We bought 6 of these chairs, and the first one took awhile to put together. But once you get it down, the others were a breeze. I had one that was wobbly, but then realized I had reversed the side slats. No big deal though, it came apart quick and I easily changed it and put it back together. I guess the directions could be a bit more descriptive to eliminate this from happening. But the chairs look great and I feel like they are quite sturdy. You really can't beat the price and the quality so far is great(I've had them for about a month).
