The -A- table
Hey gang, check out some pictures of our latest table on the website. The goal is that this will be a part of a signature line that is intended for everyone, not just the wealthy. At $1750 it is still not inexpensive, but I challenge anyone to find a table that is made in America with a solid 8/4 (which finishes off at 1 3/4 inches thick) cherry top for less money.
This table has a hand rubbed finish, which I truly love. The danish oil and paste wax make for a very nice smooth feel without masking the wood's character. This finish is also less fussy than a urethane or a lacquer because tables get scratched. Especially if you have kids, it is going to happen! Instead of scratching through to the unfinished wood and having peeling issues, all the owner has to do is rub some more wax on it and let the wood be wood, acquiring it's patina of good use.
The design is also very simple so that he wood itself becomes the primary decoration.
