This desk is a nice size for a small office. It is very attractive and stylish. While I really like the look of the desk, I don't expect it will hold up very well. The finish is thin and flakes and mars quite easily. It is mostly constructed of pressed wood material with a thin wood veneer. It was a bear to put together. Some of the holes were not drilled in the right place, and I had to make some adjustments to make it all fit together well, which meant it took an entire day to assemble. It was reasonably priced for the quality.

As I've read from other reviews, the overall product is good quality. It is very necessary to follow the instructions exactly as described. They go in a certain order with good reason. This desk is not for the novice furniture assembler. I went a step further and glued all of my doweled joints. One of the joints was slightly off on the top right hand drawer stile and I had to rack the drawer during assembly to make it close flush. My biggest disappointment was with the routered hinge areas on the keyboard pullout dummy front. The right side rout was off by 3 to 4 inches. 3 TO 4 INCHES!!! How could a mistake like this happen?! Fortunately I had a forstner drill set and was able to duplicate the rout without sending the entire desk back. It is difficult to pull all of the pieces out of all three boxes and examine them for fit and finish before assembly. As it turned out I would have had to break joints apart to send the entire desk back. There was also a good sized nick and gouge on the bottom side of the door. Fortunately it is not noticeable unless it is pointed out. We had a local glass company cut a piece of glass for the top as it would not last long as a daily use desk without a glass top. Overall we are pleased with the desk, but it is what one would expect coming from Thailand.

Really a nice desk! It took me about 4-5 hours to put it together. Not difficult if you read the directions. Really enjoying it. There is enough room for my printer on top and flat screen monitor and room to use the desk too. It is the prefect size for me. I even have room for my calculator, lol.

This desk arrived on time and in excellent condition. It was unassembled but well packaged in three separate boxes. The instructions were good and the set of hardware was complete. In fact, there was one extra screw or locking style joint connector in each set. Assembly takes some time -- in my case, two three hour sessions. It was worth it, though, because a similar desk assembled would cost substantially more. I've been using the desk for several weeks, now, and am very happy with it.
We bought two of these. They are well made and are solid wood, not particleboard. The directions were pretty clear but there were a lot of parts so that the desks took about four hours each to assemble. They are handsome pieces of furniture but are NOT the color shown in the ad. They are a much darker cherry-looking wood. So long as that color fits your décor I would recommend this desk as being a very good value.
Hello mignonford, this desk has received excellent reviews! Unfortunately, we don't currently offer this desk in any other finish. I apologize for the inconvenience. I have included a link to some desks that may work for your. I hope this information helps. Thank you for shopping with us.

When looking at the reviews of the pedestal desk, I noticed that one review stated that the desk is made of particle board with a veneer over it. Is it really particle board or is it plywood as stated in another review?anapatrice on Feb 10, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello anapatrice, the side panels and the door panels, behind the framing, are hardwood veneers over plywood. The plywood is all hardwood and is used to prevent warping on the side panels, the back panel, and the door panels. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know.

Don't be put off by "veneer" most of the good old originals utilized highly figured veneers for the desired visual impact.uwstout2013 on Dec 30, 2013
