Recently Steve was asked to make a dining table that took its inspiration from a butcher’s block that he had previously made in green, unseasoned oak. A butcher’s block and a dining table have two rather different functions. However Steve was able to call upon his many years of experience to ensure that he met and exceeded the client’s brief. The end result makes a huge statement. The design references the rustic nature of the green oak used for the original butcher’s block. While including the necessary practicalities of a dining room table. The table is a manageable size to be enjoyed on a daily basis with immediate family. Or you can add tables leaves to either end and extend it to accommodate a banquet for family and friends!
The timber used in the making of this table is a combination of kiln dried and air dried English oak. The overall design reflects the simplicity of a butcher’s block. Air dried English oak was used for the naturally dried look which gives the surface cracking in the legs. While the more stable character kiln dried oak was used for the table top.
