    Customer comments about Adams 72x36 Extension Dining Table with Two-14w Leaves:

    We shopped a very long time to find a table that was just the right size and esthetic for our space. The Adams is exactly the table we were searching for. Just the right size and a beautiful natural walnut coordinates well with our natural hickory floors and dark stained cherry cabinets with black granite countertops. Makes our dining room look so polished and put together.

      Customer comments about Adams 72x36 Extension Dining Table with Two-14w Leaves:

      We purchased the Adams extension table in a custom size when we bought our apartment. The option to customize both width and length enabled us to get the most out of our limited space. The table is small enough for everyday use, but big enough (with both leaves) to seat 10 or more at the holidays.

      We got the cherry color, which "plays nicely" with our teak living room furniture as well our maple floors. The wood has deepened in shade, to a lovely hue. Note that light plays a part, so the leaves -- which are typically stored -- are now a paler color than the table; this was as expected with cherry, but good to be aware of.

      But the most impressive part has been the service. After owning the table for about 8 months, I found that it wouldn't close fully after removing the leaves from a recent dinner party. I emailed Room & Board, got an immediate response, and within a week I had a technician in my home who repaired the table quickly and carefully and resolved the problem fully. "You'll have this table for many years," he said, noting the durable, sold construction.

      I expect that he is right. In time, when we have more space, I think it will make the transition nicely to a kitchen table. The finish is certainly not invincible, but it is very attractive, and we've been very happy with how it has worn.

      The whole experience definitely makes me more inclined to buy from Room & Board again in the future.

        We were able to figure out a good size to buy a dining room table for our new small space. The associate took our dimentions and we figured out the proper size for our table and chairs. The table fits perfectly in the area that we had as do the chairs that we picked to go with it. The table had a few minor scratches when delivered but they were repaired.

          Customer comments about Adams 72x36 Extension Dining Table with Two-14w Leaves:

          This table looks and feels great. The construction quality is very high, and all parts of it including the leaves are rock solid. We bought it in walnut and have experienced none of the finish issues that are referenced in other reviews.

          Our condo is relatively tight so the table has double duty as a desk and daily dining table, and is holding up great. The price was a bit higher than we'd initially budgeted for, but now that we have it, its clear that it will last forever and feel great about the purchase.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The delivery was scheduled for a window from 12-2pm, and they nailed it, arriving at 12:02. The team brought the table up to our 3rd floor walkup and had the table assembled and packing material removed in about 10 minutes. Very happy with the experience.

          Customer comments about Adams 72x36 Extension Dining Table with Two-14w Leaves:

          Chose this table because it is narrower and works better in our small dining area. Unfortunately the finish is of poor quality and the top of the table looks awful--dull and graying in large patches. This may be the result of heat --warm dishes or laptops--we are still uncertain, but this is our best guess for cause. We try to always make sure to put something protective on the table --placements, trivets, etc--but this really doesn't completely eliminate the color changes from occurring.

              This is the second table like this I have purchased. I like the look, the wood, and the versatility. I had to downsize when moving into a townhouse, so my larger table went to others. My first table did not have the leaf self-storage feature. I was scepticle of the self storing feature after reading a review that said people were hitting their knees on it. So, when my table arrived, I promptly sat at it to see if my knees hit. Unfortunately, they did. I unscrewed the self-storing boards and took them off. It was simple. I will be storing my leaves in a closet, just like my old table, but I have no problem with that since I LOVE this table! The two extension leaves allow me to expand table size when entertaining.

                Great quality product with beautiful wood. Works well in an open plan apartment as it is not too bulky (seems thinner than other tables)- but with the extendable leaves it is suitable for gatherings/family meals. Love that the leaves hide under the table when not in use. After 2 months the table is wearing well (have had no issues with the finish scratching like other reviewers which might be down to the wood type- we have it in Walnut).

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivered on time by friendly guys who even took their shoes off. We had a slight issue with the lock mechanism being on too tight and it was fixed very promptly by a capable guy who was careful and tidy.

                The table is beautiful and seems to be well-constructed. My husband and I love the look of it, but realized that the finish used on the table is very thin so the table shows EVERYTHING. We use placemats and table cloths but are terrified to leave a mark on the table. The table really shows smudges (even from resting your hand on it) and god forbid a scratch. Would not recommend if you have children. We are getting a piece of glass fitted for the top which compromises the look, but will save us the stress.

                The table arrived on the date and time as promised. A board on the table top was warped. Upon calling customer service and explaining the problem an exchange was immediately set up within several days. The delivery of the new table and removal of the old could not have gone more smoothly. I am very impressed with the customer service of R&B and will certainly be a future customer.

                    Q:

                    Would a 50" deep table be able to comfortably fit 2 people at each end of the table and would their chairs fit between the table legs.

                      A:

                      A 50” deep table would typically fit two people at the ends. There is only approximately 40” of space between the table legs, however. Whether or not two chairs would fit between the two table legs depends entirely on the width of each chair. Make certain to allow for several inches in between the chairs so your guests have room to move them in and out with ease.

                    Q:

                    I understand that cherry darkens as it ages when exposed to sunlight. This in part must depend on how much it has darkened before it has been delivered. Could you share how much your cherry furniture darkens (ideally with before and after pictures)? We just received the Adams Extension table in cherry and are debating whether it will darken sufficiently or if we need to exchange for the walnut.

                    One of the reviewers mentioned that the walnut finish was not lacquered...is this correct? Does the walnut finish hold up better to scratching (ie, is the wood hard enough to deter scratching and/or the finish deep enough that scratching is less evident?) Thank you.

                      A:

                      The Adams extension dining table collection is finished with a clear lacquer. Even though walnut is a hardwood, it can still scratch if a sharp or rough object is dragged across the surface. To prevent scratches, we recommend using adhesive felt pads, trivets, coasters and placemats.

                      That may depend more on the seat height, most of our dining chairs have a 18-19 inch seat height.

                    Could you advice if Pledge can be used to care for this table? If so, what's a good frequency?

                      Yes, the legs bolt in at each corner so they are removable. At delivery we would assemble the table in its location.

                    Q:

                    If the table is custom ordered to a different width, can it still be made as an extension table? We are looking for a 72x42 dining table with leaves.

                    Could you tell if the charcoal is a black or dark brown stain? It looks dark brown online.

                      A:

                      The charcoal stain is closer to black than a brown stain. However, it isn't a full black but a grey and as a stain the wood grain and color come through a bit.
