custom farmhouse tables

Why invest in hardwood tables

Do you remember the table you sat around with your family when you were growing up? For all those birthday celebrations, holiday feasts and family game nights? I bet if that table could talk it would have a lot of stories to tell. All the sharing, laughing out loud, great conversations and those not so great conversations – all happened around the table.

At Great Lakes Farmhouse we build tables just like the one you remember. One that will be around for your family to begin creating all those special moments and new memories on. We use 100% American hardwoods that are sustainable, durable, and versatile, so after 5 years from now you won’t have to go shopping for a new one. Our tables are timeless and built to last!

Beautiful hardwoods

Currently all our custom farm tables and furniture are made from beautiful White Oak and Poplar. However, very soon we will be adding Walnut and Cherry wood to the list. We love White Oak because of its strength, beautiful grain and texture. White Oak also resists decay making it perfect for outdoor furniture as well. That’s also something you’ll be seeing from us soon!

Along with our hardwoods, we offer a variety of beautiful stain options as well. A lot of thought and experimenting goes into our color choices. These range from rich deep tones to neutral grays. We’ve also put together a color sample pack of these colors on real wood so you can see how the colors you choose will look in your home. Keep a lookout for more colors coming soon.  


Our customers come to us for our distinct designs and heirloom quality tables that can only come from beautiful hardwoods. When you invest in a Great Lakes Farmhouse table you can buy confidently knowing you’re getting a custom hardwood table that’s built to last for a lifetime of memories.
