This charming farmhouse table will add a touch of country appeal to your dining room or kitchen. The table top has a 38-inch round table expandable to 60 inches, constructed of sturdy rubberwood....more
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!

I am very pleased with the quality of my farmhouse table. I would have given it 5 stars but we had a little problem when installing the extra leaf. Due to things not being aligned exactly my husband had to sand down a protruding corner before the table top and leaf would meet snugly enough....without doing this there would have been a crack between the two pieces. Overall I am very happy with my purchase!
ordered this table for my cottage. it's perfect, even better than we had hoped. went together easily (needed help to lift the top onto the base, but other than that, a 1 person job). it's very sturdy, but does not appear bulky. the painted finish is not perfect, but the irregularities are minimal and does not affect the overall look. the proportions are great, so that we decided to leave the leaf in. i love love love it.
I searched and searched for the right table for my kitchen. I do not have a separate dining room, so the table I needed had to look appropriate, as well as be expandable. I got exactly what I wanted. In a smaller kitchen, this works great as a round. When the family comes over, I can expand it to accommodate everybody. It goes great with my white cabinetry, and is extremely sturdy and well made. I shopped around and this was the best price i found. It was also very simple to assemble. My 9 year old niece helped Auntie and Uncle put it together. I would highly recommend it.
I needed a light wood round table that can expand for more seating if needed and this table was it. It was easy to put together. It is solid and well constructed. It easily slides open for the extra leaf and sits 6 people comfortably. Great table at a great price.
i have been looking at this table for quite some time... just ordered it for our cottage. love the fact that it's small for the 2 of us (90 % of the time) but expands when the kids are there.
the large substantial base suggests that the table will be very sturdy when the little ones are gathered around it.
has a nice, beachy, casual look to it, which fits right in with cottage living.
very pleased with the free shipping & promise of super quick delivery !

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
