I hunted forever, and was about to have a custom piece made when I ran across this piece. The great reviews are true. This is the best piece for crafting or a lot of other uses. I make jewelry and I couldn't ask for anything better for that. I can see my materials, and additional storage galore. I put it together myself. The top is heavy and I do recommend getting help...I am stronger than a lot of women I know so was not a huge deal for me. Make sure you have it where you want it when put together, as it is a little difficult to move once put together. I did receive two of the same bottom pieces, but Overstock sent out the additional correct piece immediately. They have the best customer service people ever! Even the trucking company they used to deliver my piece was super!
