This is a table that I have wanted to build since I saw my grand father’s antique dutch leaf table 10 years ago! What an awesome concept to have a self storing leaf. The leaf system worked out perfectly thanks to Matt’s creative engineering…good job on this one Matt!! The dimensions of this table were 84″ x 36″ with two 15″ leafs.
This table was built for a great client’s home in the hill country outside of Austin. What a perfect fit! We constructed this table out of a superior grade alder to achieve a clean farm table look.
The finish, when completed, was rubbed with steel wool and french polished to give the table a rich glow. The table was completed with a custom stretcher from Bron at Nobel Forge. It was all hand shaped and forged with an amazing textured finish!
