Plank table in elm wood
elm wood is a very luxurious type of wood that is difficult to obtain in Denmark. Kaerbygaard carpentry therefore offers a unique product. Most of our wood comes from local forestry and forestry around the old Danish estates and castles.
Problematic elms provide unique plank tables
Unfortunately, 20 years ago the beautiful Danish elm wood was plagued by Dutch elm disease. As a result, Danish elm is difficult to obtain today.
In the autumn of 2017, Pia (8th generation on the farm) attended a party where she got to talk to a farmer from southern Jutland.
It turned out that during the elm disease he had cut down a whole avenue of Danish elm, which he had since stored in his barn. We were lucky enough that the farmer was willing to sell us his stock, which means that today we can offer beautiful solid wood furniture in Danish elm wood.
Danish elm has an amazingly beautiful game, which cannot be compared to American elm. If you are interested in elm furniture, for example 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 for plank table
The course starts by us going out into the forest and choosing the most promising trees. Then the selected elms are felled, and before they become a tabletop, they are driven 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 use for your elm table. Our planks all have different expressions, so every elm table from Kaerbygaard is unique.
