The Baobab boardroom hardwood table is simply awe inspiring! Indeed, it is named after the most impressive tree in Africa, the Baobab. It is a very heavy piece of equipment. The top is a massive slab of solid hardwood, up to 4 meters (13.5′) long and 1.5 meters (5′) wide, and up to 50mm (2″) thick, supported on great teak pillars, beams and trusses. The top can be ship shape (classic boardroom table shape), rectangular, oval or round (maximum 1.5 meters because of the weight of the top). The substructure comes disassembled and is very easy to assemble, to allow it to be moved into a room more easily.
Construction and Material
This solid wood boardroom hardwood table is built from one of the hardest, heaviest of African hardwoods, Zambezi Teak (also still known as Rhodesian Teak in some quarters).
Each table is carefully hand built over about 8 weeks. Timber is meticulously selected and matched, before the long process of laminating the top begins. This is done a few timbers at a time to ensure perfect joints that will last for generations. The finishing process is long and painstaking, with the whole structure being hand sanded over a week. All boardroom hardwood tables are made to order, so please allow for this lengthy process. That being said, they are very reasonably priced as we supply direct from the factory, at prices lower than tables made of much inferior man-made boards and veneers.
The Baobab Boardroom Hardwood Table has been used in a number of applications – as dining tables, office table, reception tables, conference tables and naturally boardroom tables.
Richard Lowe designed the Okavango Leather Carver and Chair specifically for this magnificent table. However, the leather upholstered Safari High Back Chair is also very popular with the table.
