Bespoke Pippy Oak Extending Dining Table

img_02401 img_02381 img_02371 img_02351My latest project was for an extending dining table, commissioned by a family who is currently renovating an 18th Century cottage which is having a contemporary style kitchen fitted. They required something in keeping with the age and character of the cottage but also in fitting with the new inside style and decor.

After consultation, we jointly agreed upon a traditional refectory style table in solid pippy English Oak with plenty of character but maintaining a  clean line look rather than the more traditional rustic approach.

So the agreed commission was for a Pippy Oak Extending Dining Table. The main table seats 8 formally, adding the extension leafs brings the number of seat placings to 12.

The table is as unique as the timber used and has its own natural identity which is formed from the beautiful pip and grain character of the Oak. Main table dimensions are 2.4m x 900mm. When extended the overall length is 3.3m.

The extending dining table arms are integral to the table base, so maybe pushed into the base when not in use. The extension leaves can also be stored separately when they are not in use.

One particular challenge was to maintain the light pale colour of the Oak chosen for the project which was required by the client. To achieve this, a clear hard wax oil was used as the finishing product, completed by a natural hard beeswax.

Completion

You can see the table in it’s the new setting in the pictures below which clearly show the natural beauty of the wood and the clean finish that the clients desired.  The clients were incredibly happy with their table and this was their response – “Hi James – Just wanted to say WE LOVE OUR TABLE, thank you sooooooo much”.

Here is a recent commission for a bespoke handmade live edge Oak dining table. The table was designed with a contemporary slate grey metal base to compliment the organic 3 board ‘pippy Oak’ top. A further decorative detail is the ‘butterfly jointing’ in the top surface to stabilise a split in the central Oak board.

The pippy Oak top exhibits plenty of ‘character’ with a wonderful grain pattern running through. The 2 outer boards were from the same plank, cut in half length-ways and then a central board spliced in to bring the whole dining table top out to the desired width. The table dimensions are 2.5m length x 950mm width x 770mm height with a 40mm thick pippy Oak top.

Large Oak Dining Table & Chairs

Hello everyone – let me fill you in on the latest Quercus Furniture news.  Autumn is here and people are starting to think about the perfect table to have their friends and family sitting around this Christmas.  Have a look at my range of beautiful oak refectory and contemporary tables and give me a call if you would like to discuss what I could make for you.

So after the beautiful contemporary English Elm slab table and the wonderful Arts & Crafts table commissions, the latest project is a traditional large handmade Oak refectory dining table and 12 chairs.

The commission was for a 12 seater (14 when required) traditional style Oak refectory dining table in solid Oak with plenty of character. The ‘frame’ chairs to be made in English Ash with an Oak back splat to complement the main table.  The handmade dining table is in the refectory style and is in solid character Oak.

Table dimensions are 3.6m long x 1.2m wide and 76cm high.

 

Tanyard Large Oak Dining Table

Large Oak dining table to a new design. The client requested a 3m 10 seater Oak dining table, without the traditional 4 leg at each corner design. To be relatively contemporary but constructed using traditional methods with clean timber and clean lines. I based the design on my appreciation and nod to the Arts & Crafts pieces that I have worked on/restored over time.

The client and myself are very pleased with the end result as it fulfills their vision and fits perfectly into the space that is now it’s home.

Just need to work on the chairs next!
