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. 

 

Black Walnut Dining Set with Double-I Base and Chairs

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. 

Walnut Table with Cabriole Legs

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.

Live Edge Walnut Table with Trapezoid Metal Base

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.
