A true in-house service. This outdoor, natural edge dining table is a centrepiece inspired by nature – waney edge table top with classical, timeless appeal, handcrafted using state of the art methodology. Alex’s table is an artistic yet distinguished mixture of the modern and the classic. It elegantly incorporates…
Raw wood beauty. The aging process gracefully darkened the luminous colour palette of European oak, enhancing the stunning organic patterns and striations. The raw overtones of the large sized wood slab are accentuated by a pair robust steel legs with a weathered finish. This ideally accords with Alex’s vibrant garden, establishing an effortless transition between the indoor and outdoor area.
Earthy appeal. large character oak table, rustic features of the timber are preserved with resin using our resin encapsulation technique. The earthy knots and voids filled with the clear substance, which forms a glacier-like effect over the imperfections once it hardens. This ensures hygienic use and retains the raw magnetism of the surface.
Maximum stability. Vacuum kiln drying is the most advanced and accurate method of drying timber and produces the best quality wood slabs, ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. The lower the moisture content, the less susceptible the wood table to changes in temperature, splits and cracks. Thanks to its minimal moisture content, Alex’s living edge table will swiftly adapt to its surroundings and develop resistance to the challenging Mediterranean climate, ageing beautifully over time.
Waterproof table design. Resin encapsulation renders the wood slab table water resistant. This innovative technique immerses the live edge wood slab in a protective blanket of translucent resin – invisible to the naked eye. The waney edge slab table top is not only pleasantly smooth, but also extremely durable.
