Suar Wood Dining Table

Suar Wood Dining Table

$1,600.00 SGD

Suar is the regional, colloquial name for wood derived from the Raintree, a rainforest native with iconic umbrella crowns that flank Singapore's expressways generously. 

Comparatively fast-growing with distinctive grain lines and features, Suar is typically available as a single slab, each board a snapshot of history; a physical log of the natural events of in that period. This results, of course, in a wide range of slabs with a broad spectrum of characters and personalities, which we love!

As a tropical native, Suar has been a regional favourite for generations, attesting to its structural durability. With proper care, your Suar Wood Dining Table is sure to deliver decades of service.

Learn More About Suar Wood

A classic feature in Southeast Asian decor, Suar wood is derived from the Raintree, identified by its iconic umbrella crown that flanks and shades so many of our highways in Singapore.

A Southeast Asian Statement

With its distinct character and colouring, Suar wood is the quintessential Southeast Asian centrepiece.

Typically available in heftier proportions, every piece instantly adds a calming, lush accent of nature, bringing balance to our contemporary interiors. An ideal choice for creating a calm sanctuary, this tropical hardwood is often spotted in hotel lobbies, restaurant bars, and the modern Southeast Asian home.

Single-Slab Character

As a relatively fast-growing species, Suar wood is a favourite among single-slab enthusiasts.

Suar wood slabs range in character. From pieces with long, straight grain lines that flow across the board, to wild slabs that curve and bend without restraint, there is truly a piece to match every personality.

Heirloom Durability

A rainforest native, Suar wood has been tried and proven as a uniquely durable hardwood in Southeast Asia.

With proper storage and care, the structural sturdiness of Suar wood gives you flexibility in life - whether you plan to adapt your slab to fit an evolving lifestyle, or choose to pass it on as a bearer of memories to future generations, Suar wood is the ideal choice for those of us looking for long-term value.

Questions from over 2000 clients

Suar Wood FAQ

Is it true that Suar wood is more prone to defects than other wood types?

This is not true.

Manufacturing defects associated with wood, are defects that would arise with any wood type, as long as there were processing lapses. This is why manufacturing defects are covered by our 2 year warranty, which applies to all our wood types, not just Suar wood.

Plus - Suar wood is and has been one of the most widely sold wood types in Singapore. If Suar wood was really more prone to defects than other wood types, we're pretty sure all the other solid wood retailers would gone out of business chasing defects rectifications a long time ago.

Having completed over 2000 deliveries (of which almost 50% were Suar wood tables), we can confidently say that Suar wood does not have a higher defect rate than any other type of hardwood that we retail (and we have quite the range!)

Is Suar Wood cheaper because it is not as good as other wood types?

Wood slabs are priced by demand and supply, which are affected by many factors.

A strong factor that affects supply, is the rate of growth and cost of processing each particular wood type. Suar wood is a relatively faster-growing species, and is usually harvested from Indonesia which has lower labour costs, compared to Walnut, which is relatively slower-growing, and is usually harvested from America, which has high labour costs.

These costs add up in the supply of the wood slab - wood types are priced differently, because the cost of acquiring them is different.

This could become a whole Economics 101 essay, but to keep it short - no, the price of any wood type is not determined by its inherent "goodness".

What are those white bands at the sides of Suar Wood slabs?

That's sapwood!

Sapwood is the living layer of the tree trunk, which carries fluids and nutrients that keep the tree alive. Hence - Live Edge, get it?

Over time, some of the living cells die, and form the heartwood, which is the inner section of the slab. Look closely, and you'll notice all real live edge wood slab have both sap and heartwood.

Of course, colouring does range greatly across different species, of which Suar wood exhibits the strongest sapwood/ heartwood demarcation. Those cream borders contrasted against a dark chocolate centre are prized as the hallmark of classic Suar!

What is South American Walnut?

"South American Walnut" is a made-up term that describes the location (South American) and the wood colour (Walnut), it is not the same species as Black Walnut or its relatives.

This is an industry-coined term that has been used to help consumers understand the origin and colour of what they are purchasing, not the wood type. It is sometimes used to refer to Suar wood that originates from South America, as a way of distinguishing it from Suar wood that originates from other countries.

To avoid confusion, The Table Guy only uses the term "walnut" to describe slabs from the walnut species itself. We do not use it as a colour descriptor.

Product Care

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.
