  • Resin River Tables - Two Customer Projects

    We love to receive photographs from our customers of the wonderful things they have made from timber we supply them. Below are two unique examples of resin river tables from two very talented customers.

    We love the way Karl has created the appearance of a rocky headland by using the burr of the elm contrasted with a striking neon blue resin. The fleck in the resin creates the appearance of a moving body of water - absolutely stunning.

    For the Star Wars fans among you, Adi Barber has created a unique live edge English elm coffee table. The table is inlaid with a glow in the dark Millennium Falcon. We love its quirky design and the partnering of natural timber with a contemporary motif.
