Extraordinary plank tables
Buying a plank table is a matter of trust. At Kærbygård, we want our customers to have trust in our products and the work we put in to create beautiful, functional, and unique furniture.
Many factors come into play when creating products of such high quality. It is not enough to have a piece of oak wood with beautiful grain. The tree must be cut correctly and subsequently stored under controlled conditions to prevent the timber from becoming warped and cracked.
Therefore, our warehouse and workshop have a constant temperature. This ensures the planks have time to dry correctly. It takes quite a while, but the process is necessary to achieve a perfect result.
Next, our skilled and experienced craftsmen select planks suited for a table that is to be displayed in the showroom – a table you might end up buying.
If you have certain wishes for the look of the planks, the size of the table, or the finishing details, we will, of course, take these into account. In consultation with you, we will find the perfect planks for the job.
When looking at your finished plank table for the first time, all the little details might slip past your mind. But it is these little details that make the table appear harmonious. At Kærbygård, we are all about the details because they are what makes the difference between a mediocre result and an excellent result.
From tree to table
A lot of the oak wood used for the plank tables comes from trees on our farm. In the forest, the best trees for furniture production are selected. Then we cut the trees and transport the timber to the workshop. Here, we sort the timber and assess it's quality, after which the timber is cut into planks.
The planks are then air dried. A basic rule is that the planks must dry one year per inch of thickness to achieve the correct level of humidity. This is important for the next process, which is kiln drying.
Kiln drying takes between two and three months. During the process, the temperature is closely monitored. Only then can the planks be stored in the warehouse, where they are acclimatized. Thereafter, they are ready for use in the woodworking workshop where the plank tables are made. The workshop is also heated to ensure the production proceeds in optimal conditions.
In the workshop, the furniture pieces are crafted by skilled woodworkers. Our staff is professional and dedicated to delivering the best products on the market. We are proud of our employees who make an effort every day to create beautiful furniture pieces for our customers.
The finished furniture pieces should also be taken care of. Both the plank tables in our showroom and the ones waiting to be shipped are stored at constant temperatures.
