I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my father. I put it together just before gifting it and it was pretty easy. I had one hiccup, that's the reason for the 4 star instead of a 5. One on the hinge pieces was wrong but my husband was able to fix it. One side was suppose to have 1 center hole, instead it had 2 holes, one on each side. My husband was able to drill a new hole and it went together easy. I would buy another.
