Ordering a kitchen table from a furniture builder

I became very frustrated when I started shopping for a kitchen table.

I was looking for furniture of especially good quality.

I wanted a sturdy table that could withstand the wear and tear of family meals every single day. I have three kids who are messy. I can’t have a table that easily stains, dents or scratches. It needs to be easy to clean but also attractive. My kitchen is a decent size but can’t support a gigantic table with huge chairs. I tried every local furniture store. I checked antique stores and estate sales. I even spent an entire Saturday browsing garage sales. The ideal kitchen table seemed impossible to find. My mother suggested I contact a custom furniture builder. She’d reached out to a local craftsman to build a sleigh bed as a wedding gift for my sister. She was extremely pleased with the quality and the price of the piece. I wasn’t sure I could afford a custom made kitchen table. However, when I spoke with the furniture builder, I discovered that the cost wasn’t that much higher than what I’d encountered in the big box stores. Plus, I had the opportunity to choose everything from the materials and finish to the style and dimensions. The custom furniture builder was especially knowledgeable and shared suggestions. He helped me determine the size and shape. The table is ideal for the look and layout of my kitchen. It accommodates my family’s needs and elevates the aesthetics of the kitchen. I am impressed by how sturdy and durable the construction is. My youngest son likes to sit on the table, and it easily supports his weight.
