Nightmare to Assemble
 from Los Altos CA,  Mar 25, 2009

The Buffet is quite nice when assembled, but getting there is not an easy path. The instructions appear to be translated from Chinese by a computer, making it difficult to understand what is required. One problem area is hanging the doors, but the most challenging is placing the slide rails for the three bottom drawers. I still do not have mine on properly, after hours of trying different options. Note: the screws for assembly look similar but vary in length by small amounts. Be certain to use the proper screw in the correct location, as you may find that using a slightly larger screw in an improper location will cause the wood to bulge or split. My suggestion is to pay more for a fully assembled unit so as to avoid having to spend 10-20 hours putting this thing together, and not getting it right in the end.

Nice!
 from Minnesota,  Jun 13, 2008

This buffet came quicker than expected. After searching and searching for months for something that would work the my space, I ordered it to be used as a cabinet for our TV components with the TV mounted on the wall above. It is larger in scale than most pieces used as TV cabinets, but it is what I wanted. There is plenty of room for everything and the drawers below are good for controllers, and cases. My husband assembled it in a few hours, but I don't think I could have done it by myself. It was tedious but worth it when considering the same piece at a furniture store would have cost twice the price. The wood quality is beautiful and solid! I highly recommend this for at TV cabinet or a buffet.

NIce piece, but....
 from Gwynn Oak, MD,  Feb 7, 2012

I received this product yesterday. I just contacted customer service to send another top piece. As several other reviewers have stated, the top splits while it is being assembled. I made sure not to overtighten the screws because I was aware this could happened. It did anyway. Overall, it seems like a nice piece that matches very close in color to the existing furniture in the room. As one other reviewer stated, the color scratches off very easily - like nail polish on a nail vs. stain embedded in wood. It has good weight to it, not flimsy at all, and a nice but not overbearing size. Some tips: 1) Read directions before putting together. 2) Organize your parts. 3) Use an ELECTRIC screwdriver! If you do this by hand, you are a glutton (sp) for punishment!!! Screws go in quick in pre-drilled holes which are smaller than the screw (for grip). If you do this by hand, you'll be sorry... 4) 4mm hex wrench is not included. You may have one around the house from other items you've ordered in the past. Luckily, I had several! :) 5) Make sure you screw the screws in the holes straight! This will prevent difficulty in lining up holes and pieces when putting together. 6) The directions are clear but the diagrams are small. Manufacturer should make pictures bigger. Make sure to study the pictures when putting on drawer slides for proper direction. Also for which holes screws and pegs are to go through. 7) I am a 50-yr old woman. I was able to get most of it together by myself. The buffet is heavy - I would not suggest lifting alone for your safety and for the safety of the wood not splitting anywhere else! 8) For the price, and I was able to find a coupon online to save $25, I still don't think for the amount of work and the quality of the wood and stain, that this is worth more than $400. I have put 4 1/2 hours into this just to get the main "body" together. I still have to put together the drawers and doors on the front. But I knew from other reviews this would be time consuming. 9) Get a furniture pen to touch up pieces when finished.

Great buy!
 from PA,  Jul 3, 2012

I have to say I was pleasantly suprised with this buffet! It is heavy! It feels like a quality piece of furniture, not a cheap put-together-yourself piece. It took me about 6 hours to put together myself, with occasional help from my husband. I was very careful with the pieces after reading previous reviews that it can scratch easily. Some parts took some time to attach exactly and the doors were a bit of a pain to get straight, but with some time and patience it looks perfect.

Beautiful buffet
 from Yuma, Az,  Feb 11, 2014

Ordering, packing and shipping of this was excellent. I had never had a piece of furniture made from Rubber Wood and am very pleased with the fact that it is solid wood and not particle board covered with laminate. Assembly definitely takes two people and some of the parts were difficult fitting together. But once I finished it and put my things in it I found I am very pleased with my buffet and highly recommend it.

Very pleased with product
 from Minneapolis, Minnesota,  Aug 15, 2013

The buffet arrived in three well-packed and well labeled cartons. After reading reviews before purchasing, I was careful to read instructions before unpacking and line up all of the hardware. Each package of hardware is numbered and as long as the assembler keeps the packages in order and all unused items in the appropriate package, there will be no problem with installing the correct hardware at every step. I would have been unable to get the buffet assembled without the aid of my husband, as some pieces are quite heavy and cumbersome. Not everything went together easily, but it wasn't too bad and we finished in about three hours. Forget about using the hex tool -- get a good screwdriver of the correct size and you will be better off. Also, the rubber hammer is an absolute must. The buffet is good looking and I am pleased. I was apprehensive about purchasing an assembly required piece of furniture, but it turned out great. I won't be apprehensive again.

