The Design

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.

Uses

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.

To protect your lacquered finish place furniture away from direct sunlight. Apply a good furniture wax or polish, initially twice a month, thereafter once a month. Apply sufficient to thinly cover the surface. As it dries (becomes dull) buff with a clean cloth until a beautiful sheen is achieved. Between waxings, keep the finish clean with a soft cloth or duster, and buff without wax.

We offer a 15 year warranty on your Bridge Server for any flaws in construction or material (except natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks etc.) Miss handling or inappropriate use of the product will invalidate the warranty.

We will supply you with our suggested care and maintenance guidelines to ensure life-long enjoyment of your furniture. However we cannot be held responsible for repairing / replacing this product if you don’t follow these guidelines.

We build with timber harvested from natural forests. The charm of this material is that no two pieces are exactly the same in colour, character or grain, and they will contain natural imperfections such as knots, stress cracks and so on that enhance their authenticity and attractiveness. As a result no 2 pieces will ever be identical and products may have natural imperfections. However, these will never be allowed to compromise the quality of construction of your piece.
