Our Custom-Made Reclaimed Wood Dining Room Table

John and I discovered Eddie’s Furniture in Somerville when we first started shopping for furniture for our new home. We actually got our first new piece for the house from them.

Throughout our furniture shopping experience the top priority to buy was a new dining room table. We’d hoped to find something made with reclaimed wood in a rustic style. After much searching, we found nothing we loved. We learned that the owner of Eddie’s (Eddie) made custom furniture so we asked him to make us a table and matching bench. We gave him a few guidelines (reclaimed/barn wood, rustic style, simple legs) and he got to work. The whole process took about 3 weeks to make, finish, and deliver. Honestly it was pricey but I know we’ll have this table forever so it was worth it.

We couldn’t be happier with the results! The table is gorgeous, rich, warm, just the perfect addition to our new home.


The wood is simple yet timeless.



Every time I look at it I smile.


I can’t wait to share memories and meals alike around this table.

  1. I am new to your blog. I sent you a message over at Flickr but then realized you may not log in often over there. i am in LOVE with this dining set. We are currently in the process of selling one place and buying another locally. The new place has a bit smaller dining area than we have now. Plus I would love to just start over in terms of what I have. I wanted to chat a bit about your experience with them doing a custom piece. Also maybe ask ballpark about cost. Rude, I know. But you can choose not to answer. I am loving your blog, your home and your enthusiasm for cooking.

    1. Sorry about that, I haven’t logged into Flickr in a while.

      The experience was great. You can find my whole review over on Yelp. The cost of the bench and table were about $1800. Super pricey but they are excellent quality, all locally sourced, and something we’ll have forever.

      Thanks so much for the kind words!
