The Plane Edge was contacted by the customer who kept the family antique dining table throughout the years, but sadly the five (5) table extension leaves had been lost. It was imperative to the customer to have the new table leaves match the existing design and stain/finish of the original antique dining table as much as possible.
The table leaves were constructed of white oak while positioning holes and dowels were marked and drilled on the edges of each leaf. The Plane Edge made several trips to the customer's location to ensure that the table leaves would fit into place regardless of which table leaf was put into place. Even the molded edges of the table leaves were matched as closely as possible, requiring extensive hand work to complete.
At the suggestion of The Plane Edge, a storage case made from white oak was constructed and included in the project at no additional cost to the customer.
Finally, several test pieces of white oak that had been stained and a finish applied were presented to the customer for selection. The five (5) table leaves were then stained, followed by an application two (2) coats of a satin polyurethane, and the finish completed by hand buffing with liquid wax.
Dimensions: Each table leaf approximately 7/8" thick x 13" wide x 42" long.
