Rated 4 out of 5Â by Retired66 Overall a nice ironing board
I am pleased with this ironing board -the only problem I encountered was it was missing a piece of wood at the top and a like piece at the bottom - they would not be seen unless you were over 6'2"(or you squatted down and looked under) once installed. However, I didn't want dirt to get in (or possibly, cold air to leak around) so I made a strip to replace the missing ones and it came out nice -once painted, you couldn't tell. It is really great to use -no more taking the conventional board in and out of the closet!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Beth A good product!
Our iron fits perfectly in the top compartment of the center and our electrician added a receptacle to that area. The swivel on the board is super and all parts of the product are sturdy and nice .. except the hinges on the door. Although the hinges work fine, they could work better. Home Depot did well delivering the center in a timely fashion. Please correct the hinges and this will be a perfect item!
We painted the door to match the trim in our home.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Goofy Nice, but cheap hardware
I bought the unfinished oak model since I am going to paint it to match my other laundry room cabinets. It is very well-made. The door and face frame are solid oak. It fits right against the wall with no gaps (as others have suggested).
The only drawback is that the hardware is cheap. The screws and hinges are made of soft metal. Don't even attempt to use the screws - they WILL break off or the heads will strip no matter now careful you are or how well you've drilled the pilot holes. Just get some better ones and save yourself the trouble. I did that, but used the hinges and unfortunately, broke one of them the first time I closed the door. The screws weren't in tight on the door side and when I pushed the door in, the metal part in the hinge snapped. I've emailed the company to get a new one, but still may get some better ones at the hardware store.
I am a small 53-year-old woman and installed this myself, except for lifting the unit into the opening. My husband helped with that as it is heavy.
I have a Rowenta Precision iron and it fits nicely on the shelf.
This is a well made product, just has cheap hardware. You will do yourself a favor by buying better hardware yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Edward Very nice product and works well
Very nice product and it literally was minutes after removing from the shipping box until it was installed. I think I must have got a bad door that was split with the edges not completely routed correctly. About the hinges. Throw them away and purchase a more robust hinge that facilitates the same type swing. Other than that it is a very nice unit and would buy it again depending on how well customer support is at replacing the door. Wish me luck!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by gilx Good Product, bad screws.
Installed this for my fiance yesterday in her quilting room, and very satisfied overall. I am not the handiest guy, but have basic knowledge and basic skills. The directions were clear enough and the finished installation looks good and feels sturdy. She is overjoyed to start using it today. Took one star off for the cheap brass screws included to attached the hinges. Don't even try, just throw them out and use any other screws of the same size. Even drilling pilot holes and forgoing a powered screwdriver and using only hand-power, the heads twist off these screws immediately. I broke 3 before I realized the problem wasn't me. If you work around that, everything else is satisfactory with this product, although I have to seal a slight gap at the top (though it's not visible or unsightly in the room, just for energy efficiency ) which I expect to be easy and not a pressing matter in my case.
