Acacia Wood Process

Drying the Acacia Wood

After sustainably sourcing our Acacia wood, we begin our production process. We start by drying out the Acacia wood. This involves placing the slabs in a giant oven for several weeks to ensure the wood is completely dry and has no chance of warpage or cracking for decades.

Planing & Hand Sanding

Once the wood slabs are dry, we level each slab by planing them. Then, we hand sand the entire table to bring out the fabulous grain of the Acacia wood. This is the step that breathes life into the aesthetics of the slab.

Grain Alignment

If we’re joining slabs to make larger custom Acacia tables, we use slabs from the same tree. To guarantee a smooth, stunning flow, we align the wood grain as close as possible to optimize the aesthetics of each piece we craft.

Hand Lacquer Finishing

The finishing process begins when we apply a primer coat by hand. We then apply the finishing by hand. Once the finished coat is dry, we apply another coat to ensure an even finish every time.

Spray Finishing

After we apply a primer coat by hand, we apply the lacquer finishing. We do this using a hand-held sprayer, ensuring we evenly apply the finishing coat.

Spray Finishing Once More

Once that lacquer coat fully dries, we check the entire piece of furniture to ensure it’s totally coated. Then, we apply another lacquer coat for additional protection that guarantees each piece’s longevity.

Final Assembly

After everything is dry, we assemble the table to check the specifications. Once we’re sure the piece is perfect, the furniture is complete.

Photograph of Your Finished Product

We’ll send photos of the complete and assembled table for your approval. After receiving approval, we disassemble the table and professionally pack and crate it for shipping.

Packaging Layers 1, 2, 3 & 4

We begin our packing process with an initial layer of corrugated paper wrap. This is how we ensure your furniture doesn’t get scratched or damaged during transport.

After the first layer of protection, we wrap the table and legs again, adding a second layer of corrugated paper wrap.

Once we have two layers of corrugated paper wrap covering your furniture, we add a layer of protective foam wrap to the legs and table top for additional transport protection.

After applying protective foam to the Acacia wood slab and legs, we add thick protective cardboard layers to the slab and legs.


Packaging Layer 5: Cardboard Layer for Complete Table

We then add another layer of cardboard. At this stage of our packing process, your table will be completely covered and protected from any minimal damage.

Packaging Layer 6: Protective Crate Frame

The last step of our process is to encapsulate the furniture in a custom-made wood crate to provide the most protection possible. This is how we minimize the chance for damage during sea and land transport to your destination.

Picture, Documentation, & Paperwork

Once the packing process is complete, we send you photos of your packed furniture. Our shipper will then begin organizing all of the necessary documentation and paperwork to sea freight your custom Acacia wood furniture to you.

Flat Pack Crating

The majority of the furniture we ship overseas involves flat packing the table top and legs separate from each other. This reduces shipping costs, makes the furniture easier to lift, and offers the most protection for transport.
