HANDMADE “SAWHORSE” TABLE DESK

It had been at least three years since we built our last “Sawhorse Table Desk” and when we found some sawhorse patterns, we thought it was about time to build one.  Having looked at sawhorse desks online and having seen some with shelves, we made ours combining our old style with shelves.  Here is what we built.

HANDMADE SAWHORSE TABLE DESK:

ALL WOOD "SAWHORSE TABLE DESK" (28" x 66" x 30")

SOLID WOOD “SAWHORSE TABLE DESK” (28″ x 66″ x 30″)

The Sawhorse Table Desk shown above was displayed in our booth at ENCORE RESALES, Pelham, AL.  We had expected it to show for a couple of weeks there with the expectation that it would sell before the end of July.  Well, we were off a little on the timing.  It showed at Encore for about a week and someone decided it should be relocated to their home (yes, it sold).    [ Now, Just Fine Tables is jumping through hoops to build something to fill the void that is in our booth.  So… we are going to build a simple Rustic Farm Table as a replacement.  NOTE: Just Fine Tables expects to have the new table to Encore Resales sometime the week of July 25. ]

Just as we had sold our Sawhorse Table Desk quickly, a similar thing  happened for my life’s partner, J’s-AVE, at our other consignment store, UPSCALE RESALE, Covington, TN.  In J’s case, she had diligently been working on a Kidney Shaped Desk that we found about two months before… (yes, sometimes it takes a while to complete projects to our liking).   [A little history:  J’s-Ave had previously had a six-drawer vanity desk at Upscale that she thought would sell semi-quickly.  Well, it took over two months before it found a new home.]
You guessed it… the new KIDNEY SHAPED DESK sold in less than one week at Upscale Resale in our booth there.

UP-STYLED KIDNEY SHAPED DESK:

As mentioned, it took about two months before the desk was ready for display for sales.  So… what did the desk look like two months before?  Here is a picture of it beforehand.

Before Up-Styling Kidney Shaped Desk-

KIDNEY DESK BEFOREHAND

KIDNEY SHAPED DESK BEFOREHAND

As you can see, there is a lot of difference in these pictures.  The Beforehand Picture shows the desk with two empty drawer slots (OK, one shows the bottom of one box that Just Fine Tables built to fill the gaping holes.) and the old look.   We also had to improve the existing drawers to fit correctly as part of the upgrade.  Hope you like the changes we made in the desk.

Since the Kidney Shaped Desk sold so quickly, J’s-AVE and Just Fine Tables joined forces together to fill the void in our booth at Upscale Resale.  Our combined efforts led to the building of a small indoor / outdoor bench from a twin sized Jenny Lind headboard and building a bench seat.  Here is the bench that we replaced the Kidney Shaped Desk with in our Upscale Resale booth.

STYLISH HANDMADE FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE

CUSTOM FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE (42" X 90")

CUSTOM FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE (42″ X 90″)

And now, … for the rest of the story.

Since relocating from Alabama to our Tennessee Farm Home, Just Fine Tables has had the opportunity to be contacted by local Tennessee folks to learn if we could possibly build them a specialty farm table for their homes.  The first was last November when a lady found us on our website and saw a square farmhouse farm  table with two benches we had made for a family who lives a few miles north of Montgomery, AL (i.e. CUSTOM SQUARE FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE W/ MATCHING BENCHES).

However, this new Tennessee prospective customer wanted a larger square table for their new home and is shown here (December 2015).  Later, the new customer asked to have a single matching bench built to go with the farm table and its new surrounding chairs.  This was March of this year when we completed the bench.  ( Note:  Just Fine Tables now has a request to build the family a matching wine bar buffet table.  Love those repeat customers!)

And now … info regarding the opening picture … Just Fine Tables has had the opportunity to build a truly specialized farmhouse farm table for a family in Dyersburg, TN.  The lady of the house found our website by surfing the web and saw some of the tables shown in the links above.  She sent me an email and asked if I could build her a large farm table to be 42″ wide and 90″ long and to use classic big 5″ farm table legs.  Realizing that this lady wanted something very special, I replied to her email and asked that she call to discuss.  She did and followed our discussion with an email including some pictures and links of what she wanted to match, or that she thought would blend well with her other furniture and new dining area.   … Just Fine Tables took her request and after a couple of days was able to give her a price for her new table should she desire that we build it for her.  Well…  obviously, we did.

