Dining Table

R 18,810.00

The Dining table is shaped with our distinguishing soft curved edges. The embedded dovetail rails allows the natural movement of the wood without causing the top to cup or crack.

Oak. Comes in 3 standard sizes, other sizes on request.

This is what we could say about our modern oak dining table: rectangular, modern, wooden, four legs. The description would be more or less accurate and it might tick a few SEO boxes, but it would also be a travesty. That’s because it misses so much craftsmanship, so much of the careful consideration that has gone into the creation of this table. It omits, for example, the subtlety of the top’s slightly curved edges, the simple beauty of the visible wedged tenons holding the legs in place, and angle and taper of the legs, the lightness of the table almost magically combined with a reassuring solidity.

The top is reinforced, on its underside, by embedded dovetail rails which add strength at the same time as allowing the natural expansion and contraction of the wood while preventing it cupping or cracking. This means that whether you choose a six-seater, eight-seater or 10-seater, this table will serve you and your family for many years.

Because we make our furniture to order, we can also make one to your exact dimensions. Specify one of our four durable finish shades then all you have to do is plan a delicious meal for family and friends to celebrate the arrival in your home of a future heirloom!

Our Oak:

We only use sustainably harvested American oak to craft our furniture. Timber is an inherently sustainable material - trees are (ideally) an infinitely renewable resource. But many manufacturers rely on monocropped pine, or other woods, due to cost and ease. This practice destroys soil and the surrounding ecosystem. All our oak is grown and harvested in indigenous forests on the east coast of America. Trees are felled only once they’ve reached full maturity. Then they are drawn from the forest in minimally invasive ways that preserve the surrounding vegetation. It’s all about delivering a truly sustainable and stunning product.

Manufacturing Process:

Paragraph: Carpentry and joinery are two of the oldest crafts on earth, and furniture making ordinarily requires a huge amount of skill in order to deliver truly exceptional results. Unfortunately, these traditions are largely dying off, particularly in the global South, making great wooden furniture hard to come by at reasonable prices. At Houtlander we want as many people as possible to have access to beautiful, well-crafted furniture which lasts a lifetime. This is why we’ve combined expert craftsmanship with 5-axis CNC technology, allowing us to create perfect curves, joints and furniture features in an affordable and replicable way.
