All of our tables are made using the Highest Quality White European Oak. We are the only company worldwide that do not charge extra for White European Oak.
The Work & Eat Widthwise Leaves of the Phalanx are crafted using “Aircraft Plywood” made from birch. In comparison with our other tables, like the Councilor which features a higher count of leaves sitting on the inner ledge of the table made from Solid Wood, the Phalanx because of it’s minimalistic look and feel has 2-3 leaves (depending on the size) sitting on the arms rest area (player stations) covering the whole table thus making them larger and heavier but also waterproof.
Layers of plywood are bonded together in a hot press over hardwood cores of European Birch and are glued together with alternating right angles. This is what gives them both strength and durability and reduces the chances of the wood splitting when nailing at the edges while also ensuring a consistent strength across the entire length of the wood.
For the wide surfaces of the Phalanx’s leaves, plywood is a better solution because it is more durable than solid wood and less prone to bending and warping.
Limited to the Phalanx, we can offer a Special Patina Technique (we infuse metal particles – same as the table’s structure) into the wood graining, to create a seamless and more “Aggressive” look.
