I am an aging senior and found the assembly fairly easy, even though my fingers are a bit arthritic, the allen wench helped tremendously, indeed I dont believe any other tool would work.generations
We ended up having a fire the very evening after I took delivery and every eve. since. My teen grandchildren love it and we have found a new place for family gatherings of 3 generations. Fortunately we have a good source for firewood, lol.
