Where to buy an oak dining room table

Due to its abundance, oak was used by everyone. When the rich began to look for a way to advertise their wealth, they used oak to make elaborate pieces of furniture. Lighter wood took oak's place in the 1600s, then it became popular again in the Arts and Crafts period in beginning of the 20th century. Oak is still used today to create furniture for the dining room and so much more.

Antique stores

For oak tables made of heavy oak or in the Arts and Crafts period, you will have a good chance of finding them at an antique store. There, the tables will feature hand joinery and dovetails, and can be the plain, roughly-hewn tables of long ago, the ornate tables of the middle ages, simple lines of Gustav Stickley. The tables will vary in price as well as condition. Examine the table carefully before bringing it home.

Custom

These can be in the form of lumber from Lawson's Timber which features reclaimed lumber, UK Oak that will cut oak boards to your specification, and UK Timber. With these boards, you can use dining table designs of your own or from books like Making Authentic Shaker Furniture which includes designs and directions in the book. These tables can be made so well that they could last hundreds of years, just like the solid oak dining tables of old.
