The client was looking to upgrade his dining room table in his South End home. He was hoping for an 8' live edge walnut table that could extend to be 10'. This table seats 10 people, and 12 with the extension. At Cannon Hill Woodworking we work closely with the team at Berkshire Products to select the nicest slabs for our clients. In this case, we provided our client with an array of options at various price points, and then he personally made the trip to Sheffield, MA to select the slab. It was shipped to us the following week.
The size of this black walnut table, the design of the base, and the size of the extender were very important in this instance because the table was going in the kitchen, in a corner which already had a built in bench. There was only 60" until the doorway, but the clients wanted to be able to seat 8 at the table when they hosted. So we made them a 24" table extension, which only we can do because of our proprietary locking extension hardware that is super strong at virtually any length of extension.
The base for this live edge walnut cocktail table was a fun one to build for Cannon Hill's Sam O'Leary. All hand carved. The client came to us with the design for the cocktail table. We happened to have some live edge walnut in the shop and we pulled it all out and sent her photos of the options for how we could construct the top. It is a triple book match, meaning three pieces of lumber together, with two live outside edges. For style, we left the sapwood stripes in the middle.
We started with several potential designs for this L shaped walnut desk. It is 6 feet by 8 feet. 24" deep on one side and 36" deep at the other side. We went back and forth with the client, and he taped it all out on his floor. His family had moved into a new home and this alcove section of the basement was going to become his home office. Right down to the end we were tweaking the dimensions of the desk. When we put it in place, it was a perfect fit, and has the exact dimensions that the client decided would work best for his work flow.
The client saw a walnut table that we made on our website and wanted to replicate it to her dimensions. This table is 84" x 38" wide so it comfortably seats 8 and easily squeezes 10 people. The client was very specific about wanting dark boards. Since we select all of our walnut by hand from the mill, we were able to make this walnut table with virtually no light colored sapwood in the top. Some clients specifically ask for extra sapwood- they love the caramels mixed in with the browns of walnut. Therein lies the beauty of custom- you get what you want.
This live edge walnut table is a "book match" meaning it's made from putting together sister slabs from the same tree. Sister slabs are slabs that come from the same section of the tree. The table is 66" long by 32" wide. It fits the space well. The client came to our showroom looking to put together a table of this nature, and he was also hoping to support a local company which is exactly what we are. All of the wood for our live edge furniture is sourced locally and it makes its way to us through distributors or sawyers who operate and live in New England.
This walnut dining set was one of our favorite projects to date. There is really only one way for your seating to truly match your table and this is a perfect example. The bench and table have matching walnut stacked pedestal bases. These ornate bases are incredibly sturdy, and entirely handmade. The client came to use with general designs in mind for the pedestals and the chairs.
