A surprisingly nice desk. Quality was better than I expected. Very nice finish. Looks "rich". Very stable. Assembly was very simple, just attach each leg with two bolts. I am very pleased with the desk... and I am very particular!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Pretty close.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Ok... no issues.
Solid wood and heavy. Completely assembled and only requires you to attach the 4 legs. Arrive with extra protection on both ends of the box. No damage, to the corners, or any other parts as some others have mentioned. The drawer is very large, (where the legs are stored for shipping),and is almost full depth of the laptop desk.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close. It may be a little darker.

I was pleasantly surprised. The desk is better than I expected. It arrived in perfect condition. Assembly was a snap. Just had to bolt on the legs. The drawer was already together! The hardest part was disposing of the shipping carton.

The desk is solid wood, heavy and easy to put together. Love the look of it and its got a nice big pull out drawer that is close to the same length as the desk. You can put your keyboard in it plus storage. Didn't like that shipping was by Fedex, my daughter had a lot of problems getting the desk from them.
Much nicer quality than expected. Not that I thought it would be bad but, at the price point, I didn't think the desk would be as sturdy or as nice a wood as it was.
Easy to assemble as you only have to attach the legs with two bolts each. Drawer is assembled, large and front folds down to make a keyboard tray if needed.
I'm using this as a desk in my home office. This is a very nice, sturdy piece of furniture, solid and well built. It is heavy...made of real wood, not particle board. It is slightly darker than shown in the picture, but it blends well with the other pieces in the room. It could easily pass for an older piece of furniture due to its style.
The legs were very easy to install. No tools needed...everything was supplied.
The drawer has a drop down front and the hinges are sturdy, not flimsy at all. I won't be using this feature, but it is a nice thing if you need it.
Shipping was quick and I didn't have any issues with the packaging that a few reviews had mentioned. There was not a mark on any of the pieces. I would recommend this to anyone needing a nice desk and would not be afraid to order this again.
I love it!
I've had this desk now for over 2 years, bought from Overstock. Just realized I never write a review, but in the case of this product it works out for the best as if I had written it right away it would have been given 3 stars.
Overall: As others have mentioned, this desk is constructed good, heavy and solid. I have no fear placing multiple heavy boxes on it.
Arrival condition: Desk arrived with a 2" dent along the top edge from travel and a 4" one along the back, The box probably has not changed in 2 years, so beware, if you order this, when it arrives check it carefully to be sure if there are any marks, they are ones you can live with. I needed the desk for a home office asap, so the blemishes didn't matter to me.
Assembly: Easy. The hardware that comes with the table to hold it together is amazingly solid. I was expecting wooden pegs like furniture you find at Ikey. Not here.
The one thing that brings this down to 4 stars for me was the hinges on the keyboard tray were poorly installed. The keyboard tray (all except for the front panel) is made of fiberboard. It looks as though when the location for the hinge was carved out the machine took a much larger chunk of the fiberboard away than it should have. Instead of starting over with a new board this one was given a patch job that caused the hinge to site raised at an odd angle that did not allow the front door of the keyboard tray to close. Armed with a screwdriver, elmers wood glue and a whole lot of patience I was able to reconstruct the fiberboard under the hinge properly. I would have returned the item, except I needed it desperately and it (and it's cousins) was the only product on the market with a keyboard tray wide enough for my needs.
Overall, this desk has held up for 2 years. I expect to get at least 15 years of use out of this desk, although I am careful not to put pressure on the keyboard tray, or I may need more than just a bottle of glue to fix it next time.
The drawer on the desk seems to be stuck. It only pulls out about 1/2 way. The left side is fine. The right side seems to be jammed. We can't find the cause. How far out should the drawer pull? How do we fix it?cyclers on Jun 24, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello cyclers, The drawer should extend 17 inches. If it is not extending enough there may be a screw on the right side of the glide that is not fully set into place. This screw could be blocking the glide from sliding open which would cause a jam of sorts. Try to remove the drawer (there will be a small plastic piece on each glide that looks similar to a large tooth of a comb, one will need to be pushed up, the other side will push down) inspect the glide as best they can to see if any screws seem out further than others. If the drawer still will not function properly we can send new drawer glides to replace the defected ones they received. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 25, 2014
What is the wire retaining grommet used for?
What kind of wood is the desk made from?
What is the maximum weight capacity?robgreer on Feb 28, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I apologize that this information was not listed on our site. I have sent a request to our warehouse to provide an answer. I expect to hear back within 1-2 business days. I am sorry for the delay.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 2, 2012
This piece has a drop down lid for a laptop/keyboard and the grommet goes out from the back of the drawer ; the wood on this piece is Poplar/Cherry veneers. As far as the weight bearing capacity; it has not yet been tested; would not suggest anything real heavy like a large TV; not made for that; any weight should be distributed evenly along the top.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 2, 2012
