I think it’s wood.

Just kidding. I have no idea. Maybe someone else here will.

By not naming the wood, they are free to make future tables out of any available wood.

If it were teak I bet it they would boasting Knock down Teak Dining table.
They are using urban wood from blow downs here in California.
Walnut, Ash, Camfor, sycamore all plentiful out here.

Since the page claims only varnish and hard oil,
I guess Claro Walnut?
Unique to West Coast US, found in urban locations, more figure and wider grain spacing than east coast black walnut, and more expensive too. The really pretty figured stuff is super expensive ($20+ bdft).

The legs and base are… 16/4?

Also, what’s “hard oil”? I see some references to it being used for floors.

Hard oil is old wood working terminology for any oil that dries to a hard varnish like surface,
IMHO – It’s another misused generic name like Danish oil.

See it mostly in UK mfg these days.

Osmo also used the terminology.
