This is our brand new solid wood dining table, just built and finished. It’s made from a stunning solid piece of Iroko (a timber very similar to Teak in it’s properties). The top is reclaimed and polished to a beautiful satin sheen. The legs are made from sustainably sourced soft wood timber and painted to a Basswood colour, which is a soft grey and brown and works perfectly with the Iroko top.

The table is handmade and hand finished with traditional French Polishing techniques, that expose the true beauty of the solid timber. The finish is designed to nourish the timber, so that it will get richer and deeper in colour, as the years go by. This is not a sprayed or a lacquered finish, our finish doesn’t sit on top of the wood, as these do but rather penetrates deep into the timber.
The end result is a beautiful solid table, that can’t possibly be replicated in any kind of veneer.
