We created this table with reclaimed Tabak wood, Lagerstroemia floribunda Jack.
Our company is based in Thailand and we regularly go on a scouting trip to local woodsheds which purchase traditional Thai wooden houses and sell them in parts.
We used 4 boards of this reclaimed wood, using traditional wood working techniques and a healthy dose of sanding by hand.
We applied 7 layers of natural oil, leaving this table with a warm honey colored glow.
Since we use reclaimed wood, you will notice some restorations on the surface.
Do note that we do not level the bottom of our tabletops. By doing so one can notice we use old wood, we feel the uneven bottom ridge adds to the character of the table.
For the base we opted for our PT11 hand-cast base, in solid brass, created by a Armando, a75 year old Italian Bronze-master, and his team. Please note we decided not to add a primer on the brass: a primer is a coating which seals the brass form the surrounding air, thus slowing down the natural oxidation – antique dealers would call this ‘patination’ – process. This table base will oxidize over time.
This table is, as any of our tables, a unique handcrafted specimen
