Suar - Each tree has a unique, long lasting story.
Made from one of the most durable hardwood, the suar wood, the suar wood slabs are a natural beauty with wavy patterns and striking grains. Thanks to the enormous size of the suar tree, these table tops can be made in a single plank as wide as one metre, keeping all the patterns and texture in its original natural state.
The Suar trees we sourced are not the ones the primarily grown and harvested for furniture. They are a byproduct of their first life and past their most productive years and would be otherwise discarded. The trunk is left intact; still alive, it generates baby suar over time.
All our Suar tables are handcrafted and left with rough live edges to keep the natural shape and beauty of the wood. Even all the imperfections such as hairline cracks, knots, crevasses, and grooves are intentionally left visible to create this rustic, weathered and distressed look. The large size Suar tables make perfect dining tables for your living room or conference room.
The suar table we carry is a piece of one solid slab, size from 6ft to 10ft. The shapes are following the shape of the tree. Since each tree has a unique shape, there is no identical table and each of them has its own unique natural mark. All one-of-a kind. They have an average of thickness of 9cm.
In Thailand, Suar trees are an edible and medicinal plant. The seeds are astringent to boil drinking water, cure diarrhea and wound healing, wound infections. The fresh leaves can be dried to make tea.
Suar Table Durability
Due to its crisscrossed interlocking grains, Suar wood is resistant to cracking from wood movement and is highly sought-after for its robustness. Moderately heavy but extremely strong, Suar wood is highly resistant to decay and dry-wood termites. These characteristics make Suar wood highly favourable in fine furniture making compared to other woods.
