All of the bigger sides of this unit were not hardwood. The hardwood in the other pieces was of a poor quality. Not even sure what hardwood it was to resemble. The hardwood was made up of smaller pieces (scrap wood ) of joined wood to make bigger pieces. After assembly drawers would not open or close without force. Some panels did not match in color. For the price, way to much assembly. 153 assorted screws, 41 pieces of assorted hardware, 42 shelf pins and 64 pieces of wood and panels to be joined. This product was higher end than pressboard through and through, but still not worth the time and money.
