Rectangular dining table
Solid Wood, Iron
The WOODSTOCK table has a 9-cm-thick tabletop in solid American walnut composed of wooden boards of different dimensions laced face to face and glued together. Because of their extraordinary thickness, these tops need a selection and drying process that is much longer than usually adopted for a top whose average thickness is 4 or 5 cm. The delivery-time of this item is therefore quite long– about 4-6 months depending on the availability of the material. We suggest you to contact RIVA Export Department to know the expected delivery-time.We remind you that wood is a “living” material, which will interact with the surrounding environment for the whole life of the furniture and be subject to heat and, above all, to different degrees of humidity. Too low a level of humidity (for example, in a room heatedby warm air blowing fans, wall heating systems or floor level heating coils, without proper humidification) can produce splits in the wood. Besides, we recommend not putting the table too near to direct heat sources like stovesor fireplaces and to maintain an ideal humidity level of between 50% and 55%. If small splits appear in the wood (caused by changes in the environmental conditions, asexplained above), they can be repaired using a special but commercially easily available “soft wax” (ask your RIVA 1920 dealer) which comes in the form of different coloured sticks. We suggest you use some eco-friendly, single component water-based filler. You can proceed as follows: after having heated the stick to make it softer, vigorously rub down the piece with greatcare using a cloth till the split is filled with the wax and then remove any excess or smears. When it is dry, the wax needs to be well rubbed down with thin sandpaper or stainless steel wool. Then treat the wooden top again withour natural oil. Never use chemical products or abrasive substances or maintenance kits different from the one supplied by RIVA 1920.
