642 Best farmhouse table ever

Classically-proportioned farmhouse table newly built by us with an authentic rustic finish.  We love the extra wide gently shaped aprons on this one.

This one has pegged joints and a breadboard end -- shown with the finish sample.

As always, finish samples are sent to you for selection in your own home and lighting - finishing is done to match the selection, shown here clamped to the top.

Meant to have a very heavily distressed look.

Close study of real antique finishes reveals that the most soulful finishes are those with plenty of subtle color variation.

There are no shortcuts - this finish is achieved by a very labor-intensive 35 step process.

Another piece of like ilk but slightly different color

A series of pictures follows which shows breadboard construction method in our shop.
