Comments about Product: I bought this product to fulfill a need. when it arrived, it was nicely packed in a sturdy box with foam and tape. Unpacking was a breeze and there were no scratched parts.
The parts are well made and assembled; the wood was properly milled, sanded and stained. All it needed was to be assembled.
Upon unpacking the parts, there was a strong, oily smell. Upon assembling the unit, most of the holes for the cam screws were too tight, requiring each to be widened. I used an electric screwdriver to make it easier to start each screw.
The manufacturer skimped on the cam locks. Where one was on a piece, it would have been better to install two. In moving the product during assembly, the cam locks often disengaged and a part would go clattering to the floor. Better to assemble on a table or bench.
After product was assembled, it seemed fragile in its movement. I decided to drill holes and add inch and a half screws to insure that the piece wouldn't fall apart if someone sat on it. I also added decorative caps that matched the color of the wood. In the future, I'll buy an assembled piece or make it, myself.
