This desk is really fantastic. It took me about an hour to put it together, (while watching t.v.) and it works great. The inner desk DOES slide under the outer desk completely. The inner desk measures about 42" and the outer desk is 47.25" wide. There is a panel that goes across the width under the desk that the inner desk fits over. Sometimes the inner desk might catch on this (as they are very close fitted) and this might be the reason the other reviewer thought the desk didn't push all the way in. I just hitch the side up a little as I'm pushing it in and it works fine. This desk looks beautiful and was exactly what I was looking for! I keep my computer on the top portion and my son's piano/keyboard on the bottom section. There is also a drawer in the middle which I didn't remember seeing on the description when I ordered it but was a nice added bonus.

Wish I had heeded the other poor reviews before buying this desk. It made of very cheap laminate that was chipped and peeling right out of the box. The assembly instructions are extremely difficult to follow, took me 3+ hours to assemble (there are @ 172 pieces). I usually enjoy putting furniture together and am good and fast at it, but this was not fun. In the end, the nesting desk will not go all the way inside unless I slam it, it's difficult to pull it back out again and the whole desk slides around. The packing materials were also a nightmare, two big trash bags full of Styrofoam what an environmental disaster. Finally, it's nowhere near as good looking as the photo, it's a lighter uneven color, cheap looking and kind of klunky. Go to XXXX instead get value for your money and be happy with a good looking piece for your home.
