FAQ

How many people can I get around a table?

 

On average you can fit the following:

 

4ft :  4-6 people (6 at a squeeze)

5ft :  6 people

6ft :  6-8 people (8 at a slight squeeze)

7ft :  8 people

8ft :  10 people

 

Bear in mind that if you squeeze in more chairs the end chairs will not be able to be pushed under the table when not in use.

 

Benches allow for more people to sit around a table, especially if some are kids! For example a 6ft table with one bench and the rest as chairs will easily accommodate 8 people.

 

 

How do I look after my table?

 

Our table tops are finished with a wax that cures a few weeks after application. Please be extra careful with your table top within the first few weeks to avoid marking the freshly waxed surface.

 

Once the wax has cured your table top is splashproof but not 100% waterproof or heatproof. Spills should be mopped up promptly. Tables can be wiped with a damp cloth or mild cleaner. Avoid using harsh detergents as the chemicals may break down the wax.

 

To refresh the surface of your table we recommend rewaxing at least once a year.  To do this simply use a mid grade sandpaper and gently rub the surface in line with the grain. This removes some of the previous wax. Then apply several light coats of a furniture wax as directed by the tin. We suggest Brixwax, Fiddes or Liberon. We use a mid tone wax but you can choose any tone to lighten or darken your table top. For more extensive information please request our Table Care guide via email.

 

For a harder wearing finishing you can use a matt varnish or hard wax oil. We prefer the natural look of wax as other finishes leave a shine.

 

 

Do you sell to commercial customers?

 

Yes absolutely. If you are looking for tables for a bar/restaurant/coffee shop or any type of commercial venue please get in touch for our trade price list. We also sell wholesale to a variety of resellers, chains and independents.

 

 

Do you have a showroom?

 

We don't have a showroom but you are nore than welcome to visit our workshop to view sample tables. We are located in Galashiels in the Borders. To arrange a visit drop us an email.

 

 

Can you make custom pieces?

 

We can make tables to any size so if you need a non-standard width, length or height please get in touch. We have made a variety of custom styles for both private customers and commercial outlets so the sky is the limit! All plank top tables comes in 22cm increments but can be cut down for a supplement.

 

When will my table arrive?

 

Our standard time frame is 4-6 weeks from time of order to delivery. Each table is made just for you as we don't hold stock in our workshop. At peak times such as before Christmas we recommend ordering at least 8 weeks in advance.

 

If you are in a rush get in touch before ordering and we will see what we can do.
