Extending handmade table with a choice of leg options. This table has 50cm extensions which simply slide in at the end(s). You can buy one or two extensions. They are long enough to allow for a place setting without a table leg intruding. Our standard table top is approx. 32-35mm thick or you can choose a thicker top (approx. 50mm) up to a total length of 230cm. For sizes longer than this we use locally sourced Scots Pine for the top and extensions which are 40mm thick. The sizes shown on the site are our standard builds but we can make a table any length up to 300cm (200cm table plus two extensions), so if you want a custom size for example, just email or call us on 01750 725870 and we can process your order that way.
Our tables are built in our workshop in Selkirk by passionate and experienced makers. We only build a few tables each week and spend many hours on each one ensuring real attention to detail and the finest quality. The bases are hand painted in several coats of Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell to give a smooth period colour finish that is easily cleaned and hardwearing. View the colour & finish options before ordering.
Our tables have lots of character that comes from aged wood including minor dents, scratches, natural blemishes, knots and splits. They are smooth to the touch and are ready for every day use with a light Natural, mid Contemporary or darker Rustic wax or polyx-oil finish for durability.
Grooves – All of our table tops are machined for thickness, then jointed and glued using biscuits. To give our tops the ‘plank’ style we bevel the top edges of the boards so the edge of each board is visible. Some of our customers want this and some don’t so you now have the option when ordering your table to choose to have a ‘plank’ style top or a seamless top. It makes no difference to the price.
Dining Set with Bench(es) – if you would like a bench (or 2!) to go with your extending table please email or call us for a price as you will save money over buying the items separately. The standard bench will be 35cm shorter than the length of the table (unless you specify otherwise) so it will slide underneath between the table legs.
Width Upgrade – Tables come in 4 board widths as standard (approx 82cm – 84cm) and are 77cm in height. Get in touch if you would like a narrower or wider table (in increments of approx 20cm – 21cm) or look for the ‘Upgrades’ item in the shop and add the Extending Table option to your order. View the colour & wax finish options before ordering.
Drawer Upgrade – We can fit a drawer to the end of your table or both ends. We can also add a drawer to the side of your table. Drawers can be added to your order by choosing the relevant option in the ‘Upgrades’ product in our shop or at the basket step.
