Quality Dining Table Characteristics

When shopping for a dining table, whether new or antique, there are certain characteristics that define high quality. Here are a few things to look for when shopping for a dining table in order to get the highest quality.

Quality Wood

When selecting a wood dining table, make sure the wood is kiln dried. This means that all of the moisture has been removed from the wood in order to make it as strong as possible. Make sure the wood grain matches on similar pieces of the dining table. The wood stain should not have any drips or inconsistencies revealing lesser quality. There should not be any MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) used anywhere.

Good Joints

The construction of the dining table should use dovetails, dowels, glue & screws, or other quality construction techniques. There should not be any butt joints or staples used.

Quality Dining Table Characteristics

Stable Construction

Try pushing and tugging on the dining table. It should not give easily, twist, or squeak at all revealing lesser quality.

Nicely Finished on All Sides

The underside of the dining table should have a good quality finish. The underside should be sanded smooth and should not be rough to the touch.

Suits Your Lifestyle

Make sure the dining table is suitable for your lifestyle. Does the wood top require drink coasters? Does the top have a lot of grooves that food will get stuck in? Does the table extend to accommodate many guests?

Fits Chairs

Make sure the chairs you select will fit under the table. New chairs often have arms that are too tall to fit under antique tables.
