Compass Side Table 3.9 5 87 87
Love it Looks just like picture and easy to put together. Everyone who has seen loves it. April 26, 2013
Unique and just the right size. I purchased this as a small side table for my husband's library area. It fits the space neatly and adds a unique touch. Just like any good outfit- start with classic, modestly priced pieces and then add accessories that make it elegant and the entire ensemble gets noticed. April 6, 2013
Great conversation piece. Not sure yet if it is too small to use as a table between two casual chairs, but a sure conversation starter. Like it! April 3, 2013
Whimsical touch We use this piece as a sort of wine table between chairs and it surely is a conversation piece. Just be careful to tighten the needle down if you are moving it to a different spot. March 15, 2013
Great piece. Item is lovely and unique. Ballard needs to address quality control since we had to have a second table shipped for a problem with the face of compass that should have been caught before it shipped. On the upside, phone reps were accommodating, knowledgeable and personable. Issue was handled swiftly and the new item arrived within two days. March 4, 2013
Awesome conversation piece I was looking at this for the longest time and finally decided to get it. So glad I did. I got the Maple colored one which is very rich looking. When I pulled it out of the box the compass didn't work, but it was an easy fix. What happens is that the compass needle pivots on a very small pin. There is a knob on the side of the table that you tighten to prevent the compass needle from spinning and getting damaged (during situations such as shipping or moving). Unfortunately, it doesn't work if they jostle the table around too much in shipping. So the compass needle moves a bit off center from the pin and won't spin. All you have to do is get a small flat head screwdriver and take the top piece off. Pick up the compass needle and put it right back on the pin and it will start spinning freely. Takes less than 5 minutes and all you need is a screwdriver. March 1, 2013
Beautiful Table - Go off smaller pic I want to clarify that the compass on this table does indeed work. Some previous reviews noted that it did not. Also, the most accurate image of this table is the one that's available when you click on the "Aged Driftwood" option. You see the silvery top. February 21, 2013
My husband loved it! I bought this as a gift for my husband because he likes compasses, and we needed a side table in a sitting area. He loved it and has mentioned how he's enjoying it multiple times. The 4 star (rather than 5) is because it's not quite as sturdy as I expected and leveling the table by adjusting the legs is a little tedious. But it is serving the purpose I bought it for, and he does love it, so it was worth it! I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys maps, compasses, nautical style. February 10, 2013
Compass side table The table was a Christmas gift for my husband and not only was he surprised, he loved it! It is exactly how it was pictured online and fits our contemporary "beachy" decor...without being cheesy. We absolutely love it and have always been more then satisfied with things we have purchased from Ballard. Thank you. January 20, 2013
Great on looks, poor on quality The compass table is beautiful, but not very well made. When we unpacked it, the pivoting needle was broken. We had the same problem with the hands on a Ballard wall clock. We returned the clock, only to have the new one break almost immediately. Luckily, my husband is handy and repaired the clock. He didn’t even bother to return the table, instead choosing to immediately replace and repair the broken parts. As I said, the table looks great; yet for the price, the product should be pristine on delivery, not in need of repair. In short, I am disappointed in the quality, but love the look. January 10, 2013
Looks great and really works This was a gift for my son, a physicist, who loves scientific artifacts. It looks great and will look even better in his library at home. It was easy to assemble, well packed for shipping as all Ballard items are, and really works. He was thrilled and we couldn't have been happier. December 30, 2012
Excellent! The compass table was exactly what I was looking for my husband, and he loves it ! A great working compass that he fiddled with for a hour. A great conversation piece, that everyone notices on their own. Love this table! December 21, 2012
Genius What a genius idea. The compass truly works. We absolutely love it. May buy another. November 16, 2012
Different in a good way PRO: The table is perfectly sized & goes well with the nautical decor in my husband's study. It's fairly sturdy, and has nice detailing on the legs. Overall, a good value. CON: It was a little tricky to adjust the compass and level the top. A few discolorations on the brass trim of the compass, but nothing deal-breaking. October 5, 2012
