Handmade Custom Dining Room Tables for Thanksgiving

The holidays seem to be a time when people start to spruce up their home to prepare for parties, house guests, and the Thanksgiving feast. We get a lot of orders this time of year for handmade custom dining room tables from people who want something bigger or something that means a little bit more than what they might purchase from Pottery Barn or the like—not to mention local, made right here in Asheville. We’ve put together some of our favorite dining room tables (and custom bar) we’ve designed to show you the possibilities. The only real limit is your imagination, and that’s where ours takes over.

We’d love to sit down with you to discuss your lifestyle, your family, and come up with designs for a custom dining room table just in time for Thanksgiving.

This view is of a desk, not a table, but the concept can be applied to anything. It shows the detail of a steampunk-style quarter-sawn red oak desktop in which the customer wanted gears and mechanical motifs integrated seamlessly into the wood. 

The underside of a table, while not very useful for holding up a turkey and pumpkin pie, is interesting to look at for us furniture makers, if only to see how strong it is. This picture shows the underside of a table we made for an interior designer and its connection points.

This is actually a complete dining table. It is a piece of spalted maple that the client then covered with glass to complete the look.
