I'm in a small apartment with very little counter space. I could use my dining table, it's wood but it has many cracks and grooves in it that the dough would definitely stick to the table. I was told to use plastic wrap or wax paper, theres got to be a better way. Any ideas or suggestions?

Not to be banal, but in the olden days, they'd always roll out pastry on a large board . Boards are easy to store because they can be rested vertically against a wall, between a refrigerator and a cabinet, in a cabinet, etc.
Otherwise they sell these mats made of silicon i think, they';re soft plastic and resist sliding around and hold the flour well.
Otherwise, roll between two pieces of parchment baking paper or waxed paper, but flatten the dough first with your hand so it's a thick disk, and flour it well.
