So I read all of the comments before I bought this and could not be more pleased. It is a high quality, solid wood product at an extremely inexpensive price for what it is. If you want to go out and pay $2,500 for a bed frame, please do so and don't complain about this one. It is solid wood (soft to medium hardness) made in Indonesia. It is not laminate, not stained, but treated with some sort of coloring process. It looks great but you can scratch or dent it if not careful. I scratched/dented a very small piece while assembling and covered up with a marker. Impossible to see. The only tricky part of assembly is getting all of the slats onto the frame before tightening everything up since they are all connected with fiberglass tape. Once in place, everything is lined up and easy to secure with hex bolts and screws. All of the center legs are sturdy and supportive. They are able to be leveled if you are on an uneven surface. The only way that I can see that they would come loose is if they were put on incorrectly. My only complaint about assembly is that only some of the slats are secured to the frame so some creaking can occur. It is easy to drill pilot holes and secure them with wood screws or do like I did and just add a dab of glue at those spots and problem solved. I've recently bought the matching nightstands and they have a similar good quality and no assembly is required.
