Solid wood table construction. Everything you could ask for
In our descriptions, we use specialized terms for table construction parts. We understand perfectly well that these may be terms not understood by our readers. Below we present a kind of glossary describing the construction and operation of the most important structural elements of solid wood table construction that we produce entirely by hand at SFD Furniture Design.
Table tops on rectangular models
The table top is the most important element of everything wooden tables. At SFD Furniture Design we have developed our own method of joining the tabletop with a metal frame. In this way, we have eliminated the need to use the so-called apron, which is a wooden element under the table top strengthening the whole structure. Thanks to this procedure tables like the BASIC TRE oak table, the BASIC NIO oak table or the BLACK FOREST wooden table have gained an elegant, minimalist silhouette.
It is also worth mentioning two variations of tops, which we offer on our oak tables. NIO/TRE s series models have overhanging tops, while NIO II/TRE II oak dining tables have no overhang, and the top is flush with a metal frame.
Tabletop construction – extension solutions
In the case of rectangular extendable tables, there are 2 ways of enlarging the wooden top:
- Additional attachments enlarging the tabletop. Used in ALASKA wooden tables and BLACK FOREST oak tables, they are attached to the top with solid butterfly screws. Thanks to this solution, the main top remains uncut in the middle, which would be necessary for more traditional constructions. Additionally, the unfolded table forms a beautiful monolithic piece, which is the quintessence of Scandinavian minimalism.
- 2. Top enlargement by use of specialized sliders with wooden inserts in the middle of the top. The solution is used for LISTIG and VIS tables. Presented tables can be easily unfolded by one person. When they are no longer needed, the wooden inserts will find their place under the tabletop, so no additional space is required to store them. The solution has been designed in such a way that the table does not lose its lightness, even though the folding mechanism is hidden under the wooden table top.
Round wooden table tops
In the case of the most popular round tables with a metal frame, the tops are made of solid oak wood. They are available in extendable and non-extendable tables. After being properly secured with high-quality oils, the top is permanently fixed to the frame. This creates an extremely solid unit and has a huge impact on the stability of the entire structure. Round tops are available in 3 popular diameters (100/110/120cm), we also offer custom designs.
Solutions for extending wooden table tops
Due to table construction, we use only sliding mechanisms in the BASIC MANE/BASIC MANE II series of round tables. The whole works on a similar principle to the BASIC LISTIG/BASIC VIS oak tables. The round table top is cut into two halves, which when extended to the opposite side create a free space in the middle. It is then supplemented with a specially adapted wooden plate. The board is stored separately.
There is already a new round table model in preparation which will allow to hide the board directly under the table top. We invite you to follow our Facebook profile, where we will inform you about it as soon as the new table will be in our offer!
A few words about metal table frames
All table frames are SFD‘s projects. They are crafted by experienced craftsmen from the best materials available on the market. The steel used by us is also not ordinary. It is steel of higher quality and the steel profiles used are much more durable than similar ones currently available on the market. The frame structure is self-supporting, it can also stand stable without a top. This is the essence of its extraordinary strength and durability for many years.
This is what the table consists of. Be sure to let us know on Facebook or Instagram if there are any other furniture issues you encounter and their importance is often not understood. We will be happy to explain them!
We also invite you to take a look at our full range of solid oak tables, which are available in the SFD Furniture Design shop’s range. Discover our unique products and choose a wooden table that particularly appeals to you!
