Project Information

Just the right size for an intimate breakfast or a few pints watching the game. Our custom made Café Table will fit beautifully into any basement bar or small kitchen. Pictured here in Canadian Black Walnut the top is 1.5'' thick with a smooth edge with nothing to hide. We finish our tables just like our signature custom wooden rocking chairs leaving every surface with a silky smooth finish. The single pedestal base is built using tung and groove joinery and reinforced miters.

37'' Tall x 34'' Diameter

I have a few pretty detailed blog entrys regarding the build process of this table, check them out on my custom wooded rocking chair design and build blog.

I'll do a blog post on how I attach 3 piece sections. When we use 8/4 lumber as with this table we of course glue the joint, always priming the joints. Which means I apply glue the the end grain leave it for about 5 minutes, then scrape away what remains, most of it gets sucked into the end grain! We then line up the joint on out assembly table use a clamp to clamp it to the table to hole everything where it should be.

We then use 4 4'' screws from the inside of the side section to attach each leg, so there is 4 4'' screws at each miter location. The is 32 4'' screws!

With the top off, I can lift myself up and hang from the table supports or legs, i'm 180lbs, I can actually do dips in between the supports.

Fabulous looking piece of Canadian art. This is a keeper in my favourites. Will look at your blog soon. Nice choice of wood and love the thick top. Thanks for sharing.

Oh ya that's right I forgot to mention, I kinda lucked out on how the wood contrast worked. This was a " prototype " so I actually used cut offs and scraps from other projects.
All the lumber is 8/4'' Walnut, but the bottom 4 legs sections are 95% sap wood. We don't cut around or throw out the sap wood, we choose to use it in beautiful ways and I think this table shows one unique way of using it.

Thanks again everyone for having a look, always a pleasure to share or ideas.
