When I first opened the box and saw all the pieces, I was a little overwhelmed. But once I sorted and identified each piece (they're numbered), everything fell in place. It took some time to assemble (about 2 hours) but was not very difficult if you looked closely at the directions and followed them step by step. My only complaint is that the grooves for one of the drawer bottoms did not line up. This was discovered in the next to the last step. Luckily, I was able to bring it to work where they have a woodshop and one of the guys was able to deepen the groove so the bottome of the drawer would slide in. I eliminated one of the shelves was able to put all my liquor in one side of the cabinet. Put 6 bottles of wine in the rack and glassware and serving ware in the other side. It was perfect for my needs. The height is good as well, perfect for entertaining and setting out snacks or setting up a bar. Can't wait to show it off to my guests this Christmas.
