This is a high end table in every way. Hard maple is smooth and virtually grainless but still has beautiful grain patterns. The best of everything in this table with extremely hard surfaces and smooth and easy to clean. Goes incredibly well with our French country chairs, craftsman chairs and x back chairs. The base is poplar but top is hard maple. Base price is for any size up to 8ft long and 42 wide. Bigger runs more so call for pricing.
