  • 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.

    • 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.

  • Much harder to assemble than expected

    I received two of these tables, and there are no predrilled holes to allow installation of the extra bottom shelf. The instructions included a list of all necessary tools and part; they didn't mention a drill. Am I really expected to locate a drill and a measuring tape, measure where to drill the holes, drill holes in each leg and in each corner of the shelf, and then install the brackets? Ready to assemble furniture like this is supposed to have pre-drilled holes for mounting hardware. It's going to be quite hard to measure accurately to ensure the shelf is level. A real pain.

    This unfinished desk was easy to stain and apply polyurethane and to assemble. It has a surprisingly spacious center drawer. The size is good for a small office space. The price for this product is very good.

  • Best deal on a solid wood desk around!

    We were so impressed with this desk when we first purchased it six months or so ago that we've since purchased 5 more of them for our kids' rooms and other areas of the house. The wood is beautiful, whether coated with a light spray on varnish or fully stained (especially beautiful when stained as it really brings out the individual pieces of wood and their character. Buy it while they have it, because they ran out after our first purchase and we had to wait about 3 months before we could get it again!

  • Great value!

    Desk is everything it says it is. Easy to assemble, nice, simple design. Delivered on time. It works well in my office/guest room.

  • Exactly what I wanted.

    This desk was so easy to put together! It took about twenty minutes, and that includes getting rid of the packaging. It's got a very light finish that I will stain. It was a birthday present for my teenage son and he appreciates it. A good purchase.
