Didn't work exactly as I planned. I wanted to use it as a printer stand and measured very carefully to make sure my printer would fit on the bottom shelf. Unfortunately, I didn't take into account that the measurements shown are obviously taken front to back and side to side in the middle of the shelves. The corners are not quite wide enough. However, I found something else that works for the printer and this makes a great shelf for magazine holders and books. This is a sturdy shelf and, once I got it together, very pretty. Assembly is definitely a two person job because you need three hands to hold everything together while screwing the legs to the shelves. Took me about three hours by myself. Would've been about a third of that with another person.
This item was very well engineered. Everything fit together perfectly and exactly as the directions indicated. The only thing I would say is an extra hand to hold the larger shelfs in place while you attach them to the first side piece would be helpful. I did it without help but that step took a little creativity. Over all it was very easy to assemble and it looks great.
Textural and architectural details combine to make a visually interesting set of solid shelves. Easy to put together. The thick wood shelves have a re-claimed, rustic, hand sawed look. Warning: this is not fine furniture. One shelf was a little too rustic as it had a large crack and an uneven surface, but that got buried under a row of books. Made in china.
This shelf is in a kitchen to store often used white dishes and clear glass bowls.It is so handy not to have to open cabinet doors anymore. The material is sturdy and well veneered. The cross bars add style. One of them split during assembly. The phone number on the directions was not operative, so I contacted Overstock. The rep, Yolanda was very attentive and helpful. She was not getting through the number either, but, assured me the needed replacement part would be available. It took a few days, but, she followed through , kept in contact, and eventually the part did arrive. Overstock has a gem in Yolanda. There are a lot of parts, and assembly is time consuming. Had the materials not been generally of good quality, I would have considered the split piece reason to return the shelf.
