  • The process of a tree trunk table - the steps
  • A photo is taken of each tree slab table and is posted online.
  • There we mention the table sizes and the type of wood.
  • With each order, the table is completely sanded again. All of the spots and dust will be sanded off.
  • And varnished, at your request.
  • After varnishing, the table will be sanded again for a very nice and smooth end result.

All tree trunk tables are stacked on top of each other in the pallet racks in our warehouse. That’s why there may be some dust or spots on the table. We always sand the tables again. We get rid of all the stains and rough spots
To make sure that all of the tree trunk tables look at their best when they are delivered at your home. After sanding, we can finish the tables with multiple coats of varnish at your request. You can also opt for the untreated finish.

The photos below show how the table is made into a finished product.
From sanding to applying varnish.

Which is better: a tree trunk table top with 4 cm or 8 cm thickness?

The thicker the table top, the more stable it remains. Furthermore, a table top of 8 cm looks fuller, but that is of course according to our own taste. The price of a 4 cm thick table top is always cheaper than one of 8 cm, which is logical since a 8 cm table top is twice as thick as a 4 cm hardwood table top. For a 4 cm table top, we advise a maximum span (length of the table) of 4.1 m and for a 8 cm thick table top up to maximum 6.1 m.

Do I choose a hardwood or oak tree trunk table?

An oak tree trunk table has a lighter weight and has a different appearance than a hardwood tree trunk table. Hardwood has a finer grain and therefore has a flatter finish. Oak is more coarse-grained an therefore has a slightly less fine finish. European Oak is a hard wood, however not as hard as hardwood. This makes tropical hardwood more hard-wearing and therefore more vandal-proof. Oak table tops have their own look, different from hardwood. Both hardwood and oak wood should be dried correctly in case it will be used as table tops. If oak and hardwood are not dried correctly, the wood will become unstable and will twist and crack.
Oak is cheaper than hardwood and that is what you see back in the price. It is up to your personal taste to choose the type of wood.

What if your size is not included?

No problem. We can make every table smaller without charge. Just order the tree trunk table you want, send us an email with your order number, tell us exactly how much you want to get cut (dimensions), it’s as simple as that.

Can I have a look at the tables?

We do not have our own showroom. However, we sell tree trunk tables of the brand Huefter where you are more than welcome to come visit from Monday to Friday between 9:00 and 16:00, as well as on Saturday. You can have a look at the finished tree trunk tables and model frames in the showroom. Everything is manufactured in The Netherlands.

Every tree trunk table is unique

Not one tree trunk table is the same, therefore each table top is unique. If requested, we can seal a natural crack that could occur in a table top. This is completely free of charge. You can also choose to not change anything about it, which gives the table top an extra robust character.
A tear or crack in the table does not affect the solidity of the table top, hardwood and oak are so strong that even multiple cracks won’t affect the quality. Tables from the brand Huefter are indeed vandal-proof.

Which types of wood do we sell in tree trunk tables?

We sell slab table tops in the hardwood types Pedra, Tatajuba and Jatoba and in oak. They are all stable and sustainable types of wood, suitable for indoor use. You simply can’t use every type of wood to make a tree trunk table! Not every type of wood is suitable! We have selected the best types of wood in hardwood and oak tables.

All of the wood for tables is dried and stress-free. We only sell the best tree trunk tables.

With or without varnish

Varnish is a type of lacquer which we have in a matte variant. This protects the wood from scratches, moisture and dirt. Since the varnish hardly changes the colour of the table, the natural charm of the wood remains intact and maintains its character. We always apply multiple coats of varnish, up to 4 or 5 separate coats, in order to ensure a good protection to the wood.

With or without metal frame?

A tree trunk table is heavy and not every frame can support this weight. Therefore, we have developed good and solid metal frames that give the table top good stability and that will reduce the chance of wood movement. However, this is not completely avoidable, it is always possible for a crack to appear, which is also the charm of wood. We have different models and colours of frames available. Each of them are mentioned on the web pages.

Small models of table tops and tables

We also sell small sizes of tree trunk table tops. They can be used as a coffee table, bathroom table or side table. These small tables are very ideal for DIY, you can make almost everything out of wood.

Longer sizes of tree trunk tables

We have table tops in stock up to a length of 6m1. The most frequently sold tables are between 2 and 3m1 long. If your preferred size can’t be found online, feel free to ask us about the possibilities.

Tree trunk tables as office tables

A tree trunk table used as a desk in your office is very ideal. They can be straight cut or with bark.

Tree trunk tables in stock

Every month a new stock of tree trunk tables are delivered. Our stock has a minimum of 50 pieces. Not all of the tables can be placed online. So if you have a specific question, also about a size you can’t find online, please send us an email or call our Advisory Team. We are happy to help.

Delivery and delivery time

Our transporter delivers the table or table tops with a mobile forklift, as far as the forklift can go. The driver is on his own so he isn’t able to place the table in your house. If you order a table; today before 12:00 - then it already gets delivered within 7 businessdays. If we apply varnish then it will get delivered with a expantion of 2 business days. Delivery at a later date is of course also possible in both cases. You can easily select your preferred delivery date in the shopping cart.
