We create tables as naturally as possible. Old (and often well travelled!) pallets are disassembled, cleaned up and put back together. We have many different finishing techniques which can be seen in our various listings. We try not to use varnishes or lacquers (unless specifically requested) as we find the results often aren't as good as many other natural protective barriers - such as beeswax. Some of our tables are coloured and stained with natural products including coffee, beetroot, turmeric and red wine which all turn out great!
If you decide to buy one of our listings which may have already been sold, we will contact you and offer to create another one as similar as possible. All pieces will be very slightly different, however the upmost care is taken to replicate the original using the same process and materials, and you can count on all the edges being tidy and flush.
We can also work with you to create a custom table, unique to you, so please don't hesitate to send us a message!
From an old tatty pallet to a unique and charming centrepiece....
HERE WE GO!
We collect our old pallets locally. Often they are left disregarded and bound for the furnace or landfill which is such a waste of good quality wood. We use EPAL pallets which are the highest quality pallet available, aren't treated with any toxic chemicals and any wood which is considered vulnerable to any rot is disregarded
The next step is taking each pallet apart and deciding which parts of the pallets will be used for each project or commission. This is pretty hard work as we use a mallet and a crowbar to pry apart the exceptionally well put together pallets! At this stage we discover and are often happily surprised with all of the different varieties of wood we have collected
SANDING AND ASSEMBLY
The next step it to straighten any boards if necessary, plane and sand them down so they are nice and smooth and start putting them together. Some of the pieces are glued and this can be a messy process!
This is the fun bit... The piece already have character at this stage, some of the old knocks and marks are now evident and we chose the design to fit the table. Some are burnt and stained, some painted and some kept natural, its completely up to you!
