Lucas and Daniel have inherited the art of woodworking from family tradition and have gained a great reputation in the furniture industry. With over 20 years of combined experience, Lighthouse has expanded to the more artistic, custom side of the trade, designing and building tables. They have taken the concept of custom tables and furniture to the next level.
We want to collaborate with you to create a beautiful and unique table that completes your home.
We have inherited the art of building custom wood tables and it is our passion. We only use the highest quality hardwoods and we are constantly adding new designs and styles to our portfolio of custom tables. We are capable of providing almost any design that you want (just send us a picture of something you like!). You can also see many unique table designs on our website and Instagram page. Once you have a custom table design in mind we encourage you to come visit our Boston workshop in person so that we can provide some guidance around the finer details like size, extensions, wood species, style, and finish.
When you first get in touch about building a custom dining or kitchen table, we have to take into consideration the space/area where you want to put the table. Whether you are choosing a custom dining table, farmhouse table, or live edge table, the size of the table depends on how big your space is and the number of people you want to be able to seat at the table. Just as an aside, we can also build custom chairs and benches that will match your table (a complete dining set!). Here is a basic guideline to help size your custom wood table:
There are no set standards for the width of the table but the typical range is anywhere from 36” to 42”. It depends on the space available and, of course, your preference. The table can be square, round, oval, rectangular, etc. We are experienced enough to make pretty much any type of reclaimed wood, live edge, or other custom table.
Custom wood extensions (also called company boards) are available to increase the size of your table when you need a few extra seats. Extensions can be built to insert at either or both ends of the table. We don’t build traditional table leaves as we prefer the company boards for overall stability and structural integrity. Company boards are also preferable because we do not have to build a table in pieces with all kinds of complicated hardware. A good size for extensions is usually about 18” to 24” but we can customize them depending on your needs.
We do not use plywood, veneer, or any faux-woods for the custom wood tables we build. We only use real hardwoods and most often, reclaimed hardwoods. The choice of wood species is completely up to each customer's preference but we will, of course, provide all the guidance we can as wood experts. Our customers usually choose the wood species based on the natural color they prefer or the grain pattern they like most.
We specialize in all kinds of reclaimed tables, farmhouse tables, and live edge tables including Oak, Walnut, and Hemlock. All of these options have a unique and natural beauty suitable for a custom dining or kitchen table.
We are very experienced and professional woodworkers so we really care about design and create beautiful wood tables with a top-notch finish.. We are capable of making almost any design that you might see in a showroom, magazine, on Instagram, etc. Just send us a picture of your favorite design and we will try to make it a reality for you. Our services are not limited to creating a replica of your favorite design or the tables on our website as we can also work on changing the finer details of whichever style you have in mind.
The top choice for most of our customers is to go with a natural finish on their custom table. We use multiple coats of a very high-end, chemical-free wood oil until it saturates the wood completely. This product allows us to apply and maintain the table with oil but provide it with the protection of a strong varnish. It creates a matte look that is liquid-resistant resistant and which allows for spot-refinishing. Choosing an oil finish is brings out the natural beauty of the wood in an incredible way as you can see in the pictures. Please contact us if you are interested in some other type of finish.
Other Details About Our Custom Tables
At Lighthouse Woodworks we create custom wood tables that are beautiful, functional, and long-lasting. Each member of our team works on one piece at a time to provide a high-quality product. Our owners work on each custom table to make sure they keep their natural beauty and that is why we focus so much on choosing the right wood material for the table. We use lumber that is grown (or reclaimed) in the United States for our custom reclaimed tables and mostly lumber from Canada for our live edge tables.
