Description

This impressive dining table is a grand offering of epic proportions. It was a custom piece crafted especially for an Anglican Vicarage in the upper South Island. It's a stunning offering, large enough to fit Jesus and most of the twelve disciples if they were to squeeze in.

The quality of this piece is quickly evident, the lavishly grained table top is crafted from massive planks of solid old growth teak. Two sets of unique, cigar shaped tripod legs provide the necessary support for the substantial table top.

This is one of the finest dining tables we have seen and a gem in the legacy of New Zealand furniture maker Backhouse.
