Ok, you want to know the truth? There is no way an average built woman can assemble this whole thing herself. I can lift pretty heavy things, but you have to be realistic: at some point, sooner or later, you will need an extra pair of hands. Especially if you don't want to scratch or damage anything.This station looks great for the amount of money paid. You won't find a better value! It doesn't mean that it is flawless though: the finish on our hatch is a little bit different than on our main desk - it definitely looks a little bit dull and has some weird subtle smudges, which are impossible to remove ( I tried everything starting from plain water & ending with Method all purpose cleaner) If you have OCD, it will drive you crazy :) But maybe we just got unlucky and everybody else didn't have that problem w smudges on a hutch, which is not a huge deal after all.The real problem we experienced was low quality cam connector screws - every 2d one would break & my husband was handling them as if they were made from glass. At the end, Overstock promptly sent us a replacement from their warehouse - a bunch of new cam connectors.Our friends who see this workstation always compliment on how great it looks, so I would recommend it in a heartbeat. You just have to realize that for that amount of $$ you are likely to have some minor problems, but hopefully Overstock will help to resolve them.

This is probably an ok purchase for a home office. I definitely would not recommend it for a commercial office setting. The desktops are thin and wobble with any pressure or weight. I suspect they will sag pretty badly within a year or so. Other office furniture I have purchased is about 50% thicker. When I read the description, I was fooled by the "commercial finish" reference, and the "1" thick top. I would definitely recommend spending an extra couple hundred dollars to get a better quality product. For those of you who read reviews and always attribute the problems to idiots who cannot put something together correctly, I have more than 15 years experience in construction, ranging from furniture to houses. The finish is closer to red and black, than mahogany. The picture online is not even close. The desk is much darker. Also, mine came without the pedestal/credenza - it wasn't within the box labeled "Hutch" much to my dismay. The instructions are aweful. It wasn't a problem for me, but for someone who has never put together box furniture, it may be frustrating.

Overall the product is an excellent price for the money and of good quality. Negatives: The instructions were extremely poor and misleading. Many holes were undrilled in the hutch and bow front desk. Took over 10 hours to build. The mahogany color is more of a burgundy color and rich. Not like the color in the overstock.com picture. I would still recommend this product but wasn't happy that it took so long to build and cost me over $500 in labor.

Well, the pieces of the Mahogany desk are slightly different than the picture. The top is actually the same color as the side panels, and the privacy panel is silver. The instructions are clear, but there are four screws to attach the return and extension that are extremely difficult to tighten, since they are blocked by the side panels. I ended up using a screwdriver bit inside a socket. Other than that, the build seems average. Sturdy, but the desk top doesn't meet the return and extension tops perfectly flush, so there's a bit of a ridge between them. I didn't install the center drawer, as it would be right on top of my legs.

First let me start off by saying there are no directions, only picture diagram. With that being said the diagram is numbered for each part. There are no extra parts left, all parts will be used. Now for the PROS: great packaging, very fast shipping, worth the price, leg rollers have locks, accommodates large laptop, each part labeled and numbered, very durable and sturdy, completely assessable for mouse and other papers, table desktop moves and rotates to different positions. You will see how having a large computer desk is useless and unnecessary. This one is slender and will fit in any corner. Now for the CONS: The color is not dark cherry wood, it is black mahogany. Now for Suggestion: If you don't choose to use for computer laptop, this will work great as a bedside table. Yes I do recommend to all.

Ordered desk 6/10, it shipped 6/11, and arrived 6/15 (we did have to pick up the 5 boxes....719 pounds....from the freight company as they could not get an 18 wheeler truck into our subdivision). We were able to put the desk & credenza together in 2 hours. I'm sure it will take longer for the hutch with the doors, we will work on that tonight! As mentioned in other reviews the desk is darker than the photo. It is a deep mahogany finish with a redish tint. Very heavy, very sturdy desk. The bridge can go on either side of the desk, and the fully assembled drawer unit can be placed under the desk or credenza where ever you would like it. The desk is a good height for using the keyboard and has nice soft, comfortable edges,. Each piece has separte adjustable 'feet' so that the edges of the desk are not smashing down into the carpet. It does not have any under-the-desk drawers or keyboard pull-out. This desk is huge! Assembled, it is approximately 9 feet by 6 feet. The look & quality would be suitable for a small business or a large home office. I do wish they offered another separate drawer unit that matched, but I think I might be able to find something that can be hidden under the desk portion that would be close in color, or black.

It's very hard made desk. However, it's too heavy. Also, the desk edges are sharp to rest my arm.

This desk was the perfect fit for my son who is in a wheelchair. He is able to move in and out with ease. Footrest clears both the front and back and he is able to get up close to the edge of the desk. I was trilled.

The desk arrived earlier than expected which was great! The quality is really nice...even though it is bigger than what I thought but it looks very nice and elegant.

Looked a long time for a work space for the home office. This desk fit my budget and space. Very attractive cherry finish. Easy to assemble once your orientate the end supports. Great length to hold my laptop and display with lots of room for decorative pieces and a light. Perfect height and delivered super fast! Great value for the money. Overstock is my home port for all shopping needs.
