Q: My parents are gifting us a dining table of our choice for our wedding. Since we will need to love it forever we have to choose carefully. I think our budget is about $5,000, and I want it to be handcrafted from FSC-certified wood. This table (from the Joinery) really speaks to me, but I'm not sure if it's versatile enough to work forever. What do people think about it? What sorts of chairs would go with it or be a nice contrast? Would cherry be better than this walnut?
