My wife bought the set for my birthday in this summer. The wood stand is heavy and very sturdy. The rope hammock arrived first, and we received the wood stand two days later. The box was scratched, but the product is well packed and still is in good condition. It takes us a while to set it up. After we got the wood stand up, the rest is easy, just need to hang the included rope hammock and adjust the tension a few times. It is the best relaxing place for me in the back yard. My wife often like to join me to read and chat. It becomes a romantic place for us!
