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.
I bought two of these cabinets from Sam′s Club and am very pleased with the quality, fit and finish of these cabinets. All of the pieces are packed very well minimizing shipping damage. Allow about two hours for assembly per cabinet from the time you open the box until you are admiring your handiwork. Once you open the box unpack all the components at once and stack similar parts together around your garage (right door, left door, right side, left side, back, shelves, top and bottom)
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.
