FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Reclaimed wood is wood that has been salvaged and repurposed for a new use, such as in reclaimed wood tables, chairs, decor, and other products. Using reclaimed wood helps keep salvageable wood out of landfills; wood makes up roughly 20% to 30% of construction and demolition waste.
This wood has been properly processed, removing, running it through an industrial microwave to kill any pests, kiln-dried to an even moisture content and milled to uniform sizes before being used in new products, making it perfect to use in items for your restaurant.
Reclaimed wood is salvaged from old buildings that are being taken apart, giving perfectly good wood a second life. This material is typically of much higher quality than new wood because it was originally cut from old-growth forests, creating a much denser and stronger product than newer wood cut from newer sources.
Galvanized metal table tops tend to be very good at resisting daily wear and tear, as well as rust. However, we also offer a protective plastic cover for added protection if you’re concerned about keeping your metal table tops in top shape
Because reclaimed wood comes from a variety of sources, each of our reclaimed wood restaurant tables has a slightly different makeup. Our reclaimed wood table tops feature a mixture of reclaimed spruce, pine, fir, etc. Each table features a unique mix of wood, so each table will be unique.
The difference between our “straight plank” and “straight plank economy” table tops is in the design. Both are made for the same material but the economy tops will have a mix of widths, whereas the straight plank tops have 5” wide planks for a more uniform look along with a decorating reclaimed wood edge banding.
*Both are designed for indoor use only.
Our product is a great value because we make them in quantities of 50 to 100 per size, allowing us an economy of scale that nobody else can match. This means a more affordable product for you that meets and exceeds your quality standards.
Our tables are coated with a water-based urethane matte finish, making them fairly smooth. However, each table is going to have slight texture variations due to the nature of reclaimed wood. Each of our table tops will be slightly different, which is part of the beauty of reclaimed wood, and we suggest using a writing pad instead of writing directly on the surface.
