What is the best wood for a dining table?

1 Answer
The best wood for a dining table is a matter of preference. Oakwood is widely used due to its durability and open grain structure. It can withstand surface scratches and can be easily sanded and refinished. Find a range of antique and vintage dining tables on 1stDibs.
