This table is 8-foot by 3-foot wide but custom sizes are available. The four benches add functional seating and allow for easy access versus two long benches. They are also lighter than a longer bench making them easier to move when it comes time to sweep up the crumbs. The benches are made with all mortise and tenon construction and from solid wood, as is the table and its legs. The breadboards on the table are hand fit and pegged as they were built 100 years ago. There are very few metal fasteners in the set.
