I won't bother repeating what everyone else has said here, but it is very study and very heavy. As such, it's not simple to just fold up and put away. However, it does make for nice quality. I would recommend you save yourself some frustration, and have a Phillips head screwdriver, scissors, and ratchet already to go when assembling the table. The scissors will get you into all the goodies within their well-wrapped protection. The "screwdriver" and "wrench" that are included are unwieldy, and are not the most efficient. I found that having both my screwdriver and the ratchet made some of the nuts and bolts much easier to assemble than it would have been with the simple tools included. The already good price on Overstock and the discount that I received made this a very good buy!
