LIKE ALL THE FURNITURE WE MAKE, OUR WILNO TABLE IS MADE USING ONLY SOLID WOOD – IN THIS CASE, SELECT, KNOT-FREE PINE. THE DESIGN IS CAREFULLY CONSIDERED, EVERY ELEMENT INTENTIONAL. IT IS LIGHT IN APPEARANCE, ROBUSTLY MADE, AND FUNCTIONALLY PRACTICAL.
We've offered our Wilno Table unchanged for 40 years. The top is a full 7/8" thick, quite slim and elegant. Anything thinner looks skimpy. Thicker can be quite lovely, but that's not the look here. The apron is bead trimmed. Beading is made from wood 1/8" thick by 1" wide and as long as the apron. A 1/8" radius is milled along one edge of this strip. When applied to the underside of the apron, the bead creates a shadow line while also providing the apron with a smooth underside. It's a subtle embellishment. The legs are slightly tapered from just below the apron.
The four aprons are milled with tenons that fit into mortises cut into the top of the legs. When assembled the joints are tight. The face of the apron is set back from the face of the leg. This set back provides a reveal and a shadow line where the apron and the legs intersect. The tabletop overhangs the apron by a considerable margin. We think it looks good, and setting the apron back provides space to make it taller, and therefore stronger. When the apron skirts too close to edge of the tabletop, it must be made short so it doesn't get in the way of folks' thighs when getting up from and sitting down at the table.
The Highland Chair has a generous size seat and with ample wiggle room. The back post are also integral to the leg assembly transferring the weight directly to the floor. Having the three maple panel across your back gives a comfortable, long lasting seat with support. The two tones between the frame and the pine dish make for a nice contrast and variety for any table choice.

Installing the leaves is a one person job. There are two small notches in the apron, where the rails of the leaves slide securely into the table, the only clue that the table extends. Without the leaves the tabletop is a solid, uninterrupted surface, with no split in the middle. There are no telescoping brackets or gear systems, nothing to break.
Emporium Bundles offer exceptional value. We select pieces that work well together, and offer them in a package at a really great price.
