Choosing Tree Coffee Table

Dec 6th

When you make a tree coffee table, there are several types of wood to consider. Keep your living room interior, as well as your home environment, in mind when choosing the perfect wood. Coffee tables are often a central part of a living room, and when made of the right material, they can accent the rest of the room’s furniture and furnishings. Be sure to choose a hardwood wood if you have children and pets, or if you are hosting a lot of parties under which table will be used.

Imagine what kind of finish look you want for the finished coffee table. The constructed table will require either a coat or a bet. Different types of wood will look different when targeting is applied. Pine is good for a solid lacquer, while wood like oak and maple has dramatic appearance when stained due to their strong surface structure. Determine the type of abuse in the table will be exposed to. If you have pets, animal claws can have a big impact on wood surfaces. If your children will play and eat on the table, consider using a hard wood like oak, which resists dyeing and grooving. Soft wood like pine is more vulnerable to stains and marks on the surface.

Think about your budget for the tree coffee table. Certain types of wood, such as maple and cherry, can be very expensive, while wood such as spruce and pine is more affordable. There are also different grades of wood available. Low oak wood can have many flaws, while higher hardwood will have some dents, discoloration or messy grains. Consider the availability of different types of wood. When you buy wood to the coffee table, make sure there are plenty of the same color, grain and quality in stock. Even if you will use the same type of wood, the look and color will vary from lot to lot. If you want a rare type of wood, such as black bamboo or cherry, it may be best to buy it in person to avoid malpractice and damage during transport.

Tips and warnings

Soft wood trees commonly called evergreens. Types of hard wood include oak, walnut, birch, white ash, book, Alma, maple, mahogany, chestnut and model buildings.
