Toby Table in Pickled Oak
After the success of the Chairs, Toby's customers persuaded him to come up with a matching Toby Table. The wedge shaped design is just right for a couple of glasses of wine and bowl of nibbles or coffee and croissants.
Made from beautiful, sustainably sourced European Oak, every single piece is individually inspected, cut, drilled & finished. Oak is a much sought after hardwood; strong, heavy & durable. Our Pickled Oak range is inspired from a centuries-old scientific principle - Iron reacts with the tannin on the wood, and creates a beautiful black shade within the wood itself.
To achieve this finish, we firstly wash the Oak in a specially prepared Oak bark powder tea, and then using a solution of iron and vinegar, we wash the Oak several times until it becomes a consistent and beautiful jet black.
In addition to three coats of a high quality protective teak oil we use two further coats of a high-grade UV protective oil, to help to preserve the colour when used outside. We can recommend a suitable oil with UV protection for maintenance of your Pickled Oak chairs - application is straightforward.
Caring for Toby Tables
The Pickled Oak Toby Tables will quite happily withstand a quick rain shower, but we recommend that you bring the chairs inside if bad weather is forecast. To keep your chair in perfect condition, store it in a dry place and occasionally show it some love with a top up of protective oil - you can now buy teak oil in spray form, making it super quick and easy to coat.
