Tables Cabinets Chairs      

We have dining furniture designed to complement a variety of styles. Choose from simple Shaker lines, to the Asian influenced Shinto, Arts and Crafts, Mission or the graceful curve of the Savannah. Available in a generous variety of sizes and configurations, we have accent tables and dining tables and chairs to handle all of your everyday and entertaining needs. See how our fine woodworking artisans craft our handmade furniture for your dining room.

Our dining cabinets include buffets and hutches in a range of sizes, in both the Shaker and Savannah styles. When determining what size dining table you need, you should allow a minimum of 24” per place setting and a 36” clearance from the edge of the table to a wall or other obstruction.

The final detail in creating the perfect dining room is the chairs, and the lumbar supports of our dining chairs make them the most comfortable you can find. You select from several styles to complement your table. The chairs can be ordered with a Special Finish for Dining Tables.

At the request of our customers, McKinnon Furniture had been searching for a more durable finish for our dining table tops. While we have always liked the silky smooth feel of a hand rubbed oil finish, it doesn’t always offer enough protection against damage caused by the kind of use most wood dining furniture receives.

At last we have found a finish that will provide more protection, but will still have a smooth feel and allows the wood to age naturally. It is a Sherwin Williams product called KemVar, a conversion varnish that is catalyzed for a harder finish.  The finish is sprayed on and has a lustrous sheen. It is resistant to moisture, chemicals and organic solvents, and creates a much harder surface finish.

We performed some informal tests at our wood shop and found the KemVar to be quite durable. It seems to be impervious to hot tea, coffee, cola, and water left on the surface for several hours. We have put hot plates directly on the surface, and spilled food on it without apparent damage. We do not recommend this kind of abuse, of course, but it does persuade us that KemVar will be what our customers have asked for: a more lasting finish for everyday use of dining tables.

Effective June 27, 2005, the KemVar finish became the standard finish on all of our dining tables. If you would prefer an oil finish, please specify when ordering. There will be a 10% up-charge for an oil finish as well as an addtional 3 week curing time.

If you have a McKinnon dining table with an oil finish and would like the KemVar added, please let us know. The cost is $28/square-foot plus pick-up & delivery charges. You can expect to be without your table for two to three weeks. To make arrangements, please contact the woodshop (Monday - Friday  253-852-0274) or e-mail

We are continually trying to improve our products and processes. We appreciate the feedback we receive from customers and hope you will continue to let us know how we can make our furniture work better for you.


"We love our buffet. It's just the right size and its lines are clean and classic... timeless!"
