The process starts by going out into the woods and choosing the most promising trees. The selected oak 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 participate in the selection of the planks we need for your particular oak table. Our planks all have different expressions, so all oak tables from Kærbygård Plank tables are completely unique.

The oak tree is the Danes’ tree
Oak is a popular material for several reasons. It is a beautiful wood with a characteristic golden color and clear veins, and its grace is highlighted and enhanced only as time goes on and the wood works. In addition, it is an incredibly strong and durable wood. It takes a lot before oak breaks, which is why it is particularly suitable for tables and other furniture.
But it is not only the good properties of the wood that make it so beloved. The oak tree has a very special significance in Denmark, and the Danes have enjoyed the tree since the dawn of time.
There have been oak trees in Denmark since 7000 BC, and Denmark’s oldest tree is also an oak tree with the name Konge-egen. The tree is between 1500 and 1800 years old and with its advanced age is the oldest living creature in the country. In 2000, own was also named Denmark’s national tree for having stood in the shade of the beech tree for many years.
Oak has been of great importance to our society
Through the ages, the oak has helped to form the framework around our society. In the old days, oak was used as timber for building houses and warships, because even at that time its good properties were understood and recognized. In fact, the oak trees at that time were close to extinction in Denmark due to predation, because oak was such a popular building material.
Fortunately, the Danes were made aware of the need for oak trees, and an effort was made to grow more trees so that we would not run out of oak. What the Danes did not know was that wood would be replaced by even stronger building materials such as brick and concrete, and therefore there is today a healthy population of oak trees in the country, even though trees are regularly felled for commercial use.
However, oak is still a popular raw material and is used that day for e.g. floors, fences, barrels, chests and not least furniture and ornaments. So when we at Kærbygård work hard to preserve the tree’s original expression, it is because we want to honor its history and heritage.
At Kærbygård , we have various carpenters in the staff, including furniture, machine and building carpenters. Our skilled staff means that we can handle all design tasks, whether you want a simple or extraordinary plank table. Feel free to contact us for a non-binding talk.
