Easy to assemble. Minimal scratching or scuffing. Could have been packed a little better, but nothing major.
Everything is nicely finished, right down to the brass tipped feet. Simple setup, easy instructions. They even include a half decent screw driver. For some reason it was a flat head despite all the fittings requiring a Philips head.
Take it easy with the brass screws on the back plate. Make sure it's lined up nice and center before you screw it on, otherwise you are likely to bust out on one of the edges.
Purchased on special, zero regrets. Thanks Mighty Ape!
