I received the stand for my birthday but there were a few issues with assembly. First and the biggest issue is that not all of the pre-drilled holes line up with each other or the steel brackets so I had to enlarge some holes and drill some new ones. Took about 3 hours by myself to put together but would have been impossible without a drill and hammer. In the end it looks great but probably not as strong as it would be otherwise, One of the bolts tops broke off while tightening it. I have not called customer service yet but I will find out soon how hard it will be to get some replacement parts. The last issue is more my fault for not confirming but I bought a 13 ft hammock thinking that was a standard size but a 12 ft is the longest size for this stand. The description should tell us that. So far three orders from overstock and two disappointments. I hoped for better quality products.
got this beautiful hammock last summer, looks lovely, comfortable the 1st season. I covered it through winter & despite that, the wood on the outer edges is buckling, and the boards are separating, I am afraid I will need to try to reinforce in order to use safely this year. the hammock itself is smooth wood the first year, but is now splintering and I cannot sit or lay in it without getting stuck. It is sturdy & still looks good from a distance, but I would have expected much more for the price & the information when I purchased this was that it was durable for weather, but it has not held up. I am now needing to either get another hammock cloth or cover this one in order to be more comfortable. I suppose it is to be expected that the hammock will stretch and it now needs to be tighter so I don't sit on the frame every time I try to get in or out. Am afraid I will soon need a new stand, Thought I was getting a better quality item
I just put the hammock stand together, and was disappointed that not all of the pre-drilled wholes match up. Have a drill on hand or you won't be able to put the brackets on to secure the legs. Also, I noticed that the box says it's eucalyptus wood, but the Overstock.com site says it's "100-percent high-grade Asia Pacific mahogany". Not exactly sure what the difference is, but I would think Mahogany would have a better color and grain. I would prefer to get what I thought I had ordered. It would also be nice if they told you what size hammock to purchase for this stand as some are too large. Overall it seems like a sturdy stand, it looks nice and I would recommend it.
STAY AWAY! This is a beautiful hammock stand. Sadly it is COMPLETE JUNK. Described as solid hardwood, it is made of many thin laminated layers. The varnish failed within a single season allowing moisture to separate the laminatedd layers leaving nothing but a pile of garbage. Of course you're free to return it if yours happens to fail within 30 days. Even mine did a little better than that. Total rip off.
Sadly this $XXX piece of furniture is now in the garbage & it's less than 18 months old. The wood split & the only use is for firewood. So not only was the $XXX a waste, so was the money spent on the hammock itself that this wood stand does not come with. Been a customer of Overstock for over 10 yrs & this is the 1st time I'm disappointed with an item sold on your website. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM.
Well I like the hammock, but the wood is already splitting apart after only one year of being in the sum. SAD!!!! AND it fadded so I need to paint it or something. I will use it till it wont hold anymore. Girls get a guy to put it together!!!!

Do not puchase this hammock stand! I purchased mine just under two years ago and it broke. My boyfriend was sitting on it and it snapped! He hurt his back because he landed on the main beam and it almost crushed my two little dogs. I contacted the manufacturer and they said it was out of the one year warranty so they wouldn't do anything for me. I even stored it in the garage in the winter months.
Stay away from this stand!