Since the customer of this latest Farmhouse Farm Table had a number of requests, I thought it might be beneficial for you to have a feel for what is involved with custom built tables should you or someone you know want a custom built handmade table.

The list of wants for the above specialty farmhouse farm table were:  1.  As mentioned, the size needed to be 42″ x 90″ and that the legs needed to be classic 5″ turned farm table legs.  2.  That the table needed to be a hardwood and the finish so that the children of the house could not destroy the table immediately (we build them so that in the worse case, they can be stripped and redone to last a lifetime + ).   3.  Her husband wanted the table to have thick top to be both strong and look appropriate for their large house.  4.  She wanted the top to look similar in appearance to the top of this coffee table-

Farm Table Top To Look Similar to this Coffee Table Top

Farm Table Top To Look Similar to this Coffee Table Top

and 5.  She wanted the table legs to be distressed to semi-match some expensive Hooker chairs she wanted to use.

Hooker Furniture Arm Chair

In order to accomplish the customer’s desires…. we did the following:

  1. Bought 1.5″ thick rough cut maple lumber and after cutting to near lengths (always a little longer), spent a day planing the lumber down for a smooth top.
  2. Bought 5″ husky farm table legs in maple from Osborne Wood Products Co.
  3. Did a lot of color match tests..Color Matching

4. After staining and painting the table legs .. hangar bolts had to be installed (this is tough to get right) so the legs fit well with the leg attachment braces inside the table.

And then …after a lot of sanding, staining, final finishing a couple or three times and delivery of the table to the customer… you have a happy customer.

p.s.  Yes, this is a very heavy table.  Luckily, we have some strong young men in the neighborhood who likes to make a little extra spending money.

HANDMADE RUSTIC WINE BAR BUFFET TABLES

In addition to building Fine Handmade Farm / Farmhouse Tables, Just Fine Tables also builds Handmade Rustic and/or Custom Wine Bar Buffet Tables.  These Wine Bar Buffet Tables have always been a hit with our customers.  And recently, but not currently, if you Googled “Wine Bar Buffet Table” and went down and clicked on the link of pictures of these, you would have found that the lion’s share of these were built by Just Fine Tables (i.e. 26 of the pictures in the 1st 6 rows of pictures). [Sorry, the link has been taken down and a ‘sales’ list of paying customer picture offerings are shown.  “Money talks while Beauty and Functionality walks is apparent these days.”]

To ensure that our friends and customers know that Just Fine Tables continues to build these Wine Bar Buffet Tables “To Love and Last”, … here are a couple of our recent builds.

SQUARE FARMHOUSE TABLE & MATCHING BENCH

Just Fine Tables has succeeded in hand building a matching bench to go with the large square farmhouse table that we built back in December for a couple moving into their new home.  The lady of the house found Just Fine Tables while searching the internet for farm / farmhouse tables.  She found our website and was in awe as she realized that we were located within 15-20 miles of their new home and that we built the kind of dining tables she wanted.
At first, the couple only wanted a husky table as they were in the process of decorating their new home.  And, at that time they weren’t interested in a bench as they had decided on the chairs for the table (i.e. light blue fabric covered chairs).  However, when we delivered the table they had reconsidered on having a handmade matching bench for one side of the table. (re: Family kids dining and potential spills, etc.).  The couple ordered the matching bench, and luckily, we had just enough ash lumber to build the bench.

LARGE SQUARE FARMHOUSE TABLE And MATCHING BENCH:

60" SQUARE FARMHOUSE TABLE AND BENCH

60″ SQUARE FARMHOUSE TABLE AND MATCHING BENCH

When we were in initial discussions about building the table, we had on hand most of the ash lumber needed, but did not have any large table legs.  We told the customer that we would have to order legs from our supplier as we did not have any 5″ husky farm table legs.  Just as we were setting up to order the table legs, we found four(4) unfinished table legs at our local Consignment Store (UPSCALE RESALE, Covington, TN).  We noted that the price of the unfinished legs were essentially the same as those we would have gotten at our normal supplier and that they were of acceptable quality.  So… we bought the legs, did our thing in building the table and the table became history.

For the matching bench, we had to purchase legs and did so from our regular supplier, OSBORNE WOOD PRODUCTS, INC., Toccoa, GA which was great as their service and quality are first rate.  The legs we found on their site that most closely matched the table legs were their ‘3″ Country Bench Legs’ (see above).  We did our normal staining, painting, distressing, and final finishing of the bench legs the same as we had previously done with the table legs for the matching look.  As you can see, the bench top is a match also.

