    Solid, but pale

    By Mad for Cherrywood

    from Eugene, OR

    Customer comments about Parsons Leg 72x36 Table:

    No complaints about the workmanship of the top, which seems well constructed. The solid cherry wood has decent figuring and character, but after 6 weeks the color is still paler than the very best quality cherry would be. Perhaps it will richen with time although it hasn't changed noticeably so far. The finish seems durable, repels water and smudges, and looks good. The necessity for lateral support braces on the underside of the top is understandable but unfortunate because most rolling file drawer units will not fit underneath.

    The Parsons legs look good and are sturdy enough for my application, although they might not be for everyone -- they screw directly into the wood, and at just 3/4" or so long, the screws would likely be easily stripped with too much side-loading.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The poor delivery guy's partner ran out on him the day before he was to make half a dozen deliveries scattered over hundreds of miles. Nevertheless, he was cheerful and had a "get 'er done" attitude. He claimed that R & B is a great company to work for.

    Quality Not What It Used To Be

    By Longtime R&B Customer

    from Denver, CO

    Pros

    • Good Quality Steel Legs

    Cons

    • Poor finish
    • Poor quality
    • Poor Quality Wood Top

    Best Uses

    • Larger Offices

    Customer comments about Parsons Leg 60x36 Table:

    We have purchased a great deal of furniture from R&B over the years - including several other cherry butcher-block Parsons Tables.

    It would appear that, in the interim between our purchases, R&B has changed manufacturers or the manufacturing specifications of the cherry butcher-block table top.

    The previously purchased cherry butcher-block tables, desks, and returns were of higher quality than this latest purchase:

    The older tables have a thicker, glossy lacquer finish on them, a softer, round-over eased edge, required no external wood stiffeners, and are made of full-length strips of cherry wood - no finger joints!

    In contrast, the new table has a thin, matte finish, fairly sharp edges that have been barely eased, cheesy external wood stiffeners, and is made from small bits of scrap cherry wood - none longer than 24" - that have been finger-jointed together. The finger joints are even visible when you look at the desk from the side.

    Also, the manufacturer's placement of the external wood stiffeners on the underside of the return, interfere with the placement of the connector plate used to connect it to other Parsons tables, e.g. to form an L-shape.

    This new table top appears for be manufactuered by American Woods, Inc. and is clearly of inferior quality to the butcher-block tables we have purchased from R&B over the years.

    I didn't notice if the price R&B charges for this new table is much less than the old design - but it should be!

    I hope this drop in quality, for this one product, is not indicative of changes across the entire R&B product line, as that might make this our last purchase from R&B.

      Customer comments about Parsons Leg 60x36 Table:

      It would be awesome if you got to choose the length of the legs. I sometimes wish my desk was an inch or two shorter.

      However, it is a great, straightforward desk. Because there are no drawers underneath, I can sit however I like. I also enjoyed ordering a custom return (24" square, left side) to fit my space and work habits.

      I have the cherry butcher-block top. After 3/4 year of intensive use, I have started wearing some areas of the finish more smooth than others (you can only tell by touch), and have made some superficial scratches in it. However, because the desk is so simple, I know that if I ever choose to refinish it, that won't be difficult at all.

          We use R&B parsons tables as desks and conference tables in our loft office space. Bought 6 60x36 and 6 24x48 nearly eight years ago to set up the space; just expanded and added several more. They're simple, durable, great quality, wear incredibly well (we can't tell the difference between old and new). And R&B's service - delivery and otherwise - has been exceptional. Thanks!

              Customer comments about Parsons Leg 72x30 Table:

              I bought this work table because I really liked the no-nonsense simplcity of it's design. It has the perfect dimensions for my workspace needs and is minimalistic and well crafted. The cherry is a beautiful color. However having 3 clearly visible 1-1/2" by 2" wood reinforcemet bands screw-mounted nearly the full length, width-wise, on the underside of the desktop kills a lot of the intended simplcity of this design. (I should mention that these are not visble at all in the catalouge images.) These also limit where my chair can be pushed in because they bump into the armrests, incredibly. I know these are in place to prevent warping of the desktop, but this reads as an ad-hoc fix to poorly joined wood. At least if preventive reinforcing was necessary after joining it could have been done with flush mounted--or nearly flush mounted--steel. What's the point of having a simple desk design with clean lines if you're going to attach blocks of wood to it? And the chair interference is a bit maddening. Alas, it's not perfect, but it will do for now.

                I chose these legs and a solid oak table top for my main work desk and have loved it even more than expected. The top is beautiful enough that I don't want to leave a cluttered desk at the end of the day, and it's big enough for my small work group to gather around effectively when we work together. It's far more functional than I expected. And it looks great, too.

                  I scoured the internet for durable and high quality table legs for my office table. R&B had the best deal as well as the best return policy if I changed my mind (but I also live near their distribution center, which has free returns). These legs plus a cheap maple butcher block top from another retailer, and I have something that looks like it's from R&B, but for a fraction of the price.

                      I paired the Parsons legs with a cherry butcher block top, which makes a beautiful desk. It looks light and elegant, and even though it is quite large, it doesn't look massive, which was important in an office/bedroom combined space.
