The grain of a maple tree slab swirls fluidly, creating unique eye-catching patterns. No two slabs are exactly alike which is why some people feel strongly that they want to see the grain pattern of their slab before they buy it. This is only truly possible if you buy your slab from a large distributor like Berkshire Product.
The base of this table is made from 12/4 oak built around a 4 x 4 steal beam. When connected by the top plate and fastened to the table, they create a rock solid, super heavy table that is built to last generations. This table required careful planning, and skilled execution. The table now lives in an incredible newly remodeled home in Osterville on Cape Cod. It was a provincial stain and a lacquer spray finish.
When we build custom stacked double pedestal trestle bases, they're always made custom. They take as much material and time to make as a table top, and they're truly works of art. We love building them. Usually we send people a number of hand drawings to get the conversation started, and then we work our way towards a final design. Our clients are always over the moon for their bases, and it's extra special knowing that they are completely one of a kind. Don't be fooled by companies that buy and assemble these and then paint or stain them to cover up that they're so cheap.
Sturdy and sleek, 60" Diameter, white oak table with a white-wash and lacquer spray finish. The white-wash is a product called "natural" from Rubio Monocoat. It can be topcoat finish, but this client wanted a spray finish for extra stain protection. The base is great for seating and we bulked it up a little from a previous design to ensure that it would be really solid and have no ability to flex (there is a lot of torque available on a round top like this and a pedestal base with such a thin profile at it's connection points).
A classic Cannon Hill reclaimed oak table. Nobody does it better than us. This table has an Early American stain and a lacquer spray finish. Corner legs are great for seating, and tucking chairs, and this aesthetic will never clash with any setting. It clean, easy, and classic. This table is made from authentic reclaimed oak barn beams that we hand select, de-nail, kiln dry, and then put a massive amount of love and labor into before we have a finished product ready for delivery. The client loved her table!
This is an awesome Claro Walnut slab! We used a portion of the table off cut for the same slab extension, which is our specialty, and the last bit of the slab to make a really cool little side table. The table has a lacquer spray finish. It has curved bases that we make by gluing up strips of walnut around custom made forms. The same slab extension system is fully removable so that there is nothing to see under the table when it's not in use which would ruin the clean effect of the live edge and the curved legs. But the brackets when installed are rock solid, and the effect is very cool.
This ash table was the brainchild of an architect who designed it on behalf of his friend and client for a newly remodeled condo overlooking Boston Harbor. The top is ash with a brilliant white wash. The top has a 45 degree bevel on all sides. The bases were made by a third party vendor, sourced by the architect, and installed and delivered by CHW. There are 50 lb sandbags inside each base, so the table is rock solid.
This handmade base consists of around 120 individually made pieces of cherry hardwood. The base was built in stages over a two week period. It's an incredible design that was sent to us by the client. Cherry gets darker with time, so given how sunny this room is in this newly remodeled home in Brewster, the table will take on some richer brown/mahogany tones over the next few years. The table has an oil finish.
This is the kind of project that we hope our clients will go for! It is bold, beautiful, expertly crafted, and unique.
Reclaimed oak oval with all the character you love to see in a reclaimed oak top. Cut to a custom oval shape. Bases are custom curved bases made from curved strips of wood. The bases are actually dozens of strips curved around a form, as opposed to single pieces of wood cut in a curve. It's a way cooler look and more structurally sound.
