Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Genius What a genius idea. The compass truly works. We absolutely love it. May buy another. November 16, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice! Great little side table for a drink without taking up much space. Purchased for our mountain cabin. Nice quality. September 22, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this table This compass table looks smashing in my little getaway office. I love it! June 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cool looking, but not solid This table looks great, but I would like it better if it were bigger, and made more solidly. The adjustable legs gives you flexibility, but it's not as sturdy as I would like. The legs are a little thin in relation to the thickness of the table top, and the mechanisms are somewhat flimsy. I'm keeping it because it's unique and goes well in our beach house, but I wish the quality was better. June 22, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Looks different than pictured I ordered this table and waited several months for it to be delivered. I appreciate that Ballards communicated the delays to me and gave me the option to cancel the order. When it arrived, I was disappointed because it really looks different than what I expected. I ordered the light driftwood color. Based on the picture, I thought that the top would be a shiny chrome or polished nickel finish. Instead, it is a dull brushed nickel finish. I also thought that the face of the compass would be white (as it appears in the picture). Instead, it was brushed stainless steel. The compass face had some scratches and warping in it. The compass did not work at all. I unscrewed the part holding the compass in place for travel and it still did not move at all. The table was much smaller and cheaper looking than in the picture. I gave it two stars because I think that the design idea is excellent. However, the table that was delivered looks quite different from the photo so I am returning it. Bummer. May 25, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Looks good, decent table Table has a nice aesthetic that certainly attracts attention. Unfortunately, the screw-in clamps on the legs do not hold firmly enough. Put much weight on the table, and at least one of the legs will likely slip and telescope inwards. Frustrating. April 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clever side table makes a statement This Compass side table makes a great statement in a room. I have it at the end of a small sectional just under a polished nickel sconce and it looks fabulous. Folks old and young are captivated by the compass idea and spend time trying to figure our where their home faces in relation to ours. The legs are sturdy and allow you to raise and lower the height. The large flat face is more than adequate for setting down a glass when company comes. It is a great conversation piece and would fit anywhere in the house.Thanks again for buyers with imagination! April 26, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by in the end happy was what I expected in design...compass didn't work 100%...but gives the look I wanted April 25, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I expected The table is very poor quality. The compass did not work when it arrived, we had to remove the glass to get it to work. The screws in the legs can't be tightened enough to hold the legs up so they fall any time you place something on the table. Now the compass face is buckling under the glass. We thought it was going to be a great addition to our beach house but the quality is so bad we cant use it. It looks so cheap. April 24, 2012
