One of a kind oval table built of "wormy" solid willow oak boards harvested in Carrboro, NC from the "first oak tree planted on Oak Street."

Slab top 38" wide at the ends tapering to 35&1/2” wide at the middle by 60" long and 1&1/4" thick. The table is 29&3/4” high. It will seat up to 6 people. The table has adjustable, padded feet that can be extended about 3/8 inch. The legs may be unbolted for ease of transport.

Shipping price shown is for local delivery only! If you live outside my delivery area I will need your location in order to determine a price for packing & shipping by motor freight.

A distinctive feature of this table is the use of boards that were milled to retain the “live edge” or natural contour of the trunk. The top is hand-finished varnish; the skirt & legs hand-finished with tung oil. Prior to finishing, table pieces were treated to kill powder post beetles & the worm holes were filled with epoxy resin.

The wood used has a special history. In July, 2002 one of the trees at my home died and had to be removed. During the removal our neighbors who had lived next door since the early 1950's told me it was "the first oak tree planted on Oak Street." Knowing that I was a woodworker they suggested that I get some boards milled from the trunk.

I had the biggest pieces of the trunk sawed into boards in August of 2002. I stickered & air-dried them in a shed & then made this table in 2009. I have had it inside the house since then and the wood is stable.

I am happy to design & build a table or other furniture to your specifications! I have been working in the Research Triangle area of NC since 1976, designing & making custom furniture and cabinetry as well as doing residential design. I often participated in the Chatham County Open Studio Tour before moving to Carrboro. I work out of a shop at my home.
