If you’ve ever shopped for dining room tables, you know it can be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for. You may find a style you like, but the size won’t work in your dining room. Or you may find one that’s large enough to seat your entire extended family, but the color of the wood won’t look good with your flooring. If you’ve come to the conclusion that you’ll never find exactly what you’re looking for in a furniture store or online, it’s time to consider a custom dining room table.
There are many advantages to having a custom dining room table built for your San Diego home. Like we mentioned above, you can get exactly what you want. This includes the type of wood, stain color, size, and style. When you work with Three Pines, the design of your table is included in the price. We can create a 3D rendering of your dining room table for you to approve before we begin construction to ensure you will get the exact table you are envisioning. In addition, you can also accompany someone from Three Pines to a local sawmill, where you can select the exact slab of wood that will be used for your dining room table.
Unlike other woodworkers in San Diego, we aren’t limited to one or two styles of furniture. We have built unique live edge tables, sleek, modern tables, and some that are more rustic. We are well versed in styles ranging from modern farmhouse to mid-century modern. Tell us about your style, and we’ll design a table you’ll love!
Speaking of the modern farmhouse style, in recent years, we’ve seen a lot of people popping up in the San Diego area who build this style of dining room table. Since modern farmhouse tables tend to be fairly simple in design, they are a good entry-level project for a novice woodworker looking to make a little side income. The problem is, many of the tables constructed by inexperienced woodworkers don’t last very long. They are often built quickly and cheaply, using “green” wood that can easily twist, bow, warp, or contract when exposed to changing temperatures or levels of humidity.
At Three Pines, we take the time to use traditional joinery methods in our table construction that contribute to the soundness of our dining room tables. We also use “stable” wood that won’t move or change shape after the table is constructed. The high-quality, solid hardwoods we use for dining room tables are resistant to dents, helping them look like new for many years to come.
At this point, you might be thinking, “Isn’t having a custom dining room table built really expensive?” We think you might be pleasantly surprised. Our pricing is often comparable to the prices you’ll find at mid-range to high-end retail furniture stores in San Diego. However, when you work with Three Pines, you’ll get a much higher quality product—one that can last for generations!
