The desk is well made and sturdy, but the pictures was a bit deceiving. The desk top is not entirely glass, and came in three pieces the two sides being glass, and the center desk is the coated wood. It is still a beautiful piece, and addition to anyone's office. also a side note, be careful when placing hot cups of coffee on the coated top, the coating bunches with heat. no sharp objects either. I think the worst part of the desk is the coating on the wood, it seems to be some sort of plastic type wrap, damages easily.
