For furniture that has to be assembled, this buffet is very sturdy compared to other items I have assembled (e.g., desks, bookcases, a/v cabinets) and it was very easy to assemble. Although it is made from rubberwood, which I had never heard of, most of the major pieces (top, bottom, sides, drawer fronts) are heavy and feel like they are made of solid wood. The walnut veneer finish is very good and makes the buffet look like it is made from solid walnut. My only complaint is that there was a blemish on the left front corner of the top. Hopefully, I will be able to cover it with a furniture touch up kit or repair pen.
There are only a few downsides to this lovely piece...here's my short wishlist: I wish the hinge adjustments allowed me to get closer to perfection...in a linear, modern piece like this, the smallest misalignment is noticeable. I wish the legs were designed to allow better adjustment for uneven floors...you can unscrew them a bit and get close, but I still had to shim, and because the bottom of the leg is so narrow, the shim is visible. Other than that, we are really satified. If you really USE your furniture like we do, it's hard to beat rubberwood. You may curse its weight while unpacking, assembling, and moving into place, but this thing is built to last.
