SF Good Questions: Quality of the Gus Modern Chunk Dining Table?

Dear AT:SF, I'm graduating from college and moving across the state to a new city. I don't have much furniture, but I've had my eye on the Gus* Modern Chunk dining table for a while. I was wondering if anyone out there can attest to the quality of this table...

...I've had IKEA particleboard furniture all through college and I am now looking for furniture that will last me more than a few years. I know some pieces from stores like Crate and Barrel or Pottery Barn may cost more, but are still made of the same MDF or particleboard. I'm hoping to avoid this. So, how is this table? Also, are there any similar tables out there that may be made of real wood? Or should I simply be trying to get over my fear of particleboard furniture? Thanks,

-Christa

Christa,
We'd always choose wood over particleboard or MDF.

There are some comments here about Gus Modern, but we don't know about the quality of the Chunk. It does remind us of Crate and Barrel's Big Sur Dining Table, which is also made of solid oak.

Anyone?
