Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MedSchoolDIY Nice Wooden Bookcase--Oak
Very impressed with the Oak 2-shelf bookcase. The "X" design gives it a classic rustic look. Assembly wasn't too bad, except pay attention to which side will face the front as you assemble it. Otherwise, you might end up having some unfinished edges facing the wrong side. Other than that, I did not notice any ruff edges, especially after correctly assembled. It has a nice varnish on it that gives it a subtle shine and should help prevent any scratches. Overall, its a nice bookcase that should fit right in anyone's home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by iiiidiyer Great Looking, Functional and Easy to Assemble
This 2 shelf open concept wood bookshelf is very nice looking and happens to go well with the color scheme and flooring in our house. We considered putting it in a few different locations in our house, near the kitchen for cookbooks or in the living area for books and games. We finally decided to put the bookshelf in the master bedroom where we use the top shelf as a place to charge our phones and other electronics and the other shelves for some easy to reach books, a few DVDs and our electronic book readers.
The assembly was very easy and took about 10 minutes with an electric screwdriver. The instructions were very straight forward and easy to understand. All the pieces were well labeled and the result is a great looking bookshelf.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Agie Great piece, but be prepared for the set up!
I'm obsessed with the aesthetic of the piece and the quality for the price. It definitely adds industrial flair, but it isn't too themed. The only complaint I have is the set up. While it should have been easy in theory, it is impossible to get the cross bars in the back to line up. After having 3 different people try assembling and dissembling it to make it fit, we just couldn't get the holes on the bars to line up. We were only able to screw 3 of the 4 ends in so my shelf is a bit unstable than it should be, but it's still pretty sturdy. And I love the woodsy smell it adds to the space because of the solid wood shelves.
Overall, I would buy it again. I would just have given up on the crossbars earlier than I did!

$247.00 for THIS it was not painted they grey was more of a base coat drab not a complete paint job. The X bars on back are made of un-sanded wood
