The vast majority of the furniture I sell is hand made in Melbourne.
Over the last few years I have meet many talented furniture makers and the young guy who made these tables is one of the best. In fact I’d say his a perfectionist. I spent a day with him a couple years ago watching him make tables. He carefully selected the boards and then used a special technique of wetting the boards with some special mixture so he could predict the approx. colours of the table boards once the oiled finish would be applied. He repeated this process many times, moving boards left and right until he was satisfied the final result would be the best it could be. When it came to making the frame, I recall him measuring corner to corner to the exact mm to ensure the base frame and legs were perfectly square. I could literally watch him for days as he pursued with passion the perfectly crafted table.
I have a handful of tables available for sale at the moment a which are one off creations, handmade and finished in a special oiled finish for a superb look.
I cant order special sizes on these they are unique tables, as displayed.
If you like any of these pictured tables they can be viewed in my showroom in Nunawading normally priced at $5000 plus these will be available for $3999.
But its first in best dressed so please call to check if any have been sold.
We have a huge selection of chairs which we can prepare to compliment these tables to make a truly unique setting for your home. Thanks Mark.
We got talking and I could tell straight away the guy was a timber guy.
He really appreciated the quality of my ranges and was enjoying exploring all the different hardwoods on display.
As we talked he mentioned he had got stitched up in the past buying a hardwood cabinet he was told was solid timber only to find out later the tops were veneer. He was disappointed in himself for not spotting the difference, by the time he noticed and went back to the place of purchase the company had closed down, no surprise.
I explained that there are some products in the market place that have almost fooled my trained eye of 23 plus years experience.
I recently came across a full range of blackwood furniture imported where the tops looked solid however on closer inspection the tops were only solid about 10cm in from the ends and edges and the majority of the top surface area had been veneered in strips to match the solid end grains. To the untrained eye it looked solid.
When your looking for timber furniture make sure you ask lots of questions and seek out an independent retail furniture specialist, make sure they don’t have the words clearance centre or outlet or closing down sale on the windows and look around and find out how long they have been in business.
Quality furniture is an investment that will last if you make good choices. as the saying goes “Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten”
If your not sure what your considering is the real deal then its probably not and if you need a second opinion get in touch with me before you buy.
