Handmade Square Dining Table Project – Part 2

Handmade Square Oak Table1.8 square handmade table has finally been completed and delivered!!! The base jointing was by ‘draw tenons’, beefed up with glue blocks and because of it’s unwieldy size, corner braces. Finished the piece with an ‘own recipe’ stain, hard wax/oil then beeswax. I think the client was quite pleased with their handmade table –  It’s arrived and it fits!!!! It looks superb. Thank you thank you thank you x.   Myf and Andy

Handmade Oak Dining Table

 

Handmade Square Dining Table Project

So the  1.8m square handmade dining table top is finally up! In consultation with the client we decided not to have my usual biscuit and peg jointing technique. As the top is made up of 8 quality oak boards, the amount of handmade wooden pegs/dowels needed to joint the top together would have been more like ‘join up the dots’ rather than ‘hey, what a fantastic grained oak top’.

So we’ve employed the ‘loose tongue’ technique (there’s a joke in there somewhere) and it’s worked bang on, belted & braced underneath for generations of use. Check out the picture. The base is coming next……………..

Square Table

Hi All,

Glad you liked the new website – Gold Stars go to Neven and everyone who helped with comments, thank you.

So this is my first ‘blog’ , here goes –

I’ve just received a commission for a 1.8m square Oak handmade table. I’m making a start as soon as the Oak –  that I’ve sourced from one of my timber merchants – arrives and will keep you posted (with pictures) on it’s progress.

Cheers for now

James

New website launched

After spending years making tables we thought it was about time to make a new website to showcase all our latest work.

Hope you like it as much as we do.
