Original Poster

The table is SOLID OAK the chair legs are Veneer. You try lifting the table and you will see

A table is not a table without legs therefor it is not solid oak

Original Poster

The table AND table legs are solid oak!!!

I very much doubt anything sold by Homebase could be called 'top quality', especially furniture!

Hot from me, good price for solid oak with 4 chairs (chairs are rubberwood according to argos)

Those chairs are £30 each so take it from there

Awwww I'm going to give it heat purely because everyone is giving the poor fella a hard time. It's a cute table!

£185 for a solid oak table is a fantastic price.

I suspect the top is veneer. A solid oak top with that many joints would open up like crazy with shrinkage.

Got the bigger oval version of this table for £169 from Argos last year.... Very heavy but not great quality

The table top and legs are oak veneer. Please change your misleading title.

If the top is solid then it wont last very long!

oh ok, yes solid oak is not a long lasting material....on which planet?

On the planet where all wood shrinks and moves. The joints will open up eventually. FACT. If the top really is solid, it's made from lots of pieces of oak.

So solid oak with oak veneer? ok that's still a 100% oak table?

When will they stop making those chairs? Sick if the sight of that style

Title misleading. It is not a solid oak table. It is solid oak finished with an oak veneer. If you add a veneer it is not 100% oak.

Homebase furniture is garbage. Go to a real wood, real solid oak place and see the difference. 100% will need to be cared for and maintained. I can not see any instructions to do this..

Something to do witg that fact it has a veneer finish glued to the oak.

You wouldn't veneer over solid oak. Wheres the sense in that? If it's veneer then it will be veneered over mdf.

I hand crafted this table from one oak veneer tree!

I purchased this table a couple of months ago. I bought it with some different chairs as I don't like these fully faux leather chairs. The chairs I purchased were these http://www.homebase.co.uk/en/homebaseuk/furniture/dining-chairs/oakleigh-dining-pair-of-chairs---oak-885329

You can fit six chairs under this table easily, and eight chairs at a bit of a squash. The table does not extend.

I can confirm that the table is completely made of oak (apart from some metal fixtures to hold the legs on). The table top is solid oak - its made from multiple blocks of oak packed together in two layers. The legs are also solid blocks of oak, with a thin layer of oak (i.e. oak veneer) surrounding them on the side but not the top or the bottom. Without the veneer the sides of the legs would have a strange "blocky" pattern. It is not veneered over MDF as you can see the inner wood at both ends of the table leg.

I went to the Homebase store to look at the tables before buying, and this was the only table I could find which does not have a veneer top, and it was the one that looks the nicest in my opinion.

By the way - a single piece of oak the size of this table (i.e. not separate pieces of wood) would cost thousands.

It is extremely heavy (~50kg) and will not fit into a normal size car. I had to hire a 10-seater taxi to take it home.

Assembly is not complicated, but requires lifting of reasonably heavy bits of wood.

The table has been "finished" with oil rather than varnish or paint.

Overall I am extremely pleased with the purchase.

If anyone else has bought one of these, could you tell me what you use to care for the wood - i.e. polish / oil etc?

We purchased the same a week ago and the table is great value. Really happy with it. Heat added.

bloddy hell ,give the guy a break . its still a deal solid or not solid

do they do an extendable one?

Well yes I was a little taken aback at how quickly the Oak Connoisseurs trampled on this post, and basically claim that the item I have happily had in my dining room for the last month is little more than "cheap crap".

I suppose if it was a Raspberry Pi for £16 that would be voted a much better saving!! X)

Most oak tables are crafted this way with multiple pieces of oak bonded together..I know cos all av heard lately is salesman's speak speak..this is a good price..ave been told a table machined from English Oak in 1 piece would be over 1 easy

there is also a 6ft one with 6 chairs 2 of wich are fabric for £389. Both are reduced further.

What do you use to care for the wood? It seems to have been oiled in the factory, suggesting further oiling is the way forward?

I've had a look at the table today it is solid oak and if looked after will last for years....it's only 900mm which is the same as any solid oak breakfast bar, so will be fine
