In this post I want to answer the most common questions you have asked. Some of you often want to know more about our dining table. I get messages every day and most of the time it’s the same questions. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time to answer all the questions and I’m a little sorry for that. Hence this post. At some point I had the idea to write an FAQ post in which the answers can be found. I really hope it is helpful to everyone.
Q: WHERE CAN I BUY THE DINING TABLE?
A : That is unbelievably the most frequently asked question EVER. Our dining table cannot be bought like this because we built it ourselves. How exactly and more details about the dining table can be found in this post .
Q: WHAT WOOD IS IT?
A: Well, these are old building boards and we got them as a gift from my father-in-law. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you what kind of wood that is. As I said, the boards are old.
Q: WHERE CAN I BUY THE PLANKS?
A: As far as I know, there are old building boards on classifieds as well. Of course, the wood won’t look exactly like ours. But that’s also what makes a DIY project so exciting. A very special piece of furniture is always created. Probably nobody will have one anymore.
Q: HOW DID YOU TREAT THE WOOD?
A: Not at all. To be honest, I don’t really plan to work on the wood either. At least not in the near future. I like the wood as it is and at the moment I wouldn’t have the time to start such an important project anyway.
Q: HOW DO YOU CLEAN THE TABLETOP?
A: Well, probably as well as everyone else. Wipe with a damp cloth … And if the crumbs get lost (which also happens), then they are vacuumed again. That was it. Oh yes, we use tablecloths and placemats, that helps a lot. Thanks to the extra protection, there aren’t that many stains, even with children.
Q: WHAT KIND OF TABLE FRAME IS IT?
A: We built the table frame from the old dining table ourselves years ago. This table frame is actually only an interim solution, because at some point we want one made of metal to move in.
