Wow, it's so beautiful. And it folds up too so I can stick it in my closet. That's what I thought. Reality is that it's 70 pounds. The guy who put it in my car must have been George Atlas eating his Wheaties because he carried it to my car like it was nothing. When I got home and tried to get it out of my car it seemed to have taken on greater gravational properties. Who makes a folding table where the box warns that it requires "team lifting"? I'm not even going to try to return it--not sure I could get it back into my car. It's going straight to Freecycle. I wish I could keep it--it really is beautiful, but I'm afraid if I tried to store it in my closet during the next earthquake it might fall and crush me.
This table is sturdier than I expected, and the teak top is beautiful. Our only two issues are 1) the cross bracing (necessary to fold up and store which is a must for our small seasonal space) interferes with the knee space when sitting, which doesn't bother me but drives my husband crazy. 2) The only 'assembly' required is tightening the bolts on the folding braces. The metal tool provided was too soft and bent, so we used a 'real' tool. During general tightening (I'm not she-woman) one of the bolts completely sheared off. Because of the paint application we were unable to simply remove the bolt and replace it. World Market made it extremely easy to return the table and is supposedly shipping a new one quickly. Overall I think we'll be very happy with the table.
I did a lot of searching for the right table for a small outdoor space. This table is a little more narrow than a traditional patio dining table which helped me to maximize the space in my city yard. The turquoise color is a little more subtle in person which is a plus in my opinion. The wood looks fantastic. This was the perfect addition to my city garden oasis.
