Just received this and don't have it all put together yet. But did want to share that the usable table top length is about 31.5 inches. The 50 inch length in the specifications does include the drying rack storage and bin. I'm not sure that this will be large enough for my 3 and 4 year old girls to both work at this table. Currently they use our dining room table and I was hoping for something large enough that they would want to use this instead. If we had more time, my husband would make a table himself but since we don't, we lean towards keeping this one. It does have a nice finish though and quality seems ok so far. I'll post again once I know more on how it actually worked out for us. One Step Ahead has a nicer one, larger length and nicer storage option and has a pull out drying rack but is more $$ and they are sold out until after Christmas.
