tea for two and a table for six

Our dining table was also a labor of love from my parents, Jim and Debbie Joiner.

Inspired by the beautiful wood slab tables of  the Jeffrey Greene design studio, I had the idea for this raw wood table. The rough aesthetic makes a bold statement as it stands in contrast to the rest of our modern furnishings.

This great piece of furniture started out as a big hunk of curly maple my parents has planed. Thus began the tedious process of sanding, matching, gluing, bolting, staining, and polyurethaning.

The construction of the table is celebrated by the exposed bolts in the table top.

The top edge expresses the raw bark original to the tree exterior.

Zach and I love to eat and work at this table. It’s completely perfect for us. We also hope to entertain many friends and family around this beautiful table for years to come!
