Commissioned by the National Trust for their Tudor kitchen at Sutton House, Hackney, London, this plain and simple oak table measures 72" x 42". Instead of being turned, the legs have hand cut chamfers finished at each end with a 'dart' stop. Shaped brackets are the only other decoration on this functional and robust piece, made to withstand the wear and tear of regular practical demonstations and 'hands on' experiences held in the kitchen at Sutton House. Note the 'all round' or 'box' stretchers, which was the normal layout for original period long tables. Modern tastes now generally favour a centre stretcher, so chairs can be slid under. Our 'Links' page above has a link to the Sutton House website.

Our sister site Early Oak Reproductions has full details on this refectory table with all-round stretchers including size, colour, finish and price options.
