Tree Root Tables│Dining & Coffee

Tree root tables, constructed from sustainably sourced African hardwoods.  Furthermore, the process of unearthing a tree’s root system is no small task.  As a result Phases Africa works with a team of outstanding and knowledgeable woodworkers.  Therefor, all our stunning dining room, coffee as well as, conference tree root table bases are meticulously removed using top-of-the-line heavy equipment.  For the reason that, no damage to any part of the root will occur when the removal is professionally managed.  The root is then hauled to the workshop where it undergoes a proper cleaning, using a heavy duty sandblaster. Finally the root is meticulous sanded by hand before the finish wood treatments are applied.

The team of tree root miners, often disappear for weeks at a time, venturing deep into the African Bush in search of fallen trees with spectacular root systems.  The trouble is, often major parts of the tree’s root system are still hidden underground, although we only use trees that have fallen on their own account.   Above all we never cut down trees to use for the making our tree root table bases.  Even more, these professional woodworkers are very au fait at excavating the remaining roots still somewhat ensconced in the earth.  The first example of our tree root table bases is a stunning Coffee Table, made from African Hardwood called Leadwood Size: 1720mm (length) x 900mm (width) x 400mm (height.)
