This console table is the perfect addtion to a home or office space looking for an industrial look while adding a very organic, natural touch due to the raw, primitive wood slab top. Notice in the photo that displays the entire top, that it is wider and more distressed(darker) on one end and a bit more narrow on the other. The cracks seen are age related and do not impact the strength, stability or function of the console in any way. The base is simply steel pipes welded together, creating the industrial look which remains its own contemporary style statement. This narrow console table is being sold as is, as we do not wish to alter the character or originality of it.
