Organize and store your china and table linens in this beautiful dining room buffet with removable glass panels. The rich brown cabinet, constructed out of strong rubberwood, features three drawers and two large interior compartments of various sizes....more
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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!

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!

We do not stock a matching dining table for this buffet, however, it is a simple design that could be complemented with a number of different tables. We have a large inventory of dining room tables on our site that would work beautifully. Just enter dining room tables in the Overstock search bar and all will be pulled up.
