Firstly, this stool is well packed. I was a little concerned that I was going to ruin the finish on the base trying to remove the very tightly taped gauzy protective wrap. Be careful! Assembly was a breeze and the instructions couldn't be more clear. Do heed the words of others and wipe off excess blue grease from base while assembling. I'm very happy with this stool. It's better looking than I though it would be and is just right for sitting at an art table or an easel. I looked for this style stool at this height for some time. Most are designed for counters or bars and cannot go lower than 24 inches. This one works best in the 18-22 inch range, which is exactly what I wanted. Others state that it wobbles when fully extended, so perhaps not ideal as a counter stool.