Please know that this farm farmhouse table and matching bench is the first of Just Fine Tables’ custom tables built in our new location in Covington, TN.   As you might guess, Just Fine Tables would like to build additional customer requested tables.  Should you have an interest, please feel comfortable in contacting us.  Phone or Email works fine.

COUNTRY FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE & CHAIRS

Just Fine Tables recently Refinished and Up-styled a All-Wood Round Pedestal Table to become a true Country Farmhouse Round Farm Table.   Additionally, we did the same with four solid wood chairs to match and add to the Farmhouse Round Table for a complete Country Kitchen Ensemble.

COUNTRY FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE And CHAIRS:

COUNTRY FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE & CHAIRS (42" Round)

COUNTRY FARMHOUSE FARM TABLE & CHAIRS (42″ Round)

As noted in the caption, the Farm Table is 42″ in diameter making it ideal for most country kitchens.  Also, based upon the picture, we took and highlighted the top with a darker stain and then applied a pleasant satin polyurethane finish.
For the chairs, after ensuring they were structurally stable, we lightly sanded and painted all the chairs a cottage white as we had done with the base and apron of the table.  For the final finishing of the chairs, we re-sanded with fine grit sandpaper for a smooth feel while lightly distressing to show typical chair wear and then applied a satin polyurethane final finish for long life.

If you would like to see this Refinished and Up-styled Farmhouse Farm Table & Chair Ensemble, you can do so currently at ENCORE RESALES, Pelham, AL.  This is how the table and chair ensemble appears as setup in Booth 47 / 469 at ENCORE

(Please note that the Lazy Susan on the table may have found a new home a few days ago.)

Got to go for today now.  Just Fine Tables is nearing the completion of a matching bench to go with this square farm table we custom built and delivered back before Christmas.

60" SQUARE FARM TABLE

60″ SQUARE FARM TABLE

The customer wanted a single bench for one side of the table when family children might be visiting (i.e. minimize any spillage concerns).   Our understanding is that the other three sides of the table will have pairs of light colored fabric covered dining chairs.

WINE BAR BUFFET TABLE in RUSTIC BARN WOOD

Just Fine Tables built a Rustic Wine Bar Buffet Table from some Real Old Barn Wood filled with bug and nail holes and lots of natural weathered aging.  Since this barn wood had already served its original purpose for over 60 years, Just Fine Tables decided the wood would work well for a few more decades as a rustic wine bar buffet table / console table similar to others we have built.

RUSTIC WINE BAR BARN WOOD BUFFET TABLE:

RUSTIC BARN WOOD WINE BAR BUFFET CONSOLE TABLE

RUSTIC BARN WOOD WINE BAR BUFFET CONSOLE TABLE

The Wine Bar Buffet Console Table in Rustic Barn Wood is conveniently sized with dimensions of 47.5″ wide x 18.75″ deep x 36″ counter height.  The top is composed of three planks that have been sanded nearly smooth, stained, and finished with high grade polyurethane for long life…even for outdoor use on say, a porch.

Additionally, you can see the wine bar is completed with two (2) shelves.  One shelf is built as a full plank for general storage and the lower shelf is built with six (6) wine bottle storage slots and a shorter general storage shelf.  All surfaces were sanded, stained, and finished as above.

This hand built rustic wine bar buffet table above is the first for 2016, but will certainly not be the last.  Legs have already been cut for two more.  The top of one has already been selected to be built from aged ash lumber remnants remaining after the building of this large square farm table and the soon to be built matching bench.

CUSTOMER SPECIFIED SQUARE FARM TABLE WITH ASH TOP:

60" SQUARE FARM TABLE

60″ SQUARE FARM TABLE

Other recent projects have included the refinishing and up-styling of a round oak pedestal table, five all wood chairs, and a mirror or two for our partner, J’s-AVE.  Don’t fret… you should see some of these in our next blog post in a few days.

Got to go.  Legs for the matching bench to go with the table above are due for delivery here this afternoon.

p.s. The Rustic Wine Bar Buffet Table built of Old Barn Wood is currently available at UPSCALE RESALE CONSIGNMENT store in Covington, TN

HANDMADE FARM TABLES for CHRISTMAS

We did it again.  A Custom Handmade Farm Table for a family’s new home for Christmas.  This year (2015), the table was built and delivered into a brand new home.  Last year’s (2014) farm table was built and delivered into a beautiful existing home that the family had recently purchased.  And, in one sense, Just Fine Tables sold a very special table back in (2013) at Christmas time through Encore Resales that could be considered a Christmas table.

