I finished this dining table and bench for a customer over the summer. It’s made from solid ash. The table itself is 7 feet long but has two 2 foot extensions that slide into each end. With the extensions inserted the table is a full 11 feet long. You can see the holes for them in the apron on the last picture. Matching plugs hide these when the extensions aren’t being used. She wanted a slightly distressed look. It’s finished with General Finishes stain and Arm-R-Seal.

Nice table – projects with the right scale and proportion just look better and this one is spot on even down to the bench height. Congrats. I really like working with Ash as well and it’s stable over time.

I love it. Are the extensions attached to the leaves?

Yes Tom. Each leaf is 2 feet with two extensions about a 20” long. They slide in two openings in the end aprons kind of like a forklift! There’s a video of how they work on my Instagram- @wildsidewoodworking
