The pool table was easy to put together, took me and 1 other person about 1 hour or less to do so. It is as beautiful as the picture. The problem i'm having is that the table won't level out properly. We have tried to level it (under the legs), let it settle 24 hours and level again, but still the balls won't roll right. Seems that the leveling needs to be done under the playing surface. Good time for good old fashioned family fun - definately not for the pool enthusiast or the PRO.
