Tables

Querx makes tables in several designs. The slate-top types are side tables, 14 or 18 inches in diameter. You never have to worry about heat marks or spillages as a wipe with an oily rag is all the slate ever needs to keep it looking like new. As with the timber we use, all the slate comes from North Wales; it is 400 to 550 million years old and is riven with hammer and chisel in the traditional way.
The wood-top tables are mostly coffee tables, made following traditional Welsh stick furniture techniques. Height and size can be tailored to order. The table top may be round or oval and have a smooth or "waney" edge - where the bark has been removed and no shape imposed on it. The legs may be planed straight and round or oval in section, and others shaved to follow the natural curves and twists in the timber.
Querx also makes four-seater, central pedestal kitchen and dining tables. The pedestal is carved and twisting, each one unique. The tops are between 36 and 42 inches in diameter and between 1½ and 2 inches thick.
