This beautiful work desk will surely be a great addition to any home or office. The desk features a pull out keyboard drawer for easy typing. It also has a built-in organizer to insure that you can always find items you need quickly....more
It took a while to get my forgetful nephew to put this one together ("no more furniture Aunt E--, just say no!) and he complained while he did it ("the directions stink, the whachacallits don't fit the holes!) but he got the job done in a few hours and I am very happy with the results. He inherited the family knack for handiness, which I did not, so I put up with his mouth. Just a few points. If you place your monitor on the top shelf to free up the desk space, which works and looks best, you'll need a chair with some height (or a cushion) and possibly a good pair of magnifying lenses. You do, of course, have the option of bringing the monitor down and putting your keyboard in the drawer, which otherwise functions as--a drawer! Plus, the cubbies and drawers of the back superstructure are quite shallow; don't expect to cram them with anything but pens and post-its. But there's plenty of space beneath for your tower and on the sides for your speakers. You might get a printer underneath as well, but it would be a little cramped. (Aside: I often wonder why "computer desks" are hardly ever shown with the appropriate space for the tower, which is after all an essential computer part.) As you see, my nephew and I do share a kvetching gene. HOWEVER, this is a beautiful piece of furniture and meets my needs.

I think the wood stain is a little darker than it appears in the picture, but otherwise, this charming desk is just what I wanted for my study. The keyboard drawer is a little stiff pulling in and out (my son thought he had broken it the first time he pulled hard on it and the front pulled down, on its hinges!). The drawers and cubbies on the hutch are small, maybe 4 inches wide, each, but charming. And the writing surface is sufficient for me to spread out books and papers while working on my laptop, which sits on the drawer. The pieces are heavy enough (especially the desktop) to make a second pair of hands recommended in assembly, but I was able to put this together myself, impressing both my spouse and me with the task! Pre-drilled holes and effective instructions made all the difference.
The reviews I had read on the desk said it was easy to assemble. Not for a 74 year old who is challenged by detailed directions. But it is up, stable, and quite useul.
Be advised, however, if you are asked to write a review you will be equally challenged to complete the darn thing
