I had to return to leave a review because i'm absolutely thrilled by how this turned out. Delivery was late, and packaging was filled with crummy styrofoam which disintegrates and messes up your floor with tiny bits, but overall the product made it halfway across to world to me in one piece. I was worried because this requires assembly and i have trouble assembling even the simplest Ikea furniture. We had to dig around to look for the instructions, which was also printed on a pretty crummy piece of paper. Everything from then on went great. The tabletop was made of solid pallet-looking wood, and to echo one of the other review -- The finishing is meant to be raw looking. You must be prepared for imperfections that are meant to enhance the "character" of the piece. The corners of the table top have been reinforced with heavy cast metal brackets. All you need to do is to fit the wheels on the axel, and fit the smaller wheels to the other 2 sides of the table. It was easy to drive in the screws with the supplied tools -- You do not need to have power tools or the likes of it. I was especially happy at how easy it was to turn the screws in. The holes were pre-drilled and filled with the metal screw holes. So you are turning the screws into a metal piece in the coffee table. It wasn't like Ikea furniture where you had to struggle to screw the screws into wood itself. Anyway, the entire installation took about 30 minutes, and the end result looked phenomenal. The metal pieces were really solid heavy. So glad i didn't buy the Restoration Hardware piece -- This is just as good at 1/2 the price!
