Shipment arrived in about a week, well-protected packaging. Simple instructions, only tool needed was Allen wrench which was provided. Assembly took us 30 min only because we were so careful. Very solid, heavy, sturdy table. Extension has 2 tiny flip clips to allow extending. High quality slide mechanism, effortless to open and position the butterfly extension. Would work best with chairs with seat height 18" min. True white high gloss with brushed stainless base. Will seat 6, with extension 8, but could push to 10 if need be.
