What is the best wood for a dining room table?

1 Answer
The best wood for a dining table is a matter of preference. But a widely used wood for this furnishing is oakwood. It is the most durable wood with wide and open grain. It withstands surface scratches and can be easily sanded and refinished. A collection of dining tables spanning different periods, materials, and shapes is available on 1stDibs.
