This rustic farmhouse table was built to order by a forth generation member of our family. At just 16 (age at time of project) years of age, Bobby possessed the skills needed to built this rustic farmhouse table. He has mastered the art of hand carving turned objects on the lathe. All our turnings are done completely by hand, without any duplicated device on our lathe. The clients who ordered this table, along with a rustic entertainment cabinet, were thrilled to have the young men here build their pieces. Below, enjoy a few images of the table being built.

Bob uses the jointer to cut a taper in one of the cherry table legs. Whatever material you can take off before placing the stock into the lathe surely saves time.

Here, Bob is shaping the portion of leg to be turned round. Notice he leaves the top section of the leg square. This will be where the skirt boards will attach.

After he has carved the design into the leg, there's hours of sanding to remove the tiny chips left by the hand chisels. It generally takes about twice as long to sand a turning than it does to lathe it!

Here, Bob has the base of the custom built table assembled.

He is now securing the base of the table to its top. The top was built out of very lightly figured tiger maple.

We finish sand all our furniture with hand held 4" x 24" belt sanders. It takes hours to sand out any imperfections.

This table's base was to be painted a rustic back, with areas of wear through to the cherry wood. Here Bob sprays a base coat of black paint on the table base in our sprayroom. The table top was to be natural, so Bob has it masked off with tape and newspaper.
