Buying Guide

To choose a table that will fit your home and lifestyle perfectly, please consider the following:

 

Size

How big is your space, and how many people do you want to seat? Think about how many people are sitting around your table most days of the year. A generous place setting is 24''. You will also want to consider the chairs that you will use with the table to ensure they will fit comfortably between the legs of the table.

Wood

When considering wood options, you may decide based on color preferences or on character. We build with high quality hardwoods, including Poplar, Oak, Cherry, Maple and Walnut, and can source a wide variety of other options if you’re interested in a specific species you don’t see on the website. We also specialize in Reclaimed Woods, including Pine, Oak, Fir, and Chestnut, which can be sourced from places like old barns, silos, train stations. The appeal of reclaimed wood is its depth of character and the beauty inherent in reusing materials with a past life. Reclaimed wood will often include features such worm holes, nail holes, and deeper color variation. If you like a lot of character in your wood, reclaimed may be a great choice for you. If that is a concern, call us to talk through what to expect! Every source of reclaimed wood is different, so each batch can vary significantly from the last, ask us for photos or samples of our current batch!

 

Everything Else

When it comes to other options for your table, there’s always room to share your ideas with us if there’s something you want but don’t see on our website. 

 

Common Questions

How long will it take to build my table? Our standard lead-time for custom tables and seating is 3-4 weeks for production + delivery. If you have a project that requires a quicker turnaround, or a specific delivery date we will do our best to meet your needs. When your piece leaves Urban Reclaimed Co., we will let you know it’s on the way, and our partners will be in contact with you directly to schedule a delivery time that works best for you. How do I Care for my Table? We strongly believe in the table as a place where life happens, and not a showpiece to be protected from signs of use! We think the table is at its most beautiful when over time it shows signs of a life well-lived around it, and the markings of many meals shared. We do know that most of us want our table to look beautiful though, and we can give you some tips on keeping it looking fantastic along the way! For everyday care we recommend using a clean, soft cloth and mild soap and water or a natural cleaner. For quick and easy repairs or maintenance, a quick buffing with a generic furniture wax (found at any hardware store) will help bring back the original shine.
