At Three Pines Wood Co., we build a lot of custom dining tables for homes in San Diego—probably more than any type of furniture piece. One of the reasons for their popularity is likely because dining tables can be “signature pieces” in a home. They are substantial in size and are typically placed in a prominent area of the home. They make a statement like not many other pieces of furniture can. A dining table is also the piece of furniture that families gather around for special meals together, giving it even more significance in a household.
In addition to these reasons, our San Diego clients have had other specific reasons for having a custom dining table built. Maybe you will resonate with one or more of them.
Needing a Specific Size of Dining Table
We had a client come to us a while back looking for a custom dining table that was taller than standard. A tall dining table might not seem like something that would be hard to find in stores, but it’s actually virtually impossible to find! Pretty much all dining tables sold in stores and online will be 28” to 30” tall. (Unless you want a “bar height” table, which will be 41” to 43” tall).
If you want a table that’s in between standard height and bar height, you won’t find one if you’re only looking in furniture stores.
Our clients were taller than average people, and wanted a dining table that worked for them—not just for the average height people that most dining tables are built for. We were able to build them a custom dining table in the exact dimensions they wanted. And since our tables are built to last a lifetime, they’ll never have to search for another dining table again!
Similarly, we’ve had other clients who need dining tables to fit rooms in their homes that didn’t have the typical dimensions of a dining room. They either had a dining room that was exceptionally large and needed a large table to fill the space, or they had a dining room that was very narrow and needed a table that was proportionally narrow.
In all of these cases, Three Pines was able to design and build custom dining tables that fit perfectly and met all of our clients other expectations with regard to style and quality.
Wanting a Dining Table that Won’t Fall Apart
Have you ever bought a dining table from a furniture store that looked great in the store, only for it to start to fall apart after only a short amount of time? Maybe the legs started to get wobbly, or the surface got scratched or dented easily.
Most of the dining tables you’ll find in stores or online are not built to last. They are mass produced using cheap materials.
Many of the clients that come to us looking for a custom dining table are sick of dealing with poorly made tables, or spending money to replace their dining tables when they start to break down. They want something that will look great and still be solid after many years of use.
At Three Pines, we build dining tables that are built so well that they can be passed down to future generations!
Other Special Requests
In addition to concerns about size and quality, some of our clients have other reasons that lead them to a custom furniture company like ours. They may have a very specific vision for what they want their table to look like, or they want it to match a piece they already own—such as an heirloom hutch that will also be in their dining room.
One of our recent clients in Ramona wanted their dining room table to be built out of some 2’x4’ lumber that they had taken out of their home when they remodeled it. Our team was able to turn their reclaimed lumber into a unique and beautiful end-grain dining table that they can treasure for a lifetime, and that’s also a part of their home’s history.
