STAY AWAY! This is a beautiful hammock stand. Sadly it is COMPLETE JUNK. Described as solid hardwood, it is made of many thin laminated layers. The varnish failed within a single season allowing moisture to separate the laminatedd layers leaving nothing but a pile of garbage. Of course you're free to return it if yours happens to fail within 30 days. Even mine did a little better than that. Total rip off.
