This is a solid oak table with stainless steel legs. It extends to site from 8 to 10 people with the legs well in from the edge to allow ease in and out and keep the legs out of the way of chair position. The gentle curve on the side adds a nice designer touch. Its extends by a draw-leaf mechanism which is very easy to open and close. The surface of this table is heat and stain resistant and all you have to do to keep it clean is wipe it with a damp cloth. This is a great table for big family gatherings.
