Our Finishes

Oiled Finishes.              

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, these signs of wear become an appealing part of the table because it allows 'history' in the form of patina to develop over time.             
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.   

Your oiled finish dining table will develop a beautiful aged appearance that will be considered priceless in years to come and will be enormously valued  by everyone in your family.
The oil product that is currently being used  requires very little if any maintenance.

Lacquered Finishing:

Although we sing the praises of oiled finishes very highly, in certain situations a hard wearing two pack or polyurethane 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.  

Colouring Timber:

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.
