I am having a conservatory built. I am considering moving the oak dining table and chairs into it. Just worried about how the temperature changes will affect the wood. Any advice?

I don't know about temperature change but if it is in full sun it will fade

Thanks Barry. It will be in full sun but am presuming that perhaps fading will be uniform (especially if I don't leave anything on the table). I wondered if the wood might split.

temperature and humidity will vary much more than in a house, so it might warp and veneers crack or lift.

Solid wood so at least don't have to worry about any veneer. Wondering whether to risk it and keep a eye on how the wood is reacting.
