Metal Legs

Walnut with Stainless Steel Base in New Nantucket Home

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.

Round Glass Top with Large Metal X Base

Yea, so the name of our company is Cannon Hill Woodworking, but that doesn't mean we can't orchestrate another type of table, because our steel work is all done in house and we can contract local companies for glass or stone work. So this table is a 72" round glass top, a huge, heavy 1/2" thick piece of tempered glass. So this base needed to be big, strong, and a serious visual centerpiece because the glass top is obviously see through.

Flawless Live-Edge Walnut with Same-Slab Extensions and Wishbone Base

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.

Reclaimed Oak Top with Ebony Stain and Metal X Base

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.

Bastogne Walnut Coffee Table with Criss-Cross Base

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.

Live Edge Walnut Table from Tree in Client's Backyard

This live edge walnut table started as a tree in the client's backyard in the Lars Anderson Park section of Chestnut Hill. The wood spent two years air drying at the mill. Typically fresh cut wood needs to air dry for one year per inch of thickness. When we were called, the walnut wood was stacked in their garage and we went to take a look and test the moisture content of the wood and allocate the material for the table top. The wood was in great shape.

Fifteen Foot Reclaimed Oak Table in Ipswich Barn

This is to date the largest table we've made. Fifteen feet of reclaimed oak. The top weighs over five hundred pounds! It took four of us to carry it into the home from the truck and 8 of us to flip it once we'd assembled the base. The barn that the client built in Ipswich is incredible- the exposed timber framing was reclaimed from a barn in Canada and shipped here. This table was longer than any reclaimed oak board we could get our hands on so it has staggered seams. For aesthetic, it has bowties and dowels throughout. 

Live-Edge Dining Table in the South End with Same-Slab Extension

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.
