We bought a similar chair from Walmart that broke when my husband sat down the first time so we were happy that this one is sturdy and built a lot better. I put this together myself and I'm 68 years old. There were definitely some tight pieces but I took a cloth to protect the wood and tapped gently with a hammer. I had rather it be a tight fit than loose. We are enjoying this chair every day.

They are not weather resistant! They are falling apart and we’ve only had them one year. The material is so cheap, there’s no way they are made of solid wood if my homemade bench can outlast these chairs.

I'm so happy with these rockers (purchased 4 for porch). They are easy to assemble - my husband and I used a drill. The color is a nice bright white, which looks great. The quality is very good; especially at a $99 price point. Additionally my husband is very satisfied with the purchase.
The rockers were easy to put together, but I did use a bar clamp before screwing it together.
I also paint mine before putting together and I do have to say they came out great. Paint the white chair with LSU colors and the black chair with Saints colors
I purchased two of these rockers for the front porch of my home. The assembly instructions are clear but I did have some trouble putting them together. If you are not a handy person then you will have some trouble. The chair back and all of the spindles had a build up of excess paint which made it impossible to insert them into their respective holes. After removing the excess paint the assemby went pretty smoothly until the final step where you install the seat screws. The seat screws don't even come close to aligning with the predrilled holes in the seat. I had to drill my own holes to complete the seat attachment. Assembly of the first chair took me about 2 hours. The assembly of the second chair took me about 1 hour.
TIP # 1 - Sanding the excess paint from the spindles by hand takes too long. I just carefully used the wire brush wheel on my bench grinder.... quick and easy!
TIP # 2 - I applied self-adhesive felt strips (1/2" x 34") to the underside of the runners to protect the painted floor of my front porch.... see photo.
Rocking chair has the exact features that I wanted and good seat height.
I gave it a fair rating for quality because both chairs arrived with a nickel sized dent on the left slat in the same place on both chairs. The paint was also chipped on both of those places. Paint is starting to chip off arms. These rockers sit on a covered porch. This is not the quality I expected especially after owning them for 4 weeks.

Very nice chair this was our second purchase, first time was pre assembled, this time was assemble your self, assembly was not the easiest, however, once assembled it’s a very nice rocker at the Home Depot price.
