Cherry Farm Table
This cherry farm table was designed for a customer who wanted a well-built custom table to match their set of dining room chairs. The table was constructed from solid cherry with turned legs and breadboard ends.  The overall size of this table was 90" x 42" to provide comfortable seating for 8 - 10 people.  To ensure accurate period construction and details, the top of this table was built from a three board matched set  (three boards cut sequentially from the same log for excellent color and grain matching).  This represents a significant difference from readily available tables - the boards in this top were 14" wide on average with beautiful coloring and grain patterns. The table size, style, wood selection, and coloring can be customized to suit the customer's requirements.  

Custom turned legs  - customer may select profile.
Legs jointed to apron with pinned mortise and tenon joints.
Table skirts have a decorative bead around the lower edge.
Table edge profile and shape of top can be selected from many styles.
Distressing & tool marks can be added to the piece to create a natural aged appearance.
Table can be stained or left in a natural color.
Finished with hand rubbed varnish, buffed and waxed to a satiny sheen.
