Winsome Wood 42 Inch Round Table

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.

  1. We purchased this table for a kitchen "nook" that needed a round table. Most round tables are pedestal in style which my husband did not want. The table is of good quality wood and workmanship. It was easy to assemble and works perfectly for us. Assembly was very easy. The only thing we quickly discovered is when moving the open table the legs fold on their own.

    I ordered this table for my fifth wheel camper. We needed a small table that could be adjusted for size, and this one fits the bill nicely. It's perfect for two of us, expands for four to play cards, and tucks away into a small space for storage. It appears to be constructed well. My only problem was with the shipping. The company sent an email saying it had been shipped, but weeks later I got a second email saying the item was back-ordered. It took almost a month to ge the table here, and the communication with the company was confusing and incomplete. I finally reached a representative who was helpful and courteous in clarifying the situation.

  3. I had never ordered furniture online like this so I didn't know what to expect. It turned out great, just what I wanted. It was delivered right on time and only had a couple of pieces to put together.

  5. This item came in, in great shape. Took my 23 year old daughter 4 min. to assemble and I sat 5 extra people around it for the holiday meal. Afterwards, it is in my laundry room. Very small when folded and serves as a half circle folding table. I am buying another right now. I got it in 2 days from Amazon with Prime Shipping.

  6. When I moved into my apartment from a house, my diningroom table was too large for my needs. So I gave it away and bought this table to replace my old one. For a singel handecapped person, this table is perfect for my needs.

    I had trouble finding a 'wood' kitchen table until I saw this one. Most of the local retailers only stock dark table sets. The packages arrived on time and with no damage. Instructions were clear and concise and the pre-drilled wood fit together easily. My only gripe is the tool provided. Ended up using my own socket wrench to assemble the set and am sure that I saved several hours of labor. The stain was light as I had imagined, and beautifully matched the floor and kitchen cabinets. The chairs are stable and comfortable. I highly recommend this set to anyone who wants a nice 'wood' table that is light and smart. Good job!

  8. This is the type of table I wanted and this is the type of table I got. I am very satisfied because the item I received was exactly what was described in the Amazon page: color, wood, size, model... The package arrived very propmtly. The mounting of the table was easy. I found the instructions sheet clear and simple.

  9. I am thrilled with my new table! It arrived in great shape only two days after I ordered it. I had a little trouble putting the legs on because I am 70 years old and partially disabled. Any younger healthy person will have no trouble putting this neat table together. I strongly recommend this product. I also recommend that if you buy one, be sure to mount the legs after taking the tape and cardboard off the bottom of the legs. Then make sure the gate part of each section is properly placed on the outside of the wooden "stops" on the bottom of the table top before screwing in the bolts. You don't even have to have tools; everything that you need is in the box. The only problem is with the instructions. There are only crude drawings to follow. It would be helpful if the manufacturer would provide a few assembly hints, such as the one I outlined above. Now I need matching chairs!
