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.
I was nervous to buy a product without any reviews, but so glad I did. It arrived promptly (the day before thanksgiving, right when I needed it). The photo on the listing does not do it justice. It is really stunning and half the price of similar tables, especially for an 8 foot table. We got the cinnamon, which looks so more red and glossy in that terrible picture. It is a lighter, warm, medium brown. It has a lovely handscraped texture, but I wouldn't call it distressed. The finish is matte, without a shine, which I love. We've only had one meal on it so can't say how it will hold up, but I didn't see any scratches from plates. It's solid wood, feels very sturdy and doesn't wobble. Highly recommend if you're looking for a farmtable.
What I loved most about this table was the dark espresso finish. While the table felt fairly modern in its minimalist approach, the finish made the table feel sophisticated. With a reasonable assembly time, I found this table perfect for my dining room! With a large table size providing plenty of space, I can rest assured that more of my friends and family can be seated during the holidays. Also, I found that rubber wood is considered an environmentally friendly building material. This table works for me!
