French Farmhouse Refectory Table

I really enjoyed the commission for this handmade refectory table in solid character Oak  with Ash frame chairs  and ‘pippy oak’ back. – Liaising with the client without actually meeting them is something  I do quite a lot  and seem to have a clear  insight into their specific needs.  Building up a picture of the individual requirements and then producing work that  receives the response below is always tremendously heartening. The commission now resides in France

Dear James,

I am always willing to give you a testimonial if you wish at some time in
the future.

Bearing in mind we have never met, been to the workshop or inspected any of
your work other than the website, I can only say that your interpretation of
what we were seeking was “spot on”. We absolutely adore the table and
chairs and so do all the people, French and English alike, who come to have
a meal with us at the house. Without fail they all compliment on the
quality and most of all, how comfortable the chairs are, even after a 4 hour
I am attaching some pictures for you and hope they will be of assistance.
I have some other projects in mind for you James when time and funds permit.
