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’
(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:

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.

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.

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.

DISTRESSED “FARMHOUSE CUPBOARD”

“Jumping through hoops”, Just Fine Tables was successful in completing the Refurbishing of a Farmhouse Cupboard that had been earmarked by its previous owner to become someone’s garage storage unit.  Just Fine Tables couldn’t handle the thought of the almost good cupboard being used for general storage.  Hey!, anyone could see it was originally hand built to go into a kitchen / farmhouse dining area.  Unfortunately, it just didn’t quite have the look, and in addition,  it was missing a shelf in the hidden storage area.  So, we made it look like this…

DISTRESSED FARMHOUSE KITCHEN / DINING AREA CUPBOARD:

DISTRESSED FARMHOUSE CUPBOARD  (12 1/2" x 40" x 72" )

DISTRESSED FARMHOUSE CUPBOARD
(12 1/2″ x 40″ x 72″ )

As mentioned, Just Fine Tables refurbished the cupboard by painting and distressing it in a combination of “Cottage White” and Light Gray.  We also added the missing shelf in the hidden storage area as shown below.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG– OUTSIDE FARM TABLE

“If you saw our last post you noted our return to building Handmade Farm Tables” (i.e. the Real Reclaimed Wood Farm Table).  Well… one of the Interior Decorators at Encore Resales decided to take our farm table outside the store for a magazine photo shoot (it is a table that can be used outside).  Just Fine Tables  missed the photo shoot, but was able to see part of the result as the Redecorated Farm Table was brought back inside the Encore store and replaced in our display booth with some of the decorations.  Here is a picture of the Redecorated Handmade Farm Table built from Real Reclaimed Lumber.

REDECORATED FARM TABLE:

We are not sure when the table will be shown in a local magazine, but we do know this will not be the first time that Just Fine Tables’ Farm Tables have made publication attention.

The last publication was made by our specialty table leg supplier, Osborne Wood Products Inc.  Just Fine Tables was just starting out and we had built a fairly large farm table for a nearby Birmingham, AL family.  They had wanted turned farm table legs on their custom table and we built it for them.  They liked it and asked that we add a matching bench to the table, if possible.  We said we would do our best and contacted Osborne Wood again and found some matching legs.  This time, the legs were ‘coffee table’ legs that matched the table legs.  (Note: We cut the coffee table legs down by an inch so that when the matching bench was built, it would be the correct seating height for dining.)

REAL “RECLAIMED WOOD” HAND BUILT “FARM TABLE”

We Did It!  Just Fine Tables has built a New Farm Table.  This one is unique in that it is built almost exclusively from “Real Reclaimed Wood”.  (Yes, the lumber had been used most likely in a building for some tall door facings / openings (i.e. up to 14 ft in length).  The lumber was nailed together at 90 degrees / perpendicular and one side ( the obvious outside side) had been painted a dirty green.)

REAL RECLAIMED WOOD FARM TABLE:

REAL RECLAIMED WOOD FARM TABLE (33" X 60")

REAL RECLAIMED WOOD FARM TABLE (33″ X 60″)

The table top and table apron are 100% reclaimed wood.  The table legs and some of the supports underneath are “aged lumber” that we had available in our shop.   Since, the reclaimed wood was originally painted with an oil-based paint and because the lumber was well aged (i.e. ‘hard as nails’), it was a very simple decision to use an exterior polyurethane as the final finish for the entire table.  Using the exterior poly (also good for indoor use) on the table allows it to be used indoors or outdoors, like on a covered porch, and as a result can be enjoyed for generations.

[ SIDE BAR:  Please note that the reclaimed lumber was originally obtained to be used to replace a family table top (88″ length) to be rustic with the family’s changes in their newly acquired home.  Fortunately, for Just Fine Tables, the family did not accept the price offered by Just Fine Tables to redo their table.  Why?  Having found the difficulty of taking the nails out of the wood and working with it as hard as it was, the more appropriate price to redo the family’s table top would / should have been at least twice the price offered.  (Very happy the family did not accept our offer.) ]

Just Fine Tables has plans to make another table or two with the remaining reclaimed lumber (yes, we have a little more).  And, … we also have plans to finally build one of our Classic Farm Tables with some Aged Ash Lumber we stored (3 years in storage) for just such purpose. (This table, when built, will be one that upscale ‘Pottery Barn’ would salivate to have in their inventory.  Well…., very likely they would.)

