What a fabulous desk! Sleek and sturdy, raw wood. Couldn't beat the price! Easy to put together, just had to put the legs on. I'm a photographer and I needed something simple with ample top space and it serves me great. If you don't need bells and whistles like drawers (it has one, that's plenty for me) or cabinets or a hutch, this is a piece for you! The toughest thing to figure out with this desk is whether or not to stain it. The raw wood look is gorgeous with visible knots and grain, but would probably take a stain beautifully! It's clutter resistant too. You will keep it cleaned off as much as possible to always see it! I highly recommend this desk!

I'm thrilled with my new writer's desk. There is nothing to complain about and much to rave about. I did a lot of comparison shopping before making this purchase so I am in an informed enough position to appreciate the supreme value of this desk. MATERIAL: The fact that it is solid wood (rubber wood) alone puts it shoulders above anything else in the market under $200 - no laminates to peel off and no off gassing glue holding a compressed mass of wood shavings together. And it's beautiful wood - nicely dense and powdery smooth, its natural colour so pleasing I am considering changing my mind about staining or painting it. The fact I paid only $$$ for this made it a steal. CONSTRUCTION: also solid - all parts fit together perfectly. This desk ain't wobbling! And the assembly was dead easy. I've only one hand so a girlfriend did this for me in half an hour, I think. The drawer is on runners (not top of the line but adequate) so it glides out easily. It fits snugly when closed. I've not tested it weighted with contents yet. SIZE: A perfect compromise between generosity of work space and the need to conserve limited floor space. I can spread out a big binder, my mac notebook, a table lamp, snack bowl, knick knacks, and not feel cramped. DELIVERY: Was surprised at how quickly it arrived - 2 or 3 days I think. And at under $3 for S&H I not only saved gas money but having to carry the desk to and from the car. Sweet.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very, very close. The actual desk color was nicer then the photo having slightly less grey and a kind of subtle sheen of white-blond wood. .
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good. Solid wood sanded beautifully smooth. Easy assembly and all parts fit perfectly together. Drawer works well.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Did not disappoint.

I love this desk. It is nicer than the picture and very sturdy. Best of all – it was so easy to assemble that I was able to do so myself (and if I can anyone should be able too!). The instructions were very easy to follow and all the parts were packaged well. It is a little bit heavy so you may require some help lifting (about 50#?). The drawer slides very nicely and the finish is neutral – just what I wanted.
After looking at other websites and furniture stores for an affordable writing desk I settled on this one. It's exactly what I wanted! The size affords a good work surface, and the single drawer offers a place to put your pens, paper, stapler, paper clips, etc. Easy to assemble and set up. It's unfinished which allows you to customize it to your taste & decor. I highly recommend this desk!
The package arrived via *** and the shipping container was ripped and the contents could be seen; suggest Overstock provide a better shipping container.The table was not damaged and others have mentioned, it was easy to assemble, all of the parts were counted for, and everything fit. The over all quality was very good and the finished table was exactly what I wanted for the space and use I envisioned.
This desk is a great value and very sturdy. I finished it with polyurethane and it looks great. Packaging could be a little better. The original shipment had been damaged in transit, however, a replacement was sent immediately with no issues.
I was pleasantly surprised by the sturdy construction of this desk. It was easy to put together but it does not feel cheap or pieced together. I love that it is unfinished because I can stain it to match my space. I have not stained it yet but only because I can't decide what color I want!
I purchased this desk for a small home office. It was easy enough to put together (about 30 mins) and packaged well for delivery. The table is real wood with the exception of parts of the drawer. It's good quality. I stained it a gray color and it took the stain easily. I would buy this again. No complaints.
