Our Finishes

Our 100% Natural Oiled Finish
At Eclipse Handcrafted Furniture we pride ourselves on building tough, durable dining tables for everyday use. We build tables that suit the busy modern family lifestyle. Our tables can be used and enjoyed by a family without the fear of little marks and scratches ruining the appearance. Of course little signs of wear and tear are going to occur, nothing is going to stop that from happening of course but the important thing is that the finish on your table allows the  table to 'age nicely'.
And that's exactly what we specialise in making.

This very liveable aspect of our dining tables stems from two things, one is our unique 100% natural oil finish and the other is the fact that we specialise in using dense Australian hardwood timbers sourced in a very eco friendly manner. Our oiled finish is a totally non coated finish. When you sit at one of our dining tables you'll be in contact with wood, just pure natural wood, not a 'plastic' coating over the top.
Buying a table with a coated finish is a bit like buying a new car, they look great when they're brand new but inevitably little signs of wear and tear start to appear and over the years that happens more and more and there's really nothing you can do about it, short of sanding it all back and having a new coating applied at some point in the future.  
An oiled finished dining table will develop a 'nice used' look which is something that actually enhances the appearance of the table, whereas a coated dining table will develop a 'bad worn' look over time. Simply put,  an oiled finish will allow your table to develop a beautiful worn aesthetic over time.

Your oiled finish dining table will accumulate a 'history' that will be unique to your family and this beautiful aged appearance will be considered priceless in years to come and will be enormously valued especially by everyone in your family.
The product we are using now requires very little maintenance but we still provide an after care kit with each table so any little marks and scratches can be minimised by  rubbing over the surface with some oil and very fine steel wool if they bother you.
