We make hundreds of custom restaurant tables each year for places all over the country. When we deliver the final product to a customer, it's hard to imagine how many steps went into creating each table.
We've been making a ton of chevron tables lately. We love this look, even though the style adds a lot of steps to the process. The end result is hip and interesting- and well worth the added effort.
One of our talented craftsmen, Ismael, captured his process as he built our latest batch of tables. It's pretty amazing to see the steps from beginning to end.

Start out with raw lumber boards. We use beetle-kill pine for it's sustainability.
Cut them into strips of even width
Arrange strips into even lengths using lots and lots of clamps
Glue ups. That shit is sticky.
Time saver to make the surfaces even
Now you're ready to rock on making the surfaces smooth and clean, and start shaping.
Sand it on down.
Cut into angles
Arrange strips of the angles into chevron pattern
Clamp and more glue.
Time saver again
Wood filler for any weirdness
Cut into circles
Brand the tops
We then added a gorgeous gray stain to the tops, to make for an interesting palette. Notice how the beetle kill stripes still show through, while adding a cool vibe.
Boom dadda boom boom. Just like that. Easy as pie.
