Although I liked a competitors product better, I selected the craftsman product because the shelves were rated to hold 100 pounds compared to the competitor being rated for 45 pounds. It took me about 2 hours to assemble which required two people at certain points. The instructions were not the easiest to follow; I had to read the first three steps 3 times each before I did anything. But after that, it was easy.
These are heavy gage, assemble smartly, excellent hardware, packaged very well. Wanted to avoid mail order as this type of item will always arrive bashed and damaged. Picked these up at the store where i could see the boxes were not damaged. Wasn’t a typical Chinese experience with crap hardware, make adjustments to fit pieces, dented, damaged. Why? Ah, sticker says proudly made in the USA
Now lay the cardboard from the box on the floor and use this area for assembly which prevents scratching of the panels and also provides some cushion for your knees. When assembling the components using a #2 Phillips screwdriver with a fatter handle than the one that come with the cabinet will allow you to tighten the screws more easily. If you plan on adding the optional swivel wheels order them right away as they seem to often be out of stock. I also ordered some additional shelves which arrived well packaged and damage free. Overall this is one of the best assemble as home cabinets I have ever seen.
The parts fit well together and all the predrilled holes were exactly where they needed to be. I will buy another and would strongly recommend it to anyone who needs a high quality metal cabinet.
