Oak, because it’ll look more than good in your home. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there – which means no two tables will ever look quite the same – but overall, it’s a well-balanced timber.
Sheldrake is finished with our treatment oil – IsoGuard® – to make it easier to live with. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there. IsoGuard® comes in a few finishes; this one’s Seasoned Oak and it gives Sheldrake a subtle, silvered colour – like naturally weathered timber.
As big as Sheldrake gets, it looks light and airy because we’ve slimmed down every aspect. It’s also full of curves, whether it’s the turned legs, the oval ends, or the rounded edge to the top, which makes it a good kitchen table because it’ll soften the look of cabinetry.
How it extends
Sheldrake’s ends simply slide out, carried on dovetail-jointed oak rails. As many of the leaves as you’d like can then be slotted into place (they’re stored in a useful bag so they don’t add bulk). It’s an easy thing to do, but you’ll need another pair of helping hands to manoeuvre the other side.

Taking care of Sheldrake
The timber in this design is finished with IsoGuard® – our innovative protective formula that helps to stop spills from leaving a stain. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to care for a design that’s treated with IsoGuard®, but we have created a few products that can help. You’ll find all these here.
