OUR FINISHES

Design your perfect table and bench right here with The Rustic Table Company

1. TOP FINISHES

First, choose your table and/or bench top finish.

Tone 1 – Natural

 A light natural finish similar to an original scrubtop pine table.

Please note that our ‘Natural’ finish is not available with our ‘Rustic Characterful’ planks.

Tone 2 – Light Antique

Our classic tone, a timeless mid-depth shade similar to the majority of modern oak finishes.

Tone 3 – Dark Antique

A deeper and greyer weathered tone similar to light walnut or rich oak. 

2. BOARD TYPE

Then choose what type of board you would like for your table/bench top.

Clean Uniform
Planks

If you want a very crisp clean finish please request clean uniform boards.

You will get beautiful solid wood planks with uniform edges and no overly rustic features.

There will be no missing knots, no obvious splits, no dents, no marks from previous use.

Being solid wood you can still expect a small amount of seasonal movement.

Somewhere in the
Middle

Our standard tabletop finish is a gentle blend of character but completely functional.

What to expect: some characterful traits, but nothing too obvious or too many in number. Possibly some small missing knots sanded smooth or some highlighted grain marks. Some very minor stable splits or gentle dents.

In essence, a solid wood tabletop you won’t find on the high street!

Rustic Characterful
Planks

If you want something with lots of features and character then request a particularly rustic top.

You will get an assortment of the following characteristics: missing knots, minor splits, dents, old nails/staples, and old saw marks.

Basically more signs of a previous life and more natural features!

This finish comes with an additional charge as the older boards need more work to make them beautiful.

Please note that our ‘Natural’ finish is not available with our ‘Rustic Characterful’ planks.

3. ALL ABOUT THOSE EDGES

Then select the corners that you would like your table/bench to have.

Traditional Corners

Our traditional corners come as standard.

For our traditional corners, we add a slight angle on the top, bottom, and corners of the table just to remove any sharp edges whilst maintaining the straight edge of the planks.

Rounded Corners

Our rounded and smooth corners are a new addition for Spring 2023.

For our rounded corners we gently
round the top and bottom of the table top and corners, this makes the table very comfortable to use.

All to Get the Perfect Table For You

 *Please note that our ‘Light Antique’ and ‘Dark Antique’ leg finishes are not an identical match to our ‘Light Antique’ and ‘Dark Antique’ top finishes.
There may be slightly darker patches on the legs due to the table tops and table legs being made from different wood with different grains – our tabletops are made from spruce, whilst our table legs are made from pine. Every effort is made to achieve a cohesive look.
