Round/Oval Pedestal Bases

Sophisticated Walnut Oval on Beacon Hill

Our clients on this project were updating their gorgeous Beacon Hill home, and came to us looking for a dining table that could match the elegance of the interior. They had done a brilliant job of maintaining the sophistication typical of the neighborhood while also creating a fresh, livable space for themselves. Happily, that’s exactly the mix that we strive for in all our work.

Circle-to-Racetrack White Oak Table with Black Oil

Sometimes the most difficult part of a project has nothing to do with what happens on the shop floor where we do our builds. Landing on a design that fulfills all the needs of a client’s home requires careful attention to the space and a thorough understanding of how they use it. Whether our clients have very particular aesthetics or prefer to allow decisions like materials and finishes to occur as a consequence of other factors, the functional design of a piece is the essential core of everything we make.

Enormous Triple-Bookmatch Walnut Oval

Anyone who sees this sort of table will first and foremost notice its scale. At eleven feet long and six and a half wide, a piece of this size is a per se showstopper. Even if the grain and figure in these particular boards were unremarkable, which they are not, it would be impossible to enter the home and not marvel at the sheer presence of furniture this grand.

Classic Breakfast Nook Oak Table

Here at Cannon Hill, we build in a huge variety of styles depending entirely on what our clients’ needs are for a given space. We build in innovative styles and traditional ones. Our clients on this project had come to us previously for a dining table with more modern styling, but this sunny breakfast banquette called for a table that felt more of a piece with the aesthetics of the kitchen, which featured plush, throwback upholstery and classic millwork.

Modern Oak Dining Table and Base

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a table like this one than the modern home on Massachusetts’ South Coast where it now sits. With a beautiful combination of contemporary design and traditional seaside tones, the house offers a perfect marriage of the new and the familiar. Basking in the sun with a gorgeous view down to the water, we hope the table will do the same.

Extending 48" Round Oak Table

This table, a 48” diameter round that can extend as much as 48” to a full eight-feet long, took a lot of work from our lead designer and engineer, Sam. With a growing family in Boston’s South End, our homeowners wanted a “forever” table that they’d never need to replace, but they also needed it to serve a few functions at once. With space at a premium, the clients wanted this table had to be functional - that is to say, not too big - on a day-to-day basis, but they also wanted to be able to host family for holidays.

Ocean Views for this Round Oak Kitchen Table in Osterville

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).
