of character with the old circular saw marks and other character marks from it’s former life. The legs are tapered on two sides to provide a clean sleek look and still provide a rock solid foundation. The top is comprised of 4 individual boards attached to the apron and support members. Elongated holes will allow the boards / hardware to freely move with the changing seasons, humidity, and temperature. The color is not a stain but rather a custom mixed dye. I took a sample to my client’s home for review and she liked a particular shade of color in one area of the sample. The only way to achieve this color is by custom mixing dyes of different colors and quantities until the correct color is achieved. I spray on the dye in as many as 10 very light coats called toner coats so that the color slowly builds up the final required color. Patience is a virtue with this process but it yields exactly what my clients want, no exceptions. The table is finished with 3 coats of a satin clear acrylic poly sprayed on. This table will see many family meals and gatherings for generations!!
