Haven Nurtured for 26 Years

Twenty-six years ago, Nigel Caigou stood in the living room of this charming Stanley Point villa and thought to himself, "yes, we'll buy this place".

The owner was intent on selling her long-time home to a family, so Nigel made sure to get his wife Anne, and their then preschool-aged children over for a viewing.

Two days later, it was theirs. The Caigous had recently moved to Auckland and were intent on buying a heritage home.

"It had to be quiet, private and sunny," Nigel says. "You could get some of those things on the other side of the harbour bridge, but you couldn't get quiet as everything seemed to be a couple of streets away from a main road."

He hadn't heard of Stanley Point before and was delighted this house met all the criteria, as it was "on a dead-end street, off a dead-end street". When the family moved in there was a picket fence, but no gate. Nigel wanted to put a gate in to keep children Chris, now 29 and Rachael, 27, safe. But he soon realised there was no need.

"Because there's no through-traffic, it's really safe. As preschoolers, the kids could wander out and meet other young kids."

Nigel's been known to stand in the middle of the road himself over the years, having beers and nattering to neighbours who have become friends. It's a great community, with many locals getting to know each other as they catch the Stanley Bay ferry to the city.

Nigel describes their double garage on the road-front, with its higher-than-usual stud height and room to store windsurfers and other sports gear, as his "centre of activity".

The deck that occupies the northern side of the house is "the centre of social activities".

The Caigous like to entertain. In summer, they pass food from the kitchen to the deck and its outdoor dining table. In winter, and at the end of the day, they can relax in the elegant separate living room, where Nigel first vowed to buy this home.

They've made improvements over the years, all in keeping with the heritage style they love and respect. Nigel and Anne both believe in no half measures.

"Wait until you can afford to buy the best and then look after it," Nigel says.

You can see this philosophy throughout their home, from the "big and grunty" central heating system to the 900mm Ilve cooker in the kitchen and the quality of the tiles in the home's three bathrooms.

The couple commissioned colour expert Peta Tearle to design a timeless scheme for the house and Nigel sings the praises of their builder, Graeme Hutchison.

The Caigous have carefully sourced original period lights, including a spectacular porcelain pendant over the dining table and Moroccan lamps in the hall.

Two of the bedrooms have en suites and open through French doors to the deck. Anne uses the fourth bedroom as her office for her work as an occupational therapist.

The main bedroom looks out over the return veranda to the formal front garden and its fountain. Several years ago, the Caigous replaced the picket fence with one that affords them more privacy.

At the rear of the section is the couple's magnificent potager garden and citrus grove. "Last year we got 6kg of cherry tomatoes from just two plants," Nigel says with pride.

Recently Chris told his father how lucky he felt to grow up in such a great spot, so close to the water. Now, with the kids gone from home, Nigel and Anne are looking for a place for the two of them.

How Do I Get the White Stain From Water Off of My Wood Dining Table?
How Do I Get the White Stain From Water Off of My Wood Dining Table?
If this is a genuine wood taple top, and not a laminate, then the 'stain' is actually excess moisture in the finish... and its pretty easy to take care of... Just take a hair dryer, and on low heat setting, gently wave it back and forth over the 'stain'. The heat will cause the excess moisture in the finish to evaporate. Do not let the blow dryer remain blowing at one area too long, or it will soften the finish. There are chemicals you could use to work on this stain, but Ive found the hair dryer to work pretty well... I can normally have a stain like this out, in a matter of minutes. Hehhe... just be careful not to touch the surface til after it has cooled! Good Luck!1. Should I get rid of dining table?So where would you sit to eat?

From that day onwards we sit at the dinner table every night.4. Building a large dining table and wondering if my design is strong/structurally sound enoughThe main thing that I can see (apart from the bracing being a bit overkill) is that you probably want some small braces at the top of the legs where they meet the apron / top, in order to stop sideways wobble.A bridle (not bridal) joint for the legs is probably a good choice of joint, but if you want this table to last for years and years then some side bracing of the legs would not go amiss5.

