I have been putting together countless pieces of furniture over the last 3 weeks and this was by far the easiest to assemble. VERY clear directions & an easy-to-follow process. I did it all by myself in about 30-40 minutes...it would be easier with another set of hands when it's time to attach the door, but I used a power drill to partially screw in most of the screws and it was fine. The pieces are all very nice quality - great weight, finished on all sides. My only "problem" was that the door on one table (I ordered 2 tables) arrived damaged. I assembled everything but the door & called the 1-800 number listed in the directions and they immediately shipped a replacement piece. I was on hold for about 10 minutes but the actual process of requesting a new piece took 2 minutes. Very efficient.
