Bonnin Ashley Custom-Bench Made Scandinavian Inspired Trestle Dining Table

$4,250per item

About

This custom bench made design was inspired by an 18th century Swedish country plank table that was in our inventory. Our top is made of re-purposed pine floor boards from Europe that were finished with traditional Scandinavian lye and chalk. The trestle base and stretcher are made of poplar and have been painted in a traditional Gustavian pallet. There are many other options for building and finishing this table listed under variations. Sourcing our wood: The pine planks that we are using for the tabletop were first recycled from a Gouda cheese factory in Holland where they were used as drying planks for the newly formed cheese wheels after being dipped in wax. We imported these boards to the US in the late 1990s where they were then made into floor boards. The floor boards were finished with a traditional Danish chalk and lye finish. These floor boards are now being re-purposed as table tops! An important connection! We use 2 sliding dovetail trestle cross braces to connect the table to the trestle bases. This is done by cutting a dovetail socket the width of the underside of the table and then driving the pin and tail cut on the top of the cross brace through the channel. This allows the table to expand and contract regardless of your climatic conditions and will prevent the tabletop from checking or cupping. The support bracket is then pegged to the upper trestle bases. Our cabinetry employees all 19th century joinery techniques and practices that we have learned and come to understand through 30 years of restoration.

Customization Options

Customers can choose from: Finish: Painted base can be distressed as shown in photos or finished in a natural more contemporary painted or raw wood finish. Wood: Trestle base and stretcher can be made from pine instead of poplar. Table can also be in a traditional scrubbed European pine finish for both the top and the base. We can make this an extension table with bread board leaves that fit into the ends to extend the table.
