This bookcase is great- I like it so much, actually, that I am planning on buying another one. It's quite tall (I am bad, it seems, about double checking size descriptions online) and looks very high-quality once assembled. Assembly is pretty easy- the only issue I had with it was that a board got in the way of fitting 2 cams in. Minor detail, and it is still sturdy despite that.

Fairly easy to assemble. Unique shape lends itself to an attractive addition to most any room. I would have like the model with doors at the bottom, but unfortunately, that option wasn't offered. (Included in the paperwork was a picture of the second option.) Since our 2nd home doesn't offer as much storage as our custom built primary home, we were looking for something that would offer us more space.This seems to be something that will work well for our needs.
Like I said before, it only 15% MDF. The majority of it is particle wood. It is far too much money to be this chincy. They use the same pieces as the model with the doors. So you can see all of holes in section below (real classy). Then you can see the hardware in the above section. I would recommend buying 1 x 12's from you local lumber yard and creating shelves using bricks. At least you will be able to move it again after it is put together.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Only two shelves and the molding are MDF, the majority of it is particle wood. Certainly too much money to pay for particle wood garbage.

I love this bookcase for several reasons; the style - it's slant design is unique, sophisticated & beautiful, the quality - it's good quality for a ready to assemble piece (better than any other r.t.a furniture I've experienced), it's very heavy - with it being so tall (another feature I love) I was worried about the possibility of it fallling over (latches are included to attach it to the wall to prevent that from happening) but it is rock solid heavy and not going anywhere! There is a lot of shelf space & this bookcase holds a lot - even though it doesn't seem like it will when just looking at it (because it's narrow) - but I still have empty shelves after shelving two boxes of books - and I used 1 shelf purely for decorative items. This bookcase is not just functional, but it really does add a very nice decorative element to our home. The only reason I didn't rate excellent is because of the cardboard backing that has to be tacked on...I wish there were some kind of guide or something because I missed the back of the case on two nails & cracked the inside surface. A touchup pen is included and covered the cracks so they are in no way visible - but it just seems that there has to be some better way to get that backing on. Otherwise I am very pleased with this purchase and would buy it again and again.

Thank you for inquiring about the Everett Espresso Slant-back Bookcase. The three lower shelves can hold up to 20 lbs. The two upper shelves can hold up to 15lbs, and the shelves are 5/8” of an inch thick. Thank you for shopping with us.

The dimensions of the shelves are not the same - the case slants back, so the shelves at the top are not as "deep" as the shelves at the bottom. I just measured and got apprx 10" for very top shelf, and then 10.75", 11.5", 14" for middle shelf and bottom two shelves. The bookcase is consistently 26"W, so shelves are all same width. Hope that helps.savvyshoupper on Apr 21, 2013
