Winsome Wood 42 Inch Round Table
I looked around for quite a while and could not find a table at any price that better suited my needs, but I guess that speaks more about my needs than about the table itself. Still, it is a great design.
It came in two pieces, the folding top and the base. The base is actually two fixed legs and two hinged legs that pivot out to support each leaf when the table is extended, and fold in close to the fixed legs to allow the leaf to drop. It took me all of five minutes to line up the pieces and screw in the four bolts that hold them together.
Not all was perfect, though. While I know better than to overtighten bolts when working with wood, one of the four pressed-in bolt receivers apparently broke free and "stripped", so the table is being held together by only three bolts, not the four it was designed for. That seems to be no problem because it is sturdy and, had I not been the one to put it together, I'd never have known.
Also, there were a couple depressions--I don't want to say dents because that implies much greater problems than actually exist--on the surface of the folding top. These were certainly not worth the effort involved to send the table back as damaged. Finally, someone at the assembly plant, made pencil marks and wrote numbers, which were later clearcoated over and are now impossible to remove, on the hinged end of one leaf. When the leaf is folded down, the writing is visible.
For the $152 I paid for it, this table is a bargain. Even with the flaws I mentioned, it looks great and it is quite sturdy.
Bottom line: If I had it to do over, I'd buy it again, with zero hesitation.
