The Stratton Group is established in Enschede, The Netherlands. We have over 15 years of experience in the wood industry and in 2014, we took the step to build an online store. In doing so, we do not have a showroom anymore, however, we now have a very large warehouse full of hardwood. This way we keep costs low and are able to offer hardwood at low prices. We love hardwood and we try to express this in everything we do.
All of the wood on our website is actually in stock. This allows us to order pick and deliver the garden wood very quickly. We pack all of the orders according to a fixed and coordinated process in order to maintain control over the quality and completeness of all of the orders. We value safe shopping and a good customer satisfaction very much.
We developed a useful calculation tool so you can quickly and easily make a choice that directly corresponds to the correct price:
Since we like to aim for a high customer satisfaction, we have put together an advisory team which allows you to ask questions in an easy and quick way.
All tree slab tables are stacked on top of each other in the pallet racks in our warehouse.
For that reason, there may be some dust or spots on the table.
We always make sure to sand the tables again so they look at their best.
If requested, we finish the table tops with a coat of varnish.
You can also opt for the untreated finish.
The thicker the table top, the more stable it remains. Furthermore, a table top of 8 cm looks fuller, but that is of course according to our own taste. The price of a 4 cm thick table top is always cheaper than one of 8 cm, which is logical since a 8 cm table top is twice as thick as a 4 cm hardwood table top. For a 4 cm table top, we advise a maximum span of 4.1 m and for a 8 cm thick table top up to maximum 6.1 m.
An oak tree slab table has a lighter weight and has a different appearance than a hardwood tree slab table. Hardwood has a finer grain and therefore has a flatter finish. Oak is more coarse-grained an therefore has a slightly less fine finish. European Oak is a hard wood, however not as hard as hardwood. This makes tropical hardwood more hard-wearing and therefore more vandal-proof. Oak table tops have their own look, different from hardwood. Both hardwood and oak wood should be dried correctly in case it will be used as table tops. If oak and hardwood are not dried correctly, the wood will become unstable and will twist and crack. Oak is cheaper than hardwood and that is what you see back in the price. It is up to your personal taste to choose the type of wood.
No problem. We can make every table smaller without charge. Just order the tree slab table you want, send us an email with your order number, tell us exactly how much you want to get cut (dimensions) it’s as simple as that!
Not one tree slab table is the same, therefore each table top is unique. If requested, we can seal a natural crack that could occur in a table top. This is completely free of charge. You can also choose to not change anything about it, which gives the table top an extra robust character.
A tear or crack in the table does not affect the solidity of the table top, hardwood and oak are so strong that even multiple cracks won’t affect the quality. Tables from the brand Huefter are indeed vandal-proof.
We sell slab table tops in the hardwood types Pedra, Tatajuba and Jatoba and in oak. They are all stable and sustainable types of wood, suitable for indoor use. You simply can’t use every type of wood to make a tree slab table! Not every type of wood is suitable! We have selected the best types of wood in hardwood and oak tables.
All of the wood for tables is dried and stress-free. We only sell the best tree slab tables.
Varnish is a type of lacquer which we have in a matte variant. This protects the wood from scratches, moisture and dirt. Since the varnish hardly changes the colour of the table, the natural charm of the wood remains intact and maintains its character. We always apply multiple coats of varnish, up to 4 or 5 separate coats, in order to ensure a good protection to the wood.
A tree slab table is heavy and not every frame can support this weight. Therefore, we have developed good and solid metal frames that give the table top good stability and that will reduce the chance of wood movement. However, this is not completely avoidable, it is always possible for a crack to appear, which is also the charm of wood. We have different models and colours of frames available. Each of them are mentioned on the web pages.
We also sell small sizes of tree slab table tops. They can be used as a coffee table, bathroom table or side table. These small tables are very ideal for DIY, you can make almost everything out of wood.
We have table tops in stock up to a length of 6.1 m. The most frequently sold tables are between 2 and 3.1 m long. If your long size can’t be found online, feel free to ask us about the possibilities.
A tree slab table used as a desk in your office is very ideal. They can be straight cut or with bark.
Every month a new stock of tree slab tables are delivered. Our stock has a minimum of 50 pieces. Not all of the tables can be placed online. So if you have a specific question, also about a size you can’t find online, please send us an email or call our Advisory Team. We are happy to help.
Our transporter delivers the table or table tops with a mobile forklift, as far as the forklift can go. The driver is on his own so he isn’t able to place the table in your house. If you order a table; today before 12:00 - then it already gets delivered tomorrow. If we apply varnish then it will get delivered within 3 business days if you order today before 12:00. Delivery at a later date is of course also possible in both cases. You can easily select your preferred delivery date in the shopping cart.
