Go ahead and buy it!! Of all the things I have bought from Overstock, this table is the best value for the money. Solid wood and very well made! This table is very similar to the *** ****. I have wanted that table for a loooong time, but it's quite an investment. The two differences are that the C & B table's legs are one solid piece of wood and the *** is four solid pieces joined to make the block leg. Both tables are done in a butcher block style with Stockholm table in two inch solid strips as compared to the **** table that has four inch solid strips. The wood is smooth and blends well, so the top is not busy at all. Both are solid European White Oak and rustic and modern at the same time. The top has natural knots and some long natural cracks. I just love it! Very smooth and it came with a coat of oil. You will need to apply more mineral oil once it arrives or beeswax. I prefer the wax. The only complaint came from my husband about the screws to attach the legs. He said the threads were not the best. Other than that, it's perfect! Thank you, Overstock. And please start carrying a 48" dining bench with this line. Otherwise, I will have to pay ******and by the ****!
