We were very fortunate to have been hand-selected by the owner to collaborate with on this incredible project. Our role was to create the dining table slab peninsula that integrates into the kitchen island/prep counter. Twelve feet of material was required to have enough of the slab to notch into the counter while providing space to seat up to 12 people when the occasion calls for it. The piece resides in downtown San Francisco in a newly renovated loft, of which modern design and functionality were the focus and intent of the build from the ground up. The style and decor of the loft revolves around a theme of sleek and high tech appeal intertwined with creative wall art and a mixture of elements. An important underlying factor of the overall redesign was also that the building itself is over 100 years old, an original printing factory constructed in the early 1900s converted into loft apartments in the 1990s. Preserving the room's authenticity was kept in mind, told by the surrounding cement walls and large cement columns. Bringing in an organic element of the live edge wood as an integrated dining table was a creative way to add a contrasting focal point to the open room. As a final touch, we paired the table with a matching bench using a slab from the same tree.

Though countless options were available to use for the dining slab, it was integral that we use a piece with prominent character that would stand up to the surrounding atmosphere. The piece chosen provides rich color with golden and deep amber hues, bold grain pattern and a unique shape with wild variation. Some natural holes and cracks were also part of the criteria, leaving some unaltered while others were chosen to fill with a clear epoxy. The kitchen island acts as a platform for the slab to slide into.

If you are interested in a custom piece like this, please contact us and provide the following info:

- requested dimensions

1. STANDARD CARNAUBA WAX FINISH | This will allow the color of the steel to remain natural and bright. The steel is ground and polished, followed by several applications of carnauba wax. We will supply you with application instructions and a small wax tin that should last about 5-10 years. Application is simple, rubbing a modest amount on, allowing it to dry, and then rubbing off the excess. 2 applications every few years for maximum effect. Not recommended for humid or coastal climates.
COST | +$0 (included)

2. CLEAR COAT FINISH | This will preserve the natural color of the steel, but will protect it from staining and rusting and requires no upkeep. The steel is ground and polished and will remain natural and bright. 
UPGRADE COST (single leg) | +$45

3. BLACK MAGIC PATINA FINISH + CLEAR COAT | This finish is going to give off a more industrial look, bringing the color of the legs to a deeper/darker grey. Several hand-rubbed coats are applied to the steel legs, allowing drying times between and repeating the application several times until the desired color is reached. This process combines the patina and clear coat for maintenance-free durability.
UPGRADE COST (single leg) | +$75

4. POWDER-COAT FINISH | Powder-coating would allow us to achieve just about any color, matte or glossy. If you are unfamiliar with powder-coating, it is a free-flowing dry powder that is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to form a hard finish that it tougher than conventional paint. It's used mainly for coating auto parts, bike parts and outdoor furniture which require super durable and water resistant finishes. Colors are limitless, but typically our clients prefer a simple black powder-coat. We can arrange to have the legs professionally powder-coated by a pro steel shop in our neighborhood, who charges accordingly for different dimensions.
UPGRADE COST (single leg) | +$125

If you are unsure of the exact table size you'll need, consider the following basic guidelines:
-  First determine the maximum number of guests you wish to have room to seat
-  Provide each guest 24-30 inches of space at the dining table (chairs range from apprx 16-20" and require at least 6" of space on each side to allow guests to seat comfortably)
-  Add an extra 12 inches at each end for those seated at the head and foot of the table
-  Allow for at least 36 inches between the dining table and any walls or other furniture
