Oak - Oak is the classic wood for dining table production - it is hardwearing and able to handle frequent long-time usage. Another bonus is the patterning of oak, this is another reason it is so popular in table production allowing the beautiful wood grain to be seen in all its glory. It's perfect in the family home as it's hard enough to resist little dents. Now, if you are looking at a reclaimed oak dining table then you will be purchasing eco consciously and you will find that the wood has even more character than new oak dining tables.

Walnut - Walnut is one of the hardest woods, however not quite as hard as oak. It boasts beautiful patterning and can contain many shades of wood - it is particularly popular in the production of furniture with an urban feel, such as an industrial dining table, featuring a straight cut design with slim, sleek and clean lines.
