  • Sculpted trestle coffee table

    This is our most recent coffee table about to be picked up by the soon to be owner.

    We designed this off of one of Sam Maloofs small dining tables, basically shrunk everything down after deciding what size top I wanted.

    I've now made this table out of cherry and walnut both look great, we're very lucky to have such beautiful woods here domestically.

    I have a blog that describes the build and assembly of each side section. Building a wooden trestle

    Dimensions are 49''long x 30''wide x 17'' tall

    All joints are reinforced with 2'' long dowels, the leg sections are built with a tung that slides into a groove in a center post, which the center trestle connects with.

    This one was made with cubbyholes, we could add drawers or not have either, but the cubbys are a nice space to put remotes, magazines etc....

    We build all of our furniture by hand one at a time in our 2 man shop, located just west of Toronto, Canada. To view more detailed pictures or to view other work, please visit our Custom wooden rocking chair site.

    Thanks for having a look

      Very nice. It definitely looks like a Maloof. Do you use his finish too?

      If you don't think your work is good enough, maybe you need a Magic Square.

        With almost every project we mix a 3 part with equal parts of BLO , Tung Oil and Poly ( semi-gloss )

        We did 3 coats of this letting it soak for 20 minutes and then rub everything off.

        For the top we applied 6 coats of wipe on poly over the oil finish for extra protection, especially because the customer mentioned marking school work on it.

            Very nice piece of furniture!
            I was in Washington at the Mall about a week ago and took these pictures of a Maloof chair on permenant display in one of the National Museum buildings. Very unique design.
