Commercial wooden furniture is the perfect way to complete your domestic garden or patio space. There is an excellent range to fit outdoor spaces of all sizes, with choices for various needs and uses. However, wooden garden furniture is often delivered unassembled or partly assembled to enable an efficient and timely delivery service.

With your wooden garden furniture delivered in pieces, assembly is down to you. You might be proficient in DIY, but more likely than not, you are a complete novice, with a toolbox containing a screwdriver, spanners, and a hammer, that rarely see the light of day.

If this is the case for you, then you might be fearful of even the idea of receiving self-assembly garden furniture. However, there is little to be afraid of, and whether you are young or old, male or female, you can get the job with relative ease.

Our Assembly Guide

Before you begin to unpack the pieces of your wooden garden furniture, please take it to the location where you intend to place it. If you carry out your garden furniture assembly on your front yard and then need to move it to your back garden, then the fully assembled item may be difficult to manoeuvre down a narrow side passage or through your home.

Your next step should be to unpack the pieces of the wooden garden furniture. If you need to use a knife to do this, be careful not to cut yourself or slice into the furniture. Check that you have received all of the pieces identified in the assembly instructions and grab all of the tools you need to complete assembly. Next, carry out the assembly step-by-step. It helps to carry this work out on a flat level surface.

Many people find that assembling items such as garden furniture is easier with the help of a second person. If you are not sure of a step, then a second pair of eyes can often spot the solution.

MG Timber makes self-assembly a breeze with a set of easy-to-follow assembly videos. You can follow these in real-time and assemble all our items in a short amount of time. If you are looking for a super-easy alternative to paper instructions, check out these ‘how to’ videos.
