Bespoke handmade table with intricate bulbous legs is a request from a client that I have been working with for some time now. The original remit for a made to order table was to be in the traditional handmade refectory table style i.e. four corner legs and a connecting centre stretcher in solid character oak. However, after a shopping trip to find soft furnishings for their beautiful new home the clients spotted a table with a base that they both really liked (see photo). The problems were that it wasn’t handmade in oak and not to the desired size. So they took a photo of the table, sent it to us at http://www.quercus-furniture.co.uk/ to see if it was possible to style a handmade table similar to the design but in-keeping with their requirements of dimensions and in solid oak.
As a table maker this request is quite common and serves as a useful tool in understanding client design preferences.So the cutting list has been made and the timber sourced and ordered – so watch this space as the commission progresses.
