Dreaming of the Perfect Custom Dining Table

Dreaming of the Perfect Custom Dining Table

The Vision

Imagine this: You’ve always wanted a dining table that not only fits perfectly in your space but also reflects your unique style.

A custom dining table made of solid timber seems like the ideal choice. It’s not just a piece of furniture; it’s a statement, a place where memories will be made, from family dinners to holiday celebrations.

Choosing the Right Furniture Maker

The first step is to find the right furniture maker. This is crucial because the craftsmanship will determine the quality and longevity of your table.

You start by researching online and maybe even visiting showrooms.

Lumber Furniture Review

A good custom furniture maker should have a portfolio of their work. See our Instagram for photos on most of our furniture that has been delivered to our clients homes over the years. 

For example, at Lumber Furniture, we pride ourselves on our expert craftsmanship and the high quality of our custom pieces. 

Deciding on the Timber

Types of Timber

Choosing the right timber is an exciting part of the process. Different types of wood offer different aesthetics and durability. Here are some popular choices:

- American White Oak: Known for its strength and classic look.
- American Red Oak: Offers a warm, rich color.
- Blackbutt: Highly durable, great for high-use furniture.
- Messmate: Features unique grain patterns.
- Marri: Known for its distinctive appearance.
- Spotted Gum: Durable and visually striking.
- American Black Walnut: Luxurious and dark-toned wood.

Measuring Your Space

Precision is Key

Accurate measurements are essential. You’ll need to measure the space where the table will go, considering not just the length and width but also the height and the surrounding area. Measure 80cm from walls , the island bench, stools or buffet. 

This ensures that the table will fit perfectly and leave enough space for chairs and movement around it.

Setting a Budget

Realistic Planning

Creating a custom dining table is an investment.

You need to set a realistic budget that covers the cost of materials, labour, and any additional features or finishes you might want.

Saving up for this dream piece might take time, but it will be worth it.

Placing the Order

The Exciting Part

Once you’ve chosen the furniture maker, the timber, and set your budget, it’s time to place the order.

Visiting the workshop to discuss your vision and see where your table will be crafted is an exhilarating experience. At Lumber Furniture, we invite clients to our factory for an in-depth consultation to ensure every detail is perfect.

Decorating the Dining Area

Choosing the Right Elements

Now that your table is almost ready, it’s time to think about decorating the dining area. Here are some elements to consider:

- Painting: A beautiful painting can set the tone for your dining space. Consider pieces from local artists or look for options that complement the wood’s colour. We just love Lionia Artist https://lionia.art/
- Chairs: Comfort and style are key. Look for chairs that match your table’s aesthetic. Check out our chair options
