Is copper table practical?
My husband and I just saw a beautiful copper dining table with the edges in walnut. The wood crafter said the copper was not coated and that he'd done a table like this seven years ago. After seven years, he said the copper had become multi-colored with swirls but it was not the green patina that you see outdoors. He said it will stand up to heavy use but I'm not convinced. I don't want to fuss with my main table.
I looked up how to care for copper tables. Some say you shouldn't put water glasses down on them and you shouldn't use water to clean them. That seems really restrictive. They suggest you wax them twice a year. That seems OK.
Does anyone have a copper table top. How practical is it?
I don't mind if the copper changes hue or becomes multi-colored but it must be easy to clean off.
