The warping does not hurt the function but is noticeable. When you rotate the base the top folds over to allow for easy storage. I found this table in rough condition but everything was solid.Because of the age, I decided to restore it enough to make sure that it was something you could safely use for a long time. I sanded it down and finished it with an early american stain. I sealed everything to make sure that this can be a table that you can use. Local pick-up is always an option.
