Problematic elm trees provide unique plank tables
20 years ago, the beautiful Danish elm tree was unfortunately plagued by elm disease. This has meant that Danish elm is difficult to obtain today. In the autumn of 2017, Pia (8th generation on the farm) participated in a party where she talked to a farmer from southern Jutland.
It turned out that during the elm disease he had felled an entire avenue of Danish elm, which he had since stored in his barn. We were so lucky that the farmer wanted to sell us his stock, which means that today we can offer delicious solid wood furniture in Danish elm wood
Danish elm has a fantastic game, which can not be compared to American elm. Are you interested in elm wood furniture, e.g. a beautiful long table in elm wood, we always recommend a visit to one of our showrooms, so you can experience and feel the wood.

The process: from elm wood to plank table
The process starts by going out into the woods and choosing the most promising trees. The selected elm trees are then 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 take part in the selection of the planks we need for your elm wood table. Our planks all have different expressions, so all elm wood tables from Kærbygård completely unique.
