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.
When a slab like this one comes through the door of our workshop, it’s pretty clear what our job is: get out of the way. And that’s not just because it was fully fourteen feet by four – it’s because when we see a live-edge slab as beautifully figured as this one, we want to make sure that the wood speaks for itself.
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 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 approximately 50" wide by 8 foot long walnut book match is two sister slabs that were shipped to us from our distrubutor after a collaborative section process with the client. When the slabs arrived in house, we took photos and marked the slabs with blue tape to ensure that the clients knew exactly where we planned to cut. Walnut bookmatched tables have a unique aesthetic and appeal, as they achieve this mirrored look that is really nice.
This table was quite a long process but the end result was really fantastic. We started with a general trestle design and provided the clients with multiple rounds of hand drawn design alternatives. We more or less ended up where we started, but it's part of some people's decision making process to feel like they've flirted with all the alternatives to then end up going with their gut. We next did a spec elevation CAD rendering for the clients so they could see proportions and think about leg and chair clearance.
We encourage our clients to get creative and to think outside the box. We've created a number of custom base shapes that might look quite simple on paper, but when you see then executed with black walnut they come to life in incredible ways. We are hoping these bases catch on and more and more people are interested in buying them. These walnut table bases are not cut in a curved shape out of a thick block of wood, which would be wasteful and less structurally sound.
