Many dining tables state that they are fully “sealed” which means the timber has a protective layer that reduces the chance of staining from dirt or spills. However, these lacquer seals only protect the natural wood to a certain extent. These products still require regular maintenance and care taken to prevent permanent damage and extend its longevity.
Lacquer on timber can either lighten or darken over time, so placing runners on a dining table for too long can lead to the covered areas becoming a different tone to the rest of the table.
Solid wood will also have some degree of timber movement depending on the climate. Therefore, your timber products will naturally have slight movements throughout the different seasons of the year.
