Our rustic cedar furniture normally comes unassembled with the exception of most dressers and nightstands which are assembled. The furniture arrives boxed as 4 main pieces. For example, a CEDAR LOOKS chair will come with a seat and back panels, along with two sides. Assembly requires a hammer (the kit includes non-rusting nails) or drill to drive in your own deck screws and the glue included in the kit. Normal assembly takes only a few minutes. You align the tenons with the pre-drilled holes (mortise) in the side sections, apply glue. Tap sections together and nail or screw for final assembly...Your chair is ready to apply a finish or leave natural.
