The drawers do not have dovetail joints, and I am not sure the wood is really oak throughout.....BUT the item is very well built, sturdy. It is also very elegant, Drawers function smoothly and are bigger than I expected. I like it a lot. Also, I was not sure about purchasing unseen and the hassles of shipment, but it was VERY well packed and arrived in perfect condition. The driver helped me get it in the house too!

Just received my 2 nightstands today. They are excellent. Dovetail joints and well lined drawers. I would recommend this these nightstands to anyone. Seem to be excellent quality. Time will tell, but for now perfect.

We ordered 2 of these night stands. They arrived quickly and were well packaged. They are very nice looking and are good quality, but one wobbles a little bit. The lining in the drawers is a very nice touch. Overall, they are excellent value for the money.
WOW!!! how do I review this nightstand without sounding like a paid advertisement??? This is my first furniture purchase from OStock and I'm Overly impressed with the quality of the product, it's craftsmanship, and style. I was even more impressed with how it was packed for shipping, ok perhaps at this point I will say that it doesn't take a lot to impress me...LOL! I look forward to my next furniture purchase. Back to the nightstand, fits perfectly in my bedroom alongside my bed and you cannot tell that the nightstand isn't apart of the set. I also appreciate that the inside of drawers aren't white or some plywood looking color, its nicely stained throughout. So thank you Overstock for such a GREAT deal on a GREAT product.

This is a really nice piece of furniture. I thought that it might be too large for use as a nightstand but it isn't. You can tell the quality of the construction right away not only by its (heavy) weight but by the construction techniques. This was also probably the best packed, well-protected piece of furniture that I have ever had delivered.

Note: I bought this through the Sears website, but fulfilled by Overstock. I'm posting a copy of the review I wrote at Sears.com here to share. --- I bought this nightstand because I wanted some nice furniture after getting a real job, and wanted to upgrade from the ikea type of laminated furniture that I used throughout college and grad school. This looked quite promising as it was described as solid oak. When it arrived, it's not too disappointing, but I definitely want to warn you that it's not solid oak as advertised. Packaging: 5/5. When this arrived today, I was worried because there was a 1 inch hole in one of the sides of the outside cardboard box, probably from somebody dropping a package on it en route. But when I opened it up, I found several layers of cardboard and styrofoam around the nightstand, and it wasn't damaged at all. Happy about it. Ease of assembly: 5/5 Came preassembled. Didn't have to waste time trying to figure out how to put it together - Excellent appearance: It looks good, with a nice rich espresso color. The surface is clearly veneered; you can tell this from the fact that the grain on the top surface of the nightstand does not carry over to the edges. I'm okay with this, but Sears really should clarify the description on the product page. Frame: 5/5. Solid and heavy. Stands well on the floor, no wobble. I'm guessing that based on a weight of about 50 lbs, a substantial amount of this piece of furniture could be real hardwood. But definitely not the drawers (see below) Drawers: 2/5. The drawers are relatively flimsy for multiple reasons. This might be acceptable if this nightstand cost $*, but certainly not at the ~$*price point I paid. 1) Sides and back are made of plywood. You can most easily tell at the back corners where the ends of the plywood pieces are exposed. You can also look up from below the drawers and see the layers of the plywood on the sides and back as well. 2) Bottom of the drawers is flimsy: The inside is nicely lined with fabric, which I liked at first. But the bottom didn't feel very sturdy, so I looked at the drawers from below, and the bottom piece is obviously just medium density fiberboard, not even plywood. This probably explains why the manufacture lined the drawer: to hide the cheap material. This make it much more prong to warping than real wood. 3) Joints: Front is glued to the sides via dado joints. The sides are attached to the back with dovetail, but this is totally just for show. When you're already working with low end materials and have other joints as weak as dados, dovetails are completely superfluous, and are just there so that the manufacture can make you think it's higher quality. Overall looks great on first glance, but not as satisfying when you examine the details. Actually not too surprising since it's made in China...
I can not be happier with this product. We bought both the dresser and nightstand. We are still waiting for the dresser to arrive and can't wait for it to get here now that I have the nightstand. It is absolutely beautiful and well crafted. The quality is pefect and is well worth its money.

We purchased these night stands and they are beautiful, the drawers open nice and they are big and roomy. One of the boxes came in a little dented and was soaking wet at the bottom, we opened it first and it was packaged so well, that there was no damage inside and the bottom of the nightstand was not even wet. The pirce was great, and I am thrilled with the purchase. I also love that it came fully assembled so we didn't have to spend time putting it together.

I always hold my breath when ordering expensive items online, but I didn't have to hold it too long this time. I ordered 2 of these nightstands, as well as the matching set of a chest and a dresser drawer. The nightstands were delivered within the week by UPS. They arrived in marvelous condition, no doubt owing to the fact that they were so very well packaged...no dents, no dings, no splinters. The product is beautiful and appears to be excellent quality, and we're very happy with them. I'm looking forward eagerly to receiving the rest of the set.
Would rank it 3.5 stars if I could. These nightstands are made of solid woods and are very heavy. I think they are of good value for the price if you can overlook some details. One of my drawer doesn't pull smoothly. Knobs are not of good quality. Joints look rough, in my case one of the vertex has a tiny gap between two pieces of woods. And they still smell after a month.
Really pleased with the quality and construction of the two ABBYSON LIVING Kingston 2-drawer Espresso Nightstands I ordered. Like that the drawers are lined and are installed well in the frame. My only issue was that two of my knobs came off during the shipping process.
I have this Nightstand as well as the bed and i love it. The color the style. the draws slide easy. It is well built, clean, elegant and consistent. It has been a great addition to my home decor. it shipped fast and arrived within a few days. couldn't be more happy with it.