This year’s Christmas Farm Table… A 60″ SQUARE ASH TOP FARM TABLE:

60" SQUARE FARM TABLE

60″ SQUARE ASH TOP FARM TABLE

This table was only the 2nd square farm table built by Just Fine Tables.  This one is highlighted with an aged and distressed ash wood top mounted on large 5″ farmhouse table legs.  Please note, that the customer will be adding fabric covered chairs to complete most of the ensemble.  The remainder of the table set will be a custom matching bench (the customer realized that some of their friends and relatives have children and… if they spill something, it would be better to do so on a bench.

The 2014 Christmas Table was A MAPLE TOP FARM TABLE With MATCHING BENCHES:

FARM TABLE w/ MATCHING BENCHES- Left Side

MAPLE TOP FARM TABLE w/ MATCHING MAPLE TOP BENCHES

This Christmas Farm Table was unique in that it was built slightly taller than standard table height with the apron skirt inside the legs more than typical and the benches were slightly shorter than typical.  These modifications were because the “man of the house” liked to cross his legs while dining and did not want to be rubbing up on the table.  (Just Fine Tables does our best to work with our customers to get what they want.)

The 2013 Christmas Farm Table was not one requested by a specific customer.  Instead, the table was one built by Just Fine Tables because we wanted to create something special with some hickory wood we found earlier that year.  We also had a beautiful trestle table base in storage we wanted to use if we could find a suitable top.  So… we matched the hickory wood with the trestle base and we built this.

2013 “CHRISTMAS” HICKORY TOP TRESTLE TABLE:

HICKORY TOP TRESTLE TABLE (35"X66") SEATS SIX EASILY

HICKORY TOP TRESTLE TABLE
(35″X66″) SEATS SIX EASILY

As mentioned earlier, this hickory top trestle table was not one built custom for a family at Christmas.  Instead, it was purchased just before Christmas from our Vendor Booth at Encore Resales It was obviously a Christmas Table as you will note the Christmas tree sitting on the table.

Merry Christmas to All and Best Wishes For A Prosperous New Year!

Custom Handmade RUSTIC OBLONG DINING TABLE

A very patient customer from March this year had contacted Just Fine Tables about a special sized dining table and a semi-matching kitchen island console.  Finally, after our relocation to Tennessee, Just Fine Tables completed and delivered the table and kitchen console to the family for their Thanksgiving this year and years to come.

HANDMADE RUSTIC OBLONG DINING TABLE ON CUSTOM METAL BASE:

 

HANDMADE RUSTIC OBLONG DINING TABLE on CUSTOM METAL BASE (42" x 74" x 31")

HANDMADE RUSTIC OBLONG DINING TABLE on CUSTOM METAL BASE                   (42″ x 74″ x 31″)

The top is 100% ash that has been chemically and environmentally aged, distressed, stained, and final finished with water resistant / UV light resistant polyurethane.  The base was custom built per the customer’s requirements* with some personal engineering ingenuity between Just Fine Tables and the contracted local Covington, TN welder.  The base was then cleaned, primed, painted, repainted, and coated with the same kind of polyurethane as the table.  (Note: The base can be removed from the table top.  The mounting design is essentially the same as one Just Fine Tables found on an Ethan Allen table that we restored a couple of years ago.)
* Customer requirements: Plenty of leg room, no table legs on corners, easy to swing legs around underneath without bumping table, and definitely strong and rigid.

IF one looks at the upper left hand side of the table picture one should see an empty kitchen console sitting in front of the kitchen window. …. This kitchen console was also custom built to the customer’s specifications (or as nearly as we could do it).

HANDMADE RUSTIC KITCHEN CONSOLE ISLAND:

HANDMADE RUSTIC KITCHEN ISLAND CONSOLE (17.5" x 44" x 36")

HANDMADE RUSTIC KITCHEN ISLAND CONSOLE (17.5″ x 44″ x 36″)

The Kitchen Island Console’s top and shelves were built from cutoff pieces of the table top ash and prepared and finished similarly. (Note:  One should note that the console’s top and the table top’s center piece are the same wide piece of lumber.)

