I absolutely loved this design when I saw it and was quite excited when in came in the mail. However the material itself it relatively soft and a few of the shelves had minor damage- nothing I couldn't live with. But when it came to the spine that what a whole other matter. The packaging itself was slightly damaged so I wasn't too surprised when it showed pressed marks and a few nicks. I contacted customer service (which was excellent) and they immediately sent out another spine. When this one came in it had sporadic damage as well with absolutely no damage to the outside packaging leading me to believe all the damage has been done prior to shipping out of the warehouse. I'm not sure it is worth $XX so be wary if you are have high quality expectations for this product. I'm still debating if I should just give up and send everything back.
I bought this to display my son's large Lego creations in his room. Each shelf will hold a large creation such as a plane, large race car, etc. Now his work is protected and displayed for his enjoyment rather than sitting around in his room or on a low bookshelf where it can be damaged or reached by little brother. :-) I wish I could attach a photo to share how awesome it looks! In fact, I may decide to buy a second one!
The shelves themselves are adequate quality. No damage, and they have already lasted me about a year with no problems. As the previous review mentioned, though, the included screws/mounting equipment were essentially useless...definitely would not hold up these shelves. I had to go buy my own. Perhaps a bit overpriced, but overall, I like the shelves.

This is the first product I purchased from O that I am not happy with! Wood had small split on spine, the joints were difficult to connect. The wall screws were very short and cannot support the weight of what the photo shows. The anchor bolts are not suitable to fasten properly to the wall and the screws do do match longer screws if you want to attach longer crews. It was too much trouble to return after you put it together. Bottom-line: Junk.
