This desk is sturdy, beautiful, and Easy to put together. Just screw in the legs and you're done. Drawers are perfect size for drawer organizers. Highly recommend to anyone looking for clean and simple lines.
I was hoping that the desk would be very shiny, almost laquer like, but it looks fairly dull up close. However, it does look pretty shiny from far away. If I had seen the desk in person, I might not have bought it. It is a good value for the price and very sturdy and easy to put together, but I was going for a more modern look that I don' t think this captures.
I've purchased a couple of comparable desks from Pier One for double the money and there is no difference. This looks good, was easy to put together and is very functional. I received it in 4 days and in perfect condition. I'm ordering another one right now.
This is my first purchase from Overstock and I was pleasantly surprised. I've been looking for a small, light-weight desk to use with my laptop. First of all, most of the desks I was finding were bigger, bulkier and heavier. Not what I wanted. The ones that were small and light-weight were cheaper in terms of materials and workmanship, but more expensive. I was happy to find what I was looking for and for the price that I wanted to pay (it was even on sale). The desk was super easy to assemble, as it included all the parts and instructions. It was packaged very well, as I didn't find any scratches. I got what I wanted!
The desk took a little time to assemble but in the end was worth it. Make sure you don;t screw the lock screws in to far in the top as it will push them into the surface of the desktop, I assembled myself in about an hour and a half. It looks nice.
The construction is sensible.
The fit and finish of the parts is excellent.
All parts labeled with stick on letters and they match the workbook drawings.
Ignore the numbered parts on the outside of the box. They do not match the book. LOL
Very well packaged too.
The drawings in the manual are good.
Use a magnifying glass on some photos as there could be a left-right issue.
Really look at the details of the drawings. Hold the part next to the drawing and make sure the orientation is right. Even if you think you know! Do not put wood dowels in both parts of the drawer . Only one side. Luckily I got mine out before the glue dried.
There is not enough glue. Get more glue. With the
Superglue you can go to your local hobby shop and get a 5-15 second version Cyancryolate that is thicker to take up gaps. Do not let children or pets get near that glue.
If you really want to be safe use yellow wood glue or better yet use PL premium construction adhesive and apply it sparingly with a popcicle stick.
Wipe off the excess with a damp cloth. Use a dry cloth or paper towel for the PL premium glue.
I glued all of the leg structure with PL premium glue on all of the joints but I did not use glue on the top surface in case I ever wanted to move the table easily. I just use the cam locks to detach the top of the table.
Make sure to use all of the screws because they all are important.
One thing I changed is the tracks on the bottom of the drawers. Don't put the screws that hold on the tracks of the drawers from the bottom as shown. The provided screws have no holding strength at all and will crack the composite. Put the two screws in the side of the track in the holes with the angled edge so the screw fits flush.
I put together all the parts on a folding card table.
Do not try to just sit on the floor to build this table.
It will be a much harder job. (polite description) LOL

When you are starting to assemble the leg structure, and you are ready to add the second end piece, ( PART C) carefully sit the entire structure on the floor and then finish that last part while standing up to do the work.
We were prepared for challenging assembly, having read another review before buying this desk. The product arrived without one of the pieces. We called the mfgr, and were sent the missing piece immediately. Overall, we love this desk. It's sturdy, well designed and built to last. Once it's put together, it's a winner.
Got mine today, easy assembly. 66 in. X 56 in (the "L" Shape) X 29.5 in (Height) are the "real" useful dimensions. Fits well with my little study (108 sq ft, square shaped). If you have a desktop, the caddy can hold your CPU. However, as a laptop user, I would prefer a matching cabin with two or three drawers instead of the caddy.
This desk is heavy and beautiful. My husband put it together and he said that the plastic pieces are flimsy. He said the bolts break easily with too much torque so be careful. This desk comes in two boxes and many pieces so be prepared to spend a few hours putting it together. I bought the mahogany finished desk and it is very beautiful.
The sides of the desk can be interchanged to make the right side work as the left and vice-versa. The product's description does not highlight this feature, neither does the customer service rep on the phone and/or online know about this.
When I put it together, I realized the holes for the screws on the sides are on both ends to provide for this feature.
On the whole, this is a good buy, reasonably priced, fast shipping, and I am sure durable for years to come.
