Why settle for anything less than the real deal? At Style My Home, we get excited about crafting dining tables from real timber! Unlike veneer, our tables withstand the test of time by expanding and contracting naturally with humidity changes. And the secret ingredient? The thickness of the timber! When it comes to the tabletop, it's crucial to get the thickness right. We have worked hard with our factory to conduct tests to determine how different thicknesses affect the durability of the wood and its resistance to cracking and warping. Now with this in mind, our stunning dining tables are crafted to perfection, so every inch of your table is sturdy, reliable, and always ready for a feast.

We use American Oak sourced from America.
 

Preparing Timber for Factory Use

Before arriving at the factory, the timber is cut and graded at a sawmill, then it undergoes a thorough drying process to reduce moisture content. Upon arrival, it is in plank form and is then machine-cut to the intended size.

Creating a Durable Table Top

To ensure structural stability and support, a single layer of timber joinery is glued onto a large sheet of plywood. Plywood is used instead of timber as the likelihood of timber cracking or warping is extremely high. After assembly, the table top is placed in a compactor machine for 24 hours to apply pressure while the glue dries, ensuring its durability.

Varnish

This process involves applying three coats of seal by a skilled artisan.

Crafting Sturdy Pedestal Legs

For the construction of pedestal legs, thick pieces of timber are shaped by a machine and then bonded together with glue. The sanding and finishing touches are added by skilled artisan ensuring quality and attention to detail to each piece.
