I thought the assembly of this product would be like another bookshelf by the same maker. It was until I had to drill the holes to place the bracket supports and also discovered the phillips screws with a round head actually requires a special screwdriver or drill bit. I assembled the bookshelf without the special screw driver/drill bit. (Two holes were required for the bracket supports and only one hole was pre-drilled.) Insert all the Cam Lock Pins in both side rails first, then place shelves one at a time, and last insert and tighten Cam Locks as each shelf is placed.
The product is made from all pine wood and is heavy. It does require the tipping restraint if not weighed down on the lower shelves with heavy books or heavy weighted knickknacks or if there are small children in the house. I have heavy enough books for the lower shelves and no small children.
The top shelf is ideal for pictures or knickknacks. The bottom two shelves fit extra tall books. As the shelves progress upward, the shelf space becomes shorter. I wish that the measurements for the shelves were included in the description on the site. Here are mine: bottom shelf, 14.75; next shelf, 13; middle shelf, 11.75; next shelf, 10.125; top shelf has no limit. (All in inches.)

I had no problems with he pacaging. No issueswith scratching like other reveiws. I put it together in a half an hour with a 4 year old and an 18 month old helping. You would have to be an idiot to complain about the assembly of the shelf.

This is a nice bookshelf. When assembling there are little metal Ls with two holes and a bunch of wood screws that are supposed to secure the shelves to the frame. I found it impossible to screw in the wood screws so I left these off. It's still stable without them.

Not easy to assemble, the instuctions are photographs and part numbers. Once it was assembled it was wobbly. If you have to use screws and L-brackets to assemble it, that is not a good sign. Lovely design and real wood but it's pine, I think. Thank God it was going next to a wall and had lots of books on it; one good nudge and that would be the end of it.
Shelf is attractive and doesn't have the heavy appearance of bookshelves due to the open shelves and ladder, stepped-back arrangement of shelves. It also holds a lot as far as volume and, apparently so far, weight. The structure itself is light and can be moved easily. It took about an hour to put together - no awkward pieces or handling and was easy to do on my own. The downside - and it is significant - is that the shelf wobbles from side to side and does not have a solid feel. I have not yet installed the wall restraint, and that may help, but the structure on its own is not sturdy and I would not buy it again. (Actually intend to stop purchasing furniture that comes in pieces overall).
Upon arrival it was package good. There were no scratches and the color is true to the picture. The assembly was pretty simple. Goes together faster if there are two people. Comes with a anchor to prevent tipping, but you do not need it if you do not have small kids. Very nice and sturdy.and holds alot of stuff .I looked around for about 3 months before this purchase great value and quality.

i would say it could sit on it's own if you don't have small kids that would climb on it as it kind of looks like a ladderclckist3 on Feb 18, 2014
