New oak wood
The oak tables at Table du Sud are available in both “new” and “lived” oak. Although these tabletops are made of the same quality oakwood, they have a different finishing. New oak is not brushed and next to this its knots are filled, which gives the table a smooth feeling. These new oak tables appear calmer and more modern.
New oak is filled by default. Filling knots is usually done with an oak-coloured paste that colours along with your table’s colour. There’s also the option to pick a black filling.
You can decide to have your table brushed. Although the surface will be slightly less smooth, the blade itself will have a more defined structure. Brushing is carried out with heavy machinery, which may chip some little pieces of filling. Unfortunately, we cannot prevent this, so if you prefer a sealed table, opt for a non-brushed blade. Additionally, every plank has its own hardness, so one plank may display more structure than the other.
