I was so impressed by this item when I took out of box. It was better packed than my expensive Futon. The instructions were very good and I am terrible with instructions. The quality of the individual parts were very impressive for an aquarium stand, considering most stands at the store are pressed sawdust with paper finishes. This is very solid and hard with a permanent paint baked finish. Took me a while, but then I am slow. I actually put most together before tightening screws. Would be helpful to have second person to put roof on. Bought this item specifically because I have cats in the house and wanted something that they could not climb on, get into water, and knock over. I put on the magic buttons on the bottom to give me some ability to move away from wall for easy access. Did not want to screw any holes for casters. Entire back is open, ok if against wall. I may install a lightweight panel to put a back to at least the cabinet part. I also will try to put a shelf on inside of cabinet to increase the storage space. One review I read elsewhere claimed that screw holes for doors were too small and caused cracking. Think they were using the wrong holes. I had no problems at all. Worth every penny. I got shipping free and absolutely no damages. May buy another and set up a second tank.
