I bought 4 of these chairs and I put them together myself. The first two were easy to put together. The second set of chairs were a little more difficult for some reason - maybe a misaligned hole or something. After some fidgeting and tweaking I eventually got everything lined up correctly. I am so happy with the look of the chairs, plus the price, plus low shipping charge that I don't even care that it took some time to put together those chairs. They look great and they are sturdy.
