Paul McCobb Planner Group Dining Table
I just got this gorgeous Paul McCobb dining table back from my finisher, and I have to say I'm quite pleased with it. This table fell victim to what I'm going to refer to as the "Great Ebony Stain SNAFU of '09". I will explain this in more detail in an upcoming post, but for now let's just say that this table was stripped and sanded one time more than we would have preferred. However, once we finally got the stain right, it came out looking gorgeous. I'm particularly fond of the design of this table, in that it has both drop leaves and center extension leaves, which makes it exceptionally versatile. With all three center leaves in and drop leaves up, the table measures about 7 1/2' long. With center leaves removed and drop leaves down, it measures less than 2'.
Here's the same table (but with only one leaf instead of three), in New York, listed for $3800. I think I'll price mine at around $2300.
