The tables of Mintar are made of Suar wood; This raintree grows in most tropical areas and grows fast, up to 1.5 meters per year. Because it is a common wood species, this is not a protected species. Often, these trees are harvested to make room for, infrastructure like roads or housing or even for smaller trees to continue growing. In addition, the use of these trees in the furniture industry prevents these trees from being burned by the local population. Our table tops also have the ‘Indonesian Legal wood’ certificate indicating that the trees used for our tabletops have been legally harvested.

Deponti slab tables can be finished using various methods, and the best treatment depends on your preferences and wishes. Are you happy with the colour of the table top?

Wood, in particular the one-part slab tables are a natural product. Cracks and imperfections in colour and shape can occur and also appear later and disappear again. A slab table is very sensitive to changes in weather conditions and in particular the humidity in the area. That is why we recommend keeping an eye on the humidity in your house. Does your house have central heating? If so, water bins attached to the central heating could be a simple solution. Another option could be a humidifier, to maintain a stable climate in your house.
To reduce the number of cracks to a minimum, we carefully dry the tables and apply metal pins in the width of the tabletops, to prevent cracks where possible. Cracks and imperfections that occur later, are no grounds for reclamation.
