This table is made of solid oak. The top could be well sanded but it would always work very well. We only have six chairs, one of which we used for parts to fix the others, and our beloved puppy wanted to chew on two of them, as seen in the photos. The table is 4 feet in diameter with a 2 foot insert. For a total table length of 6 feet. I'm looking for $300. The table is very sturdy.
