The table components were not too heavy to handle and were easy to assemble (I am a 60 year old female). The workmanship is crude in some spots, e.g. the metal finish of the table top was "wavy" on some of the corner areas and the faux copper edging missing in a couple of spots--I chose to view these as more shabby chic qualities than as defects (considering the relatively inexpensive price of the table). I love the glass table top since it enables me to see the underlying diamond bakhtiari rug (another Overstock.com purchase) on which the table rests. I've had the table for several weeks and enjoy its design contribution to my living room.
