I actually enjoy some assembly projects, but when I opened up the package and saw the small container of glue, my heart sank. The shelf is poorly designed, and the instructions are incomplete and confusing, so assembly was a nightmare. The materials are poor quality - the shelves themselves are soft plywood covered in some material to make them look like walnut, and the so-called "phillips screws" got stripped within 30 seconds of trying to screw them in. A lot of the dowels and screws did not fit correctly. About four hours later I finally got the shelf assembled, and it's shaky though I tightened all the screws. I am not sure what we can put on the shelf without it falling over. I really do not recommend purchasing this. We bought two and I'm considering returning the second one.
