This gorgeous draw leaf dining table is English-made using the finest materials and techniques available to the furniture-making world. The strong solid oak is distressed, finished and waxed all by hand, and you have an option of crossbanding in satinwood or yew wood or none at all. The resulting combination of woods produces a fine lustre and a rich grain that make this country style table a beautiful site to behold. The square-tapered legs also look quite lovely on this table, while also providing sturdy support.The great advantage of the draw leaf design is that this table can be extended by 36 inches, so you have extra seating room for those special occasions. Unlike a drop leaf or a gate leg table, however, in the draw leaf design, the leaves conveniently tuck under the table top. They are also felt-lined so operating them regularly will not cause scratches. Whether you are looking for a formal dining table for special occasions or a large table for regular use, the country style design of this table is simple enough for daily use, yet this table is constructed with such careful craftsmanship that its beauty would suit any occasion!
