Don't waste time, money, and effort ...
on May 18, 2017
If all you want is a quick top and some legs, go ahead and buy it - otherwise don't waste your time or money.
This arrived in a rather large box, pretty beat up, but looked like everything would be fine. I unpacked everything carefully to make sure all of the main parts were in order, they weren't... The top and legs looked fine, as did the bottom shelf.
The solid wood parts are mostly made of finger jointed pieces, but there are quite a few pressed board components as well (see drawers below.)
The "drawer system" however was a mess. The drawers themselves are made out of press board and laminate (almost every one was chipped in some way.) One of the drawer sides was completely destroyed and one of the "felt lined drawer bottoms" was crushed beyond useful. The center support for the drawers was actually partially built, but the sides didn't line up and would make it impossible for the drawers to slide properly.... I actually considered just rebuilding the drawers and support using the hardware, but realized the whole reason I bought this was to get back to work quickly not add to my already growing list of projects.
