In this case the client came to us with a very specific need. He is a small business owner with a home office with a composite conference table that works for his office meetings. However, when he hosts dinner parties, he clears the room and uses it as a dining table. Typically he puts a table cloth to cover the other table.
This is a simple, clean, sleek design that is still sturdy and prominent, flawless in every way. The stainless steel base was custom made in house and polished to perfection. The walnut top is a 1.625" thickness and has a lacquer spray finish, the most commercial of our finishes. The base is welded stainless steel, custom made to the specs of the designers who commissioned this table. We carefully protected the table and delivered it to a shipper on the Cape, and only a few days later received these photos of the table in Nantucket.
The pedestal bases we make here at Cannon Hill Woodworking for any dining table are completely custom. That beings we can draw options for you, or you can provide a photo to match, or you yourself can take a stab at drawings. This walnut dining table has a pedestal base that began with a drawing on our end, and then the designer took our drawing and made her own redline drawing changes. That simple. It requires a little imagination, but when these walnut table bases were delivered they were absolutely gorgeous.
This is likely the most flawless live edge walnut slab we have ever encountered. Not a blemish! Not a crack, not a spot of bark! The walnut slab was originally twelve feet long. It was shipped to us by Berkshire Products after being carefully selected by the client who drove out to the Berkshires to see it in person. The plan for the table was to do a 7' base table, with two same-slab 18" extensions. There was a 24" offcut that we are going to turn into a coffee table. So when the extensions are on the table, it is 10' long and seats a minimum of 12.
Classic! ... This walnut table is a classic design- tried and true. This is the can't-go-wrong walnut table design. This is the we-might-move-to-an-entirely-different-style-of-home walnut table design. This is a walnut table with a skirt and square leg assmebly- built to a custom size with the clearance of the room and the size of the family in mind. Clean, simple, sturdy, beautifully crafted, incredible grain pattern, subtle and honest finish.
What incredible figure in the grain of these walnut boards! At Cannon Hill we hand select every single board for every single table. Not only does that create less waste, it ensures you get a carefully selected and beautiful table! Other table makers, when they get to the level of production that we are, begin to order their wood from the mid-west to save money. They pick irresponsibly, farm-factory walnut trees that don't have the kind of incredible character you see on Cannon HIll's tables. Sure we could save a few dollars, and many hours each month but what's the fun in that!?
Bastogne walnut is a hybrid of the California Claro and English walnut. These trees aren't cultivated, rather they occur naturally in the wild. They are rarely found in general, and very rarely seen on the East Coast. They grow to be very large. We've actually made a pretty magnificent 12' Bastogne walnut table previously to working on this disc cut "cookie" as it's called. The disc cut on this custom coffee table is approximately 31" around. The walnut cut came to us with some abnormality to the shape that we cut out and blended to make a more uniform shape for the coffee table top.
This project came to us from an awesome client who also happens to be an interior design professional remodeling her own kitchen and living room. Here at Cannon Hill Woodworking, some of us come from a professional remodeling background, but remodel is not what we do as a group because we are very much set up as a workshop operation. We make furniture for the most part. That being said, we do build accent pieces and install them. We've done many bar tops and live edge shelves and walnut kitchen island tops for example.
