Our most recent project was a big one. It consisted of a pedestal table with two captains chairs, four armless and a buffet. Everything was made from gorgeous black walnut. The incredible figure in this wood was stunning. The table base was hand shaped with a unique joinery on the bottom. The top had a natural edge created with stipeling to give it more of a natural look. The chairs were our most popular dining chair design that involves hours of hand shaping and carving. The buffet was approximately 7ft long with natural walnut log legs on the front, walnut twigs used on the bottom aprin, antlers used on the doors and antler knobs used on the self closing drawers. The tops of both the table and buffet had beautiful figure, as can be seen in one of the pictures. This set looks outstanding in its new Texas home.
