A long table is – as the name suggests – a long table. However, this does not mean that you can only get a long table in very long models. Many people choose to buy a long table in wood in the size that suits the needs of everyday life and fits perfectly in the room in terms of size.
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.

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.

The process: from wood to long 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 long tables from Kærbygård are completely unique.
