"The trestle table that was built for us by HD Threshing truly exceeded our expectations. We were looking for something rustic but sophisticated that would fit with a more modern decor and this table was perfect. Owner Gerald Reinink helped us choose a style and material that worked for us, and he sent us pictures of the table during construction. Our only challenge is finding chairs that are worthy of this unique piece."
- Wayne Gahagan, Oakville
"My wife and I were looking for a custom table for our newly renovated kitchen. It is a simple home but we love it, and the table was a key ingredient that would finish off the renovation. I found Hdthreshing floor on the web and called for the appointment with Gerald. He was truly approachable, honest, informative and had good suggestions. We were able to make a choice of table and chairs to suit. The delivery was a bit better than we expected and once in the room, we fell in love with the character and charm that the table brought. It is so strong, unique, beautiful and the size fit perfectly. It will be a heirloom to fight over. Good job to all involved in the build of our trestle table."
- Ron and Pauline Oegema, St. Catherines

"Gerald, I just wanted to drop you note to say that we have received a ton of compliments on the new table. It looks great and we are really happy with it. My kitchen designer loved it so much that she asked for your business info (which I gladly passed along). Hopefully, that will materialize into some orders for you. Thanks again for the great work."
- Mark Pallotta, Oakville
"Hi Gerald, Thank you for designing and building such a beautiful Dining Room table for us. This amazing piece is the centerpiece of our home and we are getting great compliments from all of our friends on your custom made furniture. You delivered it on time and it was a pleasure to work with you and receive updates all along the way. Your service and attention to detail from start to finish is remarkable. Thank you once again."
- Paul and Phyllis Bordo, Haliburton
"We have incorporated several of Gerald's tables throughout the new Landmark, Cambridge Mill property. The look, feel and finish are in keeping with the high degree of quality and craftsmanship that we put in to our facilities and products. Gerald is a pleasure to work with, a committed professional and always delivered a quality product on time. We intend to outfit other new Landmark properties with Gerald's unique tables and furnishings."
- Matthew Opferkuch, Director of Operations, Landmark Group
"We are beyond happy with the table and chairs we had made by HD Threshing. Gerald was so easy to work with, which made the whole process problem-free. Everything was done by internet and phone calls, without seeing any sample products. We put our trust in Gerald and we were not disappointed. Our trestle table and chairs are a highlight for visitors to our cottage. All the chairs are very comfortable and the table is extremely durable. It was even more spectacular in person than we anticipated. Kudos to HD Threshing for providing high quality products with fabulous workmanship. These pieces will last forever."
- Wendy and Jim Barney, Havelock
"I was looking for something to complete my condo on Lake Ontario. I had sunk a lot of time and effort into making the condo beautiful; even committing substantial amounts of my own time to make it right. The reclaimed wood table I got from HD Threshing Floor Furniture achieved exactly this. Gerald and his crew got the table up the service elevator (no easy task) and assembled on-site. I am very pleased with the final look, quality, practicality, feel and how it stands out as a centrepiece in my tropical design. Thanks."
- Jim Andreatta, Spring Creek
"Hi Gerald, The cabinet looks great, very happy with it! We were searching for a custom, rustic and unique looking entertainment cabinet for our newly renovated basement. HD definitely delivered what we were after. From working with our initial sketch to the final delivery of the cabinet HD supplied a great service. Thanks Gerald and team for the excellent job!" ”
- Chris and Michelle, Kitchener
"We purchased a 12-foot table from HD Threshing for our office board room a few years ago. It still looks as great as it did when it was first delivered and continues to be a conversation piece for our visitors. I was so happy with the table that my wife and I recently purchased one for our dining room. Once we decided on the size, legs and finish, Gerald took care of the rest. Within 2-3 weeks, we were sent pictures of our table in production. The finished product was delivered just 2 weeks after that. It was exactly as we specified and has met our expectations in every way."
- Dr. G. Leung, Mississauga, ON
"We were looking for something totally original for our dining room. We came across HD Threshing on the internet and set up an appointment to go visit the showroom. We were absolutely delighted with what we saw and ordered a beautiful round dining room table and a side serving table. Once ordered Gerald sent us pictures of our furniture so we were able to watch the building process. He delivered the tables to us and we could not be happier. They are absolutely beautiful and original and we could not be more pleased with our choice. Thanks again Gerald."
