    • the keyboard drawer doesn't close.

      It took my husband a couple hrs to assemble and at the end the magnet didn't work to close the key board drawer. Disappointing. I would go for an antique table next time, which would be cheaper and adds character in the house.

    • Awesome desk

      I bought this desk desk because it is wide enough for my wife and I to both use it with our laptops at the same time. We have two chairs at the desk and it works great. Very sturdy and rich looking. Excellent desk that perfectly fits my needs

    • Great big writing desk

      This is the largest writing desk I could find and it works great. However, there are a lot of pieces and it took me many hours to put it together.

    • Nice Piece - Talisman 2 Drawer Desk

      Package arrived in two boxes and can be assembled by one person until it comes time for the desk top to mate with the frame. You will be better off with a helper. Allow the materials to acclimate in your home for a day or so to mitigate any warping, especially the thicker desk-top, This piece looks great when assembled but take care positioning the desk as it is a composite wood. Also be sure to take your time assembling the drawers and drawer rail assemblies. All in all I am happy with it and hopefully it will last a long time with care.

    • Great Desk! Great Price!

      Remodeling my home office with many highend finishes and fixtures. I had to be smart with my desk selection. I saw the photo and liked it. Recieved well packed. Same old cam lock assembly, seems ongoing but went together very well. Nice feel & color. Just what I was looking for. Fits my highend decor very nicely.Thanks Overtsock!

    • Writing desk Assembly

      The construction is sensible. The fit and finish of the parts is excellent. All parts labeled with stick on letters and they match the workbook drawings. Ignore the numbered parts on the outside of the box. They do not match the book. LOL Very well packaged too. The drawings in the manual are good. Use a magnifying glass on some photos as there could be a left-right issue. Really look at the details of the drawings. Hold the part next to the drawing and make sure the orientation is right. Even if you think you know! Do not put wood dowels in both parts of the drawer . Only one side. Luckily I got mine out before the glue dried. There is not enough glue. Get more glue. With the Superglue you can go to your local hobby shop and get a 5-15 second version Cyancryolate that is thicker to take up gaps. Do not let children or pets get near that glue. If you really want to be safe use yellow wood glue or better yet use PL premium construction adhesive and apply it sparingly with a popcicle stick. Wipe off the excess with a damp cloth. Use a dry cloth or paper towel for the PL premium glue. I glued all of the leg structure with PL premium glue on all of the joints but I did not use glue on the top surface in case I ever wanted to move the table easily. I just use the cam locks to detach the top of the table. Make sure to use all of the screws because they all are important. One thing I changed is the tracks on the bottom of the drawers. Don't put the screws that hold on the tracks of the drawers from the bottom as shown. The provided screws have no holding strength at all and will crack the composite. Put the two screws in the side of the track in the holes with the angled edge so the screw fits flush. I put together all the parts on a folding card table. Do not try to just sit on the floor to build this table. It will be a much harder job. (polite description) LOL I am 65, artist and former jet engine mechanic. When you are starting to assemble the leg structure, and you are ready to add the second end piece, ( PART C) carefully sit the entire structure on the floor and then finish that last part while standing up to do the work.

    • Great Desk!

      This is a great sturdy, high quality looking desk. I only have a couple of complaints: The assembly! Yikes! Took something like 3 hours. I couldn't believe all the pieces there were when I opened the box. Not to mention, the instructions are not very clear. I noticed I had extra screws left after I was done so I went back through the instructions trying to find where they were supposed to be used and saw that I should have put them in before I put the top on. Ooops. Also, the keyboard tray was not right. The wood seemed like it was too long on the ends, causing the flap/front of the tray not to stay up when you closed it (I think others have commented on this). I ended up removing the front flap (unscrewing the hinge), drilling new holes for the hinge and repositioning it so it would close all the way as it should. That was also a pain! All in all, you can't beat the price. Looks like an expensive executive desk.

    • I have a desk chair which I would like to continue using. I know that the distance to the bottom of the drawers from the floor is 23 inches, but I wanted to know what the distance to the bottom of the keyboard tray from the floor as well as the width of the front hinged part of the keyboard tray. It appears in the image that there is more leg room there for a chair to be pushed in from the picture, but I wanted to check
