Table No. 01


These are a few shots from the build of our custom dining table that Toni and I decided to make after being dissatisfied with several aspects of the offerings we found locally.

The top is a heavy-duty worktop similar to a butcher block, and the legs are flat iron segments welded by hand in a trapezoidal shape. Toni sourced the legs, I sourced the top. We assembled them and I stripped the factory-applied finish with a random-orbit sander. The edges and corners were sanded to a pleasingly smooth finish and I stained it to a warm brown. We chose a set of 4 woven wire chairs to compliment it – one is barely visible in the second shot.

We hope to have this for many years, and to have many family dinners around it.
