Thinking about purchasing a pine table for a second home, which is in a resort area, so it will be used a few months out of the year. I have never owned a pine table,but I like the warm, cottagey feel of pine. I know pine is a soft wood,but how soft is it? How easily can you dent or make an impression in the wood.
We use placemats, coasters and trivets all the time, so I am wondering if this is an issue. An occasional game might be played on th table, but I could use a tablecloth. The piece is slightly distressed to begin with...maybe additional dings will just add to the patina finish!!???
I might add, that the table top is not extremely thick..maybe 1"-1-1-2" thick.
Hope this doesn't appear twice. I have been receiving error messages when I hit submit.
