This is a beautiful console table. It is solid! The clean lines and handsome wood make it a fantastic piece for my family room. It shipped well, and we had to put it together, but the instructions were easy so it took just few minutes. If you look online for a piece like this from any other manufacturer you would pay double the price! It is a delight to have something made by hand, with care and reclaimed wood! Dan was a good communicator, letting me know when he was done and sending pictures before shipping. Thanks Dan!!

Love it! Was a bit of a wait because they make them to order (which is what I wanted) but worth it. Thanks!
