How to commission bespoke table?


STEP 1 – CHOOSE YOUR WOOD TOP

Single-plank wooden tops, also known as Wood Slab Table Tops

Slab tables (LIVE EDGE TABLES OR SQUARE EDGE TABLES) are the crème da la crème of dining furniture. In the simplest of terms, they are super-size planks. This oversimplified definition however, does the wood slabs justice. The demand for such exclusive, statement pieces is extremely high. Not a single joint can be found on our slab wood tables. The slab table tops are as nature intended them to be – raw in their beauty with vibrant, organic vibes to make your dining experience all the more special. The character features are preserved with a clear resin infill to retain the rustic overtones, merely adding a finishing touch to what is already a masterpiece.

For reference, if you cannot find the pricing for your specified dimensions of slab table top, please look at the next size up. The top(s) will be crafted to your exact measurements.

Natural Edge Table tops (also known as live edge table top, raw edge table top, waney edge table top) and/or contemporary, square edge table tops are a perfect solution for those seeking premium quality at a reasonable price. Live edge table tops or square edge table tops are comprised of wide stave, bookmatched (originating from one tree) planks of over 250mm width. The table tops are enhanced with our signature resin infill technique to preserve the earthy knots and rustic ‘imperfections’ (although we don’t see them as such). At an additional cost, the number of planks comprising your earthy top can be decreased, e.g. from four planks to two, very wide planks. Our rustic luxury table tops are carefully crafted in-house in our workshop in Lewes, Sussex. Discover the planked table tops range & prices – http://www.timberdeal.co.uk/live-edge-table-tops/

STEP 2 – CHOOSE YOUR EDGING

Live Edge Table,

Square Edge Table,

Part-Live, Part-Square Edge Table

are all included within the price of your wooden top(s). The choice ultimately boils down to personal taste. Our finishing service comes at an additional cost (please see price tables for details). Live Edge Slab Table Tops  are subject to availability.

STEP 3 – CHOOSE YOUR FINISH

Our finishing service includes fine sanding and application of oils/lacquer. The fine sanding process gives our surfaces a smooth, elegant finish. It also prepares them for the subsequent treatment with our recommended blend of finishing oils or lacquer. Our surfaces are further sanded in-between the application of each coat for added durability and aesthetic appeal.

STEP 4 – CHOOSE YOUR SUPPORT

Timberdeal legs and plates are crafted to order, calibrated individually to each surface, designed to allow for the natural movement of timber. More information about the support we offer can be found in the ‘Table Legs’ section of our website –http://www.timberdeal.co.uk/live-edge-table-legs/ We also offer general advice on the support required for wooden surfaces – http://www.timberdeal.co.uk/maintenance-guide/.

Please note we cannot advise on legs/any other form of support from external sources.

STEP 5 – IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT VACUUM KILN DRYING – CHOOSE RELIABILITY

Regrettably, a large proportion of wooden surfaces on the market is not adequately kiln-dried. Customers are often unaware of the risks that arise from purchasing wooden tops made from insufficiently dried timber. These include warping, twisting, swelling and infestation of woodworm. As a direct result, adjoining tops could also be affected and/or damaged. Unfortunately, these problems can take weeks to manifest themselves, by which time it is too late.

We kiln dry all our timber in-house, using the precise vacuum kiln drying chamber. This produces excellent quality wood with desired moisture content (below 10%)

The entire crafting process of your dream top, from tree to finished piece, is fulfilled under one roof, in our workshop in Plumpton Green, Sussex.

The uncompromising durability of our tables allows them to effortlessly withstand the test of time, complementing your home for generations to come.
