Country Farm Furniture Collection
The Country Farm Furniture Collection offers custom wood furniture for the dining room, bedroom, living room and office. This workshop specializes in making one of a kind dining tables, coffee tables, console tables, end tables, desks, bookcases, TV stands, cabinets and buffets. Each piece of furniture is individually bench made and finished to order in pine or assorted American hardwoods. Furniture finishing includes professionally applied stain or paint, hand rubbed and hand distressed. Three environmentally friendly clear top coats on all stain and paint finishes provide a superior durable surface. This US based workshop has been making custom wood tables and furniture for over 20 years.
Material: Pine, Poplar, Oak, Maple, Cypress.
Janka Hardness (Higher = Harder): Pine: 420, Poplar: 540, Cypress: 510, Maple: 950, Oak: 1290.
Density (lbs/cubic ft): Pine, Poplar, Cypress = 30. Oak, Maple = 45.
Moisture Content: All wood is dried to a 7-9% moisture content to minimize swelling and cracks.
All woods are all selected at furniture grade quality levels to ensure uniform characteristics and appearance for each wood type.
Pine: White Pine. White pine wood is straight-grained softwood with an even medium texture. It also tends to feature quite a few dark knots, as pine trees grow branches down almost the entire trunk of the tree. Most are familiar with white pine as a soft white color, sometimes with a touch of yellow to it. Pine is an economical material, stains nicely and, since our tables are already distressed, can be an excellent choice. Even furniture grade select white pine will have some knots that can bleed through surfaces, particularly with lighter colors. However, knots do add character to distressed wood tops. Bleed through on painted finishes can be avoided with a poplar, oak or maple top. Bleed through on stained finishes can be avoided with a maple or oak top.
Poplar: Poplar is one of the most common hardwoods in the United States. The wood is straight grained, uniform in texture and moderate to light weight. It has a medium density, machines and glues well. Pine is a softwood while poplar is a soft hardwood. There is really not much difference in the strength between pine and poplar. Poplar is better for painted finishes to avoid knots which can be present in pine.
Oak: When it comes to choosing hardwood for a custom table, many people consider oak. It’s a good choice as oak is one of the most durable types of wood as well as one of the most readily available. Forested throughout the U.S. Oak is also considered more environmentally friendly as it has a much lower carbon footprint than more exotic woods. It is a light to medium brown, commonly with a reddish cast. The grain is straight, with a coarse, uneven and distinct texture and pattern. The wood is hard, tough and durable. It can be stained or painted but the grain will still be visible.
Maple: Maple is strong, heavy, hard, straight-grained and fine textured. It is a light white hardwood that sometimes has a reddish tinge. One of the hardest wood species, maple is often chosen for heavy-use items, like dressers and kitchen cabinets. Along with cherry, walnut, and oak, maple is considered to be among the favorite hardwood choices for furniture building. Maple is generally considered to be very durable, and attractive when properly finished.
Cypress: Cypress wood is very durable, stable, water- and rot-resistant, fine textured, straight grained, light colored wood. Noted for its color consistency, density, and few knots, cypress wood is superbly workable, easily machined and installed, and readily finished. Although cypress benefits from the same decay-resistant qualities as redwood and cedar, it is harder and stronger. Cypress is extremely decay and insect resistant due to the naturally occurring preservative known as cypressine. Therefore, a table constructed out of cypress can be used outdoors!
Cypress rates among the top North American woods in decay resistance and durability when exposed to weather. Unprotected wood eventually weathers to a light gray. For exteriors, you can let it weather naturally (turns gray or charcoal color), but it will perform better long term if you seal it with a stain or paint. If using stains, please use oil based wood stain with a mildew inhibitor. For your information, most clear stains last 1 – 3 years, semi-transparent colored stains (wood grain still visible) last 3 – 5 years, solid colored stains last 5 – 10 years, and most paints last 10 – 20 years.
