Classic Tables

Rectangle. Square. Round. Sometimes the classic shapes work best and fit a space better than using live edge. We love making classically shaped tables and always find a way to add a small detail here or there to make sure your table has that modern designed look.

 

3 Easy Steps To Having Your Own Classic Table

Pick Your Wood

Our most popular species for tables at the moment is Black Walnut. It has a dark rich colour with striking contrasting sap wood and is a timeless addition to any home. That said, we also have many other great choices of wood like Ambrosia Maple, Black Cherry, White Pine, & White Oak. All told we stock over 60 species of lumber suited for a Classic table. Our staff will be happy to go through your options and help guide you through the selection process.

Pick Your Finish

We usually don’t stain or change the colour on tables. Instead we prefer to use a clear finish that highlights the richness of the wood slabs you choose.

Most of our residential use tables are finished with either Rubio Monocoat or Osmo Oils. In our showroom we have a big display unit that clearly shows you the difference between the two, and a few colour/sheen options. If you expect heavy use or would rather have a finish with a higher gloss level we also offer a spray lacquer finish. This option is the same one we use for commercial restaurant applications and will come at a higher price point.

Pick Your Legs

We stock over 10 leg style options in raw steel and in black matte powder coated finish. These options have proven to be classic styles that match well with any live edge table our custom shop can produce.

In cases where you need something a little different, or had a specific design in mind - we can also provide you with custom metal work.


FAQs

How long does it take for you to make my table?

Most of the year our custom shop runs on about a 2-3 week turn around time. Once you finalize all sizes and details we can give you a pretty accurate ETA at that point. This is going to be fun!

What kind of edge detail can you do?

We can do almost everything; bevel, round-over, heavy chamfer, straight, you name it! In our showroom we have a big display unit that shows you 5 different edge details in person to help you make the decision. The most modern choice these days seems to be a small bevel. We can also add a slight curve at tables ends, or on all 4 corners to make it more family friendly. Our staff can guide the pricing options for these additional features.

When do I pay - and how much?

All custom work that goes through our shop requires a 50% deposit up front to get the project scheduled in the queue. Once the table is completed we will contact you to make pickup/delivery arrangements and settle up the outstanding balance.

What about legs?

Of course we sell legs and encourage you to consider them when sorting through your options. We also have a welder who works for us and is usually able to make whatever we ask of him. His name is Rick! Send us some ideas and we will be happy to offer you a pricing option. If you already have table legs we can install them for you for a price. The cost varies depending on how complex they are, and whether or not we need to provide the fasteners. As we finalize the table details we can discuss the options and costs for this added service.

What are my options for a finish? I do/don’t like glossy things.

Most of our residential use tables are finished with either Rubio Monocoat or Osmo Oils. In our showroom we have a big display unit that clearly shows you the difference between the two, and a few colour/sheen options. If you expect heavy use or would rather have a finish with a higher gloss level we also offer a spray lacquer finish. This option is the same one we use for commercial restaurant applications and will come at a higher price point.
