This cabinet is not the best quality, but the price is right. I painted it with chalk paint to match my lower cabinets and they look pretty good, if I do say so myself!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Good Value, So-So Quality
Installed a total of 8 various unfinished oak cabinets in my home office space. The main structure is wood-chip board; finished inside with a contact paper type of finish. Only the face frame & doors are oak. The joinery of the cabinets is ok. Good for a rental house but maybe not the "best" choice for a high-end kitchen. I finished mine in a Deft Semi-Gloss Lacquer.
A few things I found to be common with almost all 8 of the cabinets I bought. Excess glue on the inside - There were drips and runs inside all 8 of my cabinets. Not a big deal since it peels away with a little work. Rough sanding marks - 5 of the 8 I bought had deep, rough sanding marks in the face frame that took considerable time to sand out smooth enough to finish with a Lacquer. Gaps in the doors- mine all had a minimum of 1/8" & up to a 3/8" gap where the two doors met. One cabinet had dry, splintered wood on the face frame & spatters of dried glue that had to be scraped off.
Finishing the cabinets takes a little time if you plan to have a natural wood look. I started with a 220 grit sanding & finished with a 320 grit prior to application of deft Semi-Gloss Lacquer. I hand sanded between coats at 800 grit. Three coats on the frames & 4-5 on the doors makes them look pretty good for a "value priced" cabinet.
Cabinet features 1 adjustable shelf. Subtract 3" from width & height for clearance on the inside of the cabinet. This was critical to me for my intended use.
Overall, these are a good value but expect to put some time & effort in the finishing process to achieve a good look. If the sides will be visible, you will need to purchase trim kits or it will look like wood-chip board.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HeBe570 Great choice
We purchased these cabinets for our laundry room. Great choice and value. We still have to stain this cabinet when the weather gets warmer. Plenty of storage that was otherwise on shelves in plastic boxes that looked horrible. We previously purchased 3 of these cabinets and added this one and a smaller wall cabinet after un-stacking the washer & dryer.Now everything is inside the cabinets. It looks nice and neat. The room is perfect!

Of course these cabinets are not of the highest quality. But if like me your going to use them in shop/garage environment they are outstanding.

The only hard wood is the door and front trim, everything else is a cheap particle board. The hardwood panels in the doors rattle around and the trim is so roughly cut that some areas could not be sanded out and had to be filled. When picking them up, we had to sift through multiple cabinets in order to find one that was not beaten or busted. Even after that, we got them home to find some of the pieces such as the back mounting rails were missing. My advice is to buy something else, but if you do go with them, CAREFULLY inspect every one. We did our entire kitchen in them so time will tell if they hold up but we are not expecting much.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cjbr549 Bought these for the Garage
I bought some of these cabinets for my garage. They are low price and low quality. To make the bottoms look good, you will need to infill them, and the bottoms are not in evenly, which makes this difficult. They are also fairly light duty, and if you plan to put any weight on the self in them, you will have to reinforce it (I used a steel bar or angle bolted to the bottom). In all, these would be good shelves for a garage, shop or rental house or trailer. I would not put these in my home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GA58 Great for Workshop
I would not use these for a kitchen or bath. We got them to organize our workshop. As others have mentioned, these are not the best quality, but you can't make them for the price. Just depends on where you will put them and how much day to day use they will get. If you are looking for a clean storage opportunity, these fit the bill.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Projectmom Not structurally sound
I bought 3 of these to stack for a narrow kitchen pantry. I didn't realize until after I had stained and sealed them that they do not have the usual 1" x 4" nailers on the rear top and bottom that were on the cabinets I had installed in the past. We carefully reinforced these and feel they will be okay because they are stacked from the floor up so support each other's weight. I would not hang these up as wall cabinets because their rear structure is only particle board glued around the edges and would not support the weight of dishes, glasses, or canned goods.
