After 20 years struggling with a cumbersome office layout, crumbling paperboard furniture; the Talisman 2-drawer Writing Desk was the perfect solution. It is solid with plenty of surface space, 2 handy drawers and keyboard shelf. We highly recommend this product!
Thus is definitely worth the price. Assembly was easy. Took me about an hour overall, probably because I was working solo. Easy to follow instructions. Everything fit together perfectly. I was thrown off when I first has to attach the sides to the middle shelf piece with dowels because the dowels werent snug as I thought they should be. It turned out great though, because usually in a cheaper product the dowels are the only things holding the piece together. The dowels in this case were just to hold the pieces together temporarily. Screws hold everything in place very tightly and securely. I expected even the back of the cabinet to be cheap paperboard but it came in 3 slats with dividers that fit snugly as well. No nails either! I love that they need to be screwed in as well. The doors will probably be better off installed with 2 people but I was able to manage it by myself. I also love that the doors aren't crooked as you might expect with cheaper furniture. Overall, excellent quality! I planned on purchasing the matching floor cabinet if this worked out and I just purchased it before writing this review, lol! Highly recommend buying this. Worth every penny. Another word of advice before hanging it: don't go off of the reference paper they give you to hang the cabinet, as the holes on the paper aren't where the holes on the cabinet are. Obviously, hanging it is a two person job. Otherwise, great product!
This bookcase was just the size I wanted and the quality is good, but I feel it is a little over priced for such a small bookcase. Wood is solid and it was easy to put together. Solid enough that I did not put the paperboard backing on it, but I may put it on at a later time, but I kind of like looking through it and seeing the wall. If you need this size, you won't be disappointed.
This table is nearly identical to the ***** Map Coffee table, which sells for $600. What made me buy this one (besides the much better price) was that Overstock's is real solid wood, while the other is MDF and veneer. It ships in two flat-pack boxes that weigh about 70 and 90 pounds each. As other reviewers mentioned, it definitely helps to have two sets of hands during assembly, especially lifting the tabletop. But, I'm a single woman and managed to get it in the front door and assemble the entire thing on my own in just over 2 hours, so it's definitely do-able! The only reason this isn't a 5-star review is that the drawers are a little flimsy compared to the quality of the rest of the product. The drawer bottoms are some sort of reinforced paperboard/chipboard (I think?), which is a pretty stark contrast to the tabletop, which is about 1 1/2" thick of solid hardwood. They also don't slide very smoothly for me, and I found it really difficult to align the sliding mechanisms on both sides in order insert the drawers. But, I don't really plan to use the drawers very often, so I don't see this as a big drawback for me. Overall, a great value for me. Just be prepared to spend a little bit of time assembling & maybe con a friend or family member into helping you.
