The order shipped immediately and was delivered in just a few days. Having the tracking number e-mailed to me was very useful. All of the parts came wrapped in protective materials and arrived without damage. This table is very sturdy and well built. The finish on the wood is flawless. The metal frame did not fit together perfectly but well enough that it looks good with no noticeable flaws. The assembly instructions are easy to follow and it took about 30 minutes to assemble the table. It is helpful to have someone hold the wood shelves in place while you install the screws which hold the shelves to the metal frame. I am very pleased with the quality and the overall experience of purchasing this table. Great value and great looking table for the price!
