This style of table is typically produced using quarter-sawn veneers, but this client requested an all-solid wood construction and I was only too happy to oblige. It was pleasure to work with the slabs of 2" white oak, gluing up the massive top and leaves, and working out the joinery to accommodate wood movement.
The end leaves are 12" wide and bolt in place on the captured extension rails, which slide out of the tops of the legs and hide in the recessed aprons. Once bolted in they are rock-solid.
The finish is hand-rubbed and consists of Waterlox with a paste-wax top coat.
Dimensions: 46 x 80 Main Top, 46 x 104 Overall, 30" high
