The instructions were very hard to follow--diagrams only with no written explanation. Two parts looked alike but weren't and there was nothing written to differentiate them. Because of that, I put them together improperly and had to go back several steps to make up for my error.
They mention to keep all connections fairly loose and to only tighten them after the top shelf has been installed. The problem is that the position of the shelf makes it very difficult to reach some of these connections.
What should have taken about two hours to construct took closer to four. It's too bad that the assembly was so frustrating. If you can get past the instructions, this is a solidly built stand which looks very, very nice.
