Acacia Wood Process
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.
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.
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.
