Custom Walnut Farm Table
This custom dining table was designed for a customer who had a large dining room and needed the ability to seat between 8 and 12 people comfortably.   The table is built with heavy tapered legs, a beaded apron, a matching four board walnut top and matching company boards. The overall size of the main table is 108" x 52" x 30" high.  Two additional company boards can increase the length to 144".   The top of this table and the company boards were built from a six board matched set  (six 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 14-18" wide on average with beautiful coloring and grain patterns. The corners of the top were rounded to follow the contour of the table base.

Hand shaped tapered legs
Legs jointed to apron with pinned mortise and tenon joints.
Lower edge of aprons is beaded
Table edge profile and shape of top can be selected from many styles.
