It is represented as a work/kitchen table and the picture prominently displays it used in a living space. We bought it for the kitchen of our new farm home which was a wrong decision. This is a near primitive table which at its price point should be a show piece for the home instead it is really an overpriced work table for the shop. 1. The picture in the catalog is not representative of what we received. There is wide color variation from pale to a red in the wood which is atypical for maple. 2. The drawers are butt jointed and at this price point they should have been T&G. The construction technique is cheap and wonﾒt last. Looks like the drawers will have to be completely rebuilt properly in our farm wood working shop. 3. The back and floor are 5/8ﾔ plywood not solid as noted in some comments. O.K. construction technique for cheaper furniture but does not display well if placed away from a wall. 4. The top is butcher block maple which appears to have laminated from sub prime wood. 5. The shipping packaging was poor. A ﾼﾔ piece of luan was nailed to a pallet to support the table. During shipping the weight of the table broke through the luan. No damage but it needs at least a ﾽﾔ plywood support. Additional issues with Lehmanﾒs shipping dept. We donﾒt need a high priced work table and will have to correct the drawer and finish problems. Unfortunately we will not be able to match colors, to conform to the photo, without completely rebuilding the piece. It we had known these issues in advance we would not have purchased.

I have had this Amish Crafted Maple Worktable for over three years now. I use it in my kitchen as extra storage and workspace. It is beautiful, sturdy, and incredibly functional. I am very pleased with the purchase.

We just received our maple workbench and kitchen island in time for my Christmas baking! My husband and I couldn't be more thrilled! Both cabinets came fully assembled (my husband was thrilled), and so beautiful from all sides! The workmanship is exceptional! I had looked on line for similar islands for our kitchen, and when I found Lehman's was amazed at the price. We are so happy we purchased both products. They are so beautiful, and make my kitchen look fabulous! The customer service, and products are so impressive. I would highly recommend these cabinets! The storage space is amazing! They are so sturdy, and beautifully built!

My mother purchased this several years ago for her home in Maine and now I am going to buy one, once my kitchen renovations are completed. It is one of the finest pieces of workmanship I have ever seen. The storage space is great and it's always the go-to area for food preparation and serving, for the whole family. We love it!

I recently purchased the maple work table for a craft/quilt/storage unit for my craft corner. I was completely taken aback at the quality put into this piece of furniture. It is not only functional, but beautiful, and crafted in a way which will last for several generations. The top is solid butcher block, even the back is a solid piece of maple! It truly is so beautiful, it could be in my kitchen as an island work area. I felt like the price was reasonable for such an a quality piece of furniture. It adds such character to my home. Thank You! Sandy from Colorado ~ I cut an pasted this from a personal email I got 3/16/2011