How do I train my cat to not get on the dining table?there kittens theyll do that till the older7. How can I go about making a simple dining table?The white rings are damage to the varnish. You could try stripping the varnish, and either waxing the table and leaving it unvarnished, or re-varnishing. Polish is a suface treatment. Modern polishes often contain silicone to give that slick, "clean" feeling and a very brilliant shine. Wax has to be applied to the untreated surface and worked in to give a deep glow to the wood itself. Stain is what it says: a permanent colour. You can take a cheap pine or deal table and apply a dark "walnut" stain to make the wood look like something it's not. But stain by itself wo not shine. Varnish seals the surface, giving a glassy finish and protecting the wood somewhat. But it wo not defend the wood from scratches, abuse (now called "distress") or heat. Putting a hot container on a varnished surface "shocks" the varnish and causes the white marks--like when you get a blister from a burn and the skin turns white.8. What do you have as a center piece on your dining table?A large cream colored candle sitting on top of a square mirror... very pretty when lit9. i just bought a brand new solid oak dining table from a reputable, european family owned business....?That condition you describe sounds very much like the wood is swelling from moisture. Has anyone spilled something that was not wiped up and seeped into the surface? Do you live in a place with high humidity? Try placing a heavy item on the raised place for a few days and see if it will flatten out. If the company is reputable, you were not ripped off. If the wood has warped, it is because of the conditions in your home. Best wishes10.

