by carriej Each one is unique...
I usually don't like purchasing furniture unseen but I thought I'd give this a try because the design of it would fit well into my interior style. I know that each design is one of a kind but of course the one they show on the website is about as perfect as it will be. The first one I ordered had a top with two boards and a huge split between the two. I don't mind rustic but this just looked bad so I rejected the delivery. The second one just came a few days ago and was better but still had chunks of boards missing where random pieces were placed to fill the gaps and the legs were not as sturdy as the first but I kept it. I would have preferred one that at least had a top that wasn't too shabby chic. The price point is good and the aesthetics are nice if you get a decent one. If you don't mind being surprised by having a 'one of a kind' piece, then you will like this!

No two are exactly alike.
The table I received looked very much like this, only the color is a little richer in person and mine has three worn metal plates patching parts of the table. The wood is very smooth but not perfectly flat. It feels like it's been worn down by countless hands and elbows over decades of use.
I'm happy with the proportions. The picture makes the legs look a little flimsy. They aren't. The hinges work well and the table is not hard to fold up and put out of the way. I'm using it as a skinny dining table in my very small apartment. It comfortably seats four. I also move it over to the galley kitchen to use as a kitchen island when cooking and entertaining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TaylorKitCat Cool table, questionable construction
We really love this table. To me, the scratches and dings are what add character to it. (Ours even has a little letter ?C? carved in the top near one of the corners.) And we love the metal ?patches? on the legs, and our table ? they are all unique ? also has a patch of metal on the top of the table in a corner. The legs can be folded inside the table, so that the table can be stacked/leaned/stored against the wall much like a long mirror could be.
We ordered the brown finish; unlike the online photos, ours does not have any blue undertones, but again, they are all unique, so we were not bummed out by this. What we WERE a little disappointed in is that the table?s legs are uneven. While the table CAN stand on its own, it IS wobbly unless propped up against something for support - in our case we are using a wall in our foyer to stabilize it.
We understood when purchasing this table it was going to be made from reclaimed wood, and therefore have ?birthmarks? (a.k.a. euphemism for ?flaws?), but the fact that one leg is shorter than the other three just makes me think whoever constructed this particular table got a little lazy. They could have easily lengthened the leg with another piece of wood, or even some metal.
All in all a very cool table. Everyone who comes through our front door comments on it. We bought it when it was on sale, so we can live with it being uneven. I would recommend, with the caveat that if you plan on this table being free-standing, then you might have to go through the rigmarole to swap yours if you run into the same issue we did...
