Specialist Wood Turner Expertise Demonstrated
As specialists in Turning, Haldane UK was recently approached and asked if they could machine a contemporary solid cylindrical table base with deep grooves for one of the country’s leading shopfitting companies who was working on the fit-out of a large casino in Glasgow.
Expertly constructed by time served craftsmen, this project once again demonstrated the unrivalled quality and accuracy that Haldane is capable of producing.
And with experience in wood turning since 1946, Haldane was delighted to manufacture the 32 table base in European Oak using a unique jointing system that used the weight of the table to provide the stability.
A naturally heavy timber, European is an ideal choice for a table base that needs to be sturdy and steady however one disadvantage of using European Oak is that it contains tannic acid which can corrode fittings and in turn stain the wood surface.
Haldane’s jointing system provided the perfect solution with an immaculate and seamless finish without the need to use any fixings.
Haldane UK’s Managing Director, Forrester Adam, said “As well as being the market leader for continuous handrails, we have a long and proud history of providing specialist turning services to the superior standards that we are synonymous with.”
He continued, “Our knowledge of timber and its machining capabilities are second to none and when it comes to these types of projects, clients can benefit from over 60 years of timber machining experience to find the right solution to their projects.”
