About Our Oak Table Tops

Our beautiful and bespoke best-selling oak table tops are designed and handcrafted by our timber experts from our timber yard and workshop in Plumpton Green Sussex. Our stunning and unique live edge oak table tops are truly unique, rustic -modern and guaranteed to add a unique sense of natural beauty and interest to your home or business.

We use beautiful waney edge oak slabs that we exclusively source from sustainable woodlands, National Trust and private estates across the UK, we then slice & vacuum kiln dry wood slabs on-site to ensure stability and maximum longevity. We personally hand pick each wooden slab for its unique rustic characteristics, such as the knots, cracks and striations, and delicately infuse them with epoxy resin to create stunning glassy details full of character and interest. We can also include a series of special effects, such as our tree bark preservation technique that is available through our luxury range. For more information regarding our luxury extras, please visit our site Earthy Timber or use our special requests form.

Our bespoke oak dining tables are available with a variety of different edging styles, each with their own stylistic characteristics. Our live or waney edging follows the natural shape of the tree to give a unique rural and rustic appeal or if you prefer the more traditional straight/ or square edging, we can also incorporate this style too. For those looking for something in between, we can offer our mixed edging which combines both edging styles.

Whether your desired table is for modern home or a rural and rustic styled cottage in the countryside, our stunning oak tables are guaranteed to suit all environments, and with the right finishing can be made suitable for commercial areas too. We can craft your stunning oak tables to suit pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels and office spaces. We offer two mains types of finishing, either our lacquer or oil finishing. Our lacquer finishing is suitable if you wish to retain the original earthy tones and textures of the timber and acts as a thick shield against water damage and scratches. Alternatively, we can offer our oil-based finishing which penetrates the timber to create multiple layers of protection and enhances the natural colourings to create shades of gold and orange.

Our solid oak tables are available to buy alongside any of our other products, such as our earthy modern oak shelves, kitchen island worktops, countertops and breakfast bars. When two or more of our solid wooden furniture products are bought together, we can craft them from the same tree to make a unique bespoke set of matching furniture for your home or business.

Like all our solid wooden furniture, our stunning and unique oak tables are completely 100% bespoke, so we expect each dining table to take around one month to create. This time frame also lets us ensure that your beautiful commissioned table is of the highest possible quality. Once your table is complete, it will then be delivered by our dedicated delivery service or be ready for collection from our workshop.

We recommend the use of our own table legs – see section dining tables –  in this way we can ensure the table is adequately supported. Our table legs are made to order and carefully calibrated to the exact size, type of table top construction and its weight.

Solid Wood Top Edge

solid wood top edges live edge square edge waney edge

Wood edges corresponding to the grain direction  (usually long edges) are eligible for customisation. Choose between any combination of the following: live edge, square edge, part live & part square edge. Vertical to grain direction edges are always square (usually the short edges).

Square edge wood top

solid wood walnut worktop square edge

As the name implies, all the top edges are finished with a straight edge to give it a traditional finish.

All our square edges are eased by hand. By taking sharpness off the wood edge (contour, border, outline), we accomplish soft, pleasant to touch edge,  whilst preserving crisp, sharp, contemporary appearance. All wood edges opposite to the grain direction (usually short sides, described as width (depth) of the top are always square. Long edges can be either square, natural (live), or part live part square.

Live edge (waney edge) wood top

Otherwise called waney edge wood plank, natural edge wood plank, raw edge wood plank, earthy edge wooden plank or wavy edge wood. Live edge follows the natural outer edge of the wood plank with the wood bark removed.

Part live & part square edge wood top

This is a combination of live and square edge to give the wooden piece a unique finish that works very well with both contemporary and traditional interiors.



Solid Wood Tops Finishing Service

Raw (Unfinished) solid wooden top– sanded to 120 grit and delivered (or collected) raw, ready for the finishing service, unless our professional finishing service was requested (please note tables are only available finished – fully protected).

Professional Finishing – if  you want to receive your solid wood top  ready to be used immediately, we recommend our in house finishing service. This includes surface fine sanding – preparing the tops for treatment with oil/lacquer to provide a hard-wearing finish. Treatment using Earthy® Timber’s recommended blend of high quality oils/lacquer ideal for surfaces requiring a hard-wearing and water resistant surfaces. The protective layer built with the oil/lacquer is water, heat, alcohol and food acid-resistant. The surface is also  finely sanded between the coats of treatment. Alternatively you may choose to purchase an unfinished solid wood top, which comes with basic sanding  (120 grit) and therefore will require further processing.

