Three unique table top styles to choose from.
An uneven, rough-sawn surface (with saw marks) featuring board seams and breadboard ends creates a beautiful, rustic, distressed appearance. The top thickness is 2½".
A flat, smooth surface (free of saw marks) with board seams and breadboard ends creates a beautiful, clean look that brings out the wood grain. The top thickness is 2½".
A seamless, smooth, thinner surface, our Seamless Slab top gives the appearance of one solid wood slab for a cleaner, more modern look. The top is 1½" thick.
Extend your table. Expand your gathering.
Our leaf extensions add 24" of additional dining space (two to four additional seats) around the table for all of your guests. It’s easy to install for hassle free dinner party preparation. Each leaf is 12" wide and easily slides into both ends of the table.
Complete your table with a matching bench or two.
Signature Bench With Back
The Clare Trestle
Once upon a time, in the small workshop nestled within the heart of a quaint town, a story of craftsmanship unfolded. The inception of our tale began with the creation of the Clare Trestle farm table in the year 2018. It was not just a piece of furniture; it was a dream materialized. Inspired by a desire for a rustic dining table of enduring quality, my father and I embarked on a journey of creation. The table was carefully handcrafted, each detail infused with a passion for authenticity. As the table graced our home just in time for the inaugural Thanksgiving gathering, its charm captured the hearts of all who gathered around. The whispers of admiration quickly transformed into a chorus of demand, and so, with the birth of Great Lakes Farmhouse, our humble workshop blossomed into a haven of artisanal treasures, destined to be cherished for generations to come.

Cherry wood exudes elegance, timelessness, and strength, characterized by abstract patterns and tight waves in its grain. Renowned for its distinctive color and aging transformation, it begins as a light pink and gradually deepens into a luxurious reddish hue, acquiring a lustrous patina over time. Whether showcased in its natural state or enhanced with staining, cherry wood radiates a captivating aesthetic.
White Oak wood possesses exceptional durability and strength, characterized by a grain pattern featuring long lines and rounded arches. In its natural form, White Oak tends to exhibit a lighter shade of beige. This light coloring renders Oak an ideal hardwood for staining with any of our custom colors.
Walnut wood epitomizes sophistication and enduring elegance. Renowned for its opulent chocolate hue adorned with creamy blonde streaks, it accentuates its exquisite and distinctive grain patterns. Whether in its natural form or enhanced with our custom stains, walnut exudes a stunning aesthetic appeal.
Poplar is the standard choice of wood for our table bases. It’s a beautiful hardwood that we use to complement the top style and color of your choice. While Poplar is softer compared to the other hardwoods we offer, it showcases exceptional aesthetics when stained or painted.
