This Buffet was one of many I looked at online as well as in the local shops. I finally decided on it with the matching dining table. The buffet was delivered in two (2) boxes and because of the holiday(memorial day) it took a while to get here. It was extremely heavy. We assembled it but it does require 2 people to assemble & when you're putting the glass doors on the are difficult. You have to bring the doors closer in the center of the buffet so they fit properly and don't tilt or drag when your opening & closing them. It is a great buy and very sterdy with real wood not the compressed stuff. I would recommend this product again & again.
