A Bonnin Ashley custom made, dining table with trestle base. This Scandinavian-inspired table can be made in any size up to 11' long. We can also add end leaves. Additionally, we offer a variety of styles for the trestle base that are more linear (see "Noland") or curvilinear (see "Rowena").

Hand painted poplar base with hard maple top, this table can be made to any length, width and height.

The "Thorvald" table shown here measures 80" long x 38" wide.

Table is also being shown fabricated in repurposed pine planks from Holland bleached poplar base and a chalk/lye finished top

What is special about our repurposed pine?
The tops are made of 80-year-old repurposed boards that come from the Dutch city made famous for its Gouda cheese. The wood was originally used to provide a surface for the cheese wheels after they were waxed. We brought them to the US in the late 1990's and repurposed them as tongue-and-groove pine flooring using a traditional Danish chalk-lye finish. We are resurrecting them to make table tops, working with the lye finish and then sealing them with a water-based polyurethane that does not affect the color or sheen but makes the tops user-friendly allowing for soap and water clean-up without disturbing the under finish. The tops are reinforced with a poplar, sliding dovetail flange that is inserted on the underside of the table and allows the boards to expand and contract independently of the base so that they will not crack or cup with fluctuations in temperature and humidity. The poplar trestle bases, stretcher, pegs and wedges can be finished in a variety of finishes including a limed finish to match the top or any number of painted finishes. All of our finishes are very complimentary to the repurposed tops and in keeping with the painted finishes of the Swedish Gustavian period.
