Difficult to Assemble
 from Colorado Springs, CO,  Oct 4, 2011

As a former poster said, the holes don't line up. I didn't know what that meant then. Now I do. On the console that I received, if you screwed the cam blots in until they were tight as I usually do, they were too short. They did not extend into the precut holes far enough for the cam nut grab and dhold the bolt. After breaking several cam nuts trying to force them on, I went to the hardware store to try to buy some longer cam bolts, but could not find any. Then I called the company to send me some more cam nuts to replace the ones that I had broken. Then I backed the cam bolts out enough by unscrewing them about 1/8th of an inch so they were long enough for the cam nut to attach. It seems sturdy enough now. The assembly instructions are good, but there are 17 steps and a lot of bolts and screws to put ind. Took me about 20 to 25 hours of actual assembly time. Later found a comparable piece at a nearby furniture store for about the same price already assembled. Would not do this again.
