The dining table – the family’s natural gathering place
Decades ago, the dining table was a table that stood in the %22fine living room%22 and was only used to eat at when there were guests. Fortunately, this is no longer the case. Today, a dining table is much more than the table we sit at when we have to eat our meals; it has become a natural gathering place for the whole family in many situations. Over time, it has developed so that we Danes spend a lot of time at our plank dining table. This is due – as mentioned before – not only to the fact that it is a practical piece of furniture to sit on when we have to eat our meals. It also has to do with the fact that we are good at having fun – whether it is with the spouse, the boyfriend, the whole family with children or it is the friends who are gathered for a cozy get-together over a well-prepared meal.
The process: from wood to dining table
The process starts by going out into the woods and choosing the most promising trees. Then the selected elm trees, oak trees or walnut trees are felled, and before they become a table top, they are run through a thorough drying process – first outside, then in the drying oven. This process is done to ensure that the table does not split when it acclimatizes to your home.
Only the best or most special planks are selected to become table tops. Here you can participate in the selection of the planks we need for your particular long table. Our planks all have different expressions, so all dining tables from Kærbygård are completely unique.
Hear a little about the choice of oil and table legs:

When the need for a longer table arises in connection with many guests or the like, additional plates can be fitted. We make several different solutions within additional plates, so it is possible to find the solution that appeals to you the most. Typically, we choose a dark or black through-colored MDF or make the additional boards in the same carving wood, which is selected for the plank table.
With additional plates, you therefore have the opportunity to have a wooden plank table for everyday use – and at the same time a long table that can be extended when the need for many seats arises. Our additional plates are as standard 50 cm per piece. which is also the size we recommend. However, we can make additional plates in most sizes, both larger and smaller for an additional benefit – we naturally advise on this.
Wood is a natural product – and no two planks are exactly alike. At Kærbygård , we take pride in finding exactly the plank or planks that fit your table. Whether you want a fine and dense veining or a coarser and more rustic veining, we will help you find the planks that give a nice end result in accordance with your wishes.
In addition to the traditional square plank tables, we also make oval and round tables . These can be made as tables in planks at intervals or as glued table tops, whereby you achieve a smooth and dense board in solid wood.
We can also make a handmade carpenter sideboard in oak , which matches your plank dining table. It’s pretty nice actually.
Oak or other wood
The dining table has been given many new functions in the modern Danish family. This is where we play cards with friends on Friday night. This is where we play board games with the kids when the rain teases on Sunday afternoon – and this is where we sit when the kids need a little help with the teasing math.
This is also where we sit down when we have to dream about the next holiday trip – and find out if the budget is commensurate with the dreams.
It is therefore with great pleasure that we at Kærbygård manufacture the quality table that you and your family will gather around for many years to come – and that is why we are very happy to provide you with guidance and good advice regarding your new wooden dining table.