One should note that the kitchen island console is similar to many of the wine bar buffet table consoles built by Just Fine Tables.  The major differences in this custom piece are that it is on casters so that it can be easily rolled from place to place and that there are no wine bottle slots in the shelves.  The customer plans on using the shelves for cook books, etc., in addition to typical kitchen island uses.

FYI: Prior to finishing the above dining table and island, Just Fine Tables has received our first order of a custom table locally here in Tennessee.  It will be built and delivered to our new customer for Christmas.  The customer found us online at http://JustFineTables.com while searching the web.  The customer was extremely surprised to learn that we currently live only about 20 miles from the customer’s new home.  Anyway, the table desired will be a 60″ Square table similar to this one the customer found on our website.

54" SQUARE FARM HOUSE TABLE w/ MATCHING BENCHES and CHAIRS

54″ SQUARE FARM HOUSE TABLE w/ MATCHING BENCHES and CHAIRS

The new local customer’s table will not have the matching benches.  They will only use chairs with their new table.

NOW!! … Happy Thanksgiving Wishing You and Yours a Very Happy One!!

RUSTIC HANDMADE WINE BAR BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE

As mentioned in the previous post, Just Fine Tables built a Rustic Wine Bar Buffet Table Console with a top that matched the X-Metal Based Farm Tables’ top.  The rustic top was built from the last remnants of ash lumber we had available.   The ash planks on the rustic wine bar buffet console table were aged and weathered for almost three years for that old weathered barn wood type look.  We hope you like it.

RUSTIC WINE BAR BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE (SOLD-Has Found A New Home):

And for reference, here are a couple of other views of the rustic ash top wine bar buffet console table…

RUSTIC WINE BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE

RUSTIC WINE BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE

As you can see, the wine bar buffet table console built with a rustic ash top is complete with a lower shelf for storage and display with six (6) wine bottle slots.  Ideally, this wine bar buffet will make a fine addition in someone’s home for years to come (perhaps it will become a family heirloom; as this table and bench set built over a year ago will become).

ALSO, please note that Just Fine Tables builds customer specified tables, etc.  Feel free to Contact Just Fine Tables atJustFineTables@gmail.com for quotes.

[Just Fine Tables has a custom dining / farm table and a two (2) shelf simi-matching kitchen console in the design stages for a new customer.  The new customer’s desire is to have both beauty and longevity built into their finished order. (i.e. “Tables To Love And Last”)]

The nominal 3′ x 6′ rustic farm / farmhouse table has been in the making for almost three (3) years.  For example, the ash planks were kept outside in the elements having only Just Fine Tables’ Proprietary “Kitchen Sink” stain applied to them with…Mother Nature taking care of the rest.  As a result of Mother Nature’s weathering, these planks have ‘dried out’ and have become even more beautiful and fixed in size. This means that the finished table will maintain its appearance for years to come.  And, because of the aging and the applications of water resistance polyurethane, the tables’ beauty and longevity will be maintained also.

This Handmade Rustic Ash Top Farm / Farmhouse Table shown above is currently displayed at UPSCALE RESALE, Covington, TN in our display booth #469 there.

DISPLAY ROOM

The rustic ash top farm table is obviously the center of attention in our display booth, however, there are several other inviting handmade or refinished furniture and specialty items one can find there.  Most notable WAS the wine bar buffet table console in the back of the booth that has a matching ash top to the ash top farm table; and yes, it too is handmade and is styled for functionality, long-life, and beauty.
In addition to the handmade items, there are a few key refinished furniture pieces found in our booth.  These included a pair of ‘hard to find’ twin bed headboards (sold) and a pair of matching end tables….and of course, there are any number of unique items from serving trays, to distressed lamps, to pictures and picture frames.

Please feel free to let us know your thoughts about our newest farm table and / or the other items that can be found that Just Fine Tables has built or refinished and also those of our partner, J’s-Antiques, Vintage, Etc.

Direct Contact at JustFineTables@gmail.com is recommended.

ASH TOP FARM TABLE & WINE BAR-BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE

An ASH TOP FARM TABLE and An ASH TOP WINE BAR – BUFFET TABLE have been built.  The Farm Table is finished and the Wine Bar-Buffet Console Table is ready for final finishing … to almost match the Farm Table since the Ash Lumber used is from the same 2+ year old supply we brought to Tennessee during our recent relocation.  Since this is the last of supply of the Ash Lumber*, we felt it only appropriate to build something special.  And in this case, two (2) special handmade furniture items.

