How is a wood table made?

How do you protect a wooden table naturally?

How do you dry wood on a table?
All you need to do is set up a decent dehumidifier beside the stack of wood to be dried, let it run, and it will suck the moisture right out of the wood. This can speed up the drying time from months or weeks to just a few days. Even better is if you add an air fan into the mix to produce some extra airflow.
What materials are used to make a table?
