Oak Gate Leg Oval Dining Table
Oak Gate Leg Oval Dining Table
This exquisite oak gate leg dining table was recently hand-crafted in England as an antique style reproduction. The oak displays a deep, lustrous complexion that contrasts beautifully with the lovely border of yew banding. The wood looks especially lovely, however, because of the elaborate seven-step finishing process that our cabinetmaker applied to this piece. This process ended with a fine, hand-rubbed coat of wax that really brings out the beauty of the wood in addition to adding an added layer of protection that can be repaired by simply re-waxing the surface twice a year. The bobbin-turned legs are likewise quite beautiful--but don't let their elegance fool you, they are very sturdy. The gate leg design itself is quite flexible, placing the width at 26" with the leaves down, and a total of 84" when the leaves are raised. The 7' x 5' surface is thus quite substantial and suitable for a variety of occasions. Lastly, because this table is brand new and made of solid oak, it is extremely sturdy and will last for generations to come--so this is definitely a quality heirloom piece!Dimensions: 84" wide x 60" deep x 31" high
