Here at The Edinburgh Table Company, each item is a handmade bespoke piece made to order by skilled craftspeople. Our tables and benches come in a variety of styles using reclaimed and sustainable Scottish timbers.
We are a small and dedicated team of passionate individuals who enjoy building tables using natural and reclaimed wood native to Scotland. We are based in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders, just south of Edinburgh. Our workshop was originally a dairy and then a mill and we build and finish our products all under one roof. You are welcome to view tables in person at our workshop but please call or email first to make an appointment. We are an independent company with no affiliations to any other table companies. We are a member of the British Furniture Manufacturers trade association and adhere to its Code of Practice.
Our tables have heaps of character which makes them so attractive and must be remembered when viewing the website and considering what you desire. We believe 'rustic' or 'reclaimed' is not an excuse for poor workmanship, we build only a small number of tables each week and every one is built to our exacting standards. Each piece of wood has its own character be it original dents and scratches, missing knots, minor splits and discolouration but are finished to a glass smooth surface. After ordering a table from us we will make contact to discuss in more detail what you are looking for, so we can deliver a table that meets your expectations and you'll be happy to own.
Using old wood is a challenge but is very important to us. Not only is it totally unique and full of character but it is a much more ethical choice. We like to make sure that we look after the environment so as well as our reclaimed timber for our table tops our other wood for our table bases is sourced from sustainable forests in the EU. We make use of every off-cut that we can and we also have a long queue of friends and family looking for firewood! We only use environmentally friendly water based paints with no harmful chemicals. This is far nicer for us as manufacturers but also means it is very safe for you as our customer. Our finishes are pet safe and child safe as well as being good for the planet.
We also pay taxes (all our prices include 20% VAT) and employ our staff on the living wage which we feel means we are contributing to society.