Cake Stands - the Perfect Fusion of Dining Table and Dining Table
For more how to guides and tips head to Wood Review TV or checkout www.woodreview.com.auFor this table I wanted to showcase a beautiful, honey coloured piece of macrocarpa on a contrasting black minimalist base. I was hoping to create a 'floating in space' look. I like tables that have just a leg at each corner, without a low under-structure that can get in the way of people's feet and legs when they're seated. For this reason the base is of a conventional design.I relocated to Auckland, New Zealand from Perth around three years ago. I had and now have another small workshop and I've had to give consideration how to make the most of the space I had. I've written in AWR previously about the 'space-saving' workbench and machine stands I designed and built. I don't have room or the need for large machines, but it is possible to still make larger items by outsourcing some processes.Frame jointsMortise and tenon is the traditional choice for rail to leg constructions. Without a hollow chisel mortiser or the desire to handcut these joints I opted to use a domino tool and make the frame with loose tenon joints. There are other ways to effect loose tenons, however the domino tool proved highly effective as it took me only an hour to cut the 64 mortises required.Most table rails are around 90 x 25mm in size. To achieve adequate strength using domino joints I increased the rail thickness to 50mm so four dominos could be used for each joint. This also increased the gluing surface to further strengthen a frame that now supports a 2250mm long top. The tenons need to be spaced at least 20mm and 10mm apart. The legs are 90 x 90mm with 3mm corner radii and the aprons are 4mm offset from the outer face of the legs.Top treatmentThe macrocarpa slab needed to have the bark removed and the edge cleaned up. Local Titirangi carver Kim Carati crafted a smooth and sculptural edge.I'm no expert with winding sticks and a smoothing plane and I definitely didn't want the platter rocking as the Christams turkey was carved, so it was off to a nearby cabinetmaker who put the slab through his Powermax thicknesser two or three times.Fortunately the rough sawn slab was not warped or twisted which made this easy. This machine has a spiral cutterhead followed by two oscillating sanding drums that finished the slab to 180 grit. Back in the workshop I ran over the surface with my random orbital sander at 240 grit.A dining table needs a durable finish and I also wanted a glossy look which I was not confident of producing. And so I was off again, this time to the local furniture spray finishing service that has controlled environments for spraying and drying finishes to ensure an even, mirror finish.Sixteen custom made buttons secured the top to slots cut into the base aprons, positioned to allow movement.Cutting ListTop 2250 x 900 x 50 Legs 4@ 712 x 90 x 90 Rails 2@ 1800 x 105 x 50, 2@ 520 x 105 x 90For more how to guides and tips head to Wood Review TV or checkout www.woodreview.com.au
Dining Table Plans for Your Restaurant
Dining Table Plans for Your Restaurant
Consider the time you spend at tables throughout a typical day. If you're like most people, you'll probably spend most of your waking hours behind one kind of table or another. There's kitchen tables at breakfast, work tables during the day punctuated by a break at a lunch table, then back home to our kitchen and dining tables, followed by some "quality" time in front of our TVs and coffee tables. If, like myself, you do not watch TV, then you might spend time at another work table (the desk) or back to the kitchen table for some tea and a good book. For most kids, it's the same thing except their desks are known as school tables.Tables have taken over modern life, and this is as true of those who like antique tables as it is of those who like modern tables. Everywhere we go, we put ourselves behind a table. It stands to reason, therefore, that we should have nice tables at home. Spending countless hours with an ugly table is bound to take a toll on your frame of mind, especially if the table is not well designed. What we want are good tables that are easy to use and nice to look at. And that doesn't mean we have to get really expensive tables, either. Some of the best tables are the simple ones. We don't get tired of looking at them as we would with a "novel" design that grows stale, and there's less to break on them! large wooden tables are the choice for large groups to congregate for a meeting of minds. If the table be round, so much the better, as evidenced by tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Although these are most often encountered in the form of banquet tables, they can also make good alternatives to formal dining sets. Formal dining sets tend to be fairly serious looking, dark, and perhaps fancy. Those are qualities that many people do not hold in high regard. Why not get a country style large table to serve as the dining table These tables offer the surface area needed to accommodate larger numbers of people, as for family and holiday gatherings, but are unpretentious and can even be cheerful looking. What they lack in refined design, rustic tables make up for in thickness and honesty of design. You could hardly ask for more, especially if good food and merry times are your priority.
How a Dining Table Can Add a Touch of Elegance to Your Restaurant
How a Dining Table Can Add a Touch of Elegance to Your Restaurant
01/13How each zodiac sign eatsA lot of us think zodiacs are cock and bull stories. But odds are that we still sneak in a copy of a zodiac blog and read what our zodiac sign says. Not just ours, in fact, we may also browse through our friend’s, our crush’s, and friend’s crush’s signs. And more often than not, we end up saying, ‘Oh, that’s so true!’. There’s no denying the fact that zodiac signs can offer us an insight into our habits, and also our dietary habits. Your being an Arian can help understand your love for hot and spicy food, while your Cancerian traits can give reason to your culinary interests. Here we take a look into what each zodiac sign’s food habits are like.02/13Aries: Eat slow and cleanArians like everything fast and spontaneous. They do not like to waste their time in long meals and so they have a preference for easy to make and microwavable foods. They are also known to have a weakness for food that is spicy, hot and energizing. If you do not have a palate for spicy foods, you may not be a big fan of Arians’ meals. They need to eat slow and clean to steer clear of various health diseases.03/13Taurus: Separate food and emotionsTaureans have a tendency to be binge eaters. The biggest share of their love for food is devoted to sweets, pastas and breads. They can often get onto an eating spree if they are drowned by their emotions. This can make them more prone to weight gain issues, so they need to disconnect these two. Also, they do not like being disturbed while they are gorging on their food. They prefer their meals on a comfortable dining table.04/13Gemini: Make an eating routineGeminis are known to be the least bothered about what they consume. They are more concerned about having a good company and an interesting conversation during a meal than the meal itself. This can make them easily skip their meals and simply forget that they missed one. But one thing that they need is variety. They do not like same and boring meals. So, the thing that you are sure to find in their kitchen is variety.05/13Cancer: Control your nervous culinary hedonismCancerians are known for their culinary skills. They are the ones who buy the most expensive and quality food. They are also known for eating till they lose their breath, specially when they are nervous and frightened. This could lead them into an eating spree, much comparable to a culinary hedonism. Control your nervous culinary hedonism to stay in the pink of your health.06/13Leo: Better your nutritional consumptionNot much fond of cooking themselves, Leos still have a big appetite for food. They are the ones who like dining at expensive restaurants, with good company of people. Though they may eat a lot but their nutritional requirements may not get fulfilled by what they eat. They need to consume more of vegetables and fruits to fulfil their nutritional needs.07/13Virgo: Stay on a lighter dietVirgos are known to be the only sign that can