Our Zinc is recycled from natural sources, melted, and rolled into sheets by hand.

We then hand hammer the sheet to create the surface texture by which you may know our copper. Indeed, the processes are similar. The Zinc sheet is then applied to a wood core using small brads. You will notice that any Zinc top over 39 inches will have a row of nail brads holding multiple pieces. This is because Zinc is very difficult and dangerous to weld, as different from our copper tops. Zinc is more fragile than copper and requires great skill to apply smoothly. When construction is complete, we use a special formula of agents to create the variation of color that gives the distinct contrast of color. Our finished Zinc table tops are then waxed three times by hand, and buffed to a muted shine. 

 

Keep waxing your Zinc to build up layers for protection. It can be scratched easily and wax is the best defense to keep it looking new. We recommend Mother's Carnauba Cleaning Wax, or any other wax containing natural Carnauba, as it dries to a hard shine for maximum protection.
