Made from 2.75" thick French Oak or Iroko, the Carpenters Table is a statement piece in any home. The rough finish and oil sealant give this table it’s raw aesthetic and charm.
The leg is designed with dry joints making it fully removable – a very traditional technique based around the strength of the end grain of the timber. The legs can be firmly knocked into place to assemble.
This design is inspired by 18 century French Workbenches that had to be robust and have removable legs to allow it to be transported from building site to building site. Historically, the tops of the heavy leg served as an anvil for hammering on.
The Carpenters Table is available in two timbers, and the lengths below are subject to the availability of timber at these lengths.
Please note that French Oak is a very character filled timber and characteristics such as knots, cracks and discoloration should not be considered as defects.
This design is for indoor use only.

In order to retain the natural finish of the timber we keep the number of protective coats to a minimum. Although this does add to the aesthetic appeal of the product, highlighting the natural qualities of solid wood, it does mean that the finish is not impervious to damage and staining. However, if you follow the instructions laid out below, it should be sufficient for normal use.
After use, wipe down the wood surfaces with a slightly damp cloth to preserve and protect the wood coating. Dry with another cloth if a lot of water remains. Do not expose these products for any extent of time to pools of water. If the products get wet you should dry them off as soon as possible.
If exposed to wine, vinegar and oils / oily food for an extended period of time the wood will stain. To avoid stains, wipe up spills directly with a slightly damp cloth and then dry. Spills should not be left overnight as they will sink in and mark.
Placing hot items on the wood may result in damage or burning. We recommend that you use coasters, and protect the table tops from hot dishes.
We do not recommend that you place indoor furniture outdoors. Outdoor furniture is specially designed to be able to withstand the dramatic temperature changes and moisture in the air. Avoid placing timber furniture items in full sun as exposure to sun/uV causes yellowing and light surface cracks.
Heavily air-conditioned environments require the use of a humidifier to restore the natural humidity of the air, as dry air will result in cracking / warping of the timber.
