Modern Farmhouse Dining Table -My goal in designing and handcrafting this solid hardwood Modern Farmhouse dining table is for it to be the most beautiful furniture piece in your home.
Read how it is crafted
We make “Farmhouse” look good! Handcrafted with the highest quality materials (unlike most farmhouse style tables available today). As a classically trained furniture maker, I designed this table to outlast. Let me begin with the top which is constructed of 2” thick solid hardwood. All my lumber is purchased rough sawn from the mill. I carefully mill the hardwood to it’s final thickness in stages to allow the wood to adjust to its new environment. This process prevents cupping, twisting, warping and cracking found in all “big box store” DIY lumber. The boards for the top are carefully selected for the most beautiful grain orientation and then joined with wood glue and floating tenons. Breadboard ends (optional) are crafted with through mortise and tenon joinery and hardwood pegs. This old world technique helps keep your top flat, conceals the end grain and provides a handcrafted feel. The base of the table is also constructed of solid hardwood timber. The legs are a generous 3.75” thick and can either be splayed at a 5 or 10 degree angle, or left perpendicular to the top for a less modern more Farmhouse look. The stretchers are joined to the legs with mortises and concealed hardware that is plugged with solid wood dowels in the same timber species . This allows the base to be disassembled if it needs to be relocated. The top is finished with several coats of an oil/varnish and then buffed with paste with wax.
