Bespoke Round Table, Reclaimed Hardwood, Brass Base by P. Tendercool

$14,390per item

About

We just created this table for a New-York-based couple. They fell in love with our work and after a couple of back-and-forth and many screenshots later, we nailed down the brief, the type of wood, metal, finishes, patterns and dimensions. And so we set out to create this fierce round table for them. The wood is reclaimed Burmese Blackwood, Dalbergia cultrate, rescued from a demolished wooden house in the North of Thailand – a few-hours drive from Bangkok where we are based. This wood is very dense and boasts a particularly beautiful grain. Following our client instruction we slightly bleached the wood before applying an oil finish. The top is mounted on our PT16 sand cast Brass base with brushed brown finish. Model: FTOP-PT12-BS1-BB-BL-NO Top: Reclaimed Burmese Blackwood, bleached natural oil Base: Sand-cast brass, brushed brown Dimensions (Diameter x Height) : 160 x 74 cm / 58.2 x 29.3 inch. P. Tendercool FTOPs – Fantastic tables, benches made with old planks Bespoke, handmade tables/benches made with reclaimed wood; sand-cast bronze, brass or aluminum bases Reclaimed wood While P. Tendercool may not be greener than your average Martian, he does not kill trees! P. Tendercool, run by Belgians Pieter Compernol and Stephanie Grusenmeyer, is based in Bangkok, Thailand. We are ideally placed to go wood-hunting: every month or so we organize a sourcing trip along 2nd and 3rd generation wood shops in remote villages, meeting locals who buy up abandoned houses, rice-barns and forgotten structures, often dating back 100 years. While Thailand has no wood industry left, it was spoiled for choice and quality in the good ol’days. Some of the best exotic tropical woods were available and it is our Mission to score these and turn vintage floors, beams, and pillars into truly unique furniture. We buy our wood in very small quantities, often just enough for one table: truly reclaimed and truly unique furniture. Unique one-off Every FTOP table or bench we create is indeed unique, and this shows. We use traditional wood-working techniques to join massive beams and refrain from leveling the bottom of the table. We naturally sand to remove splinters but we want our clients to see we use genuinely old wood, not machine-made-to-look-to-be-reclaimed wood. The top-edges are the perfect witness, uneven, almost Brutalist at times, but always unique and very touchy-feely. Bottoms and tops will more often than not show imperfections we cherish: traces of the past: old wooden pegs, old joinery, some restored holes, all signs of the woods previous life. We also refrain from using big belt-sanders, which means you will see and feel our hands when you check the surface. And re-check. Re-check... Real wood, no veneers Very few pieces of furniture are still being created with real high quality hardwood. While we take every precaution and carefully match humidity levels with international standards, we can never forego the fact that wood is a living, breathing material which will be influenced by excessive temperature and humidity fluctuations. There is always a chance that wood will retract or expand slightly with the changing of the seasons. Rest assured: to date we only received two remarks from worried clients in eight years and in both cases, we advised how to remedy. Important notes Wood finish We have yet to come across the perfect wood-finish. Prior to establishing P. Tendercool in 2009 our family had been antique dealers for over 50 years. We know a thing or two about Old Wood. Eli, our antiques restorer from Belgium, flew over to train our Thai carpenters in traditional Western wood-finishing-techniques. While we can offer Wax, home-made Hot-Wax and are experts in true French Polishing, about 95% of our clients prefer an oil finish. Should you prefer a completely waterproof finish, you may opt for Water-based Polyurethane. All finishes have pros and cons. But fear not: no white gloves are needed to enjoy your furniture! Our furniture is meant to be used! Just use a bit of common sense: do not let spilled liquids sink in over-night, do not place hot pots and pans directly on the wood. Should you consider buying one of our creations we will explain the do's and don'ts in detail. Sand cast bronze, brass and aluminum We are wood-specialists. We outsource the casting of our metals to a true specialist: Armando is an Italian bronze-master who used to work for Salvador Dali way back when. Craft any-one? He moved his foundry from Monza, Italy, to Thailand now 30 years ago. His major client is the Vatican. We are truly blessed. He is currently training our team to ensure his vast experience will live on. Please note that the whole sand-casting process is also completely done by hand, step-by-step, for each base: a traditional and time consuming technique which, as the woodwork we offer, can never be 'Perfect." Our bases show traces of this technique: some air-bubbles remain in the metal, some weld-marks will be visible as will some tooling traces: brushed lines, some surfaces will be a bit more matte than others. Here too you will feel Real People's hands.

Customization Options

Top Finish: Bleached, Natural oil, Wax, Hot-Wax, French-Polished or even PU-waterbased finish \Base Finish:\Brass: Brushed Golden Sand & Brushed Brown\Aluminum: Brushed White, Brushed Natural, Brushed Charcoal, and Polished
