We made this custom wood slab dining table for a private client over the fall of 2012. They wanted a dining table worthy of their new home - one that would be just as comfortable for daily dinner with their son as it would be during a packed Thanksgiving feast. We designed a table that matched a bookmatched wood base in modern clean lines, with an unadulterated wood slab top.
Acacia wood was chosen by the client after careful consideration of a variety of domestic and exotic species. This wood is extremely beautiful and possesses great strength and moderate hardness, medium ribbon figure, and a striking contrasting sapwood.
We sourced the wood directly from a sustainable sawmill and went through a lengthy import process - having the wood shipped by ocean freight across the Pacific. Three more slabs from this shipment are in stock at our shop for immediate sale.
The slab was flattened to a true flat surface on both sides - not just sanded. This gives the table a perfectly smooth surface removes any twist that was introduced during the drying process. A lengthy sanding process up to 400 grit and a 100% non-toxic hand rubbed oil finish was applied to give the table a beautiful and low-maintenance finish. We use Tried and True brand oils, which are zero-VOC and safe for children and pets.
The base is a custom sawn book-matched set of acacia legs, made in house, and attached using a hidden metal bracket. The legs are more than strong enough to support the 400 pound table tipped on its end (already done). We never make a piece of woodwork that will break without extreme abuse.
Let us make you one of these beautiful and durable tables.
