I am very happy with this purchase. We decided it was time to replace a less-than-ideal square table in our kitchen nook with something more appropriate for the setting. Being that the room is small, it is much easier to walk around this round table than our former table which had corners. It is constructed solidly...it is a substantial piece and will require two people if it needs to be moved. The removable leaf is a real plus...the table is a nice compact size without the leaf, and there's ample space for guests when it is in place. And, the feet are adjustable to remove any wobble in case the underlying floor is uneven - a good feature.
The one thing I was surprised about (and this is because their is not a clear image of the table top in the listing) was that the table surface is comprised of short pieces of wood spliced together with "finger joints"...(look up images of "finger joint" on Google). At first I wasn't sure what to make of it - because I've never seen furniture displaying this feature so prominently. But, on second glance I had no issue with it. I knew from the photo that the table top was going to be comprised of short pieces of wood abutting in some way, and this type of jointing actually adds additional texture and character to an already nice table.
It is is not without flaws; I discovered a few little cracks in some of the wood that make up the pedestal. But they do not detract from the soundness of the unit, nor it's appeal. And, I did not buy this as a showpiece; but rather as an attractive, functional table for a breakfast nook. And that is exactly what I got...for a very good price.
I've been looking for a modern expandable table for a while now, but I never considered this one because the name "Rubberwood Farmhouse" led me to believe it wouldn't fit my loft. Took a chance anyway bc I saw a similar, yet more expensive model, in a store and I. love. it! The chunky, sturdy white base and the light wood tabletop really complement and brighten up my surrounding decor. This table looks great against hardwood floors, and it's so nice to have a versatile solution for when you need more/less space.

This was exactly what I was looking for! I have had a "farmhouse" kitchen table as my main dining place for years. One son is married and the other engaged-so squeezing us all together at my small table was getting uncomfortable. I do not have a huge amount of space to work with either-so the fact that this table has a removable leaf was the main selling point for me. It matched my chairs I already had beautifully-so not having the added cost of replacing chairs was another "selling" point. My son put it together in about an hour and I love it. If you are looking for a nicely made inexpensive piece of furniture I would say go for it. It sure beats paying $700 or $800 for a whole new dining set!

So, I looked all over for a table like this. I knew exactly what I wanted - something smallish for my apartment, round, in a light wood and that could extend into something bigger with a leaf. This table met all of my desires and I was really happy to find it. It arrived quickly and was easy to put together. I was nervous b/c another reviewer said you need two people to put the top on but found it easy to assemble myself. It looks like putting the leaf in and taking it out will also be a cinch.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is there was a ding on it when it arrived - a scratched area on the side of the table top that was about an inch in diameter where the finish has been scratched off. A friend says it gives the table some character so I am not really worrying about it, but it was the first thing I saw when I opened the box.
I scoured the internet looking for a small diameter farmhouse table with a natural top and white bottom. All were VERY expensive or larger diameter. When I found this one, I was very excited. I t was even better than I thought it would be. Well made, heavy and easy to assemble. Fits in my small breakfast nook perfectly. A very pleasant surprise :)
Great hardwood table, assembled easily. Was smaller than I expected but actually works better in the space I have. Cleans easily. Partnered with the Country Cottage Dining Chairs, (I bought two pairs) It looks very nice and homey in my small kitchen. Made in Malaysia.
Great table! We don't have any complaints about the table. Other reviews let us know it may need extra coats of lacquer/varnish or whatever but we didn't do that. That would be a Summer time project for another day for us. The table was super easy to put together and has been just fine for us. We have a messy four year old and 18 moth old so the table gets pretty abused. The only thing we have noticed are a couple long 'dents' in the table top. They are not scratches in the wood but look like something, a butter knife or spoon, may have been harshly dragged across the top of the table creating these 2-6 inch long 'dents'. They aren't very noticeable and our house anything but fancy so we just cover them place mats and guests never see them :). One nice thing about this table is it is long and skinny. So if you have a small, narrow space it fits very well!! We have a 12 foot wide area which has a pantry door on one side and a sliding glass door on the opposite. The pantry side is also the walkway between the living room and kitchen. This table leaves us space to walk to the kitchen and to go out the sliding door! Our three other table choices before this one did not give us this flexibility in this house. This table was a nice fit in this type of space. Oh, and it fits six people easy unlike our other four seaters which took up more room. Adding more chairs or people and it is way too crowded. If you choose this table we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
What is the exact height from the floor to the bottom of the white edging under the lid of the table top? I need to fit my arm chairs UNDER that edging.tomnkathy on Aug 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Rubberwood-Eco Friendly !
Rubberwood is often the most misunderstood species of wood in the furniture industry. The name rubberwood invokes a variety of misconceptions as to it's features and to it's durability. Rubberwood (also called Parawood in Thailand) is the standard common name for the timber of Hevea brasiliensis.
In fact, rubberwood is one of the more durable lumbers used in the manufacturing of today's home furnishings. As a member of the maple family, rubberwood has a dense grain character that is easily controlled in the kiln drying process. Rubberwood has very little shrinkage making it one of the more stable construction materials availabe for furniture manufacturing.
Like maple, rubberwood is a sap producing species. In the case of maple, it is sap; in the case of rubberwood, it is latex. Rubberwood produces all the latex used in the world for all rubber based products.
There is one more important feature of rubberwood that is very important in today's world. Rubberwood is the most ecologically "friendly" lumber used in today's furniture industry. After the economic life of the rubber tree, which is generally 26-30 years, the latex yields become extremely low and the planters then fell the rubber trees and plant new ones. So, unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is used only after it completes it's latex producing cycle and dies. This wood is therefore eco-friendly in the sense that we are now using what was going as waste.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 18, 2013
The leaf extensions are not stored; they are pushed together to make the table. You can remove the tabletop, which is in the middle of the two leaf extensions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 10, 2012
