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.

The unit looks good, I purchased 3 of these bookcases, one with the open bottom shelf and two with doors. I placed them next to each other to get the "library" look on a budget.
The product arrived undamaged thru UPS ground. The boxes are quite heavy, 70lb each. The assembly instructions are horrible, none of the parts are marked with an item name corresponding to the instruction booklet and they all look very similar, shelves, shelves and shelves. The first unit took me a little while to put together, the other two went faster.
This item is made out of engineered wood so it's very soft, be very careful when you handle it during assembly as it will get scratched or chipped very easily. I actually chipped a corner, but since these will be side to side, it won't be visible.
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.

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