P.S.  We made a quick trip to Tennessee over Easter.  While there, we found this beauty and have updated it For Sale at Encore Resales.

P.S.S. The Real Reclaimed Farm Table is also currently Available For Sale at Encore Resales.

Refinishing Old Dining Room Furniture For New Home

In addition to Building Handmade Farm Tables, Just Fine Tables will occasionally Refinish Dining Tables and/or Chair Sets for direct resale or as the result of a customer request.  The latter was the case for a family who wanted to redo their old dining room table and chair set to be useable and appealing in their new home.

REFINISHED DINING TABLE And CHAIR SET In NEW HOME

The refinishing was started about two weeks before Easter with the expectation ( and weather permitting) to have the refinishing completed to allow the family to enjoy Easter with their updated family dining table and chairs in their new home .  As you can see above, the weather was agreeable and we succeeded.

And now, “For The Rest Of The Story”

:: It’s always nice to show finished work, but it’s important for folks to have an understanding and idea of what is required to get to a completed job like the above.  So, …this is what the dining table and chair set looked like beforehand.

ORIGINAL DINING TABLE and CHAIR SET .. (Without CENTER LEAF)

And… the new home kitchen and island setting we wanted to coordinate our table and chair refinishing with…

NEW HOME KITCHEN and ISLAND LOOK

NEW HOME KITCHEN and ISLAND LOOK

The Distressed Black Base of the Kitchen Island and the Dark Granite Counter Tops accenting the lighter colors of the floor tile and island top was the basis for refinishing the chairs, table legs, and table apron to match the Kitchen Island Base.

The table top refinishing was done attempting to coordinate/ complement with some of the darker colors in the granite kitchen island top while maintaining and highlighting some of the natural grain of the table top’s beauty.  (Note: The table top’s natural grain was not readily apparent until it was stripped and sanded.)  Also, since the chairs were going to be refinished to match the kitchen island base, agreement was made that the chairs’ upholstered seats would need to be redone also. (The customer took responsibility of having the seat upholstering done while Just Fine Tables refinished the chairs.)

REFINISHED AND RE-UPHOLSTERED CHAIRS TO MATCH FLOOR TILE AND KITCHEN ISLAND BASE:

REFINISHED and RE-UPHOLSTERED CHAIRS

Note: The chairs were redone before the table, and as a result, they were returned to the customer in order for the re-upholstered seats to be reinstalled while the refinishing of the dining table and its leaf was being completed.

The Total Refinishing of the Dining Table and Chairs Set was completed and delivery accomplished prior to Easter (i.e. shown at the beginning of this post).

However, since Easter… the owner has added a few additional new furniture items to the kitchen and dining area for even more function and beauty.

ENJOYMENT FOR YEARS TO COME!!ENJOYMENT FOR YEARS TO COME

 Oh!, By The Way….. An added benefit to work like the above is the joy of meeting new folks and making new friends.   Please know that … It doesn’t get much better than this.

“ANTIQUE” ROUND “SOLID OAK PLANK” PEDESTAL TABLE

An opportunity to obtain an old Oak Plank Top Pedestal Table that my wonderful partner, J’s-Ave, found a few days earlier, became a reality.  The table was nearly dilapidated upon inspection as some of table top planks would slide out of position and the overall top was not secured well to the base, nor the apron to the planks of the top.  This became obvious when we “rolled’ the table into our shop as the table top started falling apart and one of the main table top supports came loose underneath and dangled as it was rolled (Yes, the table base was removed beforehand).

The table was old, maybe a century old, as some of the 2″ x 4″ supports between the base and top were rough cut (i.e. not planed).  But, because the table was solid wood, and obviously built originally with integrity and skill, we had to have it and restore it for today’s lifestyle wants.

RESTORED ANTIQUE 48” ROUND “SOLID OAK PLANK” PEDESTAL TABLE:

This table restoration was fun.  Seeing how our ‘turn-of-the-century craftsmen’ built furniture was extremely meaningful;  and we learned a couple of new woodworking techniques while restoring this piece! (p.s. The Restored Table is Shown in our Booth 47 / 469 at ENCORE RESALES.)

