Our 100% Natural Oiled Finish.
We pride ourselves on building tough, durable dining tables for everyday
use. We build tables that suit the busy
modern family lifestyle.
As co- owner of the business Ross Triffitt states, "Our tables in oiled
finishes can be used and enjoyed by a family without without having the
constant fear of little marks and scratches ruining the appearance. Of
course wear and tear over time is inevitable, it's going to occur but the
important thing is that the finish on your table allows the table
to 'age nicely'. So what does that mean ? It means all those
little signs of wear are not going to detract from the beautiful
appearance of the table, strangely enough they can even add to it, they
become an appealing part of it." It develops a nice patina over
A good analogy of this is when someone buys a new expensive pair of
leather boots or a nice leather coat or jacket, they're so much nicer to
wear after a bit of use and they have worn in a bit and they look better.
This way of looking at normal wear from normal use is closely related to
the ancient Japanese ideology called Wabi Sabi.
This very 'liveable' aspect of our dining tables stems from two things,
one is the 100% natural oiled finish and the other is the fact that
Eclipse specialises in using dense Australian hardwood timbers.
When you sit at an Eclipse dining table you'll be in contact with wood,
just pure natural wood.
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 oil product that is currently being used requires very little
if any maintenance.
Although we sing the praises of oiled finishes very highly, in certain
situations a hard wearing two pack lacquer is a better way to go. One
example of this is when a table is to be stained in a darkish colour and
in more commercial situations where hired cleaners are going to be
looking after the table.
Unfortunately timbers don't come in a big array of colours and tones,
mother nature hasn't kept up with the latest looks and trends so yes we
do offer the service of altering the natural timber colours into whatever
someone might want.
