The instructions are easy to follow and the wine rack was easily assembled. CAUTIION: The pegs may seem tight, but can work loose through the weight of the wine bottles. I stocked my assembled rack with several bottles and left it undisturbed for two weeks........the sound of glass hitting glass had us rushing into the storage room. Luckily we caught the bottles just in time. Do not assemble without using PLENTY of wood glue. I haven't rebuilt my rack using additional glue yet.
