I ordered this end table and matching 3 drawer coffee table. Both arrived in a very timely manner. Assembly was not too complicated although it called for a 4mm allen wrench (not included) instead of an American size, I found that a large phillips head screwdriver worked better for the cam locks. It would have been very helpful if they would explain in the instructions which hole to use on the cabinet side drawer glide for placement. After trial and error, I figured it out. When it came to putting together the coffee table with its' 3 drawers, I knew which holes to use. This is a very sturdy and well built piece of furniture which will last forever. I especially like that it is solid wood (except for the drawer side and back panels)
I was a furniture design engineer and supervtsor for 40 years till far East beat us on union labor and corporate tax cost .... 10 years ago this is the price I would have sent this out of the factory... you would have paid on sale $250 delivered and assembled off a show room floor ....for the money ....its a bargain

I purchased two end tables and matching coffee table. Furniture is heavy and sturdy. It takes a VERY long time to assemble and the diagrams are not as clear as they could be. The biggest negative is that the surface is very difficult to clean/polish. I have tried various products. Either surface becomes dull or streaked. I would not recommend this product
This table matches my new dark brown leather couch almost exactly and fits nicely with the style. The delivery was quick; I ordered on Tues and received it the following Monday, which was sooner than stated initially. It took us about 1.5 hours to put it together. The instructions were fairly straight forward. be sure to have several sizes of screw drivers handy. The stain is not really top quality, but overall, for the money, this piece is a very good buy.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? THe actual is just a bit lighter, but very close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Solid, heavy.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
Although I was able to put this together myself in about 90 minutes, the drawer slides proved a mystery until I figured it out (drawings not helpful).
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. high quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? should warn of necessity for total assembly
I rated this piece a three only due to the time-consuming nature of assembly. There is a lot of hardware required for assembly. Picture Instructions were understandable and everything was labelled. So it is not difficult to interpret. However, the end result is nice looking.
The instructions are pretty explanitory, the drawer brackets came bent slightly which didn't make a difference. Not all parts come predrilled and takes a little patience for the end result. Wife and I really enjoy the way they look in the living room.
They include a tube of super glue for the assembly. Super glue. I don't really have to go on but I am so disappointed, I must! Absolutely the most difficult piece of furniture to assemble. Do not purchase unless you are skilled on assembly. Highly suggest you hire someone to assemble! You will hate this table when you are done. I bought two and I am giving them to my daughter for her college apartment. Yes, it is a hunk of wood, but the finish scratches pretty easily, especially when it takes you 3 hours to assemble. I wish I could turn back time and pay a little more for. REAL end table and one that comes assembled. I will never buy this brand again - hint, you even have to put the drawer together, and attach the runners for the drawers. I have never bought from that box store that is blue & yellow and starts with the letter I, because of all the jokes about assembly, and yet I feel like I just did!