Fine sanding + oil

Finishing oil is the most organic method of finishing the wooden tops.  The unique properties of oil enhance the grain over time and amplify the natural tones of wood. The oil penetrates the  deeper layers of solid wood top (worktop) & creates a shield-like effect that prevents damage once the top layer of oil begins to fade. Oil-finished surfaces are easy to repair with another layer of oil, however the downside is that the surface marks quite easily with liquids, therefore it is not a recommended solution for bathrooms or utility rooms.  Your solid wood oak worktop or walnut worktop will require systematic re-oiling in accordance with our maintenance guide so that your solid wood worktop remains nourished and beautiful. The oiled-finish is perfect for those who love the natural qualities of solid wood in their kitchen.

Fine sanding + lacquer 

Lacquer is an ideal solution for durable, protective, low maintenance solid wooden top finish. It is the most cost effective, water resistant solution, ideal  for wooden worktops frequently exposed to moisture such as bathrooms or utility rooms but also solid wood tables and breakfast bars.  Unlike oil, which intensifies the depth of the colour palette, lacquer maintains the natural colour of wood with a transparent, preservative layer. Solid wooden tops finished with lacquer will last years without reapplication unless heavily used.

We utilise a water-based, low VOC solution that offers high resistance to scratches and stains whilst maintaining the natural beauty and feel of the solid wood top. It is ideal for use on hardwood worktops. The mixture also features a non-yellowing, UV protected formula. The protective layer built by the lacquer  is water, heat, alcohol, and food acid resistant.

Delivery Timescale

Due to the artisanal nature of crafting your wooden table, desktop, table top or wooden worktop to order, please allow approximately 8-10 weeks for completion. The timeline may vary based on the intricacy of your project and our workshop schedule.

Prior to scheduled delivery we will contact you to coordinate mutually convenient date and time.

To ensure a seamless delivery experience please ensure at the time of placing your order that there is space for the bespoke furniture / wooden top to pass through all entryways effortlessly. If space constraints pose a challenge, we can explore alternative solutions for you (additional costs may apply).

Additionally, please note that the wooden table top and legs can be assembled on-site, and in some cases, the wooden countertop can be delivered in parts and assembled at your location. Please inform us at the time of placing your order if specific assembly arrangements are required.

What is slab of wood?

Slab is a single plank of wood, without any joints on the length or the width. They are more expensive than planked tops because they are rarer to source and more expensive to process due to the lengthy and expert kiln drying procedure.

What is a planked wood top?

A planked wooden top is constructed from multiple staves (planks) jointed only on the width, never on the length, of the top, each stave  forming one continuous strip for the entire length of the worksurface. Planked tops are less expensive than a single large plank of wood (slab), but there is no compromise on the excellent quality of the natural wood top.

What ‘full stave’ top means?

Full stave means the wood plank is running along the whole length of the top, without any joints (as opposed to the surface being made up of little blocks, also known as block-style).

What ‘stave width’ means?

Stave width refers to the width of each of the wood planks. Stave width otherwise means ‘plank width’.

What is live edge?

Otherwise called waney edge, natural edge, raw edge or earthy edge. Live edge follows the natural outer edge of the wood plank with the bark removed

What is square edge?

As the name implies, all the edges are finished with a straight edge to give it a traditional finish. Our square edges are eased by hand. By taking sharpness off the edge, we accomplish soft, pleasant to touch contour,  whilst preserving crisp appearance. All edges opposite to the grain direction (usually short sides, being the depth of the top) are always square. Long edges can be either square, natural (live), or part live part squared contoured.

What is part live and part square edge?

This is a combination of live and square edge to give the wooden piece a unique finish that works very well with both contemporary and traditional interiors.

Do you work with softwood (such as pine worktops)?

We specialise in English and European hardwoods (deciduous trees with broad flat leaves)  this is because as the name suggests, the wood of hardwood trees is harder, denser, tighter than the wood of other trees and as a result the hardwood tops are very durable. We do not use pine (coniferous species, small needle like leaves) for our projects as softwood is easy to dent and the grain is not as tight as in hard wood and in our experience they are not suitable for wooden worktops or flooring.

It takes more effort and is more costly to process the hardwood than softwood, this is because hard wood is tougher, more condensed, making their wood perfect for our high quality, beautiful wooden table tops and solid wood worktops. Our wild walnut table tops or oak desks are practical pieces of art.

What is the difference between slab top (single plank top),  table top planked and wooden worktops?

Appearance and price. Our full stave worktops are made up of jointed planks with more narrow staves (compared to the planked table tops). This is the less expensive option.

Our planked table tops are made up of jointed planks with wider staves. The planks are book-matched (meaning they originate from the same tree). This is the more expensive option.

