The Rubow Table

Another custom table built using old school mortise and tenon techniques. The design was to fit 4 chairs on either side between the X base legs with a white base and custom color blend top. A family of 6 with 4 young kids we decided to "child proof" the edges by hand chiseling them to appear distressed. The top showing distressing we decided to add a base of antique oak, sand, then a blend up 5 parts Natural Stain with .5 part weathered for overall pickling age tone and then high performance satin top coat. For the base we reduced Snow White and sprayed several coats to give it a candy shell look that will hold up to a growing family’s gatherings. This table has been one of the most popular for us and comes in a variety of color combos thanks to all the options we are allotted with General Finishes.
