Pictured are some of the pieces that I have created over the last 25 years. All the tables you see are custom made with no screws or nails. Tops are spline jointed, legs are mortised and pegged (see options). Tops, legs and aprons are all hand planed and spoke shaved. I carry a wide variety of wood species both old and new. I can create a table that looks very old or a museum quality heirloom. You are the boss. Tables are available with thick or thin tops, extra width or more narrow. Tables are also available in round. Extensions can be added to rectangular tables adding 1.5' to each end. I have built many tables for NBA Basketball players who needed extra height. Please do not feel limited to what you see on my website. More than half of what I build is custom made. Please feel free to give me a call and we can discuss your next heirloom.
If one were to find the center of a family's life, the humble kitchen table would certainly emerge as the focal point. While other areas of the house and other pieces of furniture hold more honor, the farm tables witness the gamut of family life and links the individual members of the family. It's the place where a family unites at breakfast to begin the day's activities, comes together briefly at noon, and reunites at supper to share the day's adventures. Dinning-room tables are more formal and distinguished, but the kitchen table is simple and relaxed, welcoming good home cooked meals that come it's way. It is the perfect place for a prime-rib roast with all the trimmings, a TV dinner or a pepperoni pizza. The kitchen table is not a snob.
However, the kitchen table is more than a congenial filling station. It is also the place where babies are dressed and changed, socks are sorted, clothes are mended and gossip is swapped. It's the round of discussion or a quite place for secrets. It's the perfect place to talk about the weather, the latest stock prices or what happened at school today. A steaming cup of coffee or an amiable game of cards with friends can truly be savored only at the kitchen table. Here, family arguments are won and lost, advice is sought and council given and tears are wiped away from children's eyes following physical and emotional cuts and bruises. Pictures are painted, bread is kneaded, and cakes are mixed. The kitchen table is a quite haven in the morning before everyone is up and its the perfect place to read the bible, a new recipe, or the instructions and guarantee for the lawn mower. You can welcome the sunrise here or burn the midnight oil. It is the place to face reality and pay the bills as well as a place to dream and build elaborate castles in the air. We are proud to share in a part of this continuing tradition and we hope that our tables bring you many happy memories for generations to come.

All of my tables are one of a kind so it is very hard to show examples of tables. Pictured are some in each wood specie that will give you an ideal of what the tables would look like. Pricing online is again very hard to do because of the many things that can be done to customize your table.
