Compass Side Table is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even nicer than pictured The compass table fits in perfectly with our decor and is even nicer than the catalog picture. Great quality, eye-catching and a conversation piece. Have received many compliments on it, and both my husband and I are very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique I ordered this for my husband. We are building a new house and he was very firm it had to line up north south instead of turning it to face an interesting view. Anyway this table that is a working compass was a hit with him. I read some reviews about being tipsy on a carpet ours will be on a tile floor so no problem with that. I can see how on a carpet with the tables small feet it could be a little unstable and the compass may not point correctly. Other comments were the compass top is very small true it's 13.5' in diameter, but it's just right to hold a cocktail next to an arm chair. We love it and it will work well in our new contemporary/industrial/steampunk house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous functional conversation piece I looked at this for months as a piece of décor that would appeal to my husband but now that we have had it in for a few weeks and hosted a couple of events I think it appeals to the adventurer in everyone! We have received many compliments on it after people have taken notice of the very unique item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this table for my grandson's room. I wanted something unique and different. This certainly fit the bill. I looked at other compass tables, but they just didn't have the character this table has. Am very pleased with this table and my grandson loves it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met all my expectations. This was everything I expected it to be! The compass works beautifully (Note: You do have to turn a knob on the side to release the compass needle so it works properly) The wood is lovely. It's a wonderful accent piece. I knew the size when I bought it but I do wish it were larger. The face of the compass is so lovely you don't want to hide it with things on top of it. The legs are nice that they can be adjusted for length. It's truly a lovely unique piece. I am a sailor so obviously it speaks to me. Great for a small spot in a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This table is very beautiful. The compass does work, I first thought it was broken since it wouldn't move but then realised it was tightened down from the nob on the side of the table. The only problem that this table has is the tightening of the actual compass table. You don't want to touch it as much since it can't be tightly secured. I don't have any problems with the tightening of the legs as I have seen the other reviews. Overall, I am satisfied with what I got even though I think they should use a better tool for the top compass table so it doesn't move to the side, that way it doesn't throw off the equilibrium of the compass pointing to North.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, tighten the legs! We purchased the aged driftwood oak finish and it looks great. It was very securely packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Good value for the price. My husband is a stickler when assembling and tightening things, but a week after assembly, we sat a (new) pottery lamp on the table to keep it out of the way while moving furniture. 24 hours later - crash! One leg nut loosened just enough to tip the table over and destroy the lamp (the table survived without a mark). The air was very dry and we suspect the table may have been shipped from a moister clime, causing the wood to shrink slightly. So it's a great table, but check those leg extensions a bit after assembly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting Design This little table is so attractive and draws all the attention from guests. I bought it because I wanted to know the direction of North and thought it would make a nice little addition to my room. Makes a great conversation piece and is so attractive. Everyone that has seen it loves it and complements me. They keep talking on about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting and compact side table This is a great side table! It required very little assembly. The working compass top has piqued my guests' interest. It is compact, and the adjustable height makes it a good fit for several locations in my living room. I ordered the Aged Driftwood Oak and Silver. It is very attractive. The only slight disappointment was the red accent on the moveable hand on the dial. It looks almost like it was colored using a red sharpie. It doesn't distract from the overall appearance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet table We're enjoying the little compass side table. It's kind of a conversation piece in that the compass actually works. We'd give it a 5-star rating if it were a tiny bit sturdier. Overall, we like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique Table Love the unique look of this table. It is a conversation piece. The size is perfect. The compass does not seem to work on my table but that's ok as I got it at a substantial discount at the Ballard Outlet. It is still cool to look at. I wish the legs were more sturdy. They are adjustable and can be tightened, which I have done, but I think a better brace to lock the legs in place is warranted. I would definitely check them to make sure they are tight before allowing someone to place a drink or plate on top of it. Hence four stars instead of five. Still I love the table and happy that I purchased it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE the nautical design. It fits in perfect with our decor. Perfect size for drink and snack next to our sofa. The only suggestion would be the. Legs to be more stable in adjusting and also once set, the brace below it, locked in place better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from attractive product--lousy instructions. Like looks of this table but working compass has most appeal. No helpful instructions included how to activate the compass. Still haven't figured out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good little side table Good small accent table, especially for the price, that is a working compass (nautical theme), has a very nice finish, adjustable height, and glass top. Only con, due to only 3 legs... it is a little tipsy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Conversation Piece! Everyone that comes into our office comments on how unique this table is. It's the perfect size for an accent table! We have ours between two club chairs and it is beautiful. Not the most sturdy table but it works great for drinks or small items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great accessory and centerpiece for comments from guests. Exceptional quality in the metalwork although stud wood staining and finish could have used a little more attention. Quite the conversation piece and very practical as a small end table.
