We have a wooden dining table that we need to store away until a time undetermined. We have two options: attic or shed. We will, of course, be taking the table apart before storing.

We own our home so no issues there.
The attic is of the pull down stairs variety. The chairs should be fairly easy to get up there. I worry about getting the table top up there due to the opening space. Mr. Maynicholas thinks it won't be a problem. The attic is getting pretty full, but there is room.
The shed is a decent size, 16x20(ish), but we also store our lawn mowers in there & occasionally need to bomb it because of black widows. We are worried about the table absorbing the odor of the gas and possible toxins.
The table isn't super fancy, but it isn't press board either. Chances are it will be stored for a few years. We do not want to get rid of it.
Given the aforementioned pros & cons of both, would you recommend attic or shed?
