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.
The glass table top had some scratches when it first arrived and Overstock support was the BEST in getting it replaced quickly and easily! We LOVE our new dining set. Paired this table with the LYNA Dining chairs (set of 4) and it's just lovely. This table is a little bigger than the one that comes with the dining chair set, which was worth paying a little more in our case.