Nice! Great little side table for a drink without taking up much space. Purchased for our mountain cabin. Nice quality. September 22, 2012
Wish I had not purchased Very overpriced and flimsy. Definitely just for looks and not actual use. Is a cute nautical themed piece but it should not be priced more than $100. August 17, 2012
Looks great; a nice accent. I read the mixed reviews on this table and that chilled my interest in it for about a month. Then, what the heck, I thought I'd check it out and, if I didn't like it, send it back. I got the walnut one. It looks great, it's definitely not cheaply made and the legs are steady. I am very pleased with it. July 28, 2012
Perfect accent table! I recently bought your compass side table for my husband. He loves it! The table is very well made and was easy to assemble. It looks absolutely beautiful in our sunroom and has been a great conversation piece for everyone that has seen it! July 28, 2012
Such a unique conversation piece. This is a great size occasional table that will easily hold a drink and magazine. It is so unique and works great too! July 28, 2012
Nice little table Good quality, very unique, easy to set up. Like the adjustable option to fit just the right hight next to a chair. Great option when looking for a piece that has a more "masculine" feeling. June 24, 2012
Love this table This compass table looks smashing in my little getaway office. I love it! June 23, 2012
This item sets the theme for a room whether it is an office or living room. This nautical item sets the theme of the room. A side table with lots of flare. I can't wait to find the perfect place to put the compass side table. My husband received the table as a gift and loves it. June 22, 2012
Only for accent But it is only an accent table. Too small to be useful for more than one item, When it finally arrived, the paper that is the face of the compass was bubbly. If it is metal, it is very thin and appears to be printed, rather than etched. It is hard to level and the set screws don't hold very well.The compass is accurate according to my husband, who is retired from the Navy. June 22, 2012
Looks great I love the look of the table but was disappointed that the compass didnt actually work. I could've sent it back but I waited so long for it that the thought of repacking it and waiting for another one was too much. I decided to keep it even though it wasn't working because I wasn't really going to use it as a compass (obviously). But customer service was good and I didn't wait very long on the phone to speak to someone. June 22, 2012
Terrific Small Table Everyone who has seen my new table comments on how nice looking and unusual it is. I like the flexible use of this small ocassional table, moving it around between my living room and family room as needed for entertaining. Oh yes, my husband approves too! It is a piece we will enjoy for a long time to come! June 22, 2012
Pleasantly surprised! We ordered this product in Jan, 2012 and waited and waited as it was on backorder. Reviews had been good prior to our ordering. More recent reviews suggested the quality of the product was poor, so we were nervous! We are glad we hung in there...when the product finally arrived some 5 mos. later, we were pleasantly surprised! It was easy to put together for my husband. He said screws and bolts were not stripped. We ordered the walnut finish and the quality is good. The compass works. We have been very pleased with our choice. June 22, 2012
Better looking than functioning The table is certainly attractive enough, but the compass doesn't actually work that well and the legs aren't supportive enough to trust putting anything on it that would break or spill. My husband may be able to tweak it a bit to make it more sturdy. I guess I didn't expect much more than this based on the other reviews I've read. So if this is what you are expecting, you won't be disappointed. June 22, 2012
The compass does not work. Please advise. The compass table arrived five months after it was ordered and was very happily received. It is a lovely, sturdy table that appears to be well-constructed. However, the compass piece does not work. The accompanying instructions say to loosen the screw on the face of the compass in order to allow the compass to move freely. In an attempt to do exactly this, I found the screw to be already loose, as if it had not been tightened before it was shipped. Please send instructions on how to get inside the face in order to fiddle with the compass and perhaps maneuver it to work. June 22, 2012
Attractive novelty table Small unique table. Assembly was no problem. However it took 4+ months for delivery; because of so many conflicting delivery dates I had whiplash. BD could have had better communication with customer. June 22, 2012
Stunning The tables look great in our lake house. They are functional compasses. Our boys put them together, little tricky getting all the legs to the same height. They are as described, small, weathered wood,glass top. Our problem was receiving them it took several months and 2 delays. June 22, 2012
