Wood Table Ordering Process & Tips
The first thing to do when designing your handmade table is to decide the size and shape you’d like. It is still important to understand exactly what works best in your living space. That’s why you should measure the space of your room.
Although we have extensive experience in designing and creating custom dining tables and epoxy river coffee tables, it’s always a good idea to do the research yourself and get an understanding of what you’re looking for.
Whether you are looking to order something relatively small, such as a console or end table or a rectangular-shaped dining table, take your time and see as many ideas as you can.
It is also really helpful if, during our free consultation, you have an image that we can analyze and build a design that will fit your needs and requirements.
There are different styles that you can choose from and we can incorporate these styles into many different table types. The 4 main table styles we use are the natural edge and handcrafted live-edge tables, epoxy river tables and straight edge tables. Whatever style you choose to order, your solid wood table will be exclusive and one-of-a-kind, as there are no same pieces of wood. For more table types and styles you can also check Home Stratosphere.
Natural edge & Handcrafted live-edge tables
The natural edge is a style of furniture where you can have the edge of the wood into the design of the dining table. Live Edge Table is made of solid wood and leaves at least one side of the table natural. It is considered more environmentally friendly than normal wooden tables because more of the wood is being used.
A handcrafted live-edge table style, on the other hand, is the less expensive option, as we will craft the edges of the table.
Although the live edge table style has become increasingly popular in the furniture industry, it has a style of its own that goes beyond any trend. By having a live edge table you can bring a sense of uniqueness, balance and make your living room even more visually appealing. The edged along with curves, knots, holes, and deformities of the wood will be the main attraction.
You can apply the natural edge style to boardroom tables, dining and coffee tables and even console tables. Finally, depending on the wood you choose, we can apply various shades of stain.
River Tables with Epoxy Resin
An epoxy river table style is a growing trend all over the world. These tables are very modern and a real eye-catcher. Above all, the River Tables create a very appealing contrast through the combination of solid wood and epoxy resin. This style appeals to wood furniture lovers and also to people who prefer a modern style.
We will keep the unique natural edge of the wood to create a perfectly smooth, flat table surface. It is possible to retain the appearance of a channel that looks like a river by filling the gap between the planks with epoxy resin
With live-edge tables, the natural edge of the wood is faced to the outside of the table. When it comes to a river table, the natural edge is also inward, giving the look of a flowing river. To fill the gap, we usually use epoxy resin or we can cover it with a glass top. You can also choose to add a waterfall effect to your epoxy river coffee table.
1BENMU specializes in creating astonishing epoxy river tables in Toronto and we usually apply the epoxy river style to dining and coffee tables.
The high-quality Live Edge Table Top not only lasts for a long time but also gives your home a unique look. There are many advantages of having a Custom Dining Table made of solid wood, such as uniqueness, durability, high quality etc.
- Durability: Your live edge table will be made of hardwood and will maintain that strength for decades. Unlike the ones made of particle board or MDF, our custom table tops & walnut dining tables will last through the years. According to the internationally acclaimed woodworker, architect and leader of the American craft movement George Nakashima, furniture should mean to be lived with as a member of the family.
- Natural beauty: The uniqueness of the wood is timeless and you can never go wrong with a live edge table. The imperfections of the wooden slabs show the beauty of wood and make the live edge furniture unique. 1BENMU will use the natural holes and cracks in the wood to create a one-of-the-kind table just for you.
- Resistant to wear and tear: The slab we use won’t sag over time the way cheaper woods like plywood, particleboard, and fiberboard will.
- Craftsmanship: We use the finest quality craftsmanship and construction techniques. When you buy a ready-made piece, you can never get the quality as good as in solid wood tables. You can order the exact shape and size and get exactly what you want for your home.
Although all our live edge tables look like they have been encased in glass, you should always use coasters for hot food or drinks to prevent any damages.
Each custom table top has the actual natural shape of the tree, which means that the surface will be uneven. This unusual surface can be a challenge to clean and maintain.
To clean your natural edge table, you can use a microfiber cloth soaked in soap water or detergent to wipe the surface of the table. You can also use natural cleaning products, such as vinegar, which is naturally antibacterial and will remove the residuals of the irregular surface.
Microfiber cloths have a super-soft, absorbent surface that allows them to clean the table top without scratching it. Once cleaned, wipe with a dry cloth to remove any moisture left. If you spill something on the surface, you should wipe it up immediately.
Don’t forget to dry dust your live edge table top regularly to help keep it clean.
To prevent damages, the ideal humidity levels in your home must be around 45%-55%. A sudden change in temperature or humidity can cause tension inside the wood.
We recommend avoiding any direct contact with the sun, and of course, it should not be too close to a fireplace, as it will dry it out.
Finally, if your table has scratches on the surface and you just want to get rid of them, you can check our furniture restoration services.
The price of custom wood tables depending on many different factors. First of all it depends on the material. Traditionally walnut is more expensive than ash and when it comes to river tables, the epoxy will increase the price significantly.
As for the wood, each slab is sourced from a single tree and usually, it is not easy to find the exact size or the exact species. This is also one of the main reasons why it is impossible to mass-produce live-edge tables and why there is no fixed price.
The second factor is the time and energy put into the live edge table. The natural edge tables will be custom made to your specifications and wishes. Depending on the requirements you have, it can be a bit pricier.
Finally, the whole process of production is done by hand in our studio in Toronto, Ontario.
In order to get a general idea, you can visit our online shop and see the price of each style, wood material and size.
