This table is dark, but not quite as dark as the photos make it out to look. The stain is called "Ebony" which is a dark, dark brown and the top coat is an oil-based-urethane which gives it a little more of a satin sheen. This is a fairly straightforward, custom "modern farmhouse" table set. This style is becoming increasingly popular (trust us, we know!). It's something about the combination of the old wood, with all it's incredible character, and the modern look of metal legs, that works really well to make this reclaimed oak table modern, but not tacky, and classic, but not boring. What can we say, modern farmhouse is here to stay.
This table has 3" breadboard ends. These are done in the correct manner, which still allows the table to expand and contract throughout the seasons.
The reclaimed oak that we buy for our tables in hand picked. Each board is carefully selected and reviewed before we buy it. This ensures a high quality, flat, top that will have all the character that people want to see in a reclaimed oak table. In this case the client brought samples of her kitchen island stone to the Cannon Hill Woodworking showroom. She wanted the stain on her reclaimed oak table to blend with a certain dark brown on the island and counters. So we set about sending her samples. Three rounds of samples.
We have a very reasonably priced "stain sample program" whereby we'll commit to sending you all sorts of samples. The thing is, you could pick a sample in our showroom, or just use color wheels, but there is no substitute for us taking an offcuts from your actual table, and applying the stain and finish, and mailing it to you so you can hold it in your house. The lighting will hit it at different times, and at night your room lighting will affect the finish differently as well, so it's good to really take care in what you select.
Here's another modern farmhouse table we made:
