As you’ve probably seen while wandering through our site, we are a small mom and pop shop that works hands-on to create nearly all of the tables, mantels, and countertops that we have this site. We have a few workers, but this is about fine, family craft. We don’t intend nor want to ever be considered “factory made.” We’re always rather amazed that our prices are very comparable to the big home furnishing stores but our quality is many times better and hand-crafted specifically for each customer.
We custom build everything, so you can have you want. You can have a specific table size with whatever little embellishments make it special for you. We can start out with a design we’ve done before or a blank piece of paper. We’ll draw it out on the computer so that we get the proportions and details right. We don’t charge anything for the design process. We provide a firm quote with each design.
Finally, in terms of quality, we predominantly use reclaimed American hardwoods — particularly white oak. With quality wood and craftsmanship, our tables are built to last decades — even centuries. We want to build an heirloom; not a trendy, disposable item.
We price out tables individually and will provide a firm quote for you; however, the following will give you a sense for how we price our tables out. We price it in two parts — the size of the top and the style of the base.
The vast majority of our tables are full-length, reclaimed hardwoods — white oak, red oak, red elm, American elm, and Ash. We use urban logged black walnut from time to time as well. Our speciality is bringing out the best of the surface character of these great old woods. This process is very labor intensive. Most of the pictures on our site are of this nature. These tabletops run $85 per square foot (1.25 to 1.75in thick). For pricing tops from 2in to 2.5in thick, we run $100 per square foot. A few tops, such as those with hand-hewn character, end up close to $125 per square foot. A square foot calculator is available on calculator.net.
On the other hand, we do offer two styles that are a less expensive — mixed length hardwoods as well as full length pine. These run $65/SF (less than 2 inches thick) and $75/SF (for 2 to 2.5in thick). Here are a some pictures of those –
