This is the most versatile piece of furniture I own. I typically keep it behind the sofa (folded up to 19x50 with a lamp on top) but open it up (to either 30x50 or 50x50) when we play a board game or use it as a computer desk. It literally took 10 minutes to assemble once the bubble wrap was off and it is all wood--no composite junk! It IS somewhat more "red" than the picture, but then it IS cherry colored. I worried that the hinges would sag when the sides were folded open, but no worries--there are stabilizer "bars" that pull out to support them from underneath as in a "draw" table. Shipped fast. Love it!
Arrived in good condition. The only thing that I was disappointed in was the color of it. The picture of it on overstock does not represent the right color. It is very much on the orange side of brown but it would be too difficult to send back to overstocked, so I am keeping it.
This is excellent quality, very heavy and sturdy. Well packed and easy to assemble. A couple of washers were missing for the bolts, but Overstock said they contacted the manufacturer and the washers are being sent to me. I would call the color medium cherry instead of dark cherry. I am using it in my dining room instead of a buffet because of its versatility. I can fold out the table top on one or both sides, to use for serving or for extra seating. Love it! Have received lots of compliments on it.
Fast shipping. The quality is superb. I have a large great room and want to use it as a "game" table. This is all wood no composite on this piece of furniture. Assembly was a charm...my husband had it together before the Nightly News was over (less than 1/2 hour). If this is something you are looking for...just get it. This table WILL NOT disappoint.
Have used as sofa table, dining table for 4, computer table... Space-saving, versatile, attractive.

This rustic looking table seems quite versatile as it will expand to twice it's size. There are a pair of pegs on both sides that pull out to support the leaves. I have not used the expansion part of the table but hopefully it will be supportive enough. It is a little redder in color than the dark cherry finish they describe.
After moving into a new home I needed to a table for a bedroom office that could expand large enough to fit a full size drafting board but also tuck away and look nice when not being used. This table is absolutely perfect! When I'm not using it as a desk it sets as a side board with decor on it in the guest bedroom/office and looks very classy. The wood and finish are very pretty and true to the picture. When I open it up and spread it all out, I have a ton of space for my laptop, papers, or drafting board. It is very sturdy and the construction is high quality. It arrived in two days I was able to put it together in no time. It probably took me longer to get it out of the packaging than it did to set it up (it was packaged VERY well). I cannot say enough great things about this table. If you are considering this purchase - do it, you won't be disappointed!
Very nice quality and can seat 4-6 for dinner as well as serve as a buffet table or sofa table. Made of solid wood. Only problem is that our parrot found it to be a tasty treat so try to keep pets from gnawing on it. It is too nice to be used as food!
Like many of the reviews state there were some minor dings since it is a soft wood. It did have quite a potent smell when I first opened it but that wore off after a few days of being out of the box. The color was a little more orange than expected but over all it's a nice table and great for those days you have extra company!
I was so impressed at the packing/shipping of this table. Putting it together took 4 hands, but that was not a problem. Until we put the top on, which came already assembled, and one side was way off track. I spoke with customer service at OS and they were absolutely wonderful. We worked out a solution in which i did not have to ship this heavy table back. I will take out some screws and realign. BEAUTIFUL table.
Came well-boxed & wrapped. Very easy for 1 person with no handiwork skills to put together. The drop down sections are well-supported. A sturdy table/desk for my small living room . Have had many compliments on it. It is a reddish/orange mahogany, which I like.
The reviews regarding how orange the finish on this table is were spot on so I should not be overly disappointed by that but I had thought that since everyone claimed it was a solid wood product I might just refinish it to my taste. The one thing I am VERY disappointed in and this did not show on the pictures nor did anyone mention it - is the groves routed into the top of the table making it look like a cheap rustic piece. To me the styling is somewhat contemporary and I would have much preferred a smooth top. Still thinking about refinishing it and that would have been a lot simpler without the stupid groves. The legs were preassembled and seem to be a bit wobbly. At the time the table came I was getting ready for the holidays and really needed this item so altho I was disappointed I put it together and used it as I did not have time to wait for something else. I shopped locally before I ordered it for a similar table in my town and there was nothing so I was caught in a weak moment. Not sure what it would have cost to return an item this heavy but figured it would not be worth it to pay the return shipping. Never been this disappointed in something I purchased from Overstock before.
Good contemporary design, nice wood. Quality belies the cost, but it did require a little tweaking to correct the slight warp in one of the leaves. If it hadn't worked I would have been unhappy, but the savings made it well worth the trouble. I'm looking forward to using it in many ways for many years.
