In the description it states that the material is "Made with solid Chinese oak and plywood", but when I look at the back of it, the main box appears to be MDF (which is cardboard). It does seem to be nicer and more solidly build that most.
The finish looks better than I expected for an MDF based piece. There are no sliders on the wooden legs. Only three shelf adjusting holes are provided. The provided printed instructions were more accurate than the online version, but eliminated all the text on the pictures. Install took one 79 year old man over half a day. Not enough wood glue is provided. The screws to install the fireplace are almost impossible to install (I only used the top two as a result). I followed another buyers advice to put top on after installing the fireplace insert, but it was still too tough since no starter holes were provided. No wire guides are provided.
