mostly assembled, does require tab a to slot a type assembly before you can sit in it. Completely idiot proof instructions(well there are always some who can't follow even the best sequence of illustrated instructions, if that is you, get someone else to do this 10 minute job so they can have a good...

Assembly is straightforward with two simple pages of assembly instructions. Glue is provided but there is no hint as to what brand it is-- I didn't want to wait for it thaw (-11 here) and used my bottle of trusty Titebond wood glue instead. This wood is thirsty but my bottle of Gorrilla glue apparently lost it shelf life, it is a rock.
If you glue like I do, you will want many damp rags for clean up. I was a little leery of not clamping anything, but it seems the dowels lock everything in place. A piece of sandpaper is also included. The parts are labeled with stickers. Hard to go wrong. You will want something to tap the dowels in (a hammer) and a Phillips screw driver. Everything is pre-drilled and easy. The dowels have a very slight taper to them, if they give you trouble, flip it over. I had extra screws and dowels left over. The steel with the screws is soft, good for wood but easy to strip out the heads.
This is my first experience with acacia wood. It is very light, much like red cedar (don't expect a white oak feel). No aroma.
I would have liked the seat a bit taller (I'm 6-4") and the rocker bottoms longer. You'll get an easy rocking motion out of this but nothing dangerous. Seat is plenty wide.
Wood had a few knots but all appear tight, don't expect any trouble. Feels like a very thirsty wood suggest your go heavy on the glue and just clean up. I used a q tip to get a light coat into the female areas and went heavy on the male ends. Other than that, just the test of time.

Theses are very nice and beautiful pieces. They are a little harder than normal to assemble. I ordered two and on hole was slightly off and broke the dowel, but I got it together. I am putting on multiple coats of Teak Oil, which really brings out the wood grain.

Nice chair! Took me about an hour to put one together (bought 2) but I'm a female and not super handy so someone who knows what they are doing will probably put these together faster. Great service at the company. Compared to other chairs I looked at these appeared to be higher quality and the price was not much different than others I looked at online.

We have our two rockers in patio. Ordered one awhile back, ordered a second. The Acasia wood is smooth to the touch and beautiful. Rockers are sturdy and comfortable. My husband said the assembly wasn't difficult, everything was there with easy to follow instructions. Good quality rocker. Happy, satisfied customers. Thank you STP! :D
