Pre-drilled holes too deep on one corner caused damage
on 10 February 2014
The method to assemble is to thread the long rods into the pre-drilled holes, I used finger pressure only. However, one hole was very deep but I did not notice this immediately. Thus the rod was nearly touching the surface of the table. On tightening the opposite bolt, the further rotation pushed the rod through and cracked the surface. This also showed that this is not a very strong item that should not be stood on.
Further, some rod threads were rough, causing the thread to catch and totate the entire rod or make it very difficult to get the bolts to thread on.
Still 3 stars as the item looks nice once assembled.
So my advice to the manufacturer is: Pay attention to detail!
