Visit Us At This Year’s HD Expo in Las Vegas, May 2-4

At Table Topics, we’ve spent decades crafting only the highest quality custom commercial dining tables, and we’re excited to announce that we will once again be bringing these products to the upcoming Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference (HD Expo) in fabulous Las Vegas.

To be held May 2-4 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, the HD Expo is the industry’s leading hospitality conference and trade show, and it’s an event known for showcasing new products and services for the hospitality industry.

In Las Vegas, we will also have a hands-on test for attendees to see up close just how special our exclusive Acralyte finish is for commercial tables. Acralyte is an acrylic resin that is chemically engineered to provide greater scratch, mar, chemical, and heat resistance than traditional furniture finishes (like epoxy, resin, polyester resin, urethane, and conversion varnishes). To illustrate that, we will have a scratch test set up in our Las Vegas booth for anyone to test the industry-standard urethane top against our Acralyte finish.

Attendees to our booth in Las Vegas, will also get a chance to speak directly with three of our team members who have all been with our company for more than 10 years. Hayden Powell (president), Melissa Land (director of sales and marketing), and Tammy Allen (customer service) will be available and ready to chat with anyone wanting more information about our unique design capabilities.

So don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to visit with us and see the latest tabletops at our booth in fabulous Las Vegas, #2822, at Mandalay Bay! We look forward to seeing you there!

The Benefits of Acralyte

At Table Topics, we’ve been in the business of creating only the highest quality custom commercial dining tables since 1980. That quality continues to shine through in all of our products with our invention of Acralyte.

Available exclusively through Table Topics, Acralyte is an acrylic resin that is chemically engineered to provide greater scratch, mar, chemical, and heat resistance than traditional furniture finishes (like epoxy resin, polyester resin, urethane, and conversion varnishes). Ideal for both restaurant tables and bars, Acralyte is available in all sorts of levels or sheens, or for practically any need or application:

Like many of our customers, we were tired of seeing beautiful tables rapidly deteriorate because of the poor quality of epoxy resin finishes. So we got to work, spending years doing research and testing for better alternatives because we knew there had to be a better way. What makes Acralyte different? It’s that it’s so much more than just a chemical coating. It’s an entire manufacturing process that includes everything from the materials used in the product to the product operations, which aren’t the typical standards for furniture manufacturing. We utilize a rigorous production process that is tightly monitored and controlled, ensuring an end product that is unmatched in quality.

Not only does Acralyte help produce high quality products, but products coated in Acralyte are more durable. When properly cared for, products with Acralyte will consistently outlast a similar style table that doesn’t have the Acralyte finish. In fact, while a similar style table may have a product life of one to two years, our tables with Acralyte are expected to last at least five to seven years—in many instances they last 10 years or more.

Cost effectiveness, quality, and durability are just three of the reasons why more and more businesses are turning to our Acralyte line of products for their table needs. Contact us today to find out how we can work with you to help you create the look you want while saving you money.

Made in the U.S.A. with Quality and Pride

For more than 30 years, Table Topics has been manufacturing high-quality commercial dining tables. We design and build more than 20,000 tables a year in our factory in Elberta, Alabama. Here in this beautiful region of the Gulf Coast, we’re near road, rail and air transportation routes. Our tables have made their way to restaurants, neighborhood bars and conference rooms throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Our manufacturing process starts with the best in raw materials, hand selected for quality and appearance. We put those materials and an array of precision equipment in the hands of our highly skilled woodworkers. They put their craftsmanship and eye for detail to work. They test material tolerances. They mix and apply custom stains. They apply our beautiful and durable Acralyte finish through our patented process. They take pride in their work and it shows. You’ll be proud, too, of the quality and value of your table design.

Your next project is our next priority. We’ve been around for three decades and we plan to continue to proudly produce the best in custom tables for years to come. Give us a call today and get started on your next made-in-the-U.S.A. project.

Live Edge Tables

Live edge tables can add even more character to the custom design of your table tops. As in so many elements of a Table Topics design, edges can contribute to a look all your own. It’s helpful to see examples of a variety of uses, in both character and function, that feature live edges. This digital image table top features logs with a live edge. Or you may prefer the more traditional look of this communal table featuring a solid walnut live edge.

Although frequently associated with rustic décor, live edge design can be incorporated into most any style table. Our product catalog features veneers, solid wood, digitals and more, and live edges can be a part of any of these table designs in order to meet your particular project needs.

Incorporating live edges into your design is an ideal way to feature the natural beauty found in some of our most common materials, in perfect combination with the outstanding craftsmanship and attention to detail of our Table Topics team. If you need help getting started, give us a call or email us and one of our experienced salespeople will walk you through the options and the process of deciding on a design, getting a quote and getting your beautiful tables in production.

The Value and Variety of Veneers


Veneers are excellent products for bringing the beauty, character and personality of your chosen wood species to life. They also offer several benefits over solid wood. In most cases, a veneer is more affordable than solid wood, offers responsible access to scarce species and gives our craftsmen the ability to create patterns and designs not available in solid planks.

Table Topics offers a large selection of veneers. Whether you’re looking for variations on light,  medium or dark wood, you’ll find dozens from which to choose.

Whether you prefer a classic old world look, the stunning look of a rare wood or a more intricate pattern combining a variety of species and our outstanding marquetry, you’ll find plenty of variations to spark your own creativity.

When you’re ready to create your tables, our specification guide is a great tool to help move you through your design process. Or if you’d rather, contact us today and our team will work with you to design the product you need with the look you want.

Value vs. Cost

Our customers understand the value of quality tables. They measure that value not as a cost, but as an investment. It’s an investment in the product they need and the design they want, sure. But it goes beyond that. It’s one that will provide a return over the entire life of the product.

Investing now in differences like Table Topics’ custom designs and durable Acralyte finish will save money over the life of the product. The costs of replacing, shipping and installing a product that doesn’t last as long are avoided. As are refinishing because of a finish marred by scratches, rings or fog.

When properly used and cared for, Table Topics products consistently outlast others.

The life expectancy of a Table Topics table is five to seven years. We’ve even documented cases of 10 or more years of life. The cheaper table is actually much more expensive in the long run. It’s easy to see the value, when comparing our products with those that typically last only two to three years. The value of extending the product’s life is what makes our products the most cost-effective in the industry.

After implementing a successful project with us, our customers come back again and again when new opportunities arise. They trust the craftsmanship, appreciate the service and attention to detail and understand the value of working with Table Topics.  We’d love to offer you that value, too. You can learn more about us here or start the conversation today and let’s get your project underway. It’s an investment you’ll be proud of for years to come.
