This is very sturdy and functional. I however did not realize it would have to be put together so much and it was a gift for someone. I didn't open the main box and just wrapped it as it came. I was a bit embarrassed that it had so much work attached to it. Also, the box came printed on the label what it had in it and it was a gift. Those label should never say what the contents are. I think once it is put together it will be fine.
