A coffee (or tea?) table new for 2018.
This coffee table is similar in design to the 1960s Slim, but is slightly larger and taller.
The basic design is as shown in the pictures, however this table can be customised to suit your required height, width and depth.
The wood used sapele, mahogany and keruing, all sourced in Gosforth and dating back to the 1960s. Rumour has it that the wood is all from a law firm which relocated. I was lucky enough to secure a great haul of hardwoods which will enable these tables to stay true to their name for some time to come.
The wood is cleaned, cut to size, assembled and then they are sanded, planed, sanded, planed, sanded and sanded and sanded (!) to produce a perfect finish, leaving the joins between each piece of wood almost imperceptible. They are then finished with a hard-wax oil which protects the wood and repels water.
All Handmade Tyneside products are handmade entirely from reclaimed or salvaged wood, using traditional carpentry and wood-shop techniques. This means each item is unique and therefore products may vary slightly, to those shown.
