Timeworn is proud to be one of only a handful of companies in the country that can successfully build & ship large restaurant table tops and large bar tops throughout the country. Using top quality equipment, our team is able to craft a single solid wood restaurant table top that is 72” wide and 204” long! That’s 6’ wide by 17’ long, people! It isn’t your grandma’s table seen only once a year at Thanksgiving- this puppy will hold 23 people. If you’re okay with seams in the table or multiple tops for extreme length, there is no limit to how long we can go or the number of people it can seat.
In addition to traditional rectangle restaurant table tops, our team can craft round tables up to 72” in diameter. We are able to bring these oversized designs to life using equipment that was specially made for us, including a 17’ long glue-up rack from Canada and a saw from Germany capable of cutting 20’ or longer.
It’s well known that using the right size table tops in your restaurant, bar, or commercial space can decrease the wait time for your customers and will absolutely maximize your capacity and profit. For smaller restaurants, we often recommend using smaller table tops and simply combining them when a large party needs to be seated. Combining two four-person table tops to make space for six people will eliminate seating for two individuals overall, but typically it’s still a better solution than having one table that seats 8 in a smaller space.
So, What Do We Consider to be an Oversized Table Top?
Any large restaurant table design that exceeds 36” in width or 96” in length is considered to be oversized.
Why Do We Charge More for These Extreme-Length Pieces?
Because it’s a hell of a lot of work! First, our team must source the correct length wood. Then, we craft the extra-long table using our specialized equipment. The entire process generally will require exponentially more time and resources than a more modest-sized restaurant table. Not to mention it takes a team of 8 to move a 100 square foot table!
Who Typically Orders these Large Restaurant Tables?
In general, the larger the restaurant the larger the tables you might find. There are also certain restaurants that specialize in large groups or events where you will find large community tables. When done right, these tables will greatly enhance the restaurant’s overall ambiance. Having large restaurant tables available will also reduce customer discomfort that often occurs when crowding too many small tables into a space.
Are there any Downsides to Using Larger Restaurant Tables?
Simply put, you’re committed. Once you’ve decide to use larger tables, you’re committed to seating the fixed number of seats for that table. It’s also very difficult to move the larger table should you ever want to swap it out for smaller tables for an evening.
