Hello and welcome to our site! We are the original wood table rental company in the Puget Sound area and we maintain the highest quality tables to this day. We got our start in 2011 because wood tables to rent were not available at that time. Since then, we have hand-built over 150 tables in several styles that we continuously maintain. Because we have chosen to stay small, we are able to give attention to the upkeep of the tables as well as client relations.
About the tables – All of the tables have been sourced from sustainable, local woods. We take pride in the design and quality and are always keeping an eye out for emerging trends, so that wood tables stay relevant long into the future. After 7 years, we do not tire of sitting down with our family and friends at these tables.
Our philosophy – Our goal is to provide beautiful, high quality rentals for weddings and events. We want our company to be as low stress as possible. We operate with honesty and integrity. We show up when we say we will and do what we say we will. We want our employees to be happy to come to work and we want our clients to be happy they worked with us. At SFT we don’t believe that tables make an event. It’s always the energy and love and fun of the participants that make it what it is and that’s exactly how it should be. We do, however, think the tables are beautiful and special and if you do to, we’d love to be part of your supporting cast.
|About Mike – Mike runs the office side of SFT. Until 2016, he did all the client relations as well as all of the back end for the business. After graduating UW, where he met Azure, Mike started a window washing business that he kept for 7 years while also coaching high school water polo and traveling in the winters. When asked what he was most proud of or thought was most interesting about himself before starting SFT, he said “Getting voted state coach of the year several times for water polo, traveling to Azerbaijan directly from a 3 month stay in Haiti and starting a business he knew nothing about at age 23.”
Currently, Mike still enjoys doing the emails and systems work for SFT while raising a daughter, Neige and collecting rainwater for drinking. He has always loved talking about small business ideas and has recently started consulting a few business owners.
About Azure – Azure is the lead builder and is responsible for keeping the tables fresh. Azure’s dad, Richard spearheaded the original tables since he had been a woodworker for 40 years. In the 7 years since SFT has been in business, she has learned from her father and now solidly considers herself a 2nd generation woodworker. In addition to SFT projects, she is mom to daughter Neige and helps friends build tiny homes or DIY new floors. Her passions include making stuff, fixing stuff, upgrading stuff and traveling.
Matchy matchy day for Azure, Neige and Mike.
About Isla – If you’ve been in touch with us via email, you’ve probably talked to Isla. She is a logistical genius and knows as much about farm table and scheduling as anyone. Isla joined the team in June of 2016 because the idea of driving around to beautiful locations in a box truck appealed to her. Growing up on a farm on Bainbridge Island, she was no stranger to physical work or woodworking. By fall of that year, she moved to the office to help Mike with emails. She currently lives with her fiancé and is planning her own wedding for June of 2018.

Contributing photographers – Our website is what it is because of contributions from countless amazing photographers who have given us permission to use their images.