ASH TOP FARM / FARMHOUSE TABLE On An X-Metal BASE:

The design was chosen to present and combine the warmth and charm one loves in a family farm setting with the freedom of movement and functionality folks want while dining.

Below is a picture of the Ash Top Farm Table before final finishing.   We think you would agree that it looked pretty good at this stage of construction. (FYI: We had a customer back in April 2014 that wanted an Unfinished Ash Top farm table (same lumber supply)  For comparison of the unfinished state, feel free to jump to this link.. Customer Unfinished 2014 Ash Top Farm Table.)

FARMHOUSE TABLE READY FOR FINAL FINISHING (3' X 6')

FARMHOUSE TABLE READY FOR FINAL FINISHING (3′ X 6′)

As mentioned in this post’s title, a Wine Bar – Buffet Table Console was included.  The reason for the addition is that the last remaining pieces of the Ash Lumber were used to build one, at least for the top of the wine bar / console table.

ASH TOP WINE BAR – BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE:

UNFINISHED WINE BAR - BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE (17 1/2" X 54" X 36")

UNFINISHED WINE BAR – BUFFET TABLE CONSOLE (17 1/2″ X 54″ X 36″)

The Wine Bar-Buffet Table Console is staged for its final finishing.

Note: We’re still waiting for Fred, the Farm Cat, to give his final approval to the wine bar -buffet table console. (However, he has been busy taking charge of Momma Cat’s (our other farm cat) protection as she delivered kittens a couple of days ago. )

The Ash Top Farmhouse Table and the Wine Bar Buffet Console should find their way down to Encore Resales in a few days, unless they find a new home sooner.

*Ash Lumber* – Just Fine Tables is looking to secure a new source for this kind of lumber.

INDOOR / OUTDOOR ‘FARM TABLE’ & RUSTIC ‘BARN WOOD CONSOLE / BAR’

TWO (2) 100% HANDMADE PIECES ( An INDOOR / OUTDOOR ‘COUNTRY’ FARM TABLE and A RUSTIC ‘BARN WOOD’ CONSOLE / BAR) Were Completed On Our Tennessee Farm.  …The Country Farm Table was designed and built similar to several tables that we have built in the past that have been a warm welcome in many folk’s homes or porches.  … The Rustic Barn Wood Console / Bar is the first of a new group of table type items planned by Just Fine Tables.

GROUP PICTURE OF THE COUNTRY FARM TABLE AND RUSTIC BARN WOOD CONSOLE / BAR (BEFORE FINAL FINISHING):

As mentioned, the Farm Table was designed and built similar to other farm / farmhouse tables built in the past.  The materials of construction are 100% treated lumber for potential outdoor use.  The top was stained with Just Fine Tables’ proprietary “Kitchen Sink Stain” and distressed. The table base was previously stained and then painted cottage white and distressed.  The entire table was final finished with an outdoor / indoor polyurethane.

FINISHED COUNTRY “INDOOR / OUTDOOR’ FARM -FARMHOUSE TABLE:

Also, Just Fine Tables built a Rustic Console / Bar from Real Barn Wood. ..Yes, for real.  The Barn Wood was part of the flooring found in an old barn shed on the Tennessee Farm.  The barn wood flooring was found to have been partially supported off the ground and … part of it was not.  Because of the wood’s support / unsupported structure .. the wood contained hard old wood some rotten wood ends and a number of wonderful bug holes (all the great things found in real barn wood).

FINISHED RUSTIC ‘BARN WOOD’ CONSOLE / BAR:

The Farm Table and Rustic Console / Bar shown in the ‘Finished’ pictures above were taken in our Booth 47 / 469 at ENCORE RESALES, Pelham, AL.  Yes, Just Fine Tables and our Partner, J’s-Antique, Vintage, Etc. made a 600+ round trip to restock our booth after the Farm Table and Chair Set shown in our previous post found a new owner.

COMING SOON from Just Fine Tables will be…. A Rustic ASH Top Farm Table (comparable to those found at ‘Pottery Barn’ and other upscale furniture stores).  Also, we expect to have an ASH Top Wine Bar-Buffet Table completed along with the Farm Table.

First FARM TABLE From TENNESSEE FARM

Just Fine Tables is completing our First Farm Table under the trees of our Tennessee Farm home.  The table with its chairs is actually a rebuild and update of a tiled-top table set we found during our recent trip to Texas.  We saw its potential and thought that by replacing the tile top with a farm table top and by painting and distressing  the rest of the set that we would have built something worthwhile for someone to enjoy for years to come.

