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.

Not what we expected. Not built well at all. Shop elsewhere.

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!

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.

I purchased this bookcase to match two existing bookcases. The photograph seemed to show that it was a match. When I opened the box, I found the color was darker than the photograph. I doublechecked the item number to make sure I didn't get the wrong one. Strangely, there were several small wooden spacers in the box that were a perfect match to the color in the photograph. I assume the factory changed the stain. Other than the color, the bookcase is acceptable.

The bookcase arrived in kit form in a cardboard box with the polystyrene foam packing material severely broken up into a million small pieces (what a mess trying to clean it up and dispose of the polystyrene). Upon opening the box and inspecting the items I noticed that the front covering of the vertical support divider had become unglued and sprung open over 18 inches in length from the top. Not sure if it was a shipping or manufacturing packing fault. Rather than return the bookcase I fixed it with some wood glue and clamps to re-glue it back down.
Overall the assemble went well and took about 1.5hrs. The rear panel cover I had to re-sellotape the folding joins as all the loose polystyrene foam in the box had stuck to the sellotape panels fold joints and they couldn't be opened to set flat against the back of the bookcase. Screwing the rear panels on was time consuming exercise.
The other issue is the bottom side panels do not have any corner blocks to stop the front foot board from twisting inwards. It is a bad design flaw and should be addressed by the manufacturer.
For the price I was expecting a better quality product.
