    • Excellent quality for price

      "This desk did need some light sanding before painting/staining, but I expected that. My only negative feedback is that the desk had a very unpleasant (and unhygienic-smelling) odor that I had to address. Kind of gross, but I'm assuming that was just a one-time problem. Since I was sanding anyway, I wiped it thoroughly with Clorox wipes (which made the wood fibers swell slightly) and then sanded after it dried. Probably not the best way to deal with wood! But it did the trick. Again, overall, when I consider the pricing and construction, I do recommend this desk. "

    • Excellent Desk!

      I purchased this desk to use as a computer desk. I was so impressed with it when it arrived! Assembly was incredibly easy and simply involved screwing on each leg to the top. It took me longer to open the box than it did to put the desk together. The desk is made of a very sturdy wood and while i have not taken the time to finish it, it'd look great painted or with a stain. I am confident that this piece of furniture will last an extremely long time and I was incredibly happy with the price I paid for it. This was one of the best purchases I've ever made.

    • Lovely solid wood table

      Studied up on how to finish the table and chose a clear satin, wipe-on poly that gave a little amber color to the wood and brought out the grains. Result was spectacular. Shipping was precipitously quick; had to take a day off on short notice to wait for the delivery; was stuck home all day, and then the package was left at the door without a knock or a ring of the bell. Needed a neighbor's help to get the heavy, bulky package inside the house. Crazy business! Table had a few bangs and dents but barely noticeable after sanding. One leg didn't line up exactly right in the assembly process but end result was a sturdy, stable table. Overall, had an adventure and wound up with a five star treasure.

    • Fantastic Desk

      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!

    • Terrific Value

      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.

    • Great quality!

      I initially ordered the "espresso" colored desk in this style, but it arrived more as a cherry wood, so I opted for this unfinished model. I sanded (really didn't need to), found a gel stain (para wood doesn't take regular oil based stains well) and finished with a matte polyurethane seal. The result is a stunning. Now a true espresso! Am very happy with this purchase and highly recommend.
