After analyzing the different options, the maple stands out from the rest, making it our consensual choice. Its strong resistance to scratches and dents is second to none. White oak wood is a great choice for a farmhouse table. It is a hard and durable wood that will still give the table a rustic touch.
You can buy standard size boards to build the base of the table, and if you really want to mix things up, consider using a live edge for the table top. A farmhouse table should always bring a touch of nature and a rustic touch to any room. They usually come with a thick wood top made of solid boards such as oak or pine and often have sturdy wooden spindle legs. Maple is the type of wood that our carpenters recommend for an affordable dining space.
If you don't want to spend hundreds or thousands, choose maple. They are quite durable and can absorb stains well. Over time, stains can even complement the look of your dining room table. If you have a light-colored decor but want a touch of rustic wood, our carpenters recommend the light-grain “rock maple”, a nickname it has acquired thanks to its hardness.
We also have walnut wood, which is suitable for both contemporary and modern accessories. Walnut has dark tones that are revered by many interior decorators and an excellent natural wood for use at home, especially if the customer prefers a rustic, outdoor environment. Another thing to consider if you're considering walnut for a wooden table is the price. Walnut trees aren't as big as the other best table woods on the list, so you can expect to pay a higher cost.
Our team members begin this section by saying that pine is one of the softest wood options you can choose for your dining table. The Janka rating for pine is only 300 to 400, but durability (or lack of it) doesn't take anything away from its beauty. Its price is very moderate compared to walnut, for example, and although it is very easy to dent this type of wood, it is also a type that many people choose for rustic style tables. With no dents, no scratches, and hardly any signs of wear and tear, American walnut beats walnut, red oak, rustic cherry and every other type we have on the list for a hardwood table.
Keep in mind that, no matter how hard American walnut is, it is a type of wood that is susceptible to moisture, making some reconsider it as wood for a dining table in the kitchen. The color you want will also influence the choice of wood. If you want a dark golden brown, maple is a great choice, while pine is great for a clearer, brighter appearance. It all depends on the wood surface you prefer.
The right wood for you may be different for someone else, so choose the aesthetic you want. The walnut tree costs a lot, because the trees are smaller, so it is less available. Softer woods also tend to cost less, due to their softer nature and their tendency to show wear and tear. By contrast, hardwoods that can stand the test of time generally have a higher price.
Most importantly, farmhouse tables are designed to last for many years and usually come with built-in drawers that provide practical additional storage. The color of the table surface and the grain of the wood, or wood fibers, will really affect the look of the custom table in your home. For any other table that's good, but for a farmhouse table, remember that dents and dents add character. You can also buy modern farmhouse tables that feature the iconic thick reclaimed wood-style top, but with a more contemporary base, such as square wooden or iron legs, which work just as well.
Even if it's a beautiful color, consider your vision for your farm table and make sure that the cherry tree is a right color for you. However, at Grain and Frame, we offer an extendable option on all of our farmhouse dining tables so that you don't have to compromise on the style you want. Traditionally, dining tables in country houses are large, chunky pieces of furniture that provide ample seating for the whole family. Neutral and earthy tones are key to the country house trend and allow the natural beauty of the wooden table to shine through.
