How to Purchase

The Table Guy wood slab collection is available for viewing and purchase from the showroom at 221 Henderson Road #01-06A. Walk-in hours are available daily (incl PH and Weekends) 1-6pm. Earlier timeslots are available by appointment.

We value quality over quantity. For this reason, our complimentary sourcing service is available to you, if you are unable to find a suitable piece in-store. Read the next tab for details.

We recommend starting your selection 3-4 months before your preferred date of delivery. This will give you ample time to make a considered decision.

Do bring your floor plan and preferred table dimensions (if you have them), for a more fruitful session. If your intended table is around 2.4m or larger, we recommend bringing in your lift dimensions as well so we can advise on accessibility.

Our sales adviser will be present to guide you through the selection process, and provide any explanations you may need to make an informed choice.

How to Source

Our wood slab sourcing service* is complimentary. Here's how it works:

1. Make an appointment with an adviser, to discuss the specifications of your project. This includes dimensions, budget, wood type and any other salient details.

2. This appointment is usually conducted at our showroom, where we will have reference materials to help us get a better understanding of what you're looking out for.

3. With a good understanding of your project, our team will connect with the timber mills to shortlist potentially suitable options for you. This is subject to availability.

4. Photos of suitable pieces will be Whatsapped to you, and more detailed advice given based on the specific slab (where applicable).

The process of finding a suitable piece typically takes between 1-2 months.

5. A non-refundable deposit is required, to ship your selected wood slab. Please note that the selected slab is not reserved until payment is received.

The shipping time for a wood slab is approximately 2 months, depending on the specifics of your project.

*We recommend starting your sourcing journey 6 months before your preferred delivery.

How to Customise

The Table Guy dining tables are fully customisable. Yes - that means leg frames too. Some customisations are complimentary, while more complex ones will attract workmanship fees.

Should you require customisation, we recommend making an enquiry via Whatsapp to our sales team at +65 8499 8989 with details on what you have in mind, so that you can get an indicative quote and advice to consider whether to proceed with your project.

Storage, Delivery, Installation

New purchases from The Table Guy are eligible for up to 4 months' complimentary storage from date of purchase. Extensions beyond 4 months are chargeable, and you will be quoted based on the overall duration requested and size of items to be stored.

Purchases of items in stock with no customisation required can be delivered within 2-3 weeks.

Customised orders are estimated to take between 6-8 weeks, as they will need to join a workshop queue.

Complimentary delivery is included for orders above $800.

All deliveries include installation, which is conducted on-site.
Clients are responsible for ensuring safe access for both the items and workers. In the event of improper environment/ lack of access (eg ongoing renovation/ construction site/ unreachable contact person), the delivery may be cancelled and a redelivery fee will be charged.

Our logistics teams offer disposal services at additional fees, which are paid to disposal sites and for manpower. Should you require bulky furniture disposal, please place your order before scheduling your delivery date, so that the logistics team can cater the space required to transport your bulky waste.

Payment & Warranty

To purchase your dining table, payment is required in full. To help minimise transaction costs to you, our default payment mode is Paynow.

Should you require alternative methods such as BNPL platforms or credit cards, please let your sales adviser know so that they can apply the correct transaction fee which is charged by these platforms.

Should you wish to discuss instalment payment, we are happy to assist. For all in-house instalment plans, final balance payment is due prior to delivery scheduling, and any instalments overdue by more than 7 working days will void your purchase and forfeit your deposit.

All Table Guy solid wood slabs, unless stated explicitly, are covered by a 2 year manufacturing warranty, from date of delivery.
This covers issues such as insects, mould and splits through the slab, which should not occur.

Real wood is an organic material, and cosmetic changes due to environment, time and use are expected. Damage due to improper use, storage and outdoor use is also excluded.

Learn More About Sapele

A close cousin of African Mahogany, Sapele is similarly known for its bold, rich colour, and striking grain features that make inimitable statement pieces.

A Modern Classic

Traditionally prized for its structural durability and inherent hardiness, Sapele is currently enjoying a new wave of popularity, as interior decor trends incorporate vintage styles with updated shades and shapes.

These rich, clay tones add the perfect touch of luxe in a dark interior, pairing beautifully with dark wood carpentry.


Distinguished by dark, tiger stripes and long, sweeping grain lines that stretch across the board, Sapele is a master study in understated drama.

Sapele doesn't need wild curls, swirls and shapes - like a bottle of fine wine, Sapele is always unforgettable, its striking grain features lingering in your memory long after dinner has ended.

Party Ready

Do you enjoy hosting? Sapele is ready to serve - growing tall and wide, Sapele slabs are typically available in generous proportions, making it the ideal choice for an indulgent hotpot catch up or a midnight poker sesh.

Questions from over 2000 clients

Sapele FAQ

Where is Sapele from?

Sapele is a hardwood species from Africa.

It belongs to the same family as African Mahogany, and exhibits many of the same qualities, although it can be distinguished by a comparatively earthier, more brownish undertone.

Is it possible to make Sapele less red?

Yes! Many clients love the size and grain features of Sapele, but find it difficult to match its natural colour.

Well, great news! Sapele can be stained a whole range of darker shades. Its natural, earthy undertones make it especially suited for picking up dark-brown stains effectively, resulting in a colour that resembles walnut.

Bonus: staining your slab allows you enjoy the natural grain features you love, in a colour tone that fits your current interior style. In the future, if your style changes, simply reset your slab colour with a quick sand-down!

Product Care

Made by a user, for users.

We're skeptical of manufacturers' claims too - this is why we personally tested a whole range of wood finishes, so you get the one that is not only great for protecting your table from daily use, it's also easy to maintain and allows you to enjoy more of the wood character for decades to come!

Made for Real Life

The Table Guy solid wood slabs are finished with Rubio Monocoat - a Belgian hardwax oil technology that not only coats your wood slabs, but binds to the cellulose of the wood fibres for long-lasting protection.

Remarkably stain and heat resistant, now you can enjoy worry-free dining without interrupting a calm morning or family dinner by chasing after spills and lunging for coasters. Simply wipe up after meals (don't allow spills to dry on your table) and all will be well.

We've got a whole stress test series on Instagram, follow us there to check it out.

Easy Maintenance

The secret to sustainable furniture, is making it easy for you to maintain. Too much furniture ends up in landfills before their time, just because they look "worn out" or "damaged".

DIY your own repairs and maintenance with the VOC-free Rubio Monocoat system, right in the comfort of your own home. If you've got young children around, we recommend keeping a bottle of Rubio solvent on hand for the occasional colouring accident.

Not confident/ don't have time for the work? No worries - The Table Guy provides support services at reduced rates for our products!


Let's keep it real - wood slabs are a barely-renewable resource. For this reason, we actively encourage you to reuse and repurpose your Table Guy furniture wherever possible.

Simply store in a bright, shaded area indoors, and keep dry. Annual DIY oiling is recommended for high-traffic areas (prevention is better than cure!).

Restore your table surface to new if you need to rehome it one day, or transform it into a bench or shelf with our carpentry support. We're here to support your sustainability journey.
