Rated 1 out of 5Â by BenT Be aware! 95% particle board!
"GENUINE WOOD VENEER" What a joke! Only the surface paper thin layer is wood, all the boards are particle board. You spend three times the money for a particle board bookcase with 2/3 for the paper thin wood finish. I was expecting at least plywood construction with solid wood inserts, neither. But does look good and seems sturdy. Did not want to assemble. No hassle return to local HD store.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by STKs Not worth the price
Not worth the price. I purchased two shelves and both had multiple chips on panels and the fascia on some of the shelves needed to be re-glued. The fascia was not attached to the shelf and you could see where it had been glued and nailed- in fact, the nails were still in the fascia. For this price, I shouldn't have to grab a bottle of elmers glue and do repairs on a brand new product.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by EdBa Complete failure
The box was not damaged upon arrival. But after opening the box to start assembly, most every piece of wood had a scratch or gouge mark. I thought at first that the scratches would not show, if on the inside of the cabinet. But then a side piece had a trim piece glued onto it. The glue had apparently dried out and the trim had fallen completely off the main piece. This could not be fixed. Most every piece of wood had some defect. I stopped assembly and quit. I would not recommend this piece, and I am afraid to purchase a replacement from the same company, it was so bad. I will look elsewhere for a bookcase.

Purchased 2 of these. Product was damaged in many areas. Centers on both were not attached when receiced. Also the backs of both were very warped. I think if I had to do it again I would get these built in a cabinet shop.

While the Shelves are made of manufactured wood, you wouldn't know it. The technique used makes the shelves feel and look like solid wood. Even the backing is made of a Thin Plywood like material. Very solid and sturdy and putting it together is easy.
