Nice cabinet
 from CT,  Oct 17, 2011

Loved the look of these cabinets, and the versatility of the glass doors and drawers. Love the color and the feel of the wood, too. The assembly was relatively easy for my husband and myself, but we are experienced in putting stuff together. The only con of the finish is that the staining is too superficial, and when the wood gets a little scratched it really shows. The backing is also a little flimsy. My biggest issue with these cabinets is that I bought them to use as bookcases, with pretty much nothing else on the shelves but lots of books, meaning full shelves of books. When we got them it turned out that the INTERIOR SHELVES are made of GLASS. This was (and still is) entirely lacking in the item description, and the images are not clear enough to show it if you are assuming they are made of wood. In addition, the weight limit on the shelves is lacking anywhere on the packaging or the assembly instructions - which is quite unusual for shelving, since we've purchased all kinds of shelves before and they all indicated how much weight the shelves can bear. I contacted Overstock to find out the limit on these shelves, and they were not helpful about it, but after pushing to at least find out whether they are made of tempered glass, they did come back and confirmed that they indeed are made of tempered glass. So, estimating the weight limit, I loaded the books onto the shelves - though I put the big and heavy ones on the wooden bottom shelf - and they are holding up. We've had them for a couple of months now, and they are still holding up. I might get some thicker tempered glass shelves in the long run, though - these are just a little bit on the thin end. I would be worried about loading heavy items on them - pottery, sculptures, crystal, etc.
