Woodwork and Home Designs

We make wood and metal bases. The slab is sized and finished first. We then make a base that matches the size and shape of the slab. Special orders with special sizes can be made to fit the slab. All of our stock furniture is made to standard sizes. We offer several finishes from natural metal to color paints.

We use Rust-Oleum on all the metal. To protect the floor we put metal pads, felt pads, or Plastic caps on the feet. No raw metal is ever in contact with the floor.

Special bases with wood, casters and other options can be ordered. KD bases are available. We can do bases only for your project. 

Once the finish sanding is done, we are ready to put our top coat on.

We use a hard water resistant clear finish and the number of coats depends on the table.

The table is then re-sanded for the second coat which most tables typically get 3 to 6 coats of finish. This gives the table years of use with a very rugged durability.

We normally use "Flat" but "Semi-Gloss" and "Gloss" are available.  

If the table is marked with a ___ we have it in stock. If a table has a marking of ___ then it has been sold, but we can make one similar. If we are making a new table then you can request a custom size. If it is a table that will require a lot of change, we will get you to approve the work.

We have a good stock of slabs but we don’t always have all the woods in all sizes, please check with us before you need. 

Most of our logs come from tree services and loggers.

Our logs are sawed 2 1/2" for tables, 1 1/2" for shelves, this may vary depending on the log. We air stack the wood for drying, and then place into a kiln for drying to the appropriate moisture level. After kiln drying the go into stock for production.