FIRST Tennessee Farm FARM TABLE SET READY FOR FINAL FINISHING:

FARM TABLE And CHAIR SET (31" x 54")

FARM TABLE And FOUR (4) CHAIR SET (31″ x 54″)

We’re sure someone will be enjoying this table and chair set in the very near future.  Looking closely,  you can see Fred, the outdoor neighborhood farm cat, giving his initial approval to our work…. or, is it the aroma from the waffles being displayed?  Regardless, we are confident someone will enjoy this table and chair set soon.

[ NOTE: Just Fine Tables plans to deliver and display this farmhouse table and chair set in our Booth at Encore Resales, Pelham, AL before the Labor Day Weekend.]

Just Fine Tables has plans to complete 2-3 other 100% hand built table items for delivery to Encore Resales with the farmhouse table set above.  These will include:

JUST FINE TABLES – ‘NOW’ On The TENNESSEE FARM

Just Fine Tables has finally made the major relocation move to Tennessee.  All our future Farmhouse Farm Tables and More will reflect that they Have Been Built On The Farm.  Here are a couple of views of the farm to let you know where future tables will be built.

FRONT VIEW FROM FARM HOME:

Front Farm View

REAR VIEW FROM FARM HOME:

REAR VIEW OF FARM

REAR FARM VIEW

p.s. There is a fantastic 3 acre pond between the soybeans and the tree line!! … “Good Fishing” like 5-6 lb bass and 8-10 lb catfish with crappie and bluegill galore.

The majority of Just Fine Tables’ future Farm Tables will be built under big shade trees like the one in the Front View above.  We will temporarily build tables and refinish furniture from an existing garage and a separate small building…and/or under all the wonderful shade trees depending upon the weather.  (We learned two weeks ago that you could work under the shade of the shade trees in 100+ degree temperatures (feeling like 111 degrees due to humidity)) as long as you drank plenty of fluids and didn’t overwork.  …Of course, a breeze was always welcome.)

SOME OF THE TOOLS USED TO BUILD TABLES:

Note:  Most of the major tools are on wheeled carts for easy use. 🙂

OLD LUMBER RELOCATED TO BUILD TABLES, ETC.:

Everything, but the sawhorses, will be used to build 2-3 distinctive farm tables, 2-3 wine bar buffet tables, and {a ‘high end console or two’ from the wood hidden underneath the tarp}.

And, last, but not least… we have a playful helper to keep us on top of things.

FRED:

Please don’t fret, our regular family cats, Super Cat Kitty and P C Baby, stay inside the house.  Fred stays outside.  Besides, we learned that Fred has a family… Momma cat and 3 kittens (ready to find new homes … Interested in a kitten? one black, one gray, & one yellow).

SINGER SEWING MACHINE BASED “DESK – CONSOLE”

Just Fine Tables’ most recent Handcrafted Table is a Stained Maple Top “Desk –  Console” built and supported on a Singer Sewing Machine Base.  Yes! .. a Desk or Console built on a Sewing Machine Base.

MAPLE TOP “DESK – CONSOLE” On A ‘SINGER SEWING MACHINE BASE’:

MAPLE TOP "DESK-CONSOLE' (23" X 60" w/ 4 SHELVES)

MAPLE TOP “DESK-CONSOLE’
(23″ X 60″ w/ 4 SHELVES)

All the materials used to build the table desk – console have been sitting around in our shop for a year or more.  We thought it a good time to build something unique for say, Father’s Day and just to get the materials out of our shop… before our relocation to Tennessee.  Yes, Just Fine Tables is moving to Tennessee.  As a result, we will be able to classify our future farm tables as having been built on a farm. [ Note: We will maintain a sales and show booth at Encore Resales even after the move.]

New View of Table Desk-Console-Sofa Table-Hall Table:

TABLE DESK -  CONSOLE

TABLE DESK – CONSOLE

Back to the Table Desk-Console:  All the maple parts were previously stained with Just Fine Tables’ proprietary ‘kitchen sink’ stain and all the shelves and lower pieces reflect that staining. ( We did finish the lower sections with an application of MINWAX brand ‘Natural’ Stain and a coating of Satin Polyurethane for long life and beauty.)  The stain on the table desk – console top is a combination of our ‘kitchen sink’ stain and a Dark Walnut stain.  The table top was final finished with two coats of polyurethane …with all painted parts painted and poly’d in a satin finished black.