- Cindy and Bob Yrjola, Sault Ste. Marie, ON
"My sister an I found Gerald"s company and his amazing tables. We wanted one and being cautious we checked out all the other companies around doing the same type of product. Gerald has the most professional operation and his product is far superior. We ordered our table and it was ready earlier than expected. We weren't ready for it and Gerald kept it until we were ready. Friday our new table arrived. It is wonderful and is going to really enhance our home. We will be going back to Gerald for a coffee table in the future. We highly recommend Gerald and his wonderful work."
- Denise and Christina Eden, Georgetown, ON
"Our brand new trestle table from HD Threshing was delivered last week and we could not be more thrilled! The entire process was exceptionally easy from picking the style and colour of the table to organizing delivery. Gerald was an absolute pleasure to work with, he even sent us pictures of our unfinished table during the process. Their pricing is very competitive and definitely worth every penny!"
- Jennifer Apple, Toronto, ON
"My husband and I are extremely pleased with our table by HD Threshing. Gerald was informative and easy to work with. The service was streamlined from our initial meeting and choosing of design to the delivery of the table. We couldn't be happier with the quality--the table is now the showpiece of our dining room. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerald and HD Threshing."
- Liane Wansbrough, Toronto, ON
"Everyone who walks into our country kitchen immediately drools over the magnificent “Cooper’s Creek” harvest table you made for us! We absolutely love the character and uniqueness of the wood, it’s perfect. You were a pleasure to deal with and went the extra mile to deliver and install it when our plans fell through to pick it up ourselves. Thanks again for a wonderful table-shopping experience. I only hesitate to recommend you to all our friends because I don’t want anyone else to have a table like ours!!"
- Ginette and Bob Randall, Woodstock, ON
"Margaret and I are very pleased with the table. You have a great product. It was great that we were able to choose a design that worked for us. The best part is that we have a fabulous dining table that is one of a kind!"
- Darryl Knetchtel, Hamilton, ON
"We recently received our HDThreshing Harvest table. It not only lived up to our expectations but exceeded them! How often does that happen? We were extremely pleased with the way you (Gerry) were helpful and patient along the way as we e-mailed back and forth decideing on size, style and finish. The custom option allowed for a narrow table that fit our dining space perfectly. The chairs all slide under without wasting table space and with the 2 extensions we were able to seat 12 people comfortably for Xmasdinner! The natural tones in the distressed wood compliment but don't compete with our existing furniture. It truly is the last table we will ever need to buy! Thankyou!"
- Marcia Brazel, Hamilton, ON
"Gerald: My wife and I would like to thank you for the professional way you handled our needs while we were searching for an exceptional dining room table for our new home in Muskoka. Before we arrived at HD Threshing, we had seen a variety of 'barn board' dining room tables, but until we saw your product, we didn't realize the differences in quality available between your company and other sources we had seen. Your tables far surpassed the inferior imitations we had seen elsewhere. Once you showed us your process to 'build' the table from scratch, there was no question where we would be doing our shopping. Choosing our colour and grain, with your expertise, was simple, because with your experience, you knew exactly what we needed and wanted. I still remember you delivering the table, while I held my breath, hoping that the finished product would match our expectations, and as I recall, when you turned the table over, I choked up because that was just how perfect our table was. So again, many thanks for all your advice and help in our choosing the absolutely PERFECT table."
- Jack and Sharon Penaligon, Muskoka, ON
"Gerald.. I wanted to thank you for doing this beautiful Island top for us. We have had many compliments and have recommended you to several people. Thank you! It is absolutely beautiful!"
-Laura Banks, Burlington, ON
"I purchased a 'Harvest table' from HD, and I can honestly say that I'm so impressed. Not only with the table (it's beautiful) but the service. Gerald was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I had requested the table to be completed by a certain time and it was. The table is one of a kind; I chose the size, colour and style. Very happy with my purchase. Excellent Job HD!"
