We bought this table as a kid's craft table for a party we had. It was great! Very light-weight and HUGE! It was easy to set up and easy to store because of the thin way it folds. It is made of aluminum, so I can't imagine it lasting forever (why I rated the durability and workmanship only 3 stars). It isn't bad looking, but for an eating table or craft table, I would put a table cloth on it. The table sits a bit high, so for kids it's a little high to reach if they are sitting on a normal size chair. All in all it was a great purchase! And, choose "normal" shipping...we got it within three days...it was delivered really fast, even in the peak of the holiday shipping time.
