We love building reclaimed wood round tables! With our round tables we use a trestle style, pedestal base, which allows more seating because it eliminates table legs that can get in the way of your chairs. Here are some of the things that we need to know to get you a proper quote.
The standard height of a dining table is pretty consistent. To function well, it has to be high enough so that there is enough clearance space above the knees of those who gather round to eat or chat. To be able to dine comfortably the table should not be too high. For that reason most dining tables are 28" to 30" tall.
How big? What diameter?
A round table creates a cozy atmosphere, and it is easy to see every one at the table without having to lean over. However, this may not be the best shape for a large number of people. While it is easy to see everyone, it might not be as easy to carry on a conversation when you have to yell at someone 7 feet away from you on the other side of a large round table. A large round table also might not be best for smaller spaces. Here's a pretty good standard for choosing the right sized round table based on the number of people you would like to seat. 3 foot round table seats 3-4 people. 4 foot round table seats 4-5 people 5 foot round table seats 6-7 people 6 foot round table seats 8-9 people 7 foot round table seats 9-10 people Keep in mind that with the pedestal base it's easy to squeeze in more people if you need to. Also keep in mind that large round tables can make it difficult to reach for food. Rectangular shapes seem to work better for seating large crowds.
