A fine little table - BUT...
 from North Florida,  Jan 10, 2013

We have an architectural nook in a hall by the stairs that needed a small table to place keys, etc. The dimensions fit and the color is nice. However, please know that this table is made of Balsam wood, or model making wood, and is VERY light. My small, four yr old daughter picked it up and brought it to the hall - HA! We're keeping it for only one reason; it comes with a long dry wall screw and one anchors it (literally screws it) into the wall so it won't fall over. This works for us but any other uses, I bet someone would be very disappointed. It was easy to put together with only one pre-drilled hole out of alignment. The wood is so soft and thin my husband was able to simply place the screw in the correct spot and screw it in - no pilot hole needed. Another small issue is that the drawers are not on any tracks but simply slide in. Similar to my shop class jewelry box I made in 6th grade. I put minwax on the bottom so the sandpaper - like scratching noise was lessened when using the drawers. It holds a small lamp and again, it's for cell phone, keys and wallets by the back door. If this table was to go anywhere else, it would fall over if anyone bumped (and would probably crack or break) it so keep in mind you must screw it to the wall. Had I saw it in a store for $$ I would not have purchased it as I feel it's worth half that. But, again, we have a hard to fit area that needed a table and I tend to keep the things delivered to the front door.
