This table is well made (in Brazil) and very solid. Please note that it is 1 inch higher than is usual for dining tables. This could be a factor is you're planning to use it for a desd of other purposes where ergonomics matter. Assembly takes only 2 screws in each leg. But since you're screwing into very hard wood, it does take some effort. I used by electric screwdriver with hex head bit. I deduct a star becasue my one complaint is that the finish, while making it impervious to most staining, is quite glossy. I have the Barnwood. The picture led me to expect a more matte, natural finish. But, I like the table so much, I decided to keep. And also because it was so heavy, returning it was $*** Once the table is dressed, the gloss is much less noticeable. But I do intend to apply a light sanding to knock down some of the shine. Also, the pics show a grey undertone. The Barnwood does not have that undertone. To me that was actually a positive. As others have stated, it is a very rustic surface with knots and all. The "boards" are not flush but I have not had any problems with glasses tipping or anything like that. Gives it a timeworn look.But there are no splinters or rough edges that might harm little ones.
As a Professional Home Stager, I'm always on the lookout for things that are out of the ordinary. This is a great dining table for those with a more limited space or those not wanting to take up much visual space. It's a cool design-make note that the base actually attaches to the glass top. It's a muted gold, not shiny.
