I purchased 14 of these racks across the past several months. I was able to piece together seven "good" racks, and returned the remaining defective racks to Sierra Trading Post. Common problems: warped, chipped or cracked slats and chipped or cracked end pieces.

Others have complained that these are poor quality. All of the 6 that I ordered were fine. There were no sharp edges or broken pieces. I did have to look at the picture on the website to see how to orient the slats as there were no instructions. This was a minor issue and the reason that I did not give 5 stars.

Really liked this item --easy assembly, attractive, functional.
Then one day I accidentally leaned my hand on it while searching for something on the floor ;dowels snapped, not fixable in any reasonable way so replaced it with a metal one

I purchased 4, all of which had pieces that were warped, full of huge knots and end pieces that split entirely in half during assembly or were already split in the box. 3 of the four sets where salvageable, the one with the end piece that was split as received was so warped it can not be glued and clamped, so it has to be returned. I have 4 sets in the larger size from another supplier and they are significantly higher grade cedar.
