With its classic design and warm, comforting finish, this space-saving Mission-style computer desk complements any decor scheme. Crafted from solid oak, the desk features two shelves and a keyboard tray and fits easily into a corner to save space....more
This desk has perfect mission styling and was super easy to assemble. Although it is not 100% solid wood, (has some veneers) it seems very well manufactured.
The only thing not mentioned in the product description is that there is an opening for mouse and monitor wires in the middle of the desk top. Because of this, if you use the hole instead of hanging the wires off the back, and have a moitor that is not an LCD, it causes you to place the monitor smack in the middle of the desk top, about 8" from the edge of the desk. Even with a LCD, there is only about 12" working space from the front edge of the desk. It leaves a lot of wasted space behind the monitor.
Overall though, it's a very high quality desk for the price.
The mission style Oak corner desk is attractive but not functional. Two main problems are: first, the keyboard tray does not pull out far enough to be able to access all keys on even a standard size no-frills keyboard - numbers and function keys are not accessable - at all - without removing the keyboard from the keyboard tray. And, an ergonomically designed key board will not fit on the top surface along with a "now" typical 18" - 20" flat monitor --- defintely does not work to have a keyboard and laptom on the top surface. Second, there is no space under the computer for a tower, or a printer and your feet - one of the three but not two. I would not have purchased this item had I seen it in person!
I read the other reviews before ordering this, thinking I could handle any assembly issues that were previously mentioned. To my surprise, everything worked out perfectly, with no issues at all. I could see where someone might think some of the holes did not line up, but that is because you have to flex the frame a little to get it in line and square, nothing more than that.
This is a beautiful piece of furniture and easily worth twice the price. In fact, I recently saw it in a catalog for $399.
I am thinking of ordering another because the first one ended up in my living room, not my guest room where I had planned it to go.
I bought this desk almost three years ago. I use it every day, sometimes for many hours a day. It has held up beautifully and is a perfect fit for my small home office. It was relatively easy to assemble and has stayed tight and sturdy with no adjustments. The bottom shelves hold my standard CPU, a router and a surge protector with no problem. As with any wood finish, take care.

Nice looking desk (just like the photo) that's absolutely perfect for an all-in-one computer like an ****! I have a 27" **** with external speakers and a subwoofer, and this desk is perfect for it. The hideaway keyboard drawer makes it look even nicer. Plus, it only took less than an hour to put together! I totally recommend this desk for anyone with a similar setup...you'll be thrilled with it too.
Pros: Clean classic style. fairly easy to assemble, once you understand which connector goes into which socket. Keyboard "drawer" is good size for standard keyboard, locks into place sturdily. Size is good, plendy of surface for 21-1/2" monitor, speakers, mouse, pencil holder, ipod dock, mouse, papers... monitor fits nicely across back corner, giving about 3' distance between opertor and screen. Hole for cords is NOT in the middle of the desktop, but closer to bhe back corner. Assembled desk does not wobble.
Cons: Not all dowel holes the right size, not all holes lined up accurately. Instructions not very clear. Nearly 3 hours to assemble. Comination of composite and real wood. Worst aggravation: on mine, the center back leg was cut with a large knot in the center of the leg, and one of the misaligned hole issues caused the leg to crack right around the knot.
