I have a log bed and several other log furniture products. Normally these have lots of cracks and splits in the wood which is normal. This product had only a few of these. The finish was nicer then I expected and was polished nicely. This futon is really big. Much larger then I expected. It looks great and we are mostly happy with the purchase. It came in three boxes each weighing about 50 pounds. Now for the bad stuff. The box with the frame had obviously ripped open and was retaped shut. All the parts inside were not in the original pakges and were loose inside. There was no way to tell we even received every thing. I ignored all this and got lucky that everything was still there. One part of the frame was bent and I had to bend it back. There are only about 7 steps to putting this together. One step, because the screws would not go in when the holes were aligned correctly, took 4 hours. I've put lots of IKEA and other furniture together. This was not fun putting this together. I'am not sure about the long term quality of the frame. Hard to tell. It looks goods, seems nice and we are happy with the purchase.