Wood Check Cracks: Our wood tables are constructed from real trees and/or solid planks of wood, not engineered wood, and professionally dried to 6 – 12% moisture content before any build. Solid wood adjusts to the moisture content in the air at different times of the year. In a sense, the wood breathes just like us. Therefore, the temperature and humidity of your home will affect how your table behaves. To avoid this problem, cabinets and other case goods are normally built with furniture grade panels consisting of internal alternating grain wood sheets sandwiched by outside sheets of finished wood. This type of construction does not work well for most table tops, so we use a glued wood plank construction. As a result, you may notice your table and/or breadboard move slightly or develop small check cracks or dips. You may also notice occasional lifting on the epoxy or resin fills we use in processing our reclaimed wood tables. THIS IS PERFECTLY NORMAL. This is the inherent character of planked wood construction and is not considered a defect in material, nor will affect the structural integrity of the table.
Distressing & Rub
Distressing: Distressing applies to both stained and painted tables. Distressing refers to nicks and dings in the wood, Our tables are carefully hand distressed to provide the look and character of an aged table. Distressing can be specified as light or medium.
Rub: Rubbing applies to painted tables only. Rub refers to where the top color is rubbed through to reveal the wood or a second color underneath. All of our hand rubbed paint finishes can be applied with a light or medium rub depending on how much of the top color should be removed to achieve the targeted appearance. Rubbed painted finishes show small areas of the paint rubbed off, revealing light brown stained wood underneath. Light rub is generally visible on the edges of the table.
Two Color Rub: A Two Color Rub is when one paint color is applied over another and then rubbed off to reveal the underneath color and the light brown stained wood. A Two Color Rub is available with a light or medium rub.
Planked: Planked tops are built with the original tongue and groove construction, not machined. Groove width and height differences between planks can vary due to the normal movement of wood caused by temperature and humidity changes. These variations can be more noticeable in longer tables and pine tables. These variations can cause a plate or glass to rock on the table top. Plank widths can vary depending on material and top thickness but average 6-8”. Planks can be equal width or random width. Plank top edges and corners will be rounded with an option for square edges and corners,
Seamless: Wood planks in a seamless top will be glued together with no groove between the boards. The different wood planks in a seamless top will be visible, but the differences between planks will vary with the wood type and grains of the planks used in each specific top. Seamless plank widths can vary depending on material and top thickness but average 4-6”. Seamless planks can be equal width or random width. Edges on seamless tops without breadboard ends can be finished with either a rounded, square or thumbnail edge and corners. Seamless tops with breadboard ends can only be finished with rounded or square edges and corners.
Optional. A 2" Breadboard is standard. Custom size breadboards are available for an upcharge.
A breadboard refers to the contrasting piece of wood at the end of the table. In the past, it was used to ensure that the plank top table didn't warp, but today is purely decorative. Please note: The breadboard end does move with changes of temperature and humidity, and the ends may extend beyond the table edge during the colder, drier months of the year.
Top Thickness: Standard Top = approx. .75-.875", Thick Top = approx. 1.25 – 1.50", Extra Thick Top = 1.75 – 2.00” . Table tops vary in size because each piece of wood is different. The thickness of the table top is only for aesthetics and does not affect the table structure. Table heights will vary with the thickness of the table top – Standard Top: 30"H (approx. 29.75 – 29.875). Thick Top: 31"H (30.25” – 30.50”).
Leg Sizes: Standard legs: 3”-3.25"W. Large legs: 3.75"- 4”W. Extra Large Legs: 5”W. Leg height is 29”H.
Aprons: Apron heights are 4”H. The bottom of the apron is 25” from the floor.
Corners & Edges: Square: square corners and ⅛” radius on all edges. Rounded bullnose: 1” corner radius on standard top and 1.5” corner radius on thick top, ¼” radius on edges for both thicknesses.
End Extensions: 18”W Standard. Optional widths: 19” to 24”W. End extensions will have breadboard ends if breadboard ends are specified for the table top. End extension guides are slightly tapered to provide firm fit when inserted in square apron cut outs at the end of the table. When stored back to back two end extensions are about the size of a card table.
Drop Leaf Extensions: Drop leaf tables have a center minimum width of 18", and the leaves can be 6" to 12". Select total width of table and size of drop leaves to determine center width.
