Handmade Dowels and Breadboard Ends

There’s no question that breadboard ends on a dining table add a nice finished and framed in look to the completed table.

First, what is a breadboard end?  It’s a narrow piece of wood that is mechanically joined to the end of a larger panel.  In this case the table top.  It also adds a function of providing support of the panel while allowing it to shrink or expand across the grain.

Check out how we at Live Edge Vail make our own dowels made of black Walnut to match the wood species of the table.
