Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CriticalCustomer Good looks, poor quality for the price!
I bought this bookshelf and two 3 shelf bookshelves of the same line. The assembly was fairly easy. However, the quality of workmanship is suboptimal: Some of the holes for the back panel had not been drilled, some of the threads in the holes for the screws had glue in them, so that I had to scrape the dried up glue out of them, before I was able to put the screws in. Of one of the bookshelves the top came of after I had screwed it on, because the counterparts of the screws didn't stay in the wood panel. All in all, a rather easy assembly, the looks are good, but for the price of the product, I would have expected a little bit more quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BethesdaBirder Perfect for our purposes
We purchased two of these bookcases for use in a guestroom. They arrived just a few days after we placed our order.
As other commenters have noted, the light finish is really closer to a cherry finish (which was what we wanted). My husband and I worked together on assembling the bookcases, and found the instructions very easy to follow. Once we had constructed the first bookcase and understood the principles of the construction, the second went together very quickly. The finished product is very attractive and stable. These are a very good value for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doxiemomma Attractive bookcase-everything was there!
Often when we purchase furniture that requires assembly, there are screws, nuts, or bolts missing from the package necessitating a call to customer service for replacements. That is a bummer as we then have to wait for the shipment to proceed with assembling it. This time was perfect. Nothing was missing. Instructions pretty clear. I was the "gofer" assisting my husband but honestly this bookcase was something he could have done alone. Very happy with the look and feel of the product.

I purchased this for my home office that is decorated in an arts and crafts/asian fusion style. This is the second piece in the "Artisan" line I've purchased and have been able to put both pieces together myself in little time. I'm very pleased with the quality for the price, especially with a coupon! I now have a few more Artisan pieces on my wish list! The macintosh finish is very dark, so I recommend buyers choose the "light oak" if you are not interested in a dark, dark finish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DDon Artisan Bookcase is Fantastic!
I have been re-decorating my study and I needed some Arts and Crafts style furniture. I love the look of the high end well known brand but I need something much less expensive. I have some very nice Arts and Crafts pottery, art work, and other items so I decided to spend much less on the furniture. This bookcase is such a good value that I just ordered another one! I have ordered other items in this set and they were less than perfect. But customer service has been excellent in helping me resolve the issues. It did not take long to assemble the bookcase and it looks fantastic! I got the look of a high end arts and crafts room for a very low price. This bookcase is a bargain and is the best item that I have bought in this series. It is heavy, solid, and well made, with a minimal effort required for assembly. I plan on buying more of this nice furniture!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UnionJack Great bookcase, great value
If you are looking for a bookcase that fits in a smaller place, then look no further. The side to side width in the middle is 29 inches. The assembly is moderately difficult especially joining the cam bolts to the locking nuts for the cap piece. The finish is gorgeous highlighting the wood grain. This is an exceptional value for the money spent..