As normal, Just Fine Tables has more than one project going at a time.  While working on the above, we had a couple of previous table customers wanting us to redo /repair /refinish some chairs to go with the tables they had purchased previously.

The first was a group of six (6) Tell City Chair Co. chairs that the customer had purchased to be redone to match the distressed cottage white base and legs of this antique table from back in late July 2014.

RESTORED LARGE ROUND PEDESTAL DINING TABLE on AWESOME BASE

Separated in its Three (3) Major Parts (Top, Base, and Top-Base Connector) in the shop and moved around for about the past six months or more; .. Just Fine Tables finally Completed the Restoration of a Large Round Pedestal Dining Table with the most Awesome Pedestal Base of any table we have had the opportunity to redo.

RESTORED LARGE ROUND PEDESTAL DINING TABLE on AWESOME BASE:

56" ROUND PEDESTAL TABLE ON AWESOME BASE

56″ ROUND PEDESTAL TABLE ON AWESOME BASE 

<<<<NOTE:  This Table is No Longer Available as It SOLD Recently.>>>>

Credit must be given to my partner, J’s-AVE, for having found this table at a local thrift store back when.  Interestingly, when we were picking up the table and loading it into our truck, we had a lady offer to purchase the table directly from us outside the store…., and yes, for more than we invested in it.
Even with the extended time to restore the table, we found that it didn’t take long for this table to find a new owner. It was purchased yesterday from our Encore Resales Booth.  ??—What we don’t know… was the purchaser?.. the lady who wanted to buy it off the back of our truck 6-8 months ago?

Just Fine Tables will be replacing the large table with a Solid Oak Pedestal Table in a few days to fill the vacant spot in our Booth 47 – 469 at Encore Resales.  Meantime, we have just completed the building of a Handmade Island / Console / Bar Table from some old reclaimed oak planks given to us from our friends at Encore Resales.  Below is a construction picture of the reclaimed lumber island/console/ bar table.

REFINISHED SOLID OAK PEDESTAL TABLE with MATCHING CHAIRS

Just Fine Tables made a blazing trip between snow and ice storms to Tennessee and picked up the Solid Oak Pedestal Table and Chairs that we purchased back in December.  We purchased them from a Church Thrift Store where the table and chair set had been in the Church Parsonage since the late 1970’s – early 1980’s based upon the construction dates found underneath the items.
They were in great shape considering their age, but it was decided that the set could use a little updating (i.e. refinishing) for today’s furniture tastes.

SOLID OAK PEDESTAL TABLE w/ TWO LEAVES and SIX MATCHING OAK CHAIRS:

REFINISHED SOLID OAK PEDESTAL TABLE and MATCHING CHAIRS (42″ Round; 42″ x 62″Oval)

REFINISHED SOLID OAK PEDESTAL TABLE and MATCHING CHAIRS (42″ Round; 42″ x 62″Oval)

As noted, the Oak Pedestal Table came with Two Leaves (10″ each) which allowed the table to grow from a 42″ Round Table up to a 42″ x 62″ Oval Table.  The entire set was stained originally in a classic ‘Early American’ stain.

For our refinishing, we stripped the table top and leaves and applied our proprietary aging stain along with Dark Walnut to give the color you see in the picture.  The table base and the chairs were all lightly Sanded, Primed, Painted Cottage White, and Lightly Distressed.  And then, a water resistant polyurethane finish was applied to the entire set for durability and extended life.

As typical, Just Fine Tables placed the Pedestal Table and Chairs Set in Booth 47 / 469 at Encore Resales to help the set find a new permanent home.  As you can see with the “SOLD” sign, the set is now enjoying a new home and family.

Along with the Pedestal Table and Matching Chairs Set, Just Fine Tables finally ( That’s Finally) completed the restoration and refinishing of a 1900’s chair found at an Estate Sale in the Highland Park area of downtown Birmingham, AL.  The chair as found was covered in coal dust that had accumulated over the years. Needless to say, the chair was dirty, and had to be cleaned thoroughly before one could return it to service.
The cleaning was done with God’s help (rain storm or two) over the past 6-8 months with some added personal ‘elbow grease’ to be able to see the chair’s potential.  The chair was then restored by firming it up structurally, painting it, and then distressing it for overall use and beauty.
