Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maxsmom1127 Wouldn't recommend
The bookshelf does not look as high quality as the Oxford desk - there is some exposed hardware, and its just not as sturdy looking. I have had it for a couple weeks, and it still is giving off an awful chemical smell. Probably would not purchase again.

Only complaint is the weight of the item in a box. Really should be 2 cartons, shelves in one, and tall pieces in another. For crying out loud, I'm a senior citizen, and grateful that I saw UPS man arriving so he could walk it into the foyer for me.
Easy FOR 2 PEOPLE to assemble.

Love the shelves. The only thing I would recommend is that they be put together in a place like the garage where it can stay for a few days, because the smell was pretty overwhelming. It went away after a few days, but we had to open the doors for about three days to air out the room.

The only complaint that I have is that If you tighten the screws just a bit too tight the wood will split. But once I figured that out it was fine. Very easy to assemble and I love the look!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GrammarPuss Attractive, sturdy bookcase
I am really pleased with this purchase, having searched for some time for a bookcase of the right size for a small den to hold large books, CDs, a few LPs, etc. It was well packaged and arrived without any damage; the chestnut finish is just as I expected from the picture, and the shelves appear to be nice and sturdy. One small quibble: the vertical spacing of the pre-drilled holes for the shelves limits somewhat your flexibiity in shelf placement (three evenly spaced, then a large gap, then three more, another gap, then three more, etc.), but there's no fixed shelf, so at least all of them are adjustable. Overall, very happy with my new bookcase!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gobuckeyes Good Purchase
The shelving unit is as advertised. Arrived in-tack, no obvious damage (one cracked shelf, but not to an extent to compromise the integrity of the shelf or to be returned). Easy assembly. Fair price (discounted) for the shelving unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shopgirl2 Good quality, but horrible smell!
This bookcase was well priced (actually, I got it on sale), looks good, and matched the website description. It was also fairly easy to put together. What made it a little confusing to assemble was that one of the pieces was mislabeled; the sticker that was supposed to indicate the back was actually on front. I don't think this will be an issue once the shelves and books are in place, though. So, really, I have only 1 complaint: it stinks! Really! I haven't put it in my room yet because of the smell. It has been in my garage to off-gas for about a week now (no exaggeration!). I hope I'm happy with it once I start using it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by courtyz Great purchase
I assembled this last night by myself and it was about 2 hours from start to finished with books on the shelves. I have put together several other pieces before, so it wasn't too difficult. This fits perfectly in the spot where I wanted it and looks great. The middle shelf is fixed and the others are adjustable. It also comes with hardware to mount it to the wall since it is so tall (I will be doing that since I have small kids). There was a ding in one piece during shipping (the box is HUGE), but it's on the top back and no one will ever see it so I didn't worry about it. I waited till they had free shipping so it was a pretty good deal!
