    • Nicely Sized

      I needed a desk for my office that had a good amount of surface space and not much bulk. This was perfect. I stained it a dark walnut and put several coats of poly on it. It looks much more expensive than the cost and gives me lots of room on top to organize my overload of paperwork.

    • Writing Desk is well made

      I purchased this writing desk for my new office until my other office desk from my previous home is delivered to my new house. It is very study and large enough to spread out paperwork and also your computer monitor. For the price, you could not get a better desk and I'm enjoying the desk drawer for misc pens/stapler, etc. It can also be painted if need be.

    • Exceeded my expectations

      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.

    • 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.
