Dine in style outdoors with this yellow balau gateleg table, made from environmentally sustainable hardwood comparable to premium teak. Classic round shape and convenient size mean this beautiful table makes a big impact in small spaces....more
This beautiful table is perfect for indoor or outdoor use. The third great thing about it is that it is round! No more corners to bump into! I wish I had had this table when the grandchildren were young! I didn't know anything about Balau wood, so I looked it up on Wiki and the only thing that can beat it in terms of water resistance and overall durability is Teak. But teak is
heavier than most mahoganies and is cost-prohibitive. Balau is the perfect middle-ground. It is porous, so it can be stained a darker tone if you would prefer a rosewood or walnut. I ran my hands over the entire surface, legs and all, and there were a
couple of places that needed a light sanding with steel wool. They were just a little rough - no splinters - and the soft steel wool took care of them in a few minutes. Highly recommended! Now I must buy the lazy susan.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Lighter outdoors, slightly darker inside - both beautiful

The Table showed up in about four days after ordering. One day earlier than expected. It came fully assembled in the box.
The box was undamaged but one of the folding legs had been jarred enough to rip out the screws on one of the hinges. After looking at the damage it was obvious that the 1/2" screws were not enough for the size of the leg. I removed all the screws from the hinges on the folding legs and replaced them with longer ones.
Structurally it's about as strong as a table in this price range would be. I wouldn't sit on the table top for fear of damage, but it is more that strong enough to eat at.
The finish on the top is smooth. But it probably should have another coat. The legs are rougher and had not been smoothed down very well. It could use another coat as well.
The wood is very nice. The color is about what I expected. The folding legs lock in the open position but did not have a hole to lock in the closed position, so I added one.
All in all I am not unhappy. The damage was easily fixed (and improved upon). And it arrived quicker than expected.
Love the style of this table and was excited that we could fold it up and put it away for the winter. We live in a very cool area by the ocean. The top of some of the edges are rolling up and there are cracks in the wood. Too bad. I was hoping for a table I could keep for a long time,
we have just begun using our 2 tables and we love them. they are pretty, have great and graceful style, we keep one opened up for use and the other one will take up NO space when folded down completely or 1/2 opened still looks graceful and is functional for 3 diners---i also appreciate that it absorbs glass rings from moisture and is a great table for outdoor spaces!! We really love them.
This table is real wood and a great price! Perfect size to fit 4 people and doesn't take up too much space! We paired it with blue metal chairs from overstock and it looks great and is functional. We live in CA where it hardly ever rains but it is still hardly even weathering. I just rub some oil into the wood occasionally and it looks great. Very happy with this table.
I have shopped for the last two months to find just the right table for my deck and this one fits the bill. My husband was apprehensive about purchasing it off the internet without seeing it in person. But after it arrived and was set up he was extremely impressed.

Answers from Overstock confusing. Is it 7 or 12 inches in diameter when folded? Do both sides fold down at the same time? One answer said it didn't even foldlillyflower123 on May 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
When folded this is 7 inches. Yes both sides fold down at the same time.
That last answer is wrong.
