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. We do buy logs to keep a good mixture. Most of our slabs are sawed 2 ½” for tables and 1 ½” for shelves. All wood is in air for several months until they reach a moisture level of 22% to 26% or lower.
We then plan the slabs in a Kiln to finish drying. We dry to a level of 8% to 12% depending on the type of wood. All wood is heated to 145-150 degree F for three days to make sure there is no infection.
The slabs are then placed into stock and readied to make tables. From Log to Finished Slab takes 10 to 11 months.
