    White Glove Delivery:
    To ensure that each table arrives in perfect shape, they are shipped via Fedex Residential Freight. The table, which comes packed in two boxes, will be delivered to your door on a pallet. This means that NO HUMAN HANDS or CONVEYOR BELT will ever touch your table during transport! This will virtually eliminating any possibility of it being damaged in transit. This is an extremely expensive service, costing approximately 4x as much as Fedex Home delivery. But it is provided at NO COST to US (Contiguous 48 States) Customers.

    1. Camaratta Signature Championship Table
      This table is an instant classic! I ordered one for my wife and I to play on and was blown away by the craftsmanship of the table and how quickly we received it even though it had to ship on a pallet. Very easy assembly can be completed in no time.

    2. Wonderful table at a bargain price
      This particular table is an amazing bargain! Leather can be dyed a different color, but it looks great in white. The pictures don't do it justice. Anyway, the table needs to be assembled and it is a testament to it's quality that it went together without a hitch with the provided tools. Actually I cheated a bit and used my own power screw driver to speed things up. The whole job took less than an hour. The table makes a statement. It is big, sturdy, and accommodates other boards besides the one that comes with it. The drawers on both sides are felt lined and are big enough to store even large chess sets. I am spending 2-3 hours a day at it learning the game and have no regrets. This is a serious table of heirloom quality. One last comment on the color: If you really don't like the white leather version, this table in brown at the higher price is still a bargain. I looked at a lot of tables and this table is the best one I have found at any price.