-Helena Laguardia, Toronto, ON
"Hi Gerald, Just wanted to thank you for the great work you did both on the 2 tables for Keswick, as well as the island top for Toronto!They look really spectacular, even better than I expected. The island top is amazing!!!Looking forward to using you again soon, Thanks"
-Judy Petersiel, Toronto, ON
"Hi Gerald - David and I and our entire family want you to know that we absolutely love the table you delivered to our Lake of Bays home. The wood grain and the finish are beautiful, we can seat a crowd comfortably, and it looks great in our dining room. I particulary like how you can see the depth and uneven places of the wood, but you can see right 'into' the wood through the finish. We are having ongoing discussions about the wood - Thank you very much - we so appreciate your craftmanship and service. Regards"
-David and Ellen Clark, Toronto, ON
"Our visit to HD Threshing Floor Furniture on a Saturday morning was delightful. The owner, Gerald Reinink talked us through all the options for a new table and showed infinite patience as we debated the exact size and style. His advice was excellent and we settled on a 12 foot table in hemlock with a customised glossy finish. Gerald kept in touch as the table was constructed and sent us photos as well as a sample of the finish for a final decision. The table was duly delivered and installed perfectly. The result was truly spectacular .. a fantastic level of craftsmanship and faultlessly assembled. The combination of reclaimed timber and a thick resin sheen makes Gerald's tables the best we've been able to find in Canada.. and as a design professor I am very picky!"
-Professor Tom Barker, Toronto, MSt IDBE (Cantab), MDes(Eng), BSc(Hons), FRCA, FRSA Royal Commission of 1851 Design Fellow Chair of The Digital Futures Initiative (DFI) OCAD University Toronto Canada
"As a consumer, the greatest challenge lies in finding a company whose ideals match your own in terms of product quality, sustainable practices, and customer service. Gerald and his team at HD Threshing are leaders in both the quality of their work, but also in the individualized customer care that they provide. Each step of the process, from initial inquiry to showroom visit, email correspondence and delivery, we were impressed equally by the unmatched quality of the furniture and also the personalized and friendly customer service. There is no question that we will return to HD Threshing for future furniture purchases - we couldn't be happier!"
-Melanie and Marc Marlin, Hamilton, ON
"As collectors of early Canadian antiques, my husband and I wanted a dining room table that would fit with the style of our decor, but also withstand the rigors of life with 2 boys. Gerald's tables have the rustic look of old wood, but with the durability of rock from the epoxy coating. Gerald was very patient as we changed dimensions several times, and came to our house to show us samples of the wood. The finished product is better than I could have hoped for - it looks fabulous in the space and has so much character."
-Pam and Matt Denton, Toronto, ON
"We came to HD with a vision of a barn style table that would suit our family, with gentle guidance and helpful information we were provided with a beautiful design. HD delivered our table with smiles and courtesy, we could not be more pleased with their attention to detail and level of professionalism. We are looking forward to making many memories shared with loved ones around this new beautiful barn style table. Thank you HD for everything!"
-Paul and Christine Martz, Cambridge, ON
"We were absolutely thrilled with the table and bench that HD Threshing Floor Furnishing built for us! They are beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. The staff were great at understanding our needs and were very pleasant to work with. We never would have thought that ordering a custom table and bench could have been so easy! Thank you"
-Jennifer Faraone, Toronto, ON
"For a few years my husband and I had discussed wanting to get a unique dining room table for our family cottage. When we came across the HD Threshing website we knew we had found the table for us. Gerald was helpful, professional and very knowledgeable, he made our decision very easy. Our table is so beautiful and we will be proud to have it as part of our cottage for years to come. "
-Kostas and Carolyn Toufexis, Toronto, ON
"Gerald - our table is beautiful and it really completes our kitchen. We had been looking for a suitably stylish, rustic table after a two month reno of our new house and we'd seen examples of both expensive and cheap rubbish. Then we found your website and arranged a visit to your showroom. Within minutes of entering the showroom - we knew we had to have one of your tables - I think it was the combination of the wonderfully smooth, hardwearing finish, the marvellous detail of the unique, antique timber and the obvious craftsmanship that went into the tables. We paid our deposit, decided on a more rustic look and chose the style of legs and went home thrilled that we had decided on paying a little bit more for something really special. This was not an instant gratification purchase - we were having something hand made specially for us. I loved that you sent us photos of the unfinished table, and had complete faith that once it was finished, it would be darker than the photos. Delivery was scheduled for 10 days later and our table was assembled in the kitchen - where it really looks lovely. I can't stop touching it - it feels amazing - yet you can still see the detail of the knot holes, cracks and tooling marks deep under the finish - and yes it is darker than the photos. Dealing with HD was really simple, and very pleasant - we chose what we wanted - and it turned up a few weeks later - expectations fully met! Given the chance I would do it all again - but it looks that the table is going to last for a very long time. Thank you very much"
-Philip Quirk, Oakville, ON
"I recently took possession of a 10 foot trestle table with matching benches and I am extremely pleased. The pieces are solid, substantial and attractive, and have generated many complements from guests. The table is the foundation that will guide all future decorative changes in my cottage. The table was delivered on time, by Gerald (a nice touch), and set up quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend HD Threshing and plan on doing business with them again in the future."
