This gorgeous Claro walnut slab features a single-side extension, curved-leg bases, and a lacquer spray finish. As soon as this slab landed in our workshop we knew it would become a stunning piece of furniture. Claro walnut – actually a result of grafting and cross-pollination between eastern European and native American walnut species – grows in the American Northwest, and offers some of the most dramatic figure and coloration of any walnut variety.
This is an incredible 10' walnut table with a full frame trestle base design that is really functional and appealing. The table is sturdy and robust without being too farmhouse chunky. It's a slam dunk table and people are loving this design. We'll likely do many more. This table is 8/4 black walnut with an oil finish. It has one 24" extension to add two people to the table. The table now lives in a newly remodeled home in Jamaica Plain, Boston.
This table was a lot of fun. It's 60" x 30" with two 16" Extensions that remove completely. We put together a number of whitewashed sprayed samples for the client and she chose her favorites. The grain of the ash is still visible but the spray stain is able to achieve a white wash that is more thorough that you would see with a wipe on stain and clear spray.
This is an incredible single big leaf maple slab that has been cut into a rectangle with beveled sides and has a really gorgeous same slab extension. The table has a custom tripod pedestal trestle base with a white powder coat, and a lacquer spray finish. The table now lives in an incredible NYC apartment overlooking the Hudson River.
This reclaimed oak table is 9 feet long and has two 18" extenders. It has a very subtle brown oil tint. The bases are completely custom designed and handmade by Cannon Hill Woodworking's incredibly talented woodworkers. Each component cut, glued, assembled, and curved by hand from oil reclaimed lumber. They are a work of art and an incredibly sturdy and impressive table base than can support a big heavy top. This table now lives in Lexington.
This is another example of Cannon Hill building completely custom. This reclaimed oak table was designed through a collaborative process whereby we drew pedestal designs and the client mixed and matched between them. The table has one 24" extension to add two diners to the table. It was a custom brown wipe on stain, and a lacquer protective spray over it.
This white oak table was for a couple who'd recently gotten married and moved into a new place in Somerville. This is a really classic table design, but it just looks better when Cannon Hill Woodworking makes it. For starters we turned the legs in house, so they are made from the same material as the top. Other "custom furniture" companies in Boston would buy these legs from a 3rd party vendor, so material would not be an exact match and the proportions would not be to the client's exact specifications. In this case, the client actually made a computer mock up for us of the legs.
This was a really fun collaboration with the client, who had an idea for a glass table top and a walnut base that would extend. They knew what they wanted, and they tried to come up with a system for the extensions, for which we give them a lot of credit! Ultimately we used a hybrid of our patented table extension system to come up with an easy to use, fully removable system that is ROCK SOLID for a heavy glass top, and most importantly, out looks really nice and blends perfectly with the original design.
