The Dining Table
Farmhouse tables are popular for rustic dining rooms. The tabletop is made from a simple flat grain construction style. The table leg can be plain, decorative or trestle base. The trestle base style includes the traditional X-shaped picnic table base, with or without the crossbar.
These are hollow beams—usually three-sided—that attach to your ceiling. They’re sometimes used as a decorative element to mimic support beams. They can also hide security and entertainment system wires and cover metal ceiling beams in basements.
Reclaimed wood box beams have a distressed appearance that complements rustic furniture. You can also use them in your kitchen. A wooden beam with cookware and hanging utensils looks very traditional.
Wood Accent Walls
Our woodworkers build wood accent walls from multiple planks, which are usually interlocking. Reclaimed wood walls are especially beautiful because they show so many colors and wood types. Wood accent walls add a striking and unique artistic touch to your rustic dining room.
Live Edge Slabs
A live edge slab exposes the wood’s natural edge, which can include bark remnants. Live edge slabs are best used for floating mantels, small tabletops and small bar tops.
