Outdoor tables made from kwila timber are long-lasting and resistant to rot, warping and splitting. Tables made with mortise-and-tenon joints, marine epoxy glues and stainless steel fastenings will give long and trouble-free service. The oiled finish is easy and economical to maintain, but as kwila needs no protective finish, tables made from this timber can be left to weather to a natural silver grey, and will need only occasional cleaning – we recommend Wet and Forget every second year or so. If the table has got away from you, try one of the green nylon rectangular potscrubbers and warm soapy water (with the grain) then hose off. If it has really got away from you, products like Hit The Deck or Cabot’s Deck Clean are good. Blob plenty on, a piece of old towel is good, leave the required time, then scrub. Also scrub when hosing off. This got my own ten-year-old furniture back to brown wood (and I wasn’t happy – I liked it silver). If you want to keep it brown, get a coat of whatever you are using onto it quickly. Within a week my furniture started to silver again – I was pleased but you might not be!
As we make each table individually, it costs no more and takes no longer to have an outdoor table made to your measurements – a little bigger than the examples shown will be a little dearer, a little smaller will be cheaper. If you already have outdoor chairs, bring one in, and we can make a table to suit their height and width. Take a look at our made-to-order page for some examples. We normally attach legs with mortise-and-tenon joints and marine epoxy glues, but if you have access or transport problems we can make the tables with detachable legs, using stainless steel lag screws. To work out how big a table will fit your space, subtract 1.8 metres from the length of deck, and 1.8 metres from the width. this will give 900mm of space around the table: this is enough for people to be able to push their chairs back behind them when they stand up. You will also have to allow room for people to walk and doors to open.
