This table was made by The River Tables UK team using character grade English Oak hand selected by Lewis with input from the client.
The river itself is a misted blue with slight powder bloom for added interest as per the clients request, made using GlassCast 50.
The legs were custom made from heavy duty steels to accommodate the vast weight of the table - which comfortably seats 14 and the table also incorporates hidden supports and bearers to help minimise movement in the future.
At 3.6m x 1.5m and weighing around 300kg, it's quite possibly the largest river table in the UK!
River tables UK was founded in 2018 by Lewis a bench joiner and cabinet maker from Sheffield.
After seeing a video on Facebook of a Canadian company making river tables, Lewis decided to salvage some small waney edge boards to use as test pieces and so the seed was sown.
Together with his mentor Tom they have over 25 years of experience in the bespoke furniture and joinery trade, so have a vast knowledge of different timber species and their varied characteristics. This all helps in delivering beautiful bespoke furniture that should last a lifetime.
These are the Glasscast Resin products used to make this project
