When I ordered this stand I was slightly afraid as there were no present reviews so I was not sure what to expect. I was also slightly cautious as the price for this stand on Overstock.com was a fair bit cheaper then on other sites (was wondering why :) ) I decided to risk it and ordered it. While it was being shipping I came back online and noticed someone had left a review... so I read it and became slightly more worried. In the review it mentioned several of the holes did not line up and it would have been impossible for put together without a drill.We got ours and I started to put it together, and found no complications at all. All the holes lined up perfectly... the height worked well for our hammock and the people in it. It looks amazing and it is rather sturdy. I was very please. The only reason I don't rate perfect stars for the product is because something has to really WOW me for such a rating... but this product has done really well and would highly recommend.. decorative and useful.