In addition to the Table Desk – Console, Just Fine Tables updated a couple of other furniture pieces. Most notably, a small drop leaf table and a couple of Windsor style chairs.  The Drop Leaf Table and the Windsor Chairs were refinished to match to make a useable table and chair set.

SMALL ‘DROP LEAF’ TABLE & WINDSOR CHAIR SET:

STAINED TOP DROP LEAF TABLE & CHAIRS (TABLE = 35" DIAMETER)

STAINED TOP DROP LEAF TABLE & CHAIRS (TABLE = 35″ DIAMETER)

The Drop Leaf Table Top was Refreshingly Stained and the Table Base and Chairs were Painted and Distressed “Cottage White”.  (Note: This is one of the best small drop leaf tables that Just Fine Tables has had the opportunity to refinish.)

All the above items can be seen at Encore Resales, Pelham, AL … In Our New Booth 47 / 469 there.

REFINISHED OVAL FINE DINING TABLE

Just Fine Tables built a Custom Farm Table for a customer who wanted to replace their existing table that had been dealt a few nicks and scrapes over the years causing it to become less and less attractive.  They had decided a stronger table, with style and beauty would be their best alternative for their home with all the family activities planned for the foreseeable future.
To fulfill their future needs, this Custom Hand Crafted Farm Table was built for the family.

CUSTOM FARM KITCHEN TABLE (42" x 62")

CUSTOM FARM TABLE (42″ x 62″)

“” OK, OK…Yes, this Post is supposed to be about a Refinished Dining Table, isn’t it?  Well, …….here is the rest of the story.

When the Custom Farm Table was delivered to the customer we learned they were planning to give their existing dining table away as they would not use it any longer. And since this was the case, we offered that we would be happy to take it away as our truck was just outside.  They agreed. ( This was early August 2014.)

We had no real idea about what we would do with the table when we brought it back to our shop, but knew we would come up with something.  So, ultimately…. we decided to refinish the table with the expectation that it would make a great family table for someone else to enjoy.  And…. here it is.

REFINISHED OVAL FINE DINING TABLE w/ LEAF:

OVAL FINE DINING TABLE w/ LEAF (44" x 68" -86" Leaf)

OVAL FINE DINING TABLE w/ LEAF ( 44″ x 68″ -86″ Leaf )

As you can see in the picture, the Fine Dining Table is staged being 44 inches wide and 68 inches long.  Do know, there is a Matching 18″ Leaf that fits perfectly extending the table to a full 86 inches if desired.

To refinish the table, it was stained with a combination of Just Fine Tables’ Proprietary Kitchen Sink stain, Dark Walnut stain, and some Ebony Stain.  The combination was needed to repair and/or hide some imperfections found in the underlying veneer top.  The table was final finished with three (3) coats of ‘Minwax’ Helmsman Satin Spar Urethane to provide protection from sunlight, moisture, and temperature changes.   With this finish, this fine dining table should look great for years to come.

The Refinished Oval Fine Dining Table can be seen in Booth 47 / 469 at Encore Resales, Pelham, AL.
Should you have an opportunity to visit Encore Resales, please find the Booth that looks a lot like this…

HANDCRAFTED HICKORY TOP WINE BAR

Working to clean up our shop, Just Fine Tables found enough remnant lumber pieces from previous furniture projects to build a useable sized Hickory Top Wine Bar.   The Wine Bar – Small Buffet Table top was built with two pieces of hardwood hickory that was stained and treated to be both distinctive and water resistant.  The base was stained, painted, and distressed cottage white with two shelves.  One shelf  was built from old pieces of pine table lumber and the other constructed from an old wine rack.  The legs were from some unused porch railing pieces.

HANDCRAFTED HICKORY TOP WINE BAR:

HARDWOOD ‘HICKORY’ TOP

The hardwood hickory top is being highlighted in this posting as the “original uncut pieces of wood” were used to build a farmhouse trestle table about 1.5 years ago (yes, December 2013).  We had to keep the remnant pieces as we loved their beauty.  And to show their true beauty, please see the 2013 farmhouse trestle table below.

2013 HICKORY TOP TRESTLE TABLE:

HICKORY TOP TRESTLE TABLE (35"X66") SEATS SIX EASILY

p.s.  Still have two more 31″ long pieces of the hickory.  Will probably build a small table for personal use with them.

An Indoor – Outdoor Farmhouse Farm Table was delivered to Encore Resales on Mother’s Day.  It is now available to you.
