Spalted Beech Book Matched 6-8 Seat Dining Table
2100mm long x 800mm wide x 28mm depth
A truly remarkable table with beautiful colours, patterns and grain.
It has been carefully jointed, machined and finished in Osmo oil with black resin added in areas, all to add to its great finish and appearance.
Spalting naturally occurs when fungi enter the wood. Once the different fungi meet they put up the black defence lines known as zone lines to preserve their food source, whilst this is all happening the fungi also changes the colours in the timber.
In nature the soul purpose of fungi is to break down the wood, but here at Treecycling we have found a way of working with the fungi and the timber to achieve these stunning results without compromising the strength and stability of the timber.
Once the timber has been kiln dried the spalting process will stop.
Different legs are available on request, please ask.
As we are a sawmill we hand pick the trees we use for our tables and to cut them to get the best from each tree. We are often fortunate to be able to collect the trees from the place they grew which adds to the provenance of the finished pieces.
We only source trees from sustainable sources or trees that have to come down due to dying or becoming dangerous.
