Devising your personal table design
Our helpful tips can assist you in the planning of your table product
Now that your ideal table model has been chosen, you can start to adapt it further to meet the demands of your home or workspace. The beauty of a Pickawood product is that unlike mass-produced store purchased items, our furniture pieces are designed and planned with you specifically in mind. Our helpful insights and tips will help you to plan effectively with care and consideration. Modify your table's dimensions, combine different materials or add additional accessories and features to ensure that your furniture piece is truly working for you.
Optimizing your table dimensions
Our table configurator enables you to adapt the dimensions and measurements of your selected table model. You can enter your required dimensions to ensure that your custom-made table product fits perfectly in your desired space.
You can easily adapt the measurements of your pre-set table design to your specific length. To ensure order maximum stability for your product, we recommend a table top surface thickness of 4 cm thick for particularly long tables. On average a single person will need approx. 50-70 cm of space for comfort when seated.
The average height for a dining table is 75 cm. A distance of 30 cm from the seat height to the table height is ideally recommended. If your chairs have a seat height of 45 cm, you should choose a table height of 75 cm. If you are planning a table with a frame, we recommend planning 1-2 cm more. Coffee tables have a height of approx. 30-50 cm.
Your ideal seating arrangement
The illustrations below emphasize the flexibility of our custom-made table models and they can be used for many occasions. Whether you require a stable surface for work or entertainment purposes the possibility to adapt your product means that you can plan for both important board meetings and extravagant dinner parties. Choosing to integrate a table extension into your configuration, which is available on select table models also means that you can host large parties of guests, as well as smaller more intimate occasions.
As illustrated in the graphics below, our custom-made table designs offer a wealth of seating options. You can also choose to integrate an extendable tabletop into your configuration, which allows for heightened flexibility. The possibility to adapt your product means that you can plan for extravagant occasions, as well as smaller more intimate gatherings.

Table top thicknesses
Our made-to-measure table tops are produced from continuous slats that range from approx. 5-8 cm in width. To ensure safety and stability for our products, we use solid wood with a thickness of 3 cm or 4 cm and MDF with a board thickness of 2 cm or 3 cm. The edge bevel is 2 mm as standard.
Stability and durability
We pride ourselves on manufacturing table tops that are solid and stand the test of time. In order to prevent the swelling and shrinking of the solid wood panels that are used to create your product, we recommend integrating a burr strip to maximize stability. Alternatively, you may wish to connect your table top to a fixed metal frame.
Your choice of solid woods
With our diverse range of different wood species, you can be sure that there is a material that meets your style and taste. Our wood products are sourced from sustainable forestry and stand the test of time. You are guaranteed high-quality with each of our wood types, so add the finishing touches to your product with our premium materials.
Determine the perfect table edge
Deciding on a suitable table edge for the surface of your bespoke table design can really add a heightened layer of charm to your custom-made product. One of the benefits of our service is that your can tailor your furniture piece to your style and taste to get create a truly individual look. We offer 4 different options, each offering its own personal appeal and charisma.
Normal table edge
Our normal table edge is probably the most common edge shape. The bevel edge is 2 mm.
Natural table edge
The natural wood edge is how nature created it. Only the bark is removed and carefully reworked.
Round table edge
This stylish edge is rounded with a radius of 100 mm so that the corners are gently curved.
Swiss table edge
The Swiss edge tapers towards the underside of the table top, creating a modern trapezoidal look.
Selecting the perfect legs and bases
Selecting from one of our unique preset table models offers you a choice of differing table leg options. Each exclusive model has been designed with style and functionality in mind and that is why each item has slightly different custom features. Depending on your model choice you can select from different custom leg finishes and materials, such as rounded legs, raw steel baseplates, or powder-coated steel. We have provided an insight into these features here but for even more options and to see which features can be adapted for specific table models, be sure to view our large format table and coffee table collections above to find the ideal product for you.
