Mid-Autumn Festival 2020 from Oct 1 to Oct 5 – Shipping Delayed

As the Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節) 2020 celebrations are about to get underway, we’d like to inform you about the impact the festivities will have on shipments and order processing.

Our China-based partners will not process orders between October 1st and October 5th. The online store, customer support and community forum are not affected. We expected operations to resume gradually after the celebration period. All orders placed during the celebration period will be processed once the logistics team is back in action.

Also, we’d like to inform you that all products are back in stock with sufficient quantity.

The entire Open Benchtable team wishes you Zhōngqiū jié kuàilè (中秋節快樂) (a happy Mid-Autumn Festival) and may you enjoy the many mooncake pastries!

Chinese New Year 2018 – Shipments on hold from February 9 to 26

Via this brief blog post we would like to inform you that shipments will be delayed due to Chinese New Year celebrations.

Between February 9, 2018, and February 26, 2018, our China-based partners will not process any orders. If you are looking to purchase an Open Benchtable before Chinese New Year, we urge you to place your order as soon as possible. Orders placed during the Chinese New Year celebrations will be processed after February 26th.

From the office here in Taipei, Taiwan, we would like to wish you Xīnnián kuàilè (新年快樂) (a happy New Year) on behalf of the entire Open Benchtable team. May the Year of the Dog bring  great fortune and prosperity to you and your family!

Community Edition is Shipping!

Good news, we are shipping! After a month of waiting (actually more like a month and a half since the orders opened), the first batch of 200 Open Benchtable Community Edition is completely produced.

All the tables went passed quality control and were laser engraved with their unique serial numbers, packed and ready to find a new home.

Now shipping worldwide

All the orders made until now are fully fulfilled and the parcels were sent to the courier for a speedy delivery to their new owners. For the occasion we would like to extend our thanks to all the early adopters and supporters for their trust and patience. We are glad that the production went without hiccups and that we could ship the tables just in time as planned.

Buyers can track their orders through our simplified tracking interface here : And of course if there are any questions, simply contact us.
