The Burns family recently asked me to build them a new dining table and two matching benches. Their table top is ~2″ thick red oak with a ship lap construction and a live edge. The trestle legs are going to be a mixture of a 1800’s barn beam and 2″ thick walnut. The stretcher is live edge quarter sawn white oak. It will be pegged with poplar and ebony stained poplar dowels. The benches will feature the same ~2″ thick red oak top and walnut / barn beam legs. The stretcher is to be determined, though will most likely also be white oak like the table.
The table is 62″ x 42″ x 30″
The benches are 60″ x 13″ x 18″
They have also requested a cherry coffee table. Their coffee table features two pieces of live edge cherry with a third middle piece. This table will also be joined together with ship lap joinery. There may also be a white oak live edge shelf about 3″ up from the bottom of the ebony stained legs.
The coffee table is 42″ x 26″ x 18″
