Shipping:

Due to the size and weight of our dining tables, items will be crated and shipped through one of our trusted shipping partners. We will communicate directly with you to determine best shipping costs and services for your area.

How much do the tables weigh?

Small table top – 38″ x 84″x 1.5″thick weighs approximately 110 pounds

Large table top – 42″ x 90″x 1.5″thick weighs approximately  133 pounds

Table legs weigh between 30 to 60 pounds each.

Lead times:

INGOT tables are built to order. Fabrication lead time is generally eight to twelve weeks. Shipping transit times are in addition to fabrication time and vary by distance. Orders can sometimes be completed within a shorter lead time for an expediting fee on a case-by-case basis.

Residential deliveries:

Our freight services are equipped for “lift gate” delivery which will aid in getting the product crates to the ground level.

Local pick-up:

All Ingot products are available for local pick-up in the Portland, Or. area. Local blanket wrap delivery services are also available.

Installation:

Detailed installation instructions will be provided with your shipment.

Professional installation is desirable as the table elements are quite heavy –see above notes regarding weights

Owner installation and assembly of our tables is possible though we generally recommend at least two able bodied persons for a safe and efficient installation.

Walnut tops:

Ingot table tops are made from high quality Eastern and Western walnut. Tops are edge laminated lengthwise from random width boards – board widths average 4″ to 7″.

Eastern Walnut: Eastern Walnut is generally more regular in grain and darker in coloration than Western walnut. Eastern walnut will possess more regularity of appearance between boards. As in all wood, minor checks and knots do occur naturally and will be filled with black epoxy.

Western Walnut: Western walnut or “Clairo” walnut is typically lighter and brighter than Eastern walnut with more “figure” and irregularities in the grain. Western walnut is higher in cost than Eastern, and is sometimes more difficult to source. As in all wood, minor checks and knots do occur naturally and will be filled with black epoxy.

Product care:

Our walnut tops are finished with furniture oil which is a blend of tung, linseed, soy and citrus solvent. 
We recommend treating your wood top with Feed-n-Wax furniture finish as twice annually for basic maintenance.

Moisture and heat can damage any wood finish. Protect your furniture by using coasters and trivets. Always wipe up moisture promptly and dry with a soft cloth.

Avoid dragging sharp or rough objects across the surface of your wood furniture. Use adhesive felt pads, trivets, coasters and placemats to help prevent scratches.

Avoid direct contact with rubber bumpers and candle wax as it may react with the wood’s finish and leave a stain.

Wood will expand and contract with seasonal humidity changes. Maintain consistent humidity levels to minimize movement in the wood and prevent warping.

Over time, air and sunlight will change the color of natural wood. Occasionally rotate the items placed on your wood furniture to allow a more uniform color to develop.

Custom bases, base finish, table top sizing or wood species:

We are happy to offer quotations on custom variations and sizes and finishes for our dining bases. We are also able to create custom metal bases in designs beyond our basic offerings. Custom table top sizes and wood species quotations are also available upon request.
