I ordered this and returned it immediately. The wooden stand is mostly nice, but mine came with a defect in the paper that covers the perimeter where the glove rests (this paper has degree markings on it, I believe). The globe itself is covered in plexiglass (or some other plastic) and mine came with cracks and similar defects. The covering containing the continents and oceans is poorly laid out - the overlap is very far from perfect and it gave the globe a cheap appearance. I cannot recommend this.
The wood portions of this product are okay; It looks okay - not the greatest, not the worst. The legs are not the same length and therefore the product wobbles when placed on a flat surface. You can tighten and loosen the legs to make them a little longer/shorter, but then the base of the globe is unstable. The globe itself is not a nice quality at all. It appears as though the face of the globe is made from stickers that were poorly aligned when assembled. Nothing matches up; the countries are split apart, the words don't match up, some of the names of regions/oceans are only partially spelled out because the adjacent sticker covers the rest of the name. If you look at this globe up close it is a total disaster. If you look at it from afar it is okay. This was purchased for an office suite. If I had purchased it for myself personally, I would return it.
