from Pittsburgh, PA United States
This item is handmade and the wood is very attractive and it is well-constructed. When it arrived, it was packed safely. Unpacking revealed no scratches or other problems, except that it rocked slightly when I put it on the floor--any floor. My solution was to put two small furniture nubs on the legs diagonally to eliminate the rocking. I am guessing that because this is a handmade item featuring authentic teak, it either started off less than perfectly square, or on the long sea voyage to the US, in storage, it had some pressure put on it, pushing it out of square. It really wasn't bad enough to send back, and was easily "fixed" as described. I had a friend visiting, who, when she saw it, decided she wanted to take it home with her. Nope!
