Tali is a reddish-brown hardwood species originating from Africa. While aesthetically similar to other red-toned hardwood slabs, Tali can generally be distinguished by its relatively deeper colouring, almost burgundy purple at parts. In a single slab, sapwood is usually clearly demarcated from heartwood, and the live edge can be quite gnarly and interesting. 

Beyond aesthetics, Tali is also renown for its durability and inherent resistance to insect activity, making it the ideal choice for an heirloom piece that makes a strong statement.

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 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 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.

Tali FAQ

Where is Tali from?

Tali is a hardwood species from Africa.

Its reddish-brown colouring can make it difficult to distinguish from other red-coloured species, so here are a couple of tips for identifying Tali:

(1) Demarcated sapwood - Tali tends to have quite distinctly demarcated sapwood contrast against its heartwood; and

(2) A deep red wine colouring - as opposed to burnt clay colours, Tali tends to exhibit some subtle burgundy purple undertones!

Is it possible to make Tali less red?

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

Well, great news! Just like its reddish brothers, Tali 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.
