I finished up this extra large (10’ x 4’) custom walnut dining table just in time for the holidays. It’s now happily at home in a newly renovated South End Halifax home.
I designed and built this custom drop leaf table for a Toronto couple that was looking to replace an aging kitchen table in their newly renovated home. They were looking for something clean and modern, as well as hard wearing, with the ability to quickly and easily add or subtract a small amount of the tabletop surface.
The solution: An updated take on the classic drop leaf table, with tough, but aesthetically pleasing materials and easy to operate drop leaf support system. The base is made from hard maple with a tinted lacquer finish, the tabletop is Corian solid surface and the custom leaf support was machined from aluminium and UHMW to form a strong, low profile support system with smooth motion.
