It wasn't until I pulled out all the pieces of the bookshelf that I realized almost every piece had a scratch on it somewhere. The bottom shelf had significant cosmetic damage to it. At this point, I didn't want to go through the hassle of putting it back in the box and figuring out how to send it back. Looking further into the packaging, I noticed there is a BROWN MARKER that came with the delivery!!! This should tell you something right here - obviously the marker was to "fix up" any dents / divets / damage. And boy, did I use it. Fortunately, I am using this bookshelf in a tiny corner in my office - and it is not seen by many. But, it is disappointing that such poor attention was put into ensuring the bookshelf would be shipped to me without defect. DO NOT recommend.

First one went together in about 40 minutes, Instructions were extremely clear with very helpful images in the step-by-step instructions.
I liked the way they first showed pictures of the fasteners in a very clear way, prior to instructions for assembly.
I purchased two bookcases of the same color and size - first was assembled in 40 minutes, the second in about 15 minutes because it's intuitive.
LOOK FOR THE FINISHED EDGES, AS OPPOSED TO THE RAW EDGES, WHEN ASSEMBLING BOTTOM, TOP AND SIDES.

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No defects - but labels for shelves A and B were swapped - easy to catch if you look for the finished edges matching with the front finished edge of the sides.
The words "assembly required" usually strike fear in my heart but assembling this bookcase went better than I thought. I had a friend who helped me and that really made a difference. I would say that the assemble is a 2 person job. Doing it alone could be very frustrating. Once we got the bookcase assembled we were quite proud of ourselves. The bookcase looked quite good, it felt solid and steady and had an elegance about it. I appreciated that a marker came with the bookcase to use in case there were any scratches on nicks. We did have to use it in a couple of places.
The bookcase arrived well-packed.
Some assembly was required but it was relatively easy. Care is needed putting the back on to get it central.
I ordered the mahogany finish but it was much darker than I expected. That didn't detract from the quality of the product.
All in all I was very happy.
