This desk was a nightmare to assemble. The laminates are cheap and started to peel away after six months.Read More
Very nice, easy to assemble.Read More
The desk "does the job well" for what we wanted. It looks good and is sturdy. It is heavy and, while it isn't a top quality piece, it does pretty well at looking the part.Read More
Desk is all hardwood. Even the drawer bottoms. To maximize the quality, take the time and effort to properly assemble. The directions make no mention of glue but you'll get a truly solid desk if you add glue to the dowel fittings and anywhere the wood joins together. Especially the drawers. Glue where the sides meet and the groove the bottom slides in. Otherwise I can predict the drawers will lose their sqareness and stick. I generously glued and wiped clean. The next day the desk was solid as if carved from a tree trunk. Heavy too. The design is practical and makes great use of the space used. Computer tower and keyboard tucked away yet easy to access. The keyboard drawer hangs slightly low so you'll need a chair that will lower an extra inch or two. The finish is excellent. Rich brown with a tint of cherry and gold. A fine desk for the price.Read More
The desk arrived all scratched and a corner of it had fallen off. There were assembly pieces missing such as screws. In addition, when I was assembling the desk, the wood would break when I screwed in the screws (especially true on the corner pieces). I wish I had read the reviews prior to ordering the desk and Overstock does not allow this product to be returned.Read More
I really only have two complaints concerning this desk: I'd purchased it thinking I could use the large drawer for filing space, but wasn't paying enough attention to its actual size... and there are *very* visible gouges in the veneer of the desktop itself, not to mention a few dings in the rest of the desk. I know the desktop came out of the box that way, but the other dings could very well be my fault.HAVE A DRILL HANDY! There are about a zillion little screws, and it takes a good two to three hours to assemble the desk, but once it's together it's such a great product, especially for the price. Just remember to take your time and read the instructions CAREFULLY. The diagrams aren't as detailed as one might prefer, so be careful that you don't put the cabinet bottom on backwards (like I did, wups). Overall, I recommend this piece, the color is beautiful and the quality is fantastic for the price.Read More
The desk is beautiful and went together easily. HOWEVER. when it was delivered, the box was broken open and some pieces suffered minor damage. Old English will fix the scratches. fortunately all the pieces were there. Overall we are satisfied but think the way it is delivered should be reviewed.Read More
I should have read through all of the reviews before buying this desk. It came scratched, banged up (some parts were broken, but we nailed them back together), screws were missing (went and bought more), and there were so many pieces with awful instructions. It took us a total of 10 hours to put it together over 3 days. The drawers are really small and don't slide in/out very easily, so don't buy if you need lots of storage. We're keeping it as a temp desk in our office and will put it in a kids room later. You're better off paying a bit more for better quality!Read More
Clearly, the person who wrote these assembly instructions will not be winning the Technical Writer of the Year award anytime soon...but the instructions weren't the nightmare I feared they would be after reading many of these reviews. I recommend having a cordless drill on hand because you will most definitely need to create a few additional holes. The parts are clearly labeled but the illustrations leave a lot to be desired. That said, I was able to single-handedly assemble this desk in just about 5 hours. I think anyone who has assembled ***** furniture should be able to handle this job with some patience (and a glass or two of wine). As others have said, the desk drawers stick a little but I expect with a little WD-40 and continued use that should hopefully go away. The desk itself is beautifulsolid, sturdy, high-quality wood. There were no chips or damaged parts on mine. I'm deducting one star only because of the less than stellar assembly instructions.Read More
