The hole in the base was too small for the post to fit into. Luckily my husband could take it to work to the machine shop and mill it. He had to shave a lot off of the diameter. We made it work, but very few could with just household tools. Otherwise it is a good chair.
The good- contained all parts, easy enough to assemble without reading the instructions if you are logically inclined, and cost is quite reasonable. The Bad - the milling at the manufacturer is average. There were a few spots on each chair that had been "fixed" using wood putty due to erroneous drillings or cuts. All in all - good, inexpensive Adirondack chairs. I highly recommend painting to cover up milling errors and making them weather resistant since they aren't made out of hardwoods.
