For over twenty years our chairs have gone underneath dining hall tables manufactured by other companies. Many of these customers have asked for our help finding durable and elegant hardwood tables. With his retirement in early 2018, former owner Fred Eustis took the time to design a line of incredible tables. By incorporating into his design the amazing advantages of the proprietary Eustis Joint® he crafted incredible commercial dining tables that will last a lifetime.
His extensive experience included working with designers of elegant dining halls all over America. No one knows better than Fred about the need for long-lasting dining tables. Finally, in our 30th year in business, we have expanded into the dining hall table market!
For over twenty years our customers had no choice but to buy tables from another manufacturer. We have worked with several of these builders to ensure our chairs and their tables created an elegant, functional space; for customers that have a preferred table manufacturer, we will continue to pair with them for your signature space.
Now, however, we can offer an alternative.
Our dining hall tables are manufactured in the same facility as our chairs; all of our products will remain American-made. Once they’re ready to ship, we will manage the delivery and set-up of both the tables and chairs; this will be reflected in one invoice, not two.
For ease of convenience in your expansion or renovation, the choice is yours!
Fred has spent decades designing hardwood chairs for dining hall and dining room customers. In these decades he has installed countless chairs under a wide variety of tables. The line Fred has created is based on his observations and expertise, focusing on simple designs that will work in a variety of dining halls. Better yet, every table will have a guaranteed service life of 20-40 years.
For many traditional dining halls, we are offering a trestle base for either a rectangular or round table. Our trestle base has a traditional elegance that doesn’t require elaborate frills. The construction, using our Eustis Joint®, is second to none. With a history spanning back to medieval times, it’s a design that has been approved by centuries of builders. Partnering such a classic with our unbeatable seating was the clear path for our future.
For those dining spaces where the trestle is not right, we offer tabletops with a variety of leg designs, matching any decor. Because of our proprietary Table Leg-Plate (TLP) joint these tables do not require aprons. We’ve noticed that table aprons – that is, the wood that juts downwards underneath the top – can require additional cleaning and increased discomfort. Our superior joinery makes the aprons redundant, while offering the dual advantage of unbeatable durability and easy table disassembly/storage.
While most trestle bases are very strong, ours go well beyond those of our competitors. Our Eustis Joint® and TLP Joint are the strongest and most cost-efficient option for dining tables nationwide. In fact, our first trestle table customer was a fraternity at a local university, who wanted our assurance the guys would be able to dance on the tables. While we cannot recommend this practice, we have no concerns whatsoever for the structural integrity of our trestle base.
Fred has spent years thinking about applying the Eustis Joint® technology to table manufacturing. He has now designed and tested a system that offers truly superior durability, just like our hardwood chairs. The key to this system is our aforementioned TLP Joint. Made with steel rods and high-strength epoxies, this makes the joint stronger than the wood itself. With this exceptional engineering, we can thus offer the same 20-year warranty on our tables that we offer on our Eustis Joint® chairs. With the plate permanently attached to the end of the table legs, the legs will remain securely attached to the top with as few as 4 bolts. This also means the tables can be easily disassembled and stored for dining halls that want that capability.
