Received this morning, built and cutting logs within half an hour. Simples. I only cut small logs as we have a small log burner and half the ones we get supplied don't fit - until now. Not sure what was going on with those who had trouble assembling - perhaps my mis-spent youth with Mecanno has finally paid off. It's really not that hard, a bit of trial and error to get it just right. Time will tell how resilient it is but for now I'm pleased with it.
