Are you an empty-nester looking to downsize your dining table for you and your spouse? Or are you an entertainer, constantly hosting dinner parties and social functions in your home? Need a "kids" table for family holidays? A miniature toddler table and chairs set may be just what you are looking for! There is a wide range of table styles available to fit varied needs.

A log table is one style that satisfies the needs of both the retired couple decorating their mountain cabin and the family stuck in the city looking to bring a bit of rustic living into their home. From four foot square styles to rectangular tables that are six feet long, log tables can be purchased pre-made in a few standard styles and sizes. If you can't find a table to match your space, tastes and needs, many manufactures will custom build a table to meet your exact specifications.

Well-Crafted Table as Family Heirloom

Dining tables often hold a lot of memories for a family--Thanksgiving at Grandma's house, dinner the first night in your first home or playing Chutes and Ladders with the kids. For that reason, a treasured dining table is often handed down through the generations of a family with new stories and memories added with each passing year.

Another reason that log tables often become family heirlooms is their sturdy structure. Well-crafted log tables can withstand the wear and tear of daily life for decades. Only the highest quality logs are used in the construction of the tables. The three main types of logs used in dining tables are aspen, skip-peeled and turned lodge pole.
