We just love a satisfied client…

Stacy McGrady, creator of Porch Lemons & Pearls, featured us on her Blog, after purchasing a gorgeous Trestle Table for her family! Check it out here, as she does a much better job of writing than me 🙂

 

Made in the Carolinas

We were approached by Richard Green, from Time Warner Cable News, who produces a show called “Made in the Carolinas”. He was very professional and actually made everyone comfortable, while producing an informative video on Carolina Farm Table. Thanks Richard for your interest and dedication to showing what is made in the Carolinas!

THE table for white, open spaces…

THE table for white, open spaces…

This beautiful modern piece is stunning in an all white room and looks great with a variety of grey room accents! This is what’s “in” right now and we are loving it and hope it never goes out of style. The raw, bleached look is a great addition to any mountain or beach bungalow, as well as high end estate or industrial loft space. Timeless and effortless chic, if that could be said of a table😉 We built this particular table based on a clients desire for reclaimed weathered pine, and an unfinished look. This trestle table is 8’x46″, and extends to 11’x46″ via two 18″ extensions. Something tells me this is the first of many to come!

Call us today if you are interested in this style of unique trestle table. (828)773-0769

Unusually Wide Boards

Unusually Wide Boards

On average, our tables have 8″-9″ wide boards, but every once in a while we get some really wide unique planks that we are able to incorporate into our work. Sliding dovetails ensure that this type of table top stays flat for many years. This is a 7’x40″ table with three 14″ wide boards, crafted from solid pine, with a black crackle base and 4 1/4″ turned style legs. The top has been completely hand planed. Enjoy!

If you are interested in a wide plank style top, give us a call today! (828) 773-0769

Cooperative Artists

Cooperative Artists

We have been looking for a collaboration between ourselves and a local artist to create some one of a kind tables with metal bases. When our good friend Daniel Cater, of Cater Pottery, started branching out into another medium, steel sculptures, we  jumped at the opportunity to create a hand crafted table top for one of his steel bases. This is what our collaboration turned out to be. We think these bases are quite similar to our standard tapered leg farm tables and would even make great dining tables or bench bases! We would love to create more of these, so give us a call today for a completely custom, one of a kind steel based farm table. (828) 773-0769

Alleghany Internship…

Alleghany Internship…

When asked by Alleghany High School if we wanted to mentor a local student, we were a little hesitant because we didn’t know if we would find just the right fit. There are lots of things to consider when taking on a student internship, such as safety, common sense and maturity level. We were pleased when Jacob Roten walked through our shop doors. Chris, one of our lead guys, has taken him under his wing. And Jacob has proved himself as being eager to learn, an active helper and mature. I know he will graduate with bright opportunities in front of him. Enjoy a few shots taken at the shop…

Coastal Cottage Charm

Coastal Cottage Charm

This sweet little table is beachy enough to fit in at the Hamptons, NY or Hampstead, NC. In this case, this 3’x5′ dark brown Cherry farm table went to Hampstead, on the North Carolina coast. It has 3 1/2″ turned legs, and the base is finished in bright white. A cute little bench and a few of our classic windsor chairs complete the beach cottage look with this farm table.

Huntboard inspiration

Huntboard inspiration

Arts and crafts artist Garrett Hack designed this piece and we were commissioned to reproduce it. We felt good about this because he sells his plans through Fine Woodworking Magazine. A client specifically wanted this look for his hunt board and this is what we came up with. Crafted from cherry mostly, this piece has tiger maple door panels and walnut accents throughout. The delicate tapered legs and curved apron really make this piece a piece of Fine Woodworking.

Give us a call if you have a special piece in mind. (828) 773-0769

Reclaimed Oak

Reclaimed Oak

Our reclaimed wood farm tables have become increasingly popular, and we are thrilled! We created this 8′ x 42″  reclaimed table from solid barn oak. A client in Missouri wanted a one of a kind dining table, complete with matching bench. We made her this gorgeous table with 3 1/2″ tapered legs, complete with pegged accents. We finished it with an Early American stain and it is completely hand planed. We love this finish on the old barn wood, as it brings out a rich tone that accents the woods natural beauty. Just in time for fall too! 😉 Enjoy!

Industrial Steel Base

We have been working hard creating a unique, one of a kind, industrial table with these amazing factory pieces of cast iron… This is what we came up with. John found these two salvaged steel pieces up in New England and knew they would make for a really cool unique base. Our thought is they probably came from a factory. Devin decided to use some reclaimed wormy chestnut to complete the industrial look. It is 1 1/2″ thick, hand planed and has bread board ends. Before this table was even built, a local visitor was in the shop and just had to have it! It is 90″ x38″. We always are thinking up one of a kind pieces with found materials, and especially steel bases. We keep some in stock and also have a supply of reproductions.

Feel free to give Devin a call if you would love a piece to be created just for you! (828) 773-0769
