I was very hesitant to order this wine cabinet due to a few 1-star reviews posted here on Amazon. After several days of consideration, I finally gave in and clicked the buy-now button. Within 48 hours, a refrigerator-sized box was waiting outside my door. After assembling the wine cabinet, I was very impressed with its quality and appearance.

Assembly/Construction: The cabinet arrives in an extremely-well packaged box containing approximately 25 individual pieces(including screws, washers, etc). Each piece is individually wrapped, and aside from a few very minor nicks and dings, everything was in good-shape. It was evident that the cabinet came directly from a manufacturing facility - meaning the pieces had some flakes of saw dust, specks of styrofoam, and assorted debris covering them. I highly recommend you use a soft towel to individually wipe each piece as you assemble the cabinet. From start to finish, it took me about 20 minutes to assemble the entire cabinet. Aside from the materials included in the box, the only tools I needed were a simple flat-head screwdriver, and a towel. It came with an assembly-diagram and was very easy to put-together.

Appearance/Quality: This cabinet is absolutely beautiful. After reading a few negative comments, I was afraid it would look flimsy and cheap. It does not. The columns are each made from solid pieces of wood. The saucer-shaped bases are made from extremely well constructed particle board. The finish is smooth and beautiful. It feels solid, and the coloration is exactly as it appears in the picture. It's evident that a lot of time and effort went into the manufacturing of each and every component of this wine cabinet.

I don't normally write reviews, however, I was so pleased with this purchased I felt the need to do so. I was nervous because I wasn't familar with the seller. It was ordered on a Thursday and arrived on Monday in perfect conditions as it was well packed. Set up was a breeze, and the peice looks better in person than in the picture! It's a perfect size for the corner of my small home office. The quality is well worth the price. The inside holds about 4 bottles max and plently of glasses. The bottom shelf can hold at least 10 bottles. If you're on the fence about ordering, I can tell you I am very satisfied with this purchase. Can't wait to roll this baby out during dessert at our next dinner party! Every time I open it I feel like I'm in a episode of "Mad Men".

This is really a terrible design. I've owned this for a couple months and the paper on the rounded part (the entire map) has worn off. Now each piece of map paper is coming off and that makes this whole product useless. It's total junk.

I had this product in my cart for probably 6 months or longer before I finally decided to buy it. All of the negative reviews about it being cheap, poorly made, inaccurate, etc really made me skeptical. However, my home office is now complete and I figured I might as well pull the trigger and buy this. If it was as bad as all those reviews, I would just return it. Let me tell you, I'm more than happy with this product. Is it a real map? No. But hopefully you're smart enough to not try to navigate with this product. I think it looks fantastic, and to be honest I haven't found where the map "doesn't match up" as many of the negative reviews stated. Another negative review I read was that it was flimsy and the hinge breaks immediately. The hinge works fine, you just have to make sure you follow the directions and use the provided washer when tightening it. It's actually very sturdy when properly installed and tightened. The legs and wheels are sturdy too, after I put it together I gave it a few really good shakes and nothing moves out of place or feels lose. I rolled it around a bunch to test the wheels and it was fine. There is a ton more storage inside than I thought as well. I have a four 750ml bottles inside the globe now and then a bunch of glasses, as well as a few stored underneath. This was a breeze to put together and it looks fantastic in my home office. For under $150, this is a great product and I'm glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews.

True, the prime meridian line doesn't match up on one side. And the map and frescos look cheap if you closely inspect them. But for $130, it's a still a decent deal to me. The trick with the meridian is to line it up correctly facing forward, and have the mis-align underneath the arm of the globe so no one ever sees it.

Some notes for potential buyers:
1. The opening half of the globe only has two resting positions, fully open or fully closed. The photo of the product when I bought it (now it's different) suggested you could have it partially open, which is not the case.
2. The area in the pictures that show glasses being stored aren't wide enough for a traditionally-sized 750ml bottle. You can fit small bottles or jars, like bitters and maraschino cherries, and pint glasses. The center where it shows the bottle of wine can fit 3 or 4 750ml bottles, depending on the shape.
3. You can fit 9-12 750ml bottles on the bottom tray, again, depending on shape.
4. Due to the material the top half of the globe is made of, it's a little wobbly and you should be rather gentle with it when opening and closing... basically, treat it the way you would treat an actual 16th century globe bar and you should be fine.
