The Old Door is the product that really converted Vast’s love of salvaged timber into our first mainstream recycling success.
Perhaps one of the main reasons for its popularity is how the combination of new timber (used in the frame and legs) contrasts neatly with the recycled timber that is used in the inset panels on the top.
As the name suggests the feature timber used in these tables is sourced predominantly from salvaged old wooden doors which are often approx. 40-60 years old
The top is hand assembled from solid recycled hardwood planks; carefully selected and married sympathetically with others to create a design fingerprint that is unique every time.
The table surface then has the hand application of four individual layers of hard wearing German lacquer that is interspersed with light sanding between each coat, providing a surface that easily stands up to boiling water, red wine spills, hot plates etc.
These tables incorporate our signature strength guarantee and really are designed to last a century, or in our words “a lifetime of meal times”
The timber used in this piece is sustainably sourced Mango Wood. Each plank is individually treated in a computer controlled kiln to reduce the chance of any cracks or warping in its long future as a furniture component.
This piece has been handcrafted by one of our Vast Masters, these individual cabinet makers have been manufacturing Vast products for over a decade. Using traditional joinery techniques to maximise the timber's natural beauty is a big part of the unique look of each Vast product. We call this "working with the grain". After the joinery is complete it is then hand sanded and hand polished with several coats of high grade German lacquer so it will last for generations!
Country of Origin: India
Hardwood is a natural material which reacts to its environment and although our manufacturing process allows for normal expansion and contraction, extreme high or low humidity may cause more swelling than normal. To minimise movement and ensure longevity of your purchase we recommend taking good care of your piece as outlined below:
- Dust regularly with a clean cotton cloth;
- Use tablecloths, table runners and coasters to help prevent scratches to the surface and wipe up any spills immediately;
- To nourish and protect your furniture we recommend waxing with a natural beeswax every 6-12 months.
- Only use natural wax, oil or water based cleaning products. Do not use solvent based cleaning products that may contain silicone or alcohol, as this may react and permanently damage the lacquer.
- Do not expose to fragrant oils, insect repellent lotion, or nail polish remover as these are often solvent based and will damage the lacquer
- Avoid placing your furniture near fireplaces, in direct sunlight or under heating/cooling vents.
- Do not leave hot items or ice cold items directly on the surface of the table as water marking may occur.
- Any metal work featuring on your product has been powder coated. Any damage to the surface should be contained as soon as possible to prevent rusting.

This is a really solid, well made table with the fabulous charm of recycled hardwood. Although a number of different pieces of wood have been used for the ‘old door’ style, the finish on the top is smooth and even. Definitely 5 stars!
Absolutely love this. I am using on my patio as an outdoor table. So solid and beautiful 😊🙌🙌🙌
We purchased our Old Door table a few months ago and we are so impressed with the quality and the character of this table. We wanted something unique but it had to last. The quality far exceeded out expectations. We are so happy with our table!
