Andy Thornton has recently introduced solid ash table tops to its extensive furniture product range, which have been specified at Uno Spanish Tapas in Sutton, Surrey. The solid timber tops look striking when matched with cast iron table bases and contemporary chairs, and have been designed to complement almost any table and chair combination.
Solid ash is a light-coloured, durable and hard-wearing material. The surface features a distinctive open grain, which is further emphasised when the material is carefully hand finished.
Ash table tops are given a striking aesthetic with a straight-edge profile, whether in chunky 45mm-thick timber, or in thinner 32mm and 25mm formats.
The tops are offered in a wide selection of sizes to suit most applications, from 600mm circular to 1200 x 800mm rectangular formats. Other sizes can be manufactured to order.
The unique finish to the ash tops is achieved by carefully wire brushing the untreated timber by hand, before adding a stain and patina colour along with two coats of contract-grade, flat-matt lacquer. The finish highlights and enhances the distinctive grain, while providing all-round durability.
