We have been producing the Safari Coffee Table with its accompanying side table for over a quarter of a century. The design is timeless and whenever we look to update it we find that our wonderful customers love the simplicity and clean lines of this piece. The whole piece is constructed out of solid African hardwood. The top is a solid slab 40mm thick. The legs are 70mm x 70mm sections. The result is a heavy coffee table, but once in position it is worth all the effort of placing it there! Custom sizes can be quoted on – please Contact Us if you would like a quote.
We use two of our exceptional African Hardwoods to handcraft these fine Safari Coffee Tables. Zambezi Teak, formerly known as Rhodesian Teak, is a very hard, dense timber. It has a beautiful rich red brown colour with interesting figured grain containing black flecks. Because of its hardness, it is difficult to work. We have developed methods of work to handle Zambezi Teak which include tungsten carbide tips to our tools and regular sharpening with diamond wheels.
The other timber we use is African Mahogany, harder and more durable than common mahogany. It has a more uniform colour and grain than Zambezi teak. Mahogany was traditionally used to make Safari and Campaign furniture.
