I just put the hammock stand together, and was disappointed that not all of the pre-drilled wholes match up. Have a drill on hand or you won't be able to put the brackets on to secure the legs. Also, I noticed that the box says it's eucalyptus wood, but the Overstock.com site says it's "100-percent high-grade Asia Pacific mahogany". Not exactly sure what the difference is, but I would think Mahogany would have a better color and grain. I would prefer to get what I thought I had ordered. It would also be nice if they told you what size hammock to purchase for this stand as some are too large. Overall it seems like a sturdy stand, it looks nice and I would recommend it.
