About Danish Teak Dining Table

Your husband panics when you announce you just bought a Great Dane, until he sees you that you have come home with a Danish teak dining table. Teak produces a leather smell during the milling process, and earns praise for its durability, longevity, and water resistance. Teak makes carvings, boats, veneers, and other wood projects. This hardy material features lighter shades of brown and even red, like other softwoods. Thick, tough, and compact fibers make teak valuable for dining tables. Teak surfaces withstand abuse from contact with keys, knives, rings, and objects that can mar its finish. You can find a Danish teak dining table finished in a lacquer or polish, which adds a beautiful shine and extends the table's life even more. These tables come in several designs; some feature long, rectangular surfaces resting on four feet while others stand on a center parallel stand, supported by two elongated feet at the ends. These large tables make ideal displays for entertaining, but smaller tables, like Danish teak coffee tables, look just as elegant. You can find them with drop leafs, in classic round shapes, or in small squares. Look for these tables on eBay, which has a large variety from which to choose. All you have to do is decide upon table design or time of production, like mid-century or modern, and your new tables will be on their way to you for your next dinner party or family meal.
