when I tried to attache the arms to the table, the metal thing the screw goes into fell off. The wood seems to soft to be very durable. When I got it I had to glue a few corners that had cracked and one of the dowels cracked and had to be glued together. I still haven't been able to finish putting it together because it's ackward to hold and screw it together without the metal thing that the screw is suppose to go in to tighten it comes undone. Anyway, it's pretty flimsy for as much as it costs.
