Cameron Extension Table in Rustic Cherry
Nothing is more elemental in the home than a table to gather around. Made of pine salvaged from an old Ottawa Valley barn, this is a classic turned leg harvest table. Extra wide, century-old planks provide a storied richness. Notice the shape of the elegant hand turned leg - reproduced from an antique, and distinguishing it from manufactured "me too" imitations. Includes two end leaf extensions, each providing two additional place settings.
New Mexico is a spectacular landscape. Before statehood, Anglo settlers arriving from the northeast found, in the old Spanish capital at Santa Fe, an aesthetic profoundly different from the one they had left behind.
The Spanish had been living among the Hopi for 350 years. The adobe houses that the Spanish had adapted from Hopi tribes were perfectly suited to the high desert.
These houses and their furnishings were unfamiliar, especially in the context of the Classical Greek tradition from back east.
Many settlers applied Spanish and Native design practices. And gradually, a locally sensitive yet Classically informed aesthetic emerged.
This period and its artifacts are known as Territorial.

For rich character and depth of interest, reclaimed wood is an ideal choice. No two pieces are alike. A mottled appearance and variation of colour are to be expected and appreciated.
This furniture is constructed using aged and weathered materials. Please expect variation of colour and wood condition on made to order purchases.
For less varied colour production and a more uniform effect, please consider furniture made from new materials.
As with all wood products, the environment in which this item is placed will interact with the wood and in some cases slight movement or settling can occur. Long periods of exposure to direct sunlight will likely cause fading.
The apron is mortised into the top of the leg. There's a tongue on the apron and a groove in the leg - referred to as a mortise and a tenon. They're fit together, glued and pegged into place. These solid joints aren't going anywhere. Alternatively, if you'd like us to ship you your table, we'll use a corner bracket. That way the legs are removable and shipping is less expensive.
No Moving Parts
Notice the slots in the apron - where the rails of the end leaves slide in, and the only clue that this is an extension table. Enjoy a simple solid top table as your standard set up. No cutting the table top in half. No telescoping brackets or gear systems. Nothing to break. Nothing to repair. To add four place settings, insert the leaves at the drop of a hat.
Made To Measure
This table is available custom sized. There's an opportunity to choose the best size for your room and lifestyle. As a rule of thumb, try to leave 24" minimum around each side of the table. And for every 24" in length, there's room for one person on each side of the table. So a six foot table can seat eight people - three on each side and one on each end. The width of the chairs is a crucial measurement. To avoid that awkward seat in front of the leg, be sure to consider how many chairs will fit between the legs of the table.
