$500k Stretch Goal Announced! Dark Stain Wood Grain Tables - Black Tops

Posted by Wood Robot (Creator)

Hi everyone, after much study and discussion we are ready to potentially offer dark stain birch wood grain tables, if we can hit our stretch goal. Since there is a new process and additional handwork needed for finishing, we need to have enough tables of this type to produce in order to move forward. Therefore we are setting this at the next Stretch Goal at $500k. 

We are excited to offer this due to the tremendous number of requests from the TOUG community. Please share this news and help move the ball forward so we can add this to the offerings! The images below are examples only. If we can hit the goal we will move forward and create sample tables and do a photoshoot! The tops will be black. Of course you can choose any mat color and we would also offer all the optional decoration pack themes in all the backing colors for unprecedented customization.

We hope you are as excited as we are to potentially be able to offer this to the TOUG community! 

Peace and Gaming  -  Patrick and Jamie

      This has made my choice easy

      Love the wood stain, but could we not have the whole thing that way, instead of the flat black on the top?

      Justin Boehm hey thanks Justin. So taht I am clear what are you looking for as to the top?

      Gotta say I LOVE the new stain, it really looks fantastic! I see you mentioned below why the top was black (laminating I guess?), but If you can do grey, black, and white, why wouldn't it be possible to do so with a dark wood grain? As others have mentioned that is probably the biggest detractor for me, as with any top colors available, none of them really match the new dark stain.

      P.S. Still hoping to see that purple mat/deco option!

      Thank you for the stretch goal of a darker stained finish version. This is something I have requested from the start.
      Several questions;
      1) Would I still hold my place in line for delivery for changing pledge levels (I was one of your original lower 100’s backers)? Originally I opted for your “$789 ULTIMATE VALUE BUNDLE” level, but later we reduced our pledge to only the $1 level, since a painted finish was not something that we really wanted. With the possible option of a darker stain finish, we may up our pledge level again, but also hope we could hold our place in line if we change.
      2) Can we get some better close-up pictures of the proposed darker stain option? I would also like to see some close-up photos that show areas where the edge of the plywood is visible to see how the stain covers the plywood layers.
      3) What is actual stain color; just a dark brown, black-cherry, mahogany? Do would know the brand and color of stain to be used so the backers could investigate the true color and if they needed too, possibly look for matching chairs of the similar color?
      4) Earlier comments / replies indicate the top would still be a black laminated top. I assume that applies to the add-on pull-out draws / top panels. Any chance the top could be stained too? Still having a black rails and top panels could still possibly be a deal breaker for us on pledging higher.
      5) Will all add-on items also be available in a matching dark stain option?
      6) Any impact on cost for the dark stain option (for the table and add-on items too) or if the next stretch goal is met, would offset any added costs?

      Looks awesome! The dark stain with green caught my eye.

    10. rachel walker

      Ooooooh dark grain yesss - would it ultimately cost extra though or just be another option?

    11. Wood Robot 2-time creator on

      The Bacon Phoenix that will look amazing!

    12. The Bacon Phoenix

      Green mat, Dark stain and Cthulhu bling are definitely what I'm picking for my table

      Jason Sullivan - thank you Jason!

    14. Jason Sullivan

      Massive news. Not having a dark wood grain option was literally my only concern with the tables (not enough to keep me from backing early, but still was something I was hoping to see corrected. Truly a great day!

      Stephen "Stoibs" D You can always get more mats in the future. But yeah for the moment the green has captured me. But even black will look pretty sweet....and red...and then there is blue... :)

    16. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      Cool, fair enough.
      Yeah at the end of the day I'll probably be using some sort of tablecloth thingy for potential spills on the top when in dining mode anyway, so no biggie.
      Will still be able to see the lovely wood grain legs :)

      Oh and now I'm not 100% sold on my chosen felt colour either after seeing these mockup designs.. damn that oak and green looks nice.. hmm

    17. Wood Robot 2-time creator on

      @Ryan, yeah we here at the Wood Robot are now big fans of the green and dark stain. Looking very Black Forest Bavarian or what-have-you... good stuff!

    18. Ryan Ward on

      I love the way it looks with the green mat and deco. I actually really like the black top, too.

    19. Wood Robot 2-time creator on

      The reason for the black tops is all our tops are laminated. Super high quality, bullet proof and good looking

      Sebly on

      Happy with the stain as well but why have a black top? Is it not possible to have the top stained as well?

    21. Wood Robot 2-time creator on

      Stephen "Stoibs" D - hey Stephen I was thinking of you among others here when we decided we move forward with the dark stain. I hope we can get there! Tell your friends :) / The reason for the black tops is all our tops are laminated. Super high quality, bullet proof and good looking. Like Jamie and I.... :) But seriously it has to do with quality and stability.

    22. Rob C on

      This is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

    23. Stephen "Stoibs" D

      Definitely will be picking this one if achieved. :D

      Though is there a why reason the tops would be black instead of the same colour?
