Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1craftsmanfan OK but not great
This bookcase seems to be sturdy and looks OK, but the finish is not very good. It will be filled with books, so that won't be as noticeable as on some other furniture pieces. Because of the finish, I counted off on the value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ruffeye Good Bookcase
Looks good and is easy and quick to put together. Solid wood, but it's not clear what kind of wood. Only some of the parts are labeled, so be sure to lay them out first. The stickers are very hard to peel off, so it's good that everything doesn't have a sticker on it. The wood scratches easily, so be careful when you try to scrape off one of the stickers. Still, it seems very solid, much better than the folding type of bookcase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by appletree Not the best workmanship.
The bookshelf looks nice now. BUT my husband had to re-drill the holes for the top because it originally did not overhang evenly on both sides! Also, there are 6 holes on the top shelf braces which should have had little plugs to hide them, as there are for the side holes where the screws went in. The stain was obviously sprayed onto the side walls, but places were missed. One shelf started to crack when he screwed in the screw. So...I do like the style, but the workmanship could have been better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sceptical disappointing
This bookcase is a very handsome piece of furniture. However it is neither strong nor sturdy. Even with books on the shelves it moves if it is even slightly touched. It sits on the floor at a slight angle. We are disappointed in that we expected it to be a better product.
We are considering returning it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judithaz Great style! Great color. The stain blends with cherry and mahogany as well as the walnut.
They look beautiful combined together. I ordered 3. Assembling was easy. Tiny parts of the finish on the edges was marred but more from packing straps on the pieces...not the workmanship. I would have loved to have a small color marker to go over those marks. The shipping being free and the amazingly quick and well organized shipping will make me order again. I always knew information about the order on the computer with my CS #. It was here in 4 days. Good job!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bowen605 Great addition to laundry room
I purchased this bookcase to use in the laundry room, adding a nice wicker basket on each shelf. The bookcase was easy to assemble until it came to putting on the top (mantel) piece. All of the pieces had pre-drilled holes except this one. It's really a guess as to where to attach the mantel crossbars, and they don't go where you think they would. I guessed wrong, and now the top isn't where it should be. However, this is a very nice bookcase, and I would definitely recommend it, just be careful with the top piece.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by finaleyes Affordable Mission-style Bookcase
I bought one of these bookcases about 10 years ago. It is still standing solid. When I needed another bookcase, I went online and searched for Mission-style bookcase and found the very same kind (or at least I was hoping it was exactly the same). As you can tell from the photo, it IS the same, and I set them up side by side so it looks almost like one case.
I had a little trouble putting it together; it would have been very simple with two people. The directions were good, the parts were all there, and everything fit together just the way it was supposed to.
For the price, I don't see how you could do any better. If I need a third bookcase, this one's going to be it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lolarich Excellent value
I read previous reviews prior to my purchase - they were all very helpfull. These book cases (I got two) are, simply, an excellent value. I had some difficulty in putting the first together - but realized it was my problem - because when I got to the second one it went together quickly. Perfect purchase for my needs. Advice: read reviews and take with some salt re: ease of assembly - does not take a "carpenter" - just take your time and be 'smart'. I looked in many local stores for what I needed - simple bookcases - found them to be way over priced - and here I discovered good quality (real solid wood) for a great price......I do indeed recommend these units.