-Glen Cameron, Wasaga Beach, ON
"While planning our main floor renovation, including tearing down a supporting wall, installing a beam, a new kitchen and new floors, we started to look at replacing our dining room table. I fell in love with reclaimed wood tables and began my search for the perfectly crafted addition we would soon make to our home. Having two young children and a large extended family meant that we required a large table, capable of seating many family members as well as being solid and durable all while fitting into our new space. I found HD Threshing and immediately contacted Gerald to start the process as his product seemed to fit what we wanted. His responses were timely and included all the necessary information that we needed to make our choice: a 7ft trestle table with two 18 inch leaves. I was able to drive to Cambridge to visit the showroom a few weeks after I had placed my order and seeing the tables in person confirmed what I suspected - they were stunning and even more impressive in person than on the web! Gerald promised pictures when the contruction began and us delivery before Thanksgiving. True to his word, he sent us pictures of our 7 foot trestle table while it was being built and it was delievered the Thursday prior to the long weekend. Everyone who sees it can't take their eyes off this finely crafted piece of furniture and the finish lends itself to repeated touching and closer inspection. This table will be in our home for a very, very long time and will surely be passed on through the family. We're thrilled to have it and will enjoy using it every day with our growing children." "
-Nathalie Fournier and Heath Crichton, Peterborough, ON
"We recently purchased a table from HD Threshing Floor Furniture. It's a 7 foot long table with an inlay at one end. We had some design changes we wanted from the standard table model. Gerald gave us good advice and was able to accommodate our requests. We had a several month wait for our table, so I appreciated the regular updates (including photos) of the progress being made. The table was completed and delivered in the quoted timeframe. HD Threshing Floor Furniture was fantastic to work with. Our table is amazing and exactly what we had in mind. We are so proud to display it in our home. All our guests have commented on how beautiful it is. We are so happy that we chose to invest in this piece of heirloom furniture. Thanks, Gerald and your team! Please feel free to edit or change this if you like. And thanks again for making us such a beautiful piece of furniture. We love it!"
-Theresa, Toronto, ON
"Hello Gerald, Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the beautiful table! It was so very kind of you to go out of your way to get it here early enough for the event. We are so happy with the final product, it's nicer than I imagined. Thank you so much!"
-Julie, Sean and Grayson Howlett, Toronto, ON
"Shortly after moving into our new home, I did an internet search for rustic, wood dining tables. In the results was a link to HD Threshing Floor Furniture. As I clicked through the photos on their site, I knew that I had found a company that not only understood quality furniture design (from reclaimed wood nonetheless - how great is that!), but also had very reasonable prices. Even though I could have easily ordered directly from the website, I was happy to discover that HD Threshing was only a thirty minute drive from our house. We therefore decided to visit their showroom. The furniture on display was as stunning in person as in the photos on their site. We spoke with HD Threshing about various options in terms of style, size and finish. Within fifteen minutes, we had decided on exactly what we wanted and placed our order. The process was personal, simple and satisfying. The table, and the matching bench that we ordered after the fact, were delivered on time. That following weekend, we had twelve guests join us for a large family meal. Everyone raved about the table, from how gorgeous it looks to the provenance of the material used to build it. Every visitor to our home tells us what we already know - that the table is a beautiful showpiece that has transformed our dining space."
