Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mn2016 The shelf arrived broken. Yes, the side molding on the right was literally and totally broken. In addition, the side wall was cracked too, ready to break apart. I found myself with this heavy unpacked shelf which would have been a hassle to return (that was my first idea). Then I tried to glue it and fix it. It looks quite bad. I am very very unhappy with its quality. I called customer service, sent in a few pictures of the broken parts, and got a refund of 20%, but that's obviously not a satisfactory outcome...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NGM Very sturdy, heavy, nice looking piece of furniture. While assembly is fairly time consuming I was able to do it myself (61 year old female) and the results were worth the effort. I love both of the bookcases and they add a special touch to the room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EdBa Complete failure
The box was not damaged upon arrival. But after opening the box to start assembly, most every piece of wood had a scratch or gouge mark. I thought at first that the scratches would not show, if on the inside of the cabinet. But then a side piece had a trim piece glued onto it. The glue had apparently dried out and the trim had fallen completely off the main piece. This could not be fixed. Most every piece of wood had some defect. I stopped assembly and quit. I would not recommend this piece, and I am afraid to purchase a replacement from the same company, it was so bad. I will look elsewhere for a bookcase.

While the Shelves are made of manufactured wood, you wouldn't know it. The technique used makes the shelves feel and look like solid wood. Even the backing is made of a Thin Plywood like material. Very solid and sturdy and putting it together is easy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by angry have not been able to assemble because correct parts were not in box and replacements haven't been sent!
This was expensive for something that I cant put together because I received to "right" sides and no left, so the compressed wood is just sitting in my living room waiting for someone to call /email.. and nothing! I want my money back. I'll have to repackage everything and pay for return because the vendor can't send me a correct part!

On the plus side, they are easy to assemble. On the negative side - every\thing else. Made of particle board with a thin slice of veneer glued on, the unit comes with a lot of excess glue to get off and poorly filled nail holes. The worst part if that on the edges (say the front of the shelves) there are large gaps between the veneer strips where they were fit poorly. Glue shows through, giving them a very work, poor-quality look. Considering that we had looked and looked for the right shelves to create a library (we bought five units) my wife wanted to put the best spin on it. She said it makes it look like a really old set of shelves that have the edges chipping and worn out from decades of use. Okay - but I wanted new and classy. These would have been a good buy for $100 at a discount store, but a big disappointment at the price and with my high expectations. And apparently don't try to load a photo of a negative review. I had two to show the poor workmanship, but they won't load in either chrome or Explorer in less than 30 minutes (they are well under the supposed 5 mb limit).
