Handcrafted in our Devon workshop, The Lidster Oak Refectory Table is made from real wood and, better still, made from high quality reclaimed, salvaged oak, so you can own your new furniture content in the knowledge that no new trees were cut down to make it.   It is a rustic and charming piece of furniture.  


The timber is sourced as locally as possible to cut down our carbon footprint.  Your reclaimed oak wood table will be made from old beams and floorboards to provide a timeless, rustic charm.  They are solidly constructed to last a lifetime and each one is totally unique.    Only quality salvageable timbers are used to craft our tables - meaning the tables which are created will be long-lasting and sturdy.  Reclaimed wood furniture and reclaimed wood dining tables are considered to be investment furniture that will stand the test of time. 


The Lidster Oak Refectory Table features a smooth, sturdy and durable table top measuring approximately two inches thick and is beautifully finished with elegant turned legs.  The tables are hand waxed in a medium oak finish and we then apply a coat of beeswax polish before despatch.


Because reclaimed oak is often distressed and marked by the passage of time, a refectory table made from this material will usually feature imperfections such as nicks, knots, scratches, or uneven surfaces. These imperfections are part of the table's character and lend it a sense of history and authenticity and should not be deemed a defect.   Because oak trees can take well over one hundred years to grow and live for more than 300 years, their timbers are much stronger, heavier and denser than those of pine trees. Oak is much less prone to scratching or denting.


Our Reclaimed Lidster Oak Refectory Table is a versatile piece of furniture that can work well in a variety of interior styles, from farmhouse to modern.  It provides a warm and inviting gathering place for family and friends and can be paired with a range of seating options, from benches to chairs.  Our Reclaimed Lidster Oak Refectory Table is a unique and charming addition to any home.


Crafted with great care and attention, every table is made to order with a lead time of approximately 5 - 6 weeks.    If you need your table by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our very best to accommodate your requirements. 


We are able to deliver to UK Mainland addresses.  We use a professional two man team to deliver from Devon. These are very large and heavy items so please be aware delivery is to a ground floor location.   


The table is delivered in two sections; the frame/base and then the tabletop.  The top will need securing to the base with wooden fixings included, but we do recommend using an electric screwdriver for ease.  Assembly instructions will be provided.  


Our Lidster Oak Refectory Tables are made in the following sizes:- 

6ft x 3ft 6

7ft x 3ft 6

8ft x 3ft 6

Table Height:  Approximately 78/79 cm.  


Our reclaimed tables are approximately 78/79cm high and made to fit standard height chairs measuring from floor to seat of approximately 45cm to 46cm.   If you need your table to be made taller to accommodate taller chairs or stools, please let us know and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any queries at all with respect to chair / table height.  



Your reclaimed oak table will need nourishing from time to time with a coat of natural beeswax polish or clear wax.  We also ask our customers to give the tables a good buff with the pot of complimentary polish supplied once you have received it and it is in place (to help it settle in!)  Wood is a natural material that expands and contracts as it releases and absorbs moisture.  


The beeswax polish adds moisture and shine and keeps your table in tip top condition.  Please do not place your table in direct sunlight or next to a radiator as this can dry out the wood and cause cracks to appear.  


To prevent marks from plates, glasses and cups - we recommend coasters and placemats be used. Do not place hot dishes or plates directly onto your table - it is not heatproof.
