Raw wood furniture is becoming increasingly popular, as people seek to add a more natural feel to their Homes. Natural raw wood finishing allows the natural beauty of the wood grain to shine through. It is also a more environmentally friendly option as there are no chemicals used in the process. At SFD Furniture Design, we care for the environment and nature, and we move with the times. We are constantly trying to improve the current design of our dining tables, but we also create completely new models. An example of this is the SLICE NATURE, designed and handcrafted entirely by SFD. In the article below we briefly present a part of the design process, our assumptions and the final product.

Nature’s Art: The Beauty of Slice Nature oak dining table
The Slice Nature dining table was made entirely by hand from solid oak wood oiled with a unique blend of oils and waxes to preserve the natural raw character of the wood. It was a great challenge to achieve the intended result.
Its characteristic feature is a longitudinal slit running through the top, dividing it into two symmetrical parts. It makes the table seem lighter and takes on a minimalist, Scandinavian character. The use of oak wood for both the top and the base has been inspired by Japanese dining tables where solid wood is the main building material, and the hand-crafted, detailed workmanship emphasizes the special importance of the table in our Home.
The Slice Nature table was created as a natural development of our previous table models – Slice Black and Slice White. The main difference in these models is the use of a different color of oil on the tabletop and the use of a steel powder-coated frame.
Raw oak finishing: Years of development
The design of a new table model with the raw wood finish is not created overnight. It is a demanding and long-lasting process, preceded by numerous material and constructional tests and trials. Just like in the car industry, where several years are spent on developing a new color for the car body, here too it is a long process. Choosing the right oil, which will protect oak wood and at the same time will bring out its beautiful grain and structure, requires many trials. Eventually, we managed to achieve the right effect, which we are satisfied with. This colouring is called natural oak, very subtle but also resistant enough to protect the wood.

Amazing effects – unique and fully preserved oak dining table
Our goal was to achieve the effect of natural, raw, simple, and protected wood – this was possible due to numerous oil tests. We think we managed to create a table for people who like simplicity and living according to nature. At the same time Scandinavian in character. A table that can be understood as applied art, gives character to the whole interior.
