Types of Timber

Oak, maple and cherry wood are three major types of wood that use for dining tables.

Oakwood is a classic type of wood that is perfect for dining tables in any style. The appearance of oakwood is warm and expresses a comfortable ambience. Oak dining tables are matchable to a various range of homestyle: modern, classic, oriental, etc. The advantages of oak dining tables are strong and durable, resistant to mould and fungi, and attractive natural light colour. The natural environment with changeable weather conditions made oakwood into a material that survive for generations, and so does the dining table.


Maple wood, a softer hardwood with a fine surface and a modern design for the dining table, contains brown maple as well. The maple dining table becomes adaptable when matched with various dining room types, such as the modern dining room, because of the light and dark colours that maple wood has. Although there are many different kinds of maple dining tables, they all look gorgeous. But because maple wood is weaker than oak, it won't last as long.


The rustic cherry is made of cherry wood, which appears white and reddish brown. Your dining room will have a rustic, relaxed, and beautiful appearance. Cherry wood dining tables are popular for use at gatherings with friends and family because of its reddish hue, which accentuates the colour of the home. However, cherry wood dining tables are more likely to dent with heavy use because it is a softer timber and is not as sturdy as oak. Oak dining tables are the best because of this.
