Looking for the perfect wooden furniture for your home? Or perhaps a gift? At Dink Wood, we create gorgeous, unique wooden furniture that will fit any decor and make a perfect addition to your home. Dink Wood is run by Julian, whose passion for creating wooden furniture for the past 20 years shows in every piece of his work.
One of Julian’s favorite pieces to make is the river table. This unique table is made by combining epoxy resin with wood. What’s so different about river tables is that we use wood that is full of cracks and holes, something most furniture makers would discard. But we see these features as giving the piece character. Additionally, we love the way that resin works to help preserve the tree’s story – warts and all!
How to Make a River Table
To make a river table, we take a slab of wood and cut it down the middle. We then take the outer edges and place them in the middle. The valley left over is filled with epoxy resin, which is either clear, blue, or another color of your choice. The point of the valley is to make it look like a river is flowing through the valley of the table. For wood that has a lot of character, lakes and ponds even form!
For smaller river tables, it is possible to finish them on both sides. You can then simply turn the table over for a fresh, new river look. It’s like having two tables in one! For your convenience, we can make these unique tables to whatever size you desire. Our customers love stools, side tables, hall tables, kitchen tables, and even banquet river tables. Give us your specifications and we will meet the challenge!