You may also opt for a slab. Slabs are single, very wide planks. Slabs are priced significantly higher than the table tops. It is also possible to buy DIY slabs – professionally vacuum kiln dried, levelled and planed material (with no further treatment).

Why your table legs are more expensive?

Our high quality, handcrafted to order in our workshop, removable table legs and matching plates are calibrated individually to each wooden surface (important factors to consider are weight, width, length, thickness, construction of the table top). The supporting plates are embedded in timber so that your table will never ‘wobble’. It is a truly bespoke service that is tailored to the size & weight of your surface but also and equally importantly, allowing for the natural movement of timber as it expands and contracts as the temperature and/or humidity of the room changes.

This prevents cracks and splits in the wood. Paired with our precise vacuum kiln-drying method, this provides you with the furniture to last for generations.

Please note that, for obvious reasons, we cannot advise on legs and support from other sources.Using the legs not supplied by us invalidates warranty on the surface.

Why vacuum kiln drying of wood is important?

All our timber is vacuum kiln dried below 10% moisture content at the very core of the wood plank, as this is an essential process  to ensure the wood is stable and suitable for internal use. Regrettably a large proportion of timber on the market is not processed in this way and clients are unaware of the potential dangers of purchasing incorrectly dried timber including warping, twisting, swelling, encouraging the infestation of woodworm. Also neighbouring surfaces  regardless of composition (mdf, timber plywood etc.) could potentially be affected and damaged. Unfortunately these problems can take months to manifest themselves by which time it is too late.

Timber is a natural product 

We personally hand-pick the quality, character logs for all our projects. As timber grading specialists we identify the trees with unique features and natural, earthy characteristics such as beautiful grain, knots, voids, pippy scatterings and splits that are compatible with our love for rustic-modern perfection. We invite nature to your home and our surfaces will reflect that rustic excellence subtly enhanced with clear epoxy resin, so you can see them and enjoy them yet the surface is hygienic to use.

If you prefer very uniform appearance, without character our product is not a natural choice for you.

Can I select wood planks /wood slabs for my project?

For 99% of our commissions the planks are selected by our experts on the customer’s behalf. Our instagram accounts will give you an insight into our past projects if you want to see examples and diversity of colour, grain detail and rustic features.

Our skilled carpenters will select the boards that are colour, grain & feature compatible. We instinctively know, which wood boards are going to work in harmony ensuring the best aspects of the wood are displayed.   We then enhance the rustic knots and voids  with our signature resin infill technique, so that no two surfaces will ever look the same.  If you wanted to personally select the wood planks for your project, this service is available for single items over £5000. Items below this value will entail an extra charge of £360+vat paid up front. The selection process can take place either in our workshop or via mobile devices by prearranged appointment.

What is unfinished wood top / raw wood top?

sanded to 120 grit and delivered (or collected) raw, ready for the finishing service, unless our professional finishing service was requested.

What is included in Professional Finishing?

If  you want to receive your surface ready to be used immediately, we recommend our in house finishing service. This includes surface fine sanding – preparing the tops for treatment with oil/lacquer to provide a hard-wearing finish. Treatment using Earthy® Timber’s recommended blend of high quality oils/lacquer ideal for surfaces requiring a hard-wearing and water resistant surfaces. The protective layer built with the oil/lacquer is water-, heat-, alcohol- and food acid-resistant. The surface is also  finely sanded between the coats of treatment.

Alternatively you may choose to purchase an unfinished surface, which comes with basic sanding  (120 grit) and therefore will require further processing.

What is your lead time?

Because your goods are crafted to order, it takes approximately 5 – 8 weeks depending on the complexity of your project and our workshop schedule.

Is the wood for my project responsibly sourced?

The trees that we choose to work with are sustainably sourced and replenished with newly planted saplings.

Please note tolerance for square edges

+/- 2mm

Please note tolerance for waney edges or part live part square edges.

Up to 100mm for standard projects, usually less than that.

I have bespoke shape and/or  cut outs requirements , can you help?

  1. Andrew

    Thank you for your help in us making a good decision on edges and size of live edge oak table top. Resin infill in knots and open voids looks very natural and beautiful. Thank you, we will be back soon for matching live edge coffee table and perhaps a couple of live edge shelves.

    Our project for this year was to redecorate our open plan lounge and dining room that are joined by an arch. The plan was to increase natural daylight in the rooms by adding a side window. The rooms where quite dark as there are six oak trees at the front that reduce light coming in the front bat window.

    So our aim was to maximize light and create a light and airy feeling by removing clutter and choosing modern wooden furniture and colours to reflect and promote lightness.

