Poorly Designed Desk
 from San Diego, CA,  Aug 9, 2012

The desk looks very nice in the picture but was a big disappointment. It is very difficult and frustrating to assemble. I've been assembling furniture I've purchased for many years so I'm not a novice at this. I got to the point where the top piece needed to screw in but it wouldn't fit. I ended up scratching the wood and finally got the top to fit in. Then I couldn't get the fasteners to fit in - I ended up breaking a few of them because they wouldn't fit. The last straw was when I attached the keyboard drawer - the front flap would not stay attached to the magnet. The drawer was so much in the way and useless that I decided to throw away the whole keyboard drawer. The two drawers also stick when I open and shut them - I found a screw was rubbing against them and was able to adjust it to make it work. I really wanted to return this desk but I put about 8 hours into building it and it would be impossible to disassemble without breaking it (part of the assembly involves super-glue). It does work as a desk so I'm going to keep it for now. The bottom line is that the wood was not cut properly for customer assembly. If you buy this, be prepared to have to re-cut the wood to make it fit properly and possibly re-drill some of the holes for the fasteners.
