To Overstock.com, My wife and I both love our "Whitte Oak Island" and we now eat most of our meals at it, i.e., rather than in our Dining Room. Am Not sure if I had any more trouble putting it together than most, as it took me about 17 hours straight (from 9 a.m. untill 2 a.m.). That time does include my stopping to eat two meals (the meals were the only true pauses in that time). I loved the fact that the parts for the unit included extra bolts, nuts, etc., twice they came in handy when I had misplaced others. Also the diagrams were really easy to follow . . . Thank You, J** S********* PS: Your delivery system is great too . . .
