YOU should have had a look at the table before you bought it....
as for welding shops who cares if they also do OFF-ROAD VEHICLE MODIFICATION???? Welding is welding...maybe you should have requested a table welding shop
The table in the store WAS level. I paid for a table that was to be shipped as they did not have extras in stock. The table that came off of the transport truck, that was NOT packaged for protection and was shipped from the mainland, was NOT. If only I could have been at the warehouse, in Lord knows where, to just see that the table I had bought wasn't level. I would have never let it ship before racing back to Victoria to accept the delivery. What on earth was I thinking not making the trip to the shipping location? Furniture never gets delivered - how absurd of me?
As for the welding shop, we were told by the store that it would be SENT FOR REPAIR. Why would we assume that they would default to the nearest ARC Welder available to fix an intricate table? A furniture store says they are going to return their product for repair, you assume it will be going back to the manufacturer. If I had a defective TV that I bought at BestBuy, I wouldn't assume they'd send it off to Chevrolet for repair.
You either work for Bois and Cuir or you're daft enough to shop there/support them after learning of this debacle. As for an update - the owner of Bois & Cuir continues to avoid replying to us. He apparently owns another furniture store in the Greater Victoria area.
