  • What Is The Plonk Dining Table Made Of?

    The Plonk Dining Table is made of Australian plywood, specifically Hoop Pine plywood which has a blonde tone with very subtle grain. Being a plywood dining table, the Plonk can achieve great strength while still appearing light and minimal. This is thanks to the strength in the layers that make up the Australian Hoop Pine plywood. Plywood is a type of sheet material which is made of several thin layers of solid timber, pressed together with the grain direction alternating each time. This makes it extremely rigid for the thickness allowing us to create thin tops like the one featured on our Plonk plywood dining table.

    How many people can the Plonk Dining Table seat?

    The Plonk dining table is best suited to 4 people. It is offered in two sizes which is intended to give more options to suit particular spaces, rather than to provide a different number of seats. The smaller length dining table is the perfect small table for a breakfast nook or impromptu casual meeting room table. The larger length dining table is great for meals with close friends with lots of space in the middle for share plates.

    What makes the Plonk Dining Table unique?

    The best thing about our Plonk timber dining table is its strength. The Plonk plywood dining table is designed to stand strong with no wobble while still achieving a lightweight floating appearance. The Plonk rectangular dining table can achieve lengths up to 2.2m long and can support at least 90kg of weight in the middle of the table with no wobble or sag, that’s equivalent to a grown adult standing on the table! Even though the table top is only 1.2cm thick, the strength is thanks to the ribs mounted to the underside. We design with the material in mind, using its inherent properties to create durable and lasting pieces of plywood furniture.

    What Product Can I Pair With The Plonk Dining Table?

    The Plonk Dining Table is part of our suite of plywood timber furniture. So far this also includes the Plonk Dining Chair, which shares a lot of the same features and is made with the same timber materials as the Plonk Dining Table. This is a dining set you will be able to enjoy for decades. We have also recently released the Plonk Bench with or without backrest, perfect for casual dining or family settings. The Plonk Bench designs are also made from Australian Hoop Pine plywood and Tasmanian oak timber dowel. Tie it all together with the Plonk Bar Stool! Similar to the Plonk Dining Chair but with a slightly lower backrest and comfortable foot rails. Try choosing fun colours for your plywood timber dining suite to mix up your space while keeping a considered visual style!
