Any tips on how to find a good quality wood folding table?

I'm looking for a good quality wood folding table. The width has to be 40", and the height has to be within 29"-30". The length can be anywhere from 4-6 feet. I haven't been able to find anything on amazon or just google search shopping results. Anyone know where I can find one? Budget is up to $300 but i'm willing to see anything. Thanks for the help!

What is the purpose of the table? You are describing the conference room tables that Staples sells for around $80 which are photo-laminate tops.

For me if I needed real wood I would make it myself. 1 sheet of decent maple, oak or birch faced plywood for $50 and the rest of the pieces and hardware for another $100. Plenty of plans out there for folding tables.

It's for a dining room for additional seating at gatherings. I don't have the tools to DIY. I couldn't find any wooden conference tables at Staples that were folding and had a 40" width. Could you link to what you're talking about?

Have you looked at the tables Ikea sells? They have lots of real wood table options, some are folding tables, some are extension tables, etc. You could even get one of their desk tops, and choose from the different types of legs they offer, they would be fairly easy to dismantle and store when you're not using it and it would be much sturdier than a folding table.

Separate table tops and legs are about half way down this page.
