Solid hardwood frame provides contemporary style without sacrificing durability
Set includes: One (1) desk/shelf
Material: Solid rubberwood frame/oak veneer desk top
Disappointed - it can be quite difficult to ascertain the construction materials of furniture sold online, and despite my best efforts to avoid MDF, I was fooled by this product's description touting a 'solid rubberwood frame with veneers" but no mention of MDF. There are a few pieces of actual wood, though with some odd seams in them. At least 85% of this product by weight, however, is manufactured wood. It weighs a ton and the solid wood parts that are attached to the MDF don't seem particularly sturdy. I can't comment on assembly as I have put it back in the box for return.
This does just what I wanted. I use it as a sewing table, b/c the storage underneath is perfect. I LOVE it and my boyfriend is totally jealous of it. He got a free table and offered it to me. I told him I was waiting to get this thing, showed him, and he was like, "yeah, it's way better." and it was when I got it too. I was able to put it together myself, although a couple parts were tricky. I didn't find the instructions difficult. It looks great, my only complaint is sometimes when I slide out the shelf, the stand piece slides a little too - and scrapes the hardwood. I'm getting a sanding block and some holders this weekend so this doesn't happen any more. Other than that, I love it.
Please note, because it has to have a little leeway when you pivot the shelf, you can't put it flush in a corner. It has to have a little extra room.
I bought this desk in black for my small home office. I was looking for something that was light and airy but also solid since it's such a small room. This fit the bill in terms of size, style and function. I love how it folds in on itself - perfect since my office is tiny and when we have guests over, the futon will be pulled out and the desk can fold against the wall.
Assembly was fairly easy - until the last step to assemble the swivel part. A couple of the screws were just a hair too long and poked through the top of the desk. I was able to hammer down the point and touch up with some furniture paint, but just something to be aware of - don't drill too deep! Also, the swivel took a few attempts before I was able to get the pieces to feel securely tightened. Once in place, I am happy with the final product.
I really like the functionality of this desk. I have a small condo and the desk works perfect, it has a modern edge to it but functional. There was only one screw that made it difficult to put together, it was the main one too, but we got together!
This is a really cool desk if you need something that does not take up too much space. It is perfect in my small office. The only reason it does not get a 5 is because of the assembly. The design of the assembly process was very poorly done. The kit does not provide all of what you need. Some of the screws are the wrong length and you will need to buy different ones. Assemble with caution and pay VERY close attention...and buy new screws. If you do that you will be happy with the result.
The desk is nice and looks just as good and classic as the picture. It is nice to have a piece that can be discrete as a bookshelf when not in use. The issues I had with the piece was that it had one part broken when it arrived, but luckily was where a lip screwed into the top, so we were able to glue it on and did not affect functionality. the second was that it had a few small scratches upon arrival and when we were assembling, a small amount of the color came of on the edges; but all were small enough to correct with a stain pen, so we decided not to go through the hassle of returning. The last is that when swinging out the bottom to change into the "L" shaped desk, you have to hold the top or the whole piece moves. Again, it is a very nice piece and fits nicely in my formal living room as a "bookshelf" when I am not using it. I have it on a wall that is a side view when looking in the room. that is nice because the edge of the middle shelf hides my keyboard, mouse, and headset when not working.
This desk didn't come with any assembly instructions in the box and it isn't shown on the manufacturers site at all. Normally I'd be able to figure it out, but none of the holes are appropriate sizes for the screws and half the holes don't go all the way through. Style wise and finish I like it, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.

Also you indicated below an overall L of desk with ext is 74", is that when put into a horizontal position instead of an "L"? If so, what does the shelf add to the Length of the desk when put into the L position - 47 + ?. Basically I am looking for the over L/Width when desk is the L position.
