Solid wood with marble top (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

firm

Here is my best explanation:

'solid' is the definition.

('firm' can be a synonym of 'solid')

'wood with marble top' is the subsidiary indication.

'wood' becomes 'fir' (fir is a kind of wood).

'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'top' suggests taking the first letters.

The initial letter of 'marble' is 'm'.

'fir'+'m'='firm'

(Other definitions for firm that I've seen before include "Steady kind of business", "Unyielding; company", "Stable; business", "Company; unyielding", "Well-established - business", "Resolute kind of business", "Steady commercial organisation?", "Business company", "Solid; secure" and "Steadfast".)
