I'm pretty handy, but these instructions were very vague. After a few tries, I got the drawer sliders right and now it looks and functions exactly as I needed. I bought two to use as cabinets and night stands.
This item is beautiful to look at. It did arrive with damage to one drawer hold (have to deduct 1 star for this), but the overall workmanship and quality of wood seem to make up for that. I am using as a book shelf and would have a hard time resigning it to a shoe box; albeit, it could be a nice one. I like this piece so much that I ordered a matching hutch that is unfortunately of far inferior quality.
This bookcase is very nice even the backing is quite sturdy. My only issue is the back of the drawer had a large crack. I did not want to go through the hassle of getting another one so we glued it. It won't show, but it had to be noticed prior to packing and shipping. Otherwise, it's a nice looking piece of furniture.
Based on the reviews I was a little worried about the quality of the product but it is decent quality for the price and looks great in our den. The drawers are a bit looser than I would like but once we put items in them they were better.
