circa: 2000 width: 73 height: 31 length: 42 This stunning dining table is English-made by hand from solid, quartersawn oak. The antique style farm table design affords this piece a pleasant combination of firm strength and simple beauty, while the hand-carved barley twist legs offer a nice touch of elegance. Of course, the solid, quartersawn oak is quite striking, with a rich complexion and a highly distinct grain--the wood looks especially splendid, however, because it is treated to an elaborate finishing process that includes hand-distressing and a coat of wax, which really fleshes out the character of the wood. The added benefit of a wax finish is simple durability: when the finish wears down the road, simply re-wax this table and it will look like new. This is, in fact, the secret of European and English furniture, and why it remains so beautiful after many years, as will this fine oak table.
