Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cs54 Not what it claims to be
This product is defective on many levels. 1) The frame is very flimsy - to get the full 31 inch height requires stacking two 1/8 inch thick angled support pieces end to end held together with a tap-together rivet and a screw making a very wobbly structure - no way would I trust this to support the 1700 lbs it says it will. 2) The bottom shelf is too small and falls through the frame. 3) Side panels screw holes don't align with the frame. 4) Assembly instructions were incomplete, inaccurate and there was not enough ink to read them. When you try to call Edsals "Call us before you return this" phone lines to get help, both numbers are always busy - no surprise there. This could have been a very good product if Edsal had taken some care and done it right.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Macdaddy A HUGE Disappointment
My words echo all the other reviews.... incredibly lousy directions that make assembly difficult and if followed as written result in a wobbly table if you want it at the promised 31" height. Like others, I made modifications that yielded a stable table, but one that is shorter than desired. If you are not patient and/or easily frustrated by directions, and not given to making modifications and "settling" for something other than what you envisioned, I'd say: "Keep Looking."

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Franklin Beware of this table.
The best feature of this table is its price, and you get what you pay for. Assembly takes longer then you’d expect, and the directions could be clearer, especially for mounting the 6-inch extensions to bring the table to its full height. If the intent is to mount the extensions directly on top of the longer base legs, I’d advise against that, for reasons of stability. I mounted the bottom of the extensions INSIDE the longer legs, so they could be better secured with the bolts provided, thus sacrificing a few inches in height. The directions for mounting the side peg boards are to use the existing holes, but you’ll have to drill some of your own. The casters for rolling table to a different location are barely adequate because they require that the table be considerably tilted. When it’s all said and done, I guess it serves its purpose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anna It does what I need it to do
I wanted something that i could use for my chop saw. It works well. It wasn"t hard to put together. It has extra storage that I'm using for the blades so I've stopped my normal search for the blades every thime I need to change them.
I guess it looks ok. Haven"t really thought about it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chad Trash. Keep looking.
As other users have stated, the instructions are useless, although it's not a complicated table so you can pretty much build it by looking at the picture.
The problem lies in overall quality. I ordered 3 of these units. Each box contained different combinations of parts. One unit didn't contain all of the screws and nuts. One unit had an extra leg. One unit was missing a cross member.
The metal pieces are painted in crinkle paint which is a great finish for the garage or workshop, but in this case what didn't flake off during shipping quickly disappeared during assembly.
The shelves are not "pre-drilled" as the instructions state and they are not square. Two of three units were shipped with a lower shelf that was cut too small for the opening.
Once together the unit is surprisingly sturdy, but the quality issues are simply unacceptable. Even though these tables are inexpensive, they are overpriced for what they are.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by notavail Quality low
Would have preferred a more sturdy design. Table top had big chips in it. I would rather pay more to gain better quality. Had to add my own screws to secure bottom shelf it falls through frame. I needed a specific height and it met this need so that is why I purchased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Butch This product was exactly what I needed.
There were three small problems I noticed during construction: 1) The assembly instructions were written only, no pictures/drawings were included, which made assembly more time consuming than it should have been. 2) The bottom shelf was not quite large enough to allow screwing it onto it's support. The holes in the support were just outside the edges of the board. 3) According to the written instructions, the two side peg boards were supposed to have four holes for screwing them to the sides, they did not. The only holes in them were all the small peg holes, which were way too small for the nuts & bolts provided. This required some drilling on my part to attach them. Also, I replaced the thin, too small, shelf with with a plywood shelf, and also cut one to make a top shelf where the support is, but no shelf was provided. All-in-all, a good table for mounting wood working equipment like a mitter saw and router, to mention just two. cml

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by engineerray Poor instructions, but very useful table.
Poor instructions led to a few missteps. When done the table is quite serviceable, easy to move as needed. It serves as a table for my saw. I was able to make the table/saw the exact height of my workbench to hold long pieces of wood.
