Where to buy a beech dining table

The beech tree grows in Europe, North America, Japan, Tasmania, New Zealand and Australia, Norway, Asia Minor and Tierra del Fuego. Its name comes from the same origin as book, which speaks of an early tradition of Runic writings on boards made of beech. The wood from the beech is hard and light brown in colour. Its use for furniture, including dining tables, is long-lived. This article explains where to buy beech dining tables.

Big-box stores and furniture stores

Stores such as Ikea, Warfside, and Discount Furniture Direct are some of the places where you might be able to find beech dining tables. The styles and quality vary from store to store. They range from the very plain, such as those offered at Ikea, to the more fanciful of the designer brands. The beech tables can come on their own or as a set which includes a beech table and chairs. You may also be able to buy beech cabinets to compliment the table, thereby, creating an entire dining room set. Beech tables may be finished to resemble oak dining sets or can be of solid beech.

Antique beech tables

If you prefer older furniture, then shopping for an antique beech dining table may be perfect for you. Stores like Antique Tables and Country Furniture carry an 18th century beech table from Normandy, an antique beech stretcher table. Auctions, both online or estate, can also be a source of antique beech tables which have a craftsmanship and finish that modern tables lack. You may also find antique beech tables at yard sales or charity shops.

Custom beech dining tables

Perhaps, you prefer the look of the antique beech dining table, but cannot afford the price. If you buy the wood and have the table made for you or build it yourself, then you can save yourself some money while creating an heirloom. Dining table plans are available online or at bookstores and they run the range from medieval if not before to modern. When you build or have the table built for you, you can control the finish, specify the joinery as well as the size. The table can be one solid tabletop (perhaps pieces joined together) or extendable with leaves or have hinged dropped leaves.
