Design Your Own River Table Guide

  • Designing Your Dream...

    Welcome to our unique and exciting river tables! Whilst we try to keep our creations in stock to view online and in our shop, 90% of all the river furniture we make are commissions made individually to our client's tastes.

    All our wood & resin creations are made in our Suffolk workshop by our senior craftsman, and we have grown over the years into the UK's leading maker of this unique style.

    Here is a guide to creating your perfect table but of course this is not an exhaustive list, we welcome new ideas and requests!

    We are happy to offer any advice or help with any of the above aspects so please don't worry if you are unsure about any of the selections

  • Wood Selection

    We hold a large stock of live edge pieces and generally have the following readily available;

    Other timbers may be possible to find so please ask

    All our timber is age dried for a number of years and then kiln dried for 3-4 months, bringing the moisture content down to the prime level for interior furniture

    Character Oak - Straight grain but with a gentle edge and maybe a few knots and pips
    Burred Edge Oak - Greater figuring and with beautiful gnarly burred edges
    Burr Oak - Very rare and highly figured wood with wild patterns and edges (hard to find in all sizes)
    Character Elm - A beautifully unusual wood with interesting grain and medium tones
    Burr Elm - Jaw-dropping grain and wild edges, smoother to the touch than oak
    Yew - Striking yellow/orange hues with crazy grains many natural imperfections (can be hard to source very wide planks)
    French Walnut - Smooth and straight grained with meandering edges. Soft light-brown hues
    Olive - Unique grain patterns and soft yellow tones (Can be hard to source in wide and thick planks, best suited to small tables and media unit doors etc)
  • Layout

    Choose the look of your table by changing the layout. Sometimes the actual piece of wood may dictate this but use these four as a guide

    Classic river layout - central river with straight wooden outer edges
    Live outers - live edges to the wood for the river and outer edges (exact depths hard to acheive and not suitable for burred edge timbers)
    Resin to outer edge - Full plank widths retained but straight resin edges
    Single slab - One large slice cast in resin
  • Resin Colour & Effects

    Although this is almost infinite, here are some special effects we have developed over the years. Most of these effects can also be produced with alternate colour themes or you can opt for a solid opaque or transluscent colour of your choice.
    It is also helpful to look through our past projects to see if there is an effect or colour you like that is not listed here

    Reef Blue
    Ocean Theme
    Terminator Silver
    Deep Sea
    Kryptonite Green
    Lava Flow
    Molten Gold
    Galactic Blue

    We offer two types of finish on our tables;

    Satin wood/gloss resin. This technique has taken years to master and give a natural satin sheen on the wood parts will retaining high gloss to the resin parts.
    Easy to maintain
    Natural appearance
    Hard wearing

    Full Gloss resin finish. This is very labour intensive and gives a full high gloss finish to both the wood and resin parts.
    Impressive high gloss sheen
    Hard wearing but difficult to remove scratches that may occur
    Adds extra cost to the project

    Satin Oiled/Gloss resin finish
    Full gloss resin finish
