Expanding Dining Table

This table was custom made for a client in New York City. He wanted an expandable table that would fit a particular space in his apartment. The table is made of solid cherry and is designed to expand from 52 inches to 88 inches by simply pulling out each 18-inch leaf. The table is engineered to allow the extensions to be stored under the top. The extensions can be easily pulled out on solid oak rails and the main top drops into place. No need to store the extensions in a closet! This table measures 52 inches long (when closed) x 28 inches wide x 30 inches tall but I can customize to fit your home. The client wanted to add some subtle flair to the table, so I created a gentle curve on the aprons, a subtle taper on two sides of the legs; and the legs are canted outward at a slight angle. I used a combination of boiled linseed oil and beeswax to bring out the natural coloring and character of the beautiful cherry wood. I can also make the table in walnut, maple or virtually any other species you'd like. I will deliver for free in the NY tri-state area. I can also ship with white glove service -- rates will vary depending on your location and size of your table.

    Kerry made the most beautiful table for us. He paid close attention to what we needed--a relatively small dining room table for our apartment that would open up to be large when we had the kids and grandkids over. I thought that would be a drop-leaf table, but he came up with a beautiful design that was more clever. He made a gorgeous cherry table that has hidden leaves under each end. When you lift up the top and pull those identical pieces out, they slide into place perfectly and the top drops down this the middle, making an 88-inch table. He was professional, the price was fair, he is clearly an artist and expert, and he chose a great shipper.

    Kerry was a dream to work with. We had a house fire and lost everything. We had a particular dinning room table that we looked for two months to replace and could not find. Then I found CustomMade and Kerry.
    Kerry listened to our description and knew exactly what we had. We wanted to tweek the design a little and he was more than up to the task, even offering other suggestions that made our great table even better.
    Kerry returned every text, email, and call on a timely manner and provided pictures along the way. When he got to the finishing stage, he sent us four small pieces of discarded wood that had variations of the finish we wanted. This one part of the experience makes for a finished product that you cannot be unhappy with.

    I would highly recommend working with Kerry. We love the final product and found the process of working with him, easy, straight forward, helpful, and without any problems. The table is gorgeous and he also made a projector box for us and installed it. We are very happy with what Kerry made for us and the experience of working with him.
