Stable and suitable but of course could. Use a little tightening up. All of the movements work. The back is tricky and the screw only goes up to 36. It is pretty work on the last few threads so it probably went up to around 33"-34" originally.
I think it's oak. No old repairs as far as I can see. Steel caster wheels in pretty good shape. We at Galaxyartifacts pride ourselves on our prices, quality and value and we apologize in advance for this inconvenience.I try to describe and take a lot of pics. Make sure you really want the item you are purchasing.
