I purchased 3 of these sliding door cabinets (dark brown color)--one with wooden doors & 2 with the acrylic doors--to stack. These were VERY easy to assemble, with no missing parts, and simple to understand instructions. I never can understand when people rate things less bc they didn't read the description correctly, i.e., it's too small, or the doors aren't real glass, etc. It's all there in the description, so no surprises and I knew exactly what to expect!! What was really helpful were the reviews that described the inadequate pegs to rest the shelves on. I was able to fix that by purchasing spoon shaped pegs from the local hardware store, that would allow the shelves to rest on a flat peg surface rather than the rounded peg. Voila! The shelves don't move, and the pegs cost $1.80 for 12. As for the open sides, that is a non-issue since I am using these units as a pantry in my kitchen, so I'm not worried about my soup cans and grocery staples gathering dust. But I figured an easy way to fix that, if I wanted to, is to get plexiglass cut to size for above and below the shelves and stick them with craft glue dots. Again, a fairly easy and economic solution, which I don't mind absorbing bc I was able to get these cabinets for a great price! The cabinets look very attractive in my kitchen and have received many compliments on them!
This is a great buffet for your dining room or a hutch if you add the glass door stackable display case to it. It is very easy to move - especially with a couple sliders underneath. Looks like it would cost 2-3x what it actually does - great value!
Assembly is easy. Problems occur when you stack the other components on top to make the "cabinet." I got this piece and the glass one to go on top. The glass one causes so much pressure on the one below, the sliding doors are hard to slide. There is 0 clearance between the shelf and the inner sliding door. This also makes it rough and difficult to slide. I am assuming with age this rubbing will wear out the shelf face and inner cabinet sliding door.
Size wise it is perfect, as it fits into a marrow space well without causing an obstruction. It is well construction and stable once assembled. We have just the one unit (no additional stacks). The top could have been a better surface (veneer hopefully) which would have given it a nice touch. That said it has a clean smooth finish, The bottom corner support blocks (legs) are just blocks and could have had some shape to them to provide a better aesthetic look. The side should really be closed up to avoid dust settling in. Overall a decent buy that's a perfect fit for us.
This is beautiful to look at and holds alot off things. I stacked mine three high, nothing heavy though. It is impossible to close contents off from dust, or view from the sides. The sides are open, with no panel. There isnt even enough room to cut and finish a thin piece of wood because of how the shelf fits in. This disappointed me, but its still a keeper.
