Do-it-yourself Table Restoration Kits

wood carving

Our DIY table kits have everything you need to restore your garden table. The full kit comes with timber slats, all necessary braces, straps and screws. Or, if you don't need a full kit, you can pick and choose which items you want when you place your order. All our kits include a simple assembly guide.

The slats are all pre-drilled and rounded. The drilled holes are 8mm in diameter, offset 18mm to centre from the ends. If your table ends are 26"-27" wide and have a flange with 10 holes, then our standard kit will be ideal for you.

The timber is iroko and is planed, rounded and pre-drilled. It can be either be treated with a base coat of teak oil or supplied untreated. Iroko is also known as African teak since it shares many of the properties of teak, including the colour. It is a very durable hardwood, ideally suited to our climate.

  1. What is included with the kit?
    The kit comprises everything you need to restore your item. Included is a set of wooden slats, braces, strap, bolts, nuts, washers and screws.
  2. Do I need the strap and braces?
    Yes you do in order to properly restore your item. If you have salvaged them from the old table that's fine, but otherwise you will need to replace them. The centre strap unites all the slats together and the braces stop lateral sway (the slop syndrome).
  3. Can I buy the slats with just the bolts/just the braces/just the strap, but not the full kit?
    Yes, you can order whatever kit parts you need. When you order, you will have the option to pick and choose what's included in your kit.
  4. Can you supply loose replacement slats?
    Yes, we can. These are supplied undrilled in case your centres don't match the supplied kit. We recommend you check the length as sometimes it can be 1220mm. These are supplied at no extra cost.
  5. What size are the slats?
    The standard table slats are 1350mm long x 60mm x 21mm.
  6. Can I varnish or use a saddolins type of colour/stain?
    We do not recommend either of these treatments unless you adore flaky wood and love maintenance.
  7. Do the slats come treated?
    The slats are all iroko wood and can be supplied untreated, or treated with a base coat of teak oil. You can chooose which when you order.
  8. Do you provide assembly instructions?
    Yes, a simple guide to restoring your table is included with your pack. You can also download it here: table assembly guide.

    Dispatch is normally within 1 working day for stock items, or 2-3 working days for custom orders.
