Custom Wood Table - 7 Things to Know Before

Don’t Design a Custom Wooden Dining Room Table Without Reading This First!

When you buy a wood table from Woodland Creek’s Log Furniture Place, you have the pleasure of knowing that your table is absolutely unique. This is because every table we make is composed of different pieces of wood, so the grain, color, and texture of the piece will be true to your table, and your table alone.

This applies whether you purchase a stock table or order a custom-designed piece. But before you order, there are some things you will need to know if you are planning to have a table custom-made. Here are seven things you will need to know to ensure the table you get is the table you ultimately want and need.

#1: The Size of Your Dining Table

Our tables are custom-made, so we can build them in practically any size you need. Knowing the size before you order is important because you need the table to fit in your dining room, where it needs to accommodate your guests comfortably. Here are some standard sizes and how many people those sizes can comfortably seat:

  • 42×60 – seats 6
  • 42×72 – seats 6-8
  • 42×84 – seats 8
  • 42×96 – seats 8-10
  • 42×108 – seats 10
  • 42×120 – seats 10-12

You can also choose to include a table leaf, which will allow you to expand the length of the table even more, accommodating more guests in the process.

#2: The Dining Room Table Style

Rustic wood tables can be either formal or casual. You should know what style you want for your dining room because style can affect the type of wood or stain that is used to finish it. For instance, darker stains are typically better suited for formal tables, while lighter or more natural stains will tend to give the table a more casual feel. A formal table should also not be as distressed as a casual table.

#3: Pedestal Base or Table Legs?

Traditional wood tables often stand on four legs, but a thicker and more pronounced pedestal base is also an option. The larger your table, the thicker your legs or pedestals will need to be, and you may even need multiple pedestals.

#4: Wood Type

We use a variety of different wood to build each of our custom tables, so you will want to know what type of wood you prefer before you order. You can choose from Aspen, Cedar, Hickory, Black Walnut, Juniper, Pine, reclaimed barnwood, and more. Each has its own individual color, texture, and character.

#5: Shape

What shape do you want your table to be? Common choices include rectangle, oval, round, octagon, and square. Or, you can choose a rustic slab tabletop, which retains the interesting shape of the tree that the wood came from.

#6: Edge

The edge of the table is often overlooked, but it is one of your most important considerations because it can dramatically affect the overall look of the piece. The more common edge styles include round, square, and standard, but you can also choose a live edge, which is what you call it when the table features the natural beauty of the wood as its edge.

#7: Seating

With a new table, it’s highly likely that you will need new seating, as well. So, do you want a traditional set of wood chairs, benches, or a combination of them?
