I know each of these tables is different, and I am not a perfectionist in any way, shape or fashion. I tend to like odd and flawed. This table is just not well made, there is some stain thrown on...with dirt and crusty things sticking out. The table is wobbly and a prop like leg seems to be added as an after thought..with one nail. I can move it up and down side to side. Not a sturdy situation. The cracks and damage are for the most part fine with the exception of a large crack that actually makes 1/4 of the surface lower than the rest, on a slope. I wouldn't buy this again.
