The Shangani Table

From: $ 1,899.32

Each Shangani Table is individually crafted from the finest sustainable hardwood. The elegant yet solid hardwood table is made from Zambezi Teak, a very dense wood that is extremely resistant to biological attack and physical wear and tear. If looked after, it will last for many hundreds of years. Because of the immense weight of the timber, we recommend tops of no more than 50 millimeters thick. The magnificent supports are a study in how an engineered solution to a physical challenge -holding up a top that may weigh in at 400 kilograms – can be exceptionally attractive.

The Design

This superb solid hardwood table with double pillar legs and truss connection was designed by Richard Lowe in 1993. It is as popular today as it was back then. I applied an engineering solution to the problem of holding aloft a huge heavy solid timber top. The first Shangani office table we built was made from old railway sleepers (known as ties in North America). We used full thickness sleepers (120mm deep) for a top five meters by one and a half. When we weighed the completed table at the weigh bridge it came in at a whopping 1100 kilograms (that is 2400 pounds!). Hence the reason for the leg design! Our table tops now rarely exceed 400 kilograms, but the pillar and truss legs work beautifully and are a real joy to behold!

To protect your lacquered finish please place your table 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.
