This is a really nice piece. I've converted my kitchen entirely to a work (cooking) area, and this replaced the kitchen table. I put 24 inch stools on each side so folks can sit and talk to me while I cook. It's not really treated, so I beeswaxed the top, and mineral oiled the rest of it three or four times. My only problem is that the write-up and the person I called to confirm said that the piece is assembled, and it is NOT. I cost me $100 to get it assembled by a guy who assembles all my furniture, and it took him two hours. Imagine how long it would take me!! So,, Overstock, not a great value, but an average value, once all was said and done.
