The Wood Place

We at the wood place specialize in the industrial look of furniture such as big tables manufactured from hard wood slabs such as teak, mahogany, matumi, chamfuti etc. some of these hard wood slabs are up to 5m long and 1m wide. These hard wood tops together with steel pipe or steel leg sets provide the ultimate in the industrial look.

The wood place has gone from strength to strength since arriving in Kyalami. Our showroom is now the biggest furniture outlet in town and our factory already produces enough for us to be looking for other distribution outlets for our range of industrial furniture and hard wood tree slabs, discs and furniture products such as tables.

We offer the most exquisite ranges of outdoor rustic, or indoor handcrafted household furniture as well as boardroom tables, bars and kitchen units out of the hard wood and railway sleeper.

Preserving The Enviroment

The wood place team only source local wood mainly from Limpopo and Mpumalanga province, we also only cut dead trees. This contributes to the local community’s economy and job creation as well as environmental sustainability. These hard wood trees are cut into slabs (or slices) and discs by using a chainsaw and then loaded onto trucks for transport to our factory in Kyalami, Midrand, Gauteng. The hard wood live edge furniture can be designed in any size as these giants of trees were over 4m in lengths and 1m+ in diameters. Once the hard wood trees are cut into slab or disc format, coffee tables, dining tables or other furniture pieces can be made.

Work Specialization

The furniture is worked on by hand and goes through a 6 phase sanding process, we also treat the hard wood with a sanding sealer. However we can upon request also varnish the furniture.
