I like to make quilts and needed a big table space to support the quilt while sewing, but any table would do that. I like this table because I can adjust it down to compensate for the height of my sewing machine, which sits on top of the table and is therefore higher than normal. Then, if I need to use the table to stand and cut out patterns and material I can adjust it to a standing height so I don't have to bend over and make my back hurt. When I first saw the adjustment bars I thought it was going to be hard to make changes but it is very quick and easy.
The other thing I really like is that it is very sturdy and doesn't "shake" when sewing like some other folding tables do.
My only disappointment was that the top has some texture to it...not much...but I would have preferred a totally smooth finish.
Ordered these tables to complete outfitting a new conference/training/meeting center. WOW! These tables are great quality, not "rickety" or wobbly. Well-made and extremely easy to set up. Lightweight enough for me (a woman) to set up and move around. Tops are smooth enough to serve as a writing surface. No assembly or tools needed -- they arrived in a box encased in a plastic bag -- just had to slide them out, open legs, and voila! I waited more than 4 months for these to return to stock -- SO GLAD I DID! Would recommend highly for home or office use. Overstock price was the lowest I found -- and when I considered the $2.95 shipping fee, I knew I had made the right choice.
The table is perfect! I'm using it in a small studio set up for a small business. The quality is much better than I expected ; the surface is perfect for any use, the table is strong and very firm. I recommend it to anyone who needs such a table for whatever their purpose. I would only add that the packing is suitable for the item but it would be much easier to unpack if 2 people tackled the opening and setting up. It's heavy, which is an excellent feature, but makes the dismantling of the package cumbersome and dependent upon greater strength than I have. I got through it alone, but it wasn't easy. However, once set up, the table exceeds all expectations.
I ordered this table to use as a sewing table. If you use more than one machine like I do, this will be a great purchase. I can keep three machines on this easily and I can't believe how nice it is to keep the machines out! The height is perfect and if you have the room for this length, you will love it. It would also make a great table for a buffet with a nice tablecloth!
Love this table. Using it in my home office. I got so tired of over priced desk that were not of good quality. Because I needed a desk for both of us, I needed the equivilant of two desks. This table did the trick. Very sturdy, Enough rooom for two people. Plus when I have a party, I can just clear it off, take it into another room and use it for extra eating areas!
This is a very practical table to have around. It can be used for extra seating at dinner parties, a buffet table, or makeshift desk/work surface. When not in use, it can be easily stored by folding the legs. It is very sturdy, yet not so heavy that it can not be moved. I was a little concerned that the 96" table might be prone to weakness/sagging in the center, but I can only see that maybe happening if someone loads the middle of it to its full 800lb limit. The beefy table top is supported the entire length by a steel frame. The cantilevered leg system is set back so that your legs will not make contact. I researched these "seminar" tables quite a bit before I pulled the trigger on this NPS model. It might be more expensive than the other brand, but you'll understand why when you see the quality of the product. Overstock shipped this product lightning fast too. I had it two days after I ordered it. I'm very happy with the table and Overstock.
I bought two of these tables for the holidays. With a large family getter larger and larger these were a necessity. Six chairs fit perfectly around them...72" round tablecloths drape nicely. They are easy to handle, not too heavy at all. I'm not the strongest woman by far, but I could easily set them up and break them down by myself. Delivery was fast about 4-5 days.
A family member suggested I keep one up year round!