actually be on a diet without feeling the urge to cheat because their diet is very important to them and they believe in doing everything perfectly. They have a love for organic food and can make magic with their cooking skills. They do not care about the price of the groceries if that is what gives them better taste and nutrition. They may have a slower metabolism, making them choose food that is light on the stomach.08/13Libra: Control your love for sweetsLibrans are infamous for their sweet tooth. They prefer having smaller portions of everything else – salads, starters, and main course – but when it comes to the dessert after a meal, that’s what their minds are at. They also like fancy liquor and a cozy, comfortable environment while dining. They need to take care of their love for sweets if they want to avoid the repercussions.09/13Scorpio: Avoid junk, increase water intakeThis sign has a palate for spicy foods which they can crave for at any time of the day, be it at 3 in night. Scorpions, as a sign, deal with extremes – all or nothing. They may consume large quantities at once and may not have anything for six straight hours. They need to have more water as they can easily forget to sip some throughout the day.10/13Sagittarius: Do not overeat, over drinkSagittarians have a love for experimenting. They love exotic delicacies and can also have spicy food. One thing that they do quite often is gorge on a lot of food at once and skip the next five meals. Besides overeating, they can also indulge in over drinking and this can lead to several health problems for them, such as digestive problems and obesity.
What to Do If Your Dining Table Is too Low
If your dining room table is too low, it can be very uncomfortable. Maybe your knees hit the table when you sit or you find yourself bending down to pick things up from the table. Perhaps it does not fit well with the other decorations in the room. Whatever the reason, there are several simple fixes to this.You can raise your dining room table from the bottom by adding lifts, feet, or replacement legs. Any of these options will raise your dining table, preventing you from needing to purchase a new, taller one.Read on to find out which of these fixes works best for you and will help make your dining room table perfect for however you want to use it.Pre-purchased table leg extenders already exist, and it may be the easiest option for you to purchase them. If you are looking to purchase lifts for your table, you will be able to chooseLifts come in many types of material. You can choose one based on several factors, such as matching the original table and sturdiness. If your table is small, you may worry less about how sturdy the lifts are and focus more on a matching aesthetic. If you are going to use it to hold heavy items, however, you want to make sure you are creating a strong dining room table.The two most common options are plastic and wood for the lifts. If you have a wood table, you could get a set of wooden lifts that fit perfectly to your table's legs. If your table legs are made of any other material, it may be easier for you to choose plastic. You can find a set of four in varying styles. This is definitely one of the most affordable options.Lifts are quick and easy to use, but they do not generally provide a lot of height for your table. They are good if you want to raise it slightly, or if one of the legs is uneven and you want to prevent the table from rocking under heavy weight, but they are less useful if you want to make a significant change to the height of your dining room table. If you are trying to raise it more than a few inches, this may not be the best route.Similar to choosing material, you are able to choose the color of your table lifts. This is a nice option if the legs of your table are going to be exposed or you would prefer everything to match, regardless of who is going to see it. There are simple black risers that fit along the outside of each foot, are unlikely to damage the floor your table is sitting on, and do not draw attention if someone happens to be walking by.Some lifts have designs on them while others are meant to blend in with the rest of the table. Some of the designs include tapering shapes, engravings, and fun colors. If you use your dining room table to host guests and want to give it a boost without looking like you made a quick fix, there are some tasteful options to choose from. It may even look like you chose the lifts for decoration instead of practicality.Adding Feet and Legs to Raise Your Dining TableIf you want to add something directly to your table legs but think the lifts are unattractive, adding feet and legs is a great option to consider. This is a little more complicated than using risers, but it is helpful to considerTable feet are available in many materials, but it is easiest to install them on metal tables. The most common and affordable types available are wooden legs, plastic tubes, and metal poles. Because these attach directly onto the table instead of resting directly underneath it for lift, the different materials have different options for how to install them.Wooden legs are the most common to add on to with wooden extenders or feet. When you do that, you will typically be able to find a wood that matches what the current table leg is already using. If you are adding metal onto a leg, it will likely be noticeable that you made a repair at home.Adding legs and feet to a table is more effective than risers in increasing the height of the table dramatically. You can add inches of height without creating extreme instability if you are cautious about the installation. Generally, the height difference created from the legs is enough to improve the use of the table without ruining the stability and making it a riskier choice.Leg installation is not extremely complicated, but it is more difficult than adding risers. You do not have to be an expert at home repairs to add additional height to your table's current legs, but it is helpful if you already have some materials at home to build upon. Usually, they are installed by drilling into the current legs, but some people prefer to use a strong glue or other adhesive.Add New Legs to Your Dining TableIf you hate the current short legs for your table and want to replace them entirely, it may be best to buy or make new legs that can be directly installed on the table shelf. If you are thinking about this option, be sure to considerStarting over on the appearance of your dining room table can be great motivation to get entirely new legs. If your current legs are unattractive, do not match the aesthetic of the room, or are a material that you think looks bad for the dining room, you can find new ones. If you are choosing new legs, you can pick simple or elegant, engraved or plain, color and material to fit your needs. It can almost be like getting a new table.While you are picking new legs to increase height to your table, you can also factor in how strong you want the table to be. If you are currently concerned that your dining room table might not hold up the weight that is being put on it, you can choose legs made from stronger material to provide additional support. If you feel like your current legs are unnecessarily strong and bulky, you can choose something more subtle.Some legs are more expensive than others, and you have the freedom to craft your own budget if you are making new legs. If you have some crafting skills and happen to have materials lying about your house, you may even be able to create a new pair at no cost. If you are not sure how to do this, you can buy new legs online or at a home improvement store for just slightly more than the cost of risers.Overall, if your dining room table is too low, you have many options to choose from so you can keep the table. You can insert risers below it, add extensions to the legs, or create altogether new legs to give your table the boost you would like.These options vary in cost and purpose, with different levels of change occurring to the table depending on what you need. Be sure to consider how high you would like your dining room table to be, and what you want it to look like, before choosing which alteration you are going to make.Anyone know of a GREAT solution to remove pet urine odor absorbed into wooden leg of end table?I would like to know the answer to that, being I saw my cat today, pee in the corner
