I assenbled 5 of these for my cellar. After the first rack, two of us assembled the other 4 in less than hour each. It helped to drill starter holes in the back of the rack. We had almost no wood splitting. Mine rest atop a one foot high bench so I don't to get on my knees to fetch a bottle. I also assembled a 3-wide and corner 4-wide.

I bought five of the N'FINITY wine rack components (two 5 column rack units, one solid 4 shelf corner/end unit, one curved 4 column corner rack, and one rectangular bin rack). All of them had problems; many of the problems were common, so I'm combining them all here: first, in summary, if you don't have a power screwdriver *and* a power drill, forget it; there is no way you could put them together with just a manual screwdriver, as the instructions state. Secondly, you need to be fairly strong (to pull misaligned pieces together and to lift and rotate the units during assembly) and also you need to be fairly handy with basic tools. In more detail: 1. It took almost one month to get them – much longer than I expected; 2. The instructions are terrible (you'll need to be good at guessing) and in some cases they're just plain wrong (e.g., they tell you to use the wrong screws, which can crack the wood); 3. One piece arrived broken. I am still waiting to hear back about a replacement; 4. **MOST** of the holes do not align -- you will need to drill (or re-drill) most of the holes (do all of them, to be safe); 5. Several holes are just plain missing; 6. Different length screws were labeled with the *same* letter code, so you will crack or pierce through the wood if you aren't watchful about such errors in the instructions; 7. The curved wood pieces (curved corner rack) don't come anywhere near aligning with the rest of the rack -- be careful here or you will break them during assembly; 8. The stain color doesn't match on some of the pieces. In short, although the design for these racks is good, and the pricing is OK, the quality control of their manufacture (in Malaysia) and their instructions, are both very poor. Are they worth buying? Yes. Why? Because you can't find anything else made of solid mahogany that is cheaper – and a custom cellar will cost you many times more. So I am actually considering buying two more units. If you are capable and careful, you can make these work; albeit with several hours of careful work...

Comments about N'FINITY Wine Rack Kit - 5 Column with Display (Dark Walnut - Solid Mahogany):

This is exactly what I needed for the space I have in my kitchen with 10' ceilings. Assembly is another story. Screws are inadequate to pull in brace pieces. Yes, although careful, wood split in front. Assembly must be improved, otherwise is very functional piece.

Comments about N'FINITY Wine Rack Kit - 5 Column with Display (Dark Walnut - Solid Mahogany):

We were disappointed with flimsiness of pieces. The type of fasteners were extrodinarily difficult to work with (we ended up using other fasteners), several front molding strips broke easily when trying to fit into frame. We should have spent the money for a sturdier wine rack.

Comments about N'FINITY Wine Rack Kit - 5 Column with Display (Natural Finish - Solid Mahogany):

I have bought and assembled two of these racks, one in Sept 2010 and one in Jan 2011. [...]natural finish were fine on both, but the documentation and pre-drilling leave a lot to be desired. The first unit went together easily (in about 3-1/2 hours), but the second one had many mis-located holes, requiring lots of custom drilling. Not terrible, but time consuming -- took me about five hours to assemble and install the second unit. Detailed assembly instructions are not included, but I got a set from Customer Support. The hardware kit was incomplete in the most recent unit, and the included screws do not match the documentation. But the rack looks good, is sturdy and it holds wine.

Comments about N'FINITY Wine Rack Kit - 5 Column with Display (Natural Finish - Solid Mahogany):

[...] The assembly instructions were... well, let's just say it's lucky that I'm good at puzzles. I had to redrill 95% of the predrilled holes. The pieces preassembled do not properly line up, so other parts do not fit properly. It's functional, and the bottles are held well, but I'm happy it's NOT in my living room! Based on function alone, I would have recommended this to a friend[...] and the assembly nightmare, I can't recommend this to anyone I want to keep as a friend. I expected better for the price.

    I read the other comments prior to buying... I have to say I disagree with any comment that said it was hard to assemble. It was very easy to assemble. No problems at all. It is very sturdy and well designed. It looks great. It took me about 2 hours to put together and I was not in a hurry.

    Comments about N'FINITY Wine Rack Kit - 5 Column with Display (Natural Finish - Solid Mahogany):

    The wood was warped and very difficult to put together securely. We had to add nails in many places that nails were not called for in order to assemble securely. We would not have ordered this product if were were aware of the quality. Also, the directions were not satisfactory.

    Comments about N'FINITY Wine Rack Kit - 5 Column with Display (Natural Finish - Solid Mahogany):

    Is actually a good rack - when assembled. It went together only with 2 people, a drill and some glue. The screws were not sizes right for the pre drilled holes and one of the wood bars split. Had to glue it to ensure stable hold. Altogether though it looks great and works well in a practical sense ( yes holding wine bottles...).