    Stage 1 was the lounge, we removed the existing dado rail, filled and sanded the walls. Had the hole for the new window cut and new window installed. We removed the tv table and mounted the TV on the wall and put all the cables in trunking.
    Next was paint, I then constructed a window seat, with storage. The top of the window seat was oak constructed from window sill boards. To finish the lounge we added a feature wall.

    Our next consideration was the dining table, the existing table was something we exchanged for a bottle of whisky 15 years ago, and somehow never got round to replacing. We had started looking at tables at the beginning of the project, we did find something we liked in a popular department store, but the wood surface seemed deeply grained (e.g. sand blasted) and appeared to be quite porous. It was apparent that you had to self-assemble the legs to the table. At which point it occurred to me I could buy wooden table top and legs.
    My initial search started by looking at full stave worktops, I sent for some samples to convince the family this was the worth considering. We continued looking for tables in normal retail outlets and either found they were very expensive, or not solid (a thin oak bard on a frame) or oak with very little character.
    The only problem with making our own table was the desire to make it extendable. In the end we able to move our existing storage so we could make the wooden table long enough to have three chairs down each side, avoid the need to have a chair on the end that would block access to our conservatory. The wood table is long enough to fit 4 chairs down each side plus a chair at each end for the odd occasion like Christmas where we might need 10 sittings.

    Now I had to finalise the choice of solid wood table top and metal legs. The legs were easy as we decided X shaped legs gave maximum flexibility on chair positions. We had a choice of using character full stave worktop or a handcrafted to order live edge top from Earthy Timber. The Earthy Timber’ website was very helpful explaining how they prepare the timber in vacuum kiln to dry the timber to less than 10% moisture. It also explained how to choose legs and finish the wood. To avoid cracking and splitting.
    Finally we decided against the standard oak worktop option from companies like Norfolk Oak, Worktop Express or Wood and Beyond, because there was no information on how the wood was sourced or prepared. The staves would have been narrow, the sides would have been straight.
    I choose the Earthy Timber top as it would have a character grain any natural cracks and knots would be filled with resin. I opted to have a live edge for more character. So the order was placed. To keep the cost down I opted for unsanded and unfinished.

    I then made space in the garage to complete the sanding and lacquering of my wooden table with beautiful natural, wavy edge. I found some lacquer online called Mann’s pro lacquer that was a two part water based lacquer. This would provide a fully waterproof coating. I opted for the clear /satin option.
    When the oak table top arrived it was already finished to a high standard. I sanded both sides further with p600/p800 silicon carbide paper. I positioned the legs and drilled the holes for the legs. I had already added new 10mm holes to the legs as the supplied holes were only 5mm slots the would not allow enough movement for differential expansion between the metal legs and the natural character oak table top.

    I then lacquered the bottom side of the wood table to confirm that the lacquer was the right choice. It was quite a tough finish, I sanded between each coat. The first coat need a bit of sanding because it raises the wood grain. I applied 3 coats of lacquer as recommended by Timberdeal/ Earthy Timber

    Finally the oak table was ready for assembly, it was carefully lifted into the dining room. The two X legs bolted on with 8 x M6 Stainless lag bolts (coach bolts) with large washers.

    The final live edge oak table from Earthy Timber Design was everything we hoped for and exceeded the options we had seen in retail shops and all other online suppliers. The grain includes the different elements found in oak grain. There is a large interesting knot filled with resin, where you can look in and see interesting shapes. The wavy edge makes the table different and connects you to the fact that this was a living structure.

    We used the pricing tool and ordered live edge table top in a patterned wood (we were open to elm/oak/yew etc) that measured 150cm in length, approx. 50cm deep allowing for fluctuance of the natural wood plank edge.
    We priced it as finished (planed, oiled and ready to fit) and ordered the oak table top online. The countertop is very nice and my fitter and I are very impressed with the quality.

  4. Kay

    We live in a traditional style house and wanted to upgrade our dining room furniture. We started with the oak dining table from Earthy Timber ‘s luxury range and it the main feature of the room. The table seats 8 to 10 people people and we love the resin infill that complements our otherwise quite traditional cottage house.
    We now consider what other side pieces might compliment the table furter such as live edge wood sideboard or oak kitchen island with breakfast bar to join open plan kitchen with living room.

  5. Rosaline

    Earthy Timber hand-crafted a custom natural oak breakfast bar in an L shape for our new German kitchen. The measurements are 1900mm x 550mm on long edge and 1500mm x 550mm on short edge. The wood edges are partially square with shape of the tree preserved in placed. I love the rustic – modern look and natural warmth of our statement kitchen island extension. Earthy Timber is an exceptional company with genuine environmental credentials. Our oak table top is made from the salvaged wood and dried in vacuum chamber. The oak’s imperfections are transformed into stunning details, thanks to their unique technology. Look no further!
