In this recent blog, I’m going to take you through some of the processes required to create a beautiful bespoke handmade extending refectory style table in pippy Oak. Here at Quercus Furniture it is our aim to use only the finest materials. The chosen timbers are sourced and selected personally to ensure quality and that they match, as close as possible, the client requirements and vision.
The clients had fallen in love with some images of pippy Oak tables on my website and required the handmade table to be extending and in a refectory table style. After a few phone calls to my local sawyers and saw mills and a couple of visits I was delighted to discover some beautiful pippy Oak boards that are going to be perfect for the commission.
After being in the kiln for a couple of weeks to bring the moisture content down to a workable 10 – 12 percent, the boards for the bespoke handmade table in pippy Oak commission were delivered to my workshop to begin the project.
First job is to size the boards using the good old chalk line and skill saw (Oh for a table saw).
Photo’s are coming but I’m having a glitch uploading them at the moment!!
Ok, so I’ve managed to post some photos of the pippy Oak boards in their raw state. (somehow they’ve ended up at the top of the blog!! I’ll take another lesson….).
At first glance they made not look like much, but I’ll stick my neck out and say they will turn in to thing of beauty. The bespoke handmade table in pippy Oak project begins.
