We just received this shelf - the parts looked nice coming out of the box, but that is where the positive ended. First, the shlves are made of very thin (about 1/2 inch) particle board covered with veneer. The particle board appears to be of low quality - one shelf actually split when i tried to tighten the faster. I would barely rate it as MDP - certainly not furniture grade material! I could live with that - it did not much affect the structural integrity of the broken shelf, which was one of the narrowest ones. The thing that really upset us is that the shelves are attached with screws that go through the sides - there are no covers for the screw holes! If I had noticed this when i started i would have taped the box back together and sent it back, but it did not dawn on me until I was done. I even checked the instructions to see if I had missed them somehow, but the instructions do not indicate any covers. So, there are 8 big, gaping, unsightly, and unfinished holes on each side of this unit! It is going to be relegated to a dark corner someplace where you cannot see the screw holes!
