Rated 2 out of 5 by DaveHa Looks great, but is very wobbly...
Pros: Looks great just sitting there, as it does in the picture. I generously give it 2 stars, for looking good.
-- Poor instructions to assemble. Improving the diagrams/instructions would seem to be a very small cost; so for the cost of this item, it might be worth it.
-- The pre-drilled holes were way too small for me to screw the screws in with a screwdriver. I eventually tried to drill them in, but ended up with the same poor results. I am going to have to clamp and glue the parts together to attempt a sturdy table -- not even sure this will work. Of course, I do not have either a clamp or glue for this, so I am perturbed to say the least.
-- The result is a wobbly table.
Conclusion: I will not buy anymore "assembly required" from LLBean, no matter how simple it seems. (I had plans to buy more end tables, two more night stands and a bed frame -- Bean lost a lot of business there.) I am not very handy, but I can certainly use a screwdriver properly. Pretty disappointed. (I should say that I have been pleased with all other Bean purchases over the years.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by WoodsRiverWriter Perfect Addition to Mission Collection
I've purchased 3 other pieces of furniture in this line and could not be happier with the quality and appearance. The two other tables are in the Natural Brown color, while my chair is Dark Mission (because Natural wasn't available several years ago). I wanted this table to go beside the chair and was worried the colors would clash, but they blend nicely. It took my husband and me one hour to put together. The instructions are easy to follow, quality is excellent, and I would definitely purchase again. Being made in the USA was a big determining factor for me. It's a sturdy, well-made table.

This table looks every bit as good assembled as it does in the catalog photos. The directions for assembly are very clear. The pieces fit well and went together easily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Scojo Several tries to get it right...
First table received had two damaged side panels. Replacement table had one damaged side panel. Eventually received a single replacement panel to complete assembly. Customer service to correct problem was great and up to Bean standards. Final product met expectations but getting there was the challenge.

I bought 2 of these end tables and they are perfect, I love the design, the drawers and the size. They completely met my expectations! They were easy to put together and are very good quality.

Very attractive and extremely functional as a sofa end table. Assembly required, but not all the screw holes were lined up exactly, making it more difficult. Should have option of delivery pre-assembled.

We bought this table for our camp and are delighted with it in every way. Nicely crafted and finished. Very solid construction. We chose the lightest finish and are happy with its warm honey color - compliments our natural pine very well. Must be assembled, but instructions are clear and easy to follow. Had purchased another piece from this line years ago for our ski condo. so knew what to expect. Good quality item for the price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by IdahoBob An OK Table but not Great
Just finished assembly with three more Mission pieces to go. I need a break to cool down. The finish is so-so, the pilot holes for sheet metal screws are undersized, and the fit is nothing to brag about. I was also short one 5/8" screw but I probably have something that will work in the garage. There some pieces that look like they should be glued that are not and there's a bright spot by the dark stain where things have moved. We couldn't find a set of tables this size anywhere else or they might all be going back (the other three with the boxes unopened).
