Thanksgiving 2020: Be Prepared!

Our Process

One of our most frequently asked questions is our lead time, especially as the holidays approach. The idea for many is to have their custom-made tables delivered in time for their family holiday celebrations like, Thanksgiving 2020. As theRustic Elements Furniture - Thanksgiving Table holidays quickly approach, it’s time for our yearly reminder on what the design process looks like and how many weeks out to factor. Here’s a quick summation of the process:

  • Size. We’ll make each piece to your specs. Ensure that you’ve measured out your space accordingly. That’s the first order of business.
  • Style. Typically starting with the pedestal, whether it is a design of our own or a play-off of another, that sets the tone. Then we’ll walk through the rest of the details influencing design such as: top thickness, edge detail, distress, grooves, a cross brace, etc.
  • Color. Once we know the color/look you’re going for, we can walk you through the process of wood, their grain, and how to best achieve your desired color.
  • Seating. Finally, benches, wood chairs, and upholstered seating finish off the design process. Working with several different wood species and stain colors, the options are nearly endless.

Thanksgiving 2020 TIMELINE

For some, the process can seem as though there are endless decisions, but we often remind people that by the end, you’ve truly created the table set that will not only fit your needs, but also style. This leads us to production time. Thanksgiving 2020 will soon be upon us. Our production time is at about 15 weeks. Keep in mind, it’s best to order your table at least 15 weeks prior to your desired delivery date.

For Thanksgiving 2020, we’re nearly at the “deadline.” However, please keep in mind, it has been a very uncertain year and so we cannot guarantee delivery by certain dates, but we can promise we’ll do our best!
