Very happy with this sewing cabinet. Especially like all of the storage drawers and the mobility of the cabinet on rollers.
It is very easy to open it up completely and the handles add a very attractive element to the overall design. Really like
the fact that it folds up to a small area so it fits great in my laundry/sewing area. Looks really nice with all of my white
cabinets and I can put my sewing basket on top when it is folded up completely so I have easy access to all that I need.
Was somewhat time consuming to put together due to all of the gluing but it was well worth it. Directions were easy to

I ordered this because getting a sewing table / center shipped to Hawaii is problematic. No one wants to ship there, or, the fees exceeds the cost of the item. This was one of a very few products that could be shipped, even then the cost of shipping approached the cost of the item.
However, I digress, the unit itself is well engineered .. it comes in a flat-pack box and you're expected to assemble it. I took about 20min to inventory all of the parts and fasteners (using a pretty good guide) and then about another 1.5hrs to assemble. It's pretty straightforward except in two areas:
1. The drawers have to be assembled with glue. Although easy to assemble, I wonder about the long-term reliability of glued drawers; I would have hoped for some kind of secondary fasteners or biscuits.
2. The hinge mechanism for the section of the cart that can be retracted or deployed is okay but I also wonder how many times you can deploy and retract before the screws work themselves loose. I think that machine screws into inserts would have been better than wood screws. Also, the diagram for assembly of the hinged mechanism was a little confusing; I first screwed it together backwards, but that was easily corrected. Hint: Don't insert the screws completely until you're sure everything is oriented properly. And, have a friend or someone handy to help you when connecting the movable section. I didn't, and had to jury rig supports to hold everything steady while I installed the screws.
However, for the price, it's a good unit. It would have been a great unit had I not had to pay $120 for shipping.
This desk is perfect for LIGHT sewing or craft projects. It fits nicely into corner when folded closed. Instructions are easy to follow and assembly is fast. You should however, buy your own bottle of wood glue. It takes more than is provided.
This is lower quality than other furniture pieces I have purchased from overstock but a very good value for the money. My son was able to assemble it without too much trouble though he did remark about all the gluing. Once assmbled, it looks nice. The bottom drawer would not fit (no matter what drawer was used) so we sanded one until it worked. I thought it looked fine even without the bottom drawer in place because the drawer cavity is completely finished in white and it just looked like a shelf. The drawers are light weight particle board on a small runner (all assembled with glue) so will probably not hold up to anything but light use. I rarely sew or craft but this cabinet was to hold my sewing machine and supplies in a guest room which it will do nicely. It was packed well and had no damage. The wheels are a great feature!
