This project was for a traditionally handmade refectory table in a French style.
The client wanted a traditionally made dining table but in a lighter French farmhouse style.
The Commission for a Handmade Refectory Table
They had been looking for such a table for approximately 18 month’s, but couldn’t find anything that fitted their idea or dimensions. So after searching the web they found my site and made contact. I sent them some sketches of ideas and they were really taken with one of them which materialised into the table in the photos below. The tapered legs and lighter center stretchers that connect the legs, give the handmade table a gentler elegant look.
Handmade Refectory Table
Coupled with the beautiful character in the solid Oak top I think it makes for a lovely piece and was a pleasure to create. I hope you like it as much as they do.
