Custom kitchen table being built -- which wood??
April 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Would you recommend Alder wood for a kitchen table? I read that it is a "soft" wood so will I regret that with a 5 yo and 4 yo (and all the future years we have with it?) Our builder knows we would like something that already has a few "bumps and bruises" on it so that the ones the children add to it only blend in. The finish will be a dark walnut with the poly finish. Any other wood recommendations instead?
