French Pine Dining Table - SOLD

French Pine Dining Table - SOLD

SOLD - This gorgeous former 19th Century Pétrin (bread dough bin) has been transformed into a very useable 2m-long dining table!


We have commissioned Alex and Cameron from ModMen to professionally restore, strengthen and transform this table and we are very happy with the result! Not a surprise when you know that Alex worked on the cabinets fitted to the Queen’s train carriage for her Royal Visit in 1953-1954!


The table is made of natural French pine. It has had some extensive woodworm works inside, but this has not affected the integrity of the table, which has been fumigated upon arrival in New Zealand, and then checked and strengthened by the ModMen guys.


Pétrin are built with a deep bin under a lid to prepare large amounts of bread dough (typically used by a baker or a large household). We have had the bin shortened to be at the same level as the table sides: this means that there is now plenty of legroom for 8 to 10 people, and there is still a compartment under the lid to store cutlery, table cloth and napkins or even plates and small dishes.
