We here at Timeworn are excited to announce a new line of cherry wood restaurant table tops! This debut has been several months in the making as our craftsman took extra time to locate the best sourcing for raw materials, test and perfect the staining process, and get acclimated to working with this stunning breed of wood. It has been a very exciting summer preparing to launch these new restaurant tables and we’re eager to start taking orders very soon!
To the average person, cherry wood may be just another box to check when ordering cabinets at Home Depot; but for the experienced woodworker, cherry is a remarkable material for crafting beautiful things. Take our crash course below and you’ll see why we are so excited to get started crafting restaurant table tops with cherry!
