If you don’t have enough information about teak, it can be pretty hard to choose a high-quality teak dining table. However, we have some tips to guide you in your choice of the best quality teak dining table. The first thing you need to notice is the finishing.

A high-quality teak dining table is made from teak, which is old enough, so there’s no white part. You can see white parts when the teak is still young. The white part is often attacked by termites. A high-quality teak material also won’t have a “hole”, which is from a branch.
