Federal Style Large Cherry Dining Table

This massive solid cherry table was built as the finishing touch for a very high end kitchen/dining space. It was built to match the theme designed by architect Richard Sholl for a house situated on the North Shore of Massachusetts Bay. The finish was exactly matched to high end Wood-Mode cabinets (two different stains and a glaze). The end detail for the top was made to match a granite counter top for the kitchen's island (pictured above). The legs were supplied by Matthew Burak in the Federal style.

This table measures 100" long with two leaves installed. The leaves are easily stored in the table. I had to make a platform hung from the metal table extensions by screw-on spacers. The platform is felt lined.

The table had to be made to a custom width to fit properly in the long narrow kitchen dining area. Memory escapes me at the moment but I believe the table width is 36". The dining area looks out on Massachusetts Bay through a huge bow window designed by the architect.

Dimensions: 100" long with 2 18" wide leaves installed. Each table end is 32" long. The table is standard height (30"). Table width is about 36" but may be a couple inches wider (there were lots of discussions with the architect about what would fit in the space).