-Bob Munroe, Ancaster, ON
"We commissioned HD Threshing Floor Furniture for a 14 ft. Dining table and cabinet for our cottage. Mr. Reinink was extremely accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. Given his knowledge of reclaimed wood we were able to design a unique and exquisite piece of furniture. When we received the pieces we were ecstatic. The coloring, design and finish were above our expectations. We received continuous progress of its manufacture and delivery was as promised. We can only provide glowing accolades of our interactions,honesty and timeliness. The results far exceed our expectation"
-Sheldon Kovensky, Fenelon Falls, ON
"We searched all over the internet for a unique kitchen table for our new home. While we found others with similar ideas in and around the Toronto area, HD Threshing was by far the more superior in both product and pricing. We were able to customize the table to our exact size and the personality that we wanted it to have. The table is truly a piece of art and the compliments we have received are staggering. The chairs are exactly as we requested and comfortable too. Thank-you Gerald for your superb customer service and I have been recommending HD Threshing to anyone who will listen."
-Liszz Palmer, Barrie, ON
"We found HD Threshing Floor Furniture on the web while looking for trestle tables for our newly renovated home in the Thousand Islands on the St Lawrence River. We were looking for an antique piece, originally, which would render a beautiful contrast with our modern open concept home design which featured the natural beauty of the expansive views of the river. Instead, we found the natural beauty of HD Threshing Floor’s wood, preserved in an epoxy which rendered the piece practical to serve on and comfortable to sit at, spending hours in conversation. That result, in combination with the affordable pricing for our unique 7 foot table, and the ease of dealing with Gerald and his organization, made the buying experience very pleasant. Even better when Gerald agreed to sit down with me and have a glass of wine while watching how his piece fit into its new surroundings, and how those surroundings fit against the backdrop of the mighty St Lawrence River."
-Richard Boadway, Brockville, ON
"We are absolutely thrilled with our dinning table from HD Threshings. It is exactly what was promised in regards to colour and finish however the finished product definitely exceeded our expectations - stunning! HD Threshing were easy to work with and very accomidating. We required the table for an event we were hosting at our house and they went out of their way to ensure the table made it in time - including driving it to Toronto at 7am to ensure it was there before the event. We hope to be a returning customer in the near future."
-Julie Howlett, Toronto, ON
"As an Architect I have been trained to appreciate and scrutinize workmanship and design and there is no question that the table and chairs we received from HD Threshing and Martin’s are of the highest level in both categories. We just purchased a new home in which the dining area was central to the layout of the main floor and we needed a great dining room table that would function well for our immediate and extended family, be well designed and last for many years - our expectations were met and we are extremely satisfied; I can honestly say this will be the last dining room table and chair set I ever buy."
-Settimo Vilardi, M.Arch, OAA, LEED AP® BD+C, ARCHON ARCHITECT INCORPORATED, Windsor, ON
"I would like to express my satisfaction with Gerald’s great work. We were expecting a beautiful dining room table, but what we received from HD was a truly masterpiece. He did exactly what we wanted and beyond. Quality of our harvest table was astonishing. We have received so many compliments for something that will be displayed in our home for long, long time. Dealing with Gerald was very easy, and his service was very professional. No doubt he is going to make a name for his business very soon. I was looking for similar product for long time, and nothing was comparable to his work. Simply brilliant."
-Savo Knezevic, Toronto, ON
"Thanks, Gerald! We love our table, which is the first topic at almost every meeting. I'm so impressed with how easy you made it for us to communicate with you long distance, and in the promised time, you delivered exactly the unique boardroom showpiece we imagined. I especially appreciate that you were always available to answer our questions and extra requests and keep us in the loop through the whole process. We’re happy to tell our clients and friends about you and about the story of the wood that you used. I’ve attached a photo of our table in our boardroom."
-Debbie Dresen, jiffy lube, Edmonton, AB
"Hi Gerald. I just want to thank you so much for the gorgeous chairs. I love them. They are so perfect with my table. You did an amazing job. And thank you for going out of your way to deliver them and a second trip to bring the leg back. "
