I am a 73-year-old woman and settled myself down with the photos and the screwdriver to put this together. I was able to complete the project with no complications. For someone that is not used to this tinker-toy furniture I would say that the directions could somehow be a little clearer with words to assist but then for someone younger or more experienced it would be a piece of cake so to speak. Perhaps some common sense had something to do with it as well. I love the size, the color and its possibilities. It is sturdy and It really works for me.
Purchased this cart as part of a recently renovated kitchen dinning room. Our rooms are a cross between modern/traditional. Wanted an accent table in front of a window that was not too wide, but wanted to match the industrial/modern look. Since the wheels lock, I can use this as an accent table, drink cart, storage and party supplies storage area. I put it together without tools with a little help from my husband because it was a little too heavy for me. Like the look and can move it around easy enough for parties and to clean underneath. Practical and sleek.
I'd recommend only for my shorter friends.
Unfortunately I did not measure out the height that is noted. I wanted a desk I could stand at but was more focused on ease of the lift so I could easily change positions. The hydrallic mechanism works well and easily. The assembly was not difficult. The quality is good....but it is not high enough for me to stand so what's the point? If I put it all the way up without any additions I am bent over to use:-( Checking references--measure from your elbow to the floor to how high it should raise. For me at 5' 8" it needs to be 40" high to be properly positioned. Need to send back. Oh well-keep looking.
As usual the service and selection of O,Co is great. Product was shipped very quickly and received in good condition. The cart is all plastic with the exception of the shaft's of the rolling casters. Assembly is easy and configuration can be with a tall area between the lower and middle shelf or a short area between those two. When you get all of the corner uprights the way you want them press down firmly on each corner to seat the uprights in the recesses of the shelves. The cart is light and moves easily but holds quite a bit of office equipment because of it's sturdy construction. Esthetically it has a pleasing color combination of light and darker gray. Some reviewers complained of the price point. Where I am I was not able to find anything comparable at any price.
