The Design

The Victoria Falls Bridge Side Server is a wonderfully designed piece that compliments the Victoria Falls Bridge Table. The elegant arched beam connects angled legs to support the suite of drawers below the beautiful Zambezi Teak top. The drawers are spacious and deep.

Material and construction.

The whole piece, including drawer bottoms and backplate, is constructed from solid Zambezi Teak, formerly known as Rhodesian Teak. The drawers are beautifully hand built using our unique sliding dovetail joint for the drawer fronts and stopped, or half blind dovetail joints for the drawer sides. The drawer slides are imported stainless steel roller bearing slides. The drop handles are solid brass, in the tradition of campaign furniture.

The arched connecting stretcher is built on a specially constructed jig by laminating one thin layer of teak onto another over a few days. The special hardwood glue used is thoroughly set before removal from the clamps. This gives a beam of exceptional strength and graceful curve.

Uses of the Bridge Side Server

This unique side server table will add class to your office, dining room or simply as a signature piece of fine furniture to be admired for the beauty of the timber and fine design. It partners very well with our Bridge Table and is often used as an office side board in conjunction with the Baobab Table. We have exported Bridge Side Servers to North and South America and Europe.

Looking after your Bridge Side Server.

Looking after your Bridge Side Server.

To protect your Bridge Side Server’s lacquered finish place it 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.

Guarantee

Guarantee

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.

The African Touch will not in any circumstances be liable for any claim which falls outside the scope of our warranty or for any consequential damages whatsoever.
