Cask 59 Dining Set

The 2014 flagship of our whisky cask furniture range. This dining set has been in development for quite some time, and after numerous versions and ideas, has been finally distilled into the finished product you see in the photos. Truly magnificent to look at, and to sit down at - a spectacular and graceful creation.

The Table

The solid oak table has been carefully crafted using the best quality native character oak. The centre piece of the table is a device made from an arrangement of sliced of staves of retired whisky casks formed into a mosaic layout combining the notched cask staves into a circular, almost Celtic, device as the table's centrepiece.

The Chairs

The elegant high backed chairs are predominantly made from quality native oak, but the darker sections are made from the staves of genuine retired whisky casks. The oak has been carefully machined by our craftsmen to taper the legs and the chair back from rounded circles down into fine ellipses. The blackened outer side of the cask wood is used sparingly to create the colour contrast and the burnt, inner side of the cask has been left in places for effect.

Furniture

As our furniture tends to be large, heavy, and require careful handling, we use a specialist furniture removals company to fulfil our orders. This means that there will be at least two delivery people, and that they will be able to safely carry the item of furniture into your home and then into the specific room in which it is due to reside. For furniture, our system includes this additional 'luxury' delivery service automatically on checkout. The cost of delivery is therefore priced to reflect this high level of service.

Mirrors

Thankfully for mirrors we don't have to send two men in a van, we can package it up in a protective box wrapping and send it anywhere in the UK. For mirrors and other small items, your normal refund and return rights under the Distance Selling Regulations apply. See the Ts & Cs for more information.

Delivery Cost

The delivery cost for this individual item of furniture is;

£ 400.00

Each item ordered online has it's own express delivery price, they will be added together on checkout.

The reason we do not routinely use a courier / transport company for our furniture deliveries is because normal couriers would ship the furniture in a vehicle manned by a single driver, equipped with a forklift. The delivery would only be made as far as the front door. This would be a major inconvenience for the majority of our customers.

However, if you would like such a service then you can get in touch and we will arrange it, we will happily pass on the reduction in the delivery charge to you. If you are able to pick the item up from our workshop then you can select this option in checkout, naturally that is free.

Important Note:Your delivery selection option will have ramifications on your entitlement to refunds should you decide to return the goods. Please read our Terms and Conditions in full.

Measurements

Our craftsmen are some of the best around – but there will be some small tolerances of a few millimetres on the exact dimensions of the item produced versus the sizes quote on the product description. As such all measurements should be treated as approximate and we will not accept any liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of the product you receive being precisely the same as the sizes in the description. Please let us know if you have extremely exacting sizing requirements. .

The Wood Itself

Our furniture is made from the very best native hardwood. It is a natural material so there will be slight variations in appearance between the woods used in the item. There may also be variation between the colours in the item you receive and the colouring of the item in the photo, which is used for illustration only. This is a good thing! Your piece of furniture is totally unique and there will not be another one like it – that's because the wood used in it is totally unique, every bit special and individual, with it's own story and history.

If you don't want that then don't buy hardwood furniture, buy something made of plastic or MDF.

The wood will have burrs, pippy areas, maybe cracks and some splits. In some cases we use special fillers to create features (resins with items entombed, metal polymer fillers etc – you can request this kind of thing if you like). It's all part of the art of manufacturing using natural hardwood.

Leather

If you are purchasing an upholstered product ie a chair or chairs made from leather, remember that leather is a natural product too and there will be colour variations and natural marks.
