The set arrived well packed and undamaged, with no hardware missing. It was packaged in one very heavy box. The UPS guys were nice enough to put the box inside for me, as I was there to meet them. Assembly wasn't too difficult, even for a single person; it helped to have a large, empty carpeted area to set all the pieces out (I guess it's fortunate that I still don't have a dining room table). I took my time, because the instructions are better than many I've seen, but still could be confusing if you try to rush. I used a power drill with a long phillips head bit to attach the seat, and it was easy. I can't imagine trying to get those wood screws into the seat with a regular screwdriver. The end result feels like a solid piece of furniture. The chairs are larger than I expected and comfortable. They are a comfortable height, and don't feel at all rickety. The table is heavy. My one caveat is that the dark finish of the piece left marks on my counter and floor that were difficult to remove, so watch out for scraping the set against anything light colored. I've only used it once, but I love the fact that I can now sit high enough to look out my breakfast room windows.
