These tables arrived yesterday and we assembled today. Like other reviewers mentioned, it took a while to assemble, but they are not coming apart anytime soon. The construction is solid and the instructions were very clear and easy to read. The table is made from parawood, which is a very heavy and hard wood. We have a kitchen table which we have had for about six years made of the same wood and it is as solid as when I first put that together and it is used heavily. Since side tables are considered light duty, these may very well last for several decades. The only downside is the drawers. The drawer sides and backs are made from chipboard/particle board, so they are likely the weakest part of the furniture. But again, this is light duty, so this is a small thing. Overall a great value and exactly what we were looking for.
