This is a really nice table and it is fairly easy to put together, that is only if you have all the screws, nuts and lock washers you need. The packaging is soooooo bad that you will be very, very lucky to get all the hardware you will need to finish the job. Really disliked the fact they stapled the living crap out of the bottom of the table to keep it secure in the lousy packaging! You do get a good value with this table, and it is just the right size for my small dining room. However because of the lousy packaging and the fact UPS doesn't care at all about getting a package to you in ONE piece I am forced to give this table a 3 star rating.
