This dining table was made up of solid lengths of teak jointed together with floating tongues. These had previously been repaired using what looked like silicone sealer(!) and hadn’t been clamped up properly or even flush at the ends.
Repairs involved re-doing the jointing, routing the ends straight and planing some of the boards which wouldn’t separate in order to get the top looking reasonably flat and uniform.
The table had also been stained with quite an uneven red stain and had lots of dents and white filler in the gaps so there was quite a bit of touching-in to do here and some localised staining to get everything ever before adding a cold stain to kill the red and bring back a more natural tone. Finally, we finished the top in shellac and wax.
Sorry, couldn’t resist the Christmas pun 😉
We’ve had the black french polish out in our workshop ebonizing some shizz. We’ve got a very cool Hans Wegner ‘The Chair’ replica, a nice set of Mid.C dining chairs and a cool little oak cabinet. Watch this space.

Have a great Christmas!
We went to their last one in Hackney a couple of months ago which was great – See our Post and photos of that event below…