Beautiful, but prepare for an overwhelming project
 from Myrtle Beach,  Jan 6, 2013

I love the piece, it's beautiful, heavy, and looks expensive. That said...it was an 8+ hour project for a structural engineer husband to put together. We needed to break it into 2 days because it was just too detailed to tackle in one day. I think it would be too much of a challenge for a lot of people, but now that it's done, it was worth it to us. Be sure to follow the directions very closely. The first top was cracked but was promptly replaced by customer service.

Positive Review
 from Brooklyn, New York,  Apr 10, 2012

The product was a little difficult to assemble. I would have preferred that it arrived assembled as other products. The doors and drawers are a little off and do not open very easily. But the item is made of strong material and large enough to hold many things.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very good
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality, was very pleased.

Positive review - Only 1 minor assembly issue
 from MIlwaukee, WI,  Aug 3, 2011

Initially was nervous about ordering furniture online as I prefer to see and touch things before purchasing but the the review comments were generally so positive that I took the risk. Product arrived in a week from order. Setup was not as difficult as I feared based on other review comments. It took about 4 hours but was also drinking wine and watching a movie at the same time - without those could have probably be done more quickly. There is a scratch in the top piece, but It possible I might have done this as I assembled on a hardwood floor and didn't put a blanket down initially. I rubbed a little stain on the scratch and it is not very noticable. The only disappointment in assembly is that the screw holes for the door attachment were not drilled deep enough and I needed to correct.

Great Piece
 from San Diego, CA,  Feb 8, 2010

Product arrived only 3 days after purcahse! Was overwhelmed at first by the amount of pieces that it had, but the finished product is phenomenal. Took about 4-5 hours to assemble (from boxes to completion)...may have been quicker if I would have had electric screwdriver--- Very sturdy and heavy piece...I'm very pleased with my first Overstock purchase and am looking forward to finding other great products.

Just Perfect
 from Atlanta, GA,  Mar 7, 2009

I bought this buffet on 3/1/09, and it was delivered on 3/6/09! We assembled it that same night.There were two of us working on it, and were able to complete it in 2.5 hours. the directions were very simple to understand, and there were ample spare pieces. There were no broken pieces, and the 3 boxes arrived from Salt Lake City to Atlanta in tact.I love this buffet! It fits perfectly in my dining room. My table and chairs have a slightly more redish hue, but the piece still fits in vvery well!The center door is not even as the others are, so I may tweak it some more, but I don't fault the manufacturer, but perhaps my haste to finish the install.All in all, This was a great buy. I didn't realize how deep the shelves were, you can fit two plates in it.

Beautiful and spacious.
 from Bonney Lake, WA,  Oct 26, 2014

This purchase was not w/o issues. The original shipment was short a box. Customer Service was great and sent me out the missing box next day. Then, we discovered that on the top front of the buffet, the wood was split. Again, Customer Service handled the situation and sent out a new piece next day. The assembly was methodical, but once it was all assembled, I have to say that it is a beautiful, quality piece of furniture that I will be proud to own for many years. It has amazing storage space and I finally have room for all my china and crystal w/o taking up valuable kitchen cupboards. The best part of this story is the amazing Customer Service I received. I would recommend this piece and Overstock to anyone.

Great Buffet
 from Sacramento, CA,  Jun 2, 2013

I am very pleased with this purchase. The end product looks great and appears much more expensive than the cost. The assembly is a bit of a chore but took a friend and I about 4 hours (with a fair bit of wine). You definitely want an electric screwdriver/drill on low torque!

Great looking piece of furniture
 from Lancaster, PA,  Feb 12, 2013

This is a really nice buffet - it looks more expensive than it is. It is solidly built and holds a lot! The one downside is that it did take quite a long time to assemble - there are a lot of parts and steps to go through. With tow of us it took almost 5 hours!

I'm impressed.
 from DC,  Feb 4, 2013

I am very impressed with this buffet. I've bought quite a bit of flatpack furniture, but this is by far the best quality and nicest looking wood that I have seen. We did have a small issue- the first buffet top that was sent to us was split 6". I contacted Overstock and I had a new top at my house within a week. They were incredibly easy to work with. Assembly is a bit of a bear like other reviewers have mentioned. I didn't have 5 hours to complete this at one time, and I also have a toddler that wouldn't handle me leaving pieces out. I broke down assembly into 3 evenings- unpacking everything, then prepping pieces with dowels/screws/assembly of small pieces like drawers, and then the final evening we put everything in the living room and completely assembly. I highly recommend this buffet.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Identical
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is amazing. Solid wood, accurately drilled holes for assembly, nice finish on visible parts.
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Spot on.
