Chestnut: One Tough Nut!

Will’s Folding Table

A client right here in South Carolina contacted me, through CustomMade, for a folding top table.  To be perfectly honest I didn’t fully understand what a folding top table was….I kept thinking ‘drop-leaf’….but Will finally showed me the way and off we go. The design of the table was easy as we’d found an online picture of the table he wanted. The choice of wood species was a bit more difficult but we settled on re-claimed Chestnut for lots of reasons (eco-friendly, color and grain patterns, and the charm of all those worm holes).

And a bench to match.

The unusual specification was that Will wanted the table to be 36″ (counter height) tall and, of course, the bench had to compatible with that height. Different.

I was definitely pleased with the outcome and I think Will was too. It was a fun project but definitely had some significant challenges. Check out the photos….
