Our tabletops are created from 1.5" thick solid hardwood as our standard, but we can also create thicker tabletops at an additional cost.
1.25" thick tabletop: A tabletop created from 1.25" hardwood is quite a solid piece of furniture, especially when compared to the 0.75" or 1" used on many other tables.
1.5" thick tabletop: 1.5" hardwood is thicker than most other tables you'll see, and it is quite solid. This is the standard for our lancaster dining room tables.
1.75" thick and 2" thick tabletop: A lancaster dining room table created from 1.75" or 2" thick hardwood is very solid, very substantial and very heavy.
Measured Thickness of a Completed Tabletop: Please note that in the woodworking process, some of this thickness is sanded and planed away in order to create a flat tabletop surface. This varies depending on the individual piece of wood, but is generally around .125" to .25". This difference between the starting material and the finished product is a consequence of working with natural products, as each piece of wood is unique. This variation in planing and sanding depth will be present on any handmade table.
