Small Kitchen Table and Bench

This is a small kitchen table and bench that goes to the same client that commissioned the big 16 -foot table last summer. These pieces are very narrow – they need to be pushed out of the way when not in use and take up as little space as possible. There is a built in bench other side for seating.

If I was not restrained by locked in dimensions – I would have made the table wider and longer – and the top would have had more overhang end to end – but that’s part of the challenge as a custom furniture maker – make things as best you can given the restraints

I always enjoy your work. When I grow up I want to be able to craft wood like you do. It truly is amazing.

Your furniture is so ~touchable~ and sumptuous. Even with design constraints, this table and bench have a classiness that would turn heads in any house. Thanks for showing us.

Very nice work as we’d expect from you Darrell. It appears the dimensional constraints didn’t constrain you at all here; until you said it was a custom piece, I thought maybe this was a new addition to your list.
