All in all, it gets the job done in a nice, small footprint. After assembly and oiling, it's very pretty and I'm happy to have it on my patio. Assembly was easy for me to do alone.
I was initially disappointed as I pulled the pieces from the box. Everything was very rough cut; you couldn't rub your hand along any part of it without splinters. There was also white marks on it as if it had been cut from a piece that was written on. These came off easily and didn't affect the piece. I just couldn't help but wonder why they would go to the trouble of a beautiful wood burned logo, and present the rest of it like that.
I took an extra 20 minutes or so to give it a light hand sanding to smooth off splinters along the edges of the horizontal slats mostly. Some areas were rough enough that there was no smoothing of the wood, but just softening of sharp edges.
As for oiling, it really brings the beauty out in the wood as well as protects it, and I recommend it. I don't think the high priced oil that's offered as food grade is necessary. I used a mineral oil/beeswax wood conditioning product, completely food safe, that's available at Lowe's or Home Depot. This doesn't contain UV protection, however.
