This Contemporary Oak Refectory Table was a commission from Helen at House 2 Home. The request was for a handmade solid oak bespoke refectory table but with an up to date contemporary look. The top needed to be 3 boards wide at 1m wide with a central ‘show’ board at 50cm wide! West & Sons of Petworth came up trumps and the table now frequents a London Mews House.
The Contemporary Oak Refectory Table was constructed using traditional mortise and tenon joints held in place by Oak dowels. Tabletop boards are biscuit jointed and glued, the top is detachable and held in position by wooden buttons which allow for timber movement through the seasons.The refectory table seats 8 and has modern square legs. The contemporary refectory table style wood is prime French Oak with a limed finish. The 3 board top has end cleats.
Contemporary Oak Refectory Table Dimensions: 2.4m x 1m – 40mm thick table top.
The client also ordered a Live Edge Coffee Table pictured below.
