Love this cabinet... Beautiful rubber tree wood, otherwise known as Malaysian Oak. The cabinet pieces are pre-sanded which is nice. I have finished the natural base coat before the stain. The wood grain is beautiful. Cant wait till its finished.
We purchased this cabinet because we have very little pantry space in our home. So, we're using this to store canned goods. The size is perfect for what we need, it was easy to assemble, it's very sturdy, and a very good looking cabinet. We're will stain it a darker color eventually but it works perfect for our needs.
We love it! Far exceeded our expectations as far as quality and construction. Very well made using fine quality wood, weighty and solid. We painted it to match an existing shelf. It was packaged very well and arrived in about a week. I would highly recommend this purchase.
I needed a cabinet of a "certain size" and this cupboard was precisely the right size for me. I received it about 3 days after ordering it. It was well-packed and the heavy cardboard box was also strapped x 2, which I appreciated. The hardware packet was in a bag, which also had a strong string that was tied into the box so that even if the box had come open, the hardware would not have been lost. Plenty of padding in between the pieces and nothing was broken.
Right up front, if you are worried about hanging a cabinet door, forget it. The door is pre-mounted to the cabinet front, and you attach the cabinet to the front with the door already in place.
A couple things: I was missing a few of the shelf brackets, but that was not an issue for me. When I put in the first two shelves, the construction of the braces was just ever so slightly off, which made the bolts too short so I had to omit some of the lock washers, however I don't think this is going to be an issue. Even the back is wood, even though it is very thin. They recommend nailing the back to the cabinet, I think I'm going to glue mine in place along the edges with a couple of nails to hold it in position.
The top shelf and next to bottom shelf are adjustable, the other two are fixed and hold the cabinet in place structurally. (Note that the shelf that goes on the bottom also has a second magnet cabinet closure on it, you will need to put that shelf on the bottom so that the door has closures on top and bottom.
The directions were pictures and easy too follow. The hardware diagrams of the screws were not very good, however you can figure it out as you go along.
I have a table that's natural and white, so I think I'll paint part of the cabinet white and leave other parts natural, with a coat of poly over the top of everything.
Structurally it seems very solid, weighs about 50 pounds, and i'm very pleased.
And I'm a 66 year old woman, who assembled this by herself. I have assembled other pieces through the years, but I'm certainly no expert. I took my time and the assembly was completed in a couple of hours.
Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, Easy to Assemble, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Well Made
Whoever designed these directions needs to be fired. They combined like 5 steps into one step. The order makes NO sense. I had to take it apart like 4 times and reassemble. When I realized that one of the legs was shorter than the other, I threw everything in my car as is and returned it. What pathetic POS. If you have ANY trouble assembling furniture, I recommend skipping this one. And whoever says this was easy to assemble is either from the company or they are a magician.
I love it. The wood is very beautiful and sturdy....

I love it. The wood is very beautiful and sturdy. We decided to give it an oil and beeswax finish because I am storing my home canned food in it. It is sturdy, beautiful, and holds a lot for the size. I only wish I had ordered the larger size.
