      I used this desk in my guest room and it doubled as a bedside table/desk and was just very solid and pretty. I loved the wood and once it was put together, was a very solid piece. highly recommend!

      Excellant price for a writing desk. Large 48 inch surface. Smooth desk drawer slide. Unfinished wood made it easy to paint or stain to fit office decor. Easy assembly of legs in about a minute. Would definitely purchase again.

    • Terrific Value
      Verified Purchase

      I'm thrilled with my new writer's desk. There is nothing to complain about and much to rave about. I did a lot of comparison shopping before making this purchase so I am in an informed enough position to appreciate the supreme value of this desk. MATERIAL: The fact that it is solid wood (rubber wood) alone puts it shoulders above anything else in the market under $200 - no laminates to peel off and no off gassing glue holding a compressed mass of wood shavings together. And it's beautiful wood - nicely dense and powdery smooth, its natural colour so pleasing I am considering changing my mind about staining or painting it. The fact I paid only $$$ for this made it a steal. CONSTRUCTION: also solid - all parts fit together perfectly. This desk ain't wobbling! And the assembly was dead easy. I've only one hand so a girlfriend did this for me in half an hour, I think. The drawer is on runners (not top of the line but adequate) so it glides out easily. It fits snugly when closed. I've not tested it weighted with contents yet. SIZE: A perfect compromise between generosity of work space and the need to conserve limited floor space. I can spread out a big binder, my mac notebook, a table lamp, snack bowl, knick knacks, and not feel cramped. DELIVERY: Was surprised at how quickly it arrived - 2 or 3 days I think. And at under $3 for S&H I not only saved gas money but having to carry the desk to and from the car. Sweet.

    • Fantastic Desk
      Verified Purchase

      What a fabulous desk! Sleek and sturdy, raw wood. Couldn't beat the price! Easy to put together, just had to put the legs on. I'm a photographer and I needed something simple with ample top space and it serves me great. If you don't need bells and whistles like drawers (it has one, that's plenty for me) or cabinets or a hutch, this is a piece for you! The toughest thing to figure out with this desk is whether or not to stain it. The raw wood look is gorgeous with visible knots and grain, but would probably take a stain beautifully! It's clutter resistant too. You will keep it cleaned off as much as possible to always see it! I highly recommend this desk!

    • Great quality!
      Verified Purchase

      I initially ordered the "espresso" colored desk in this style, but it arrived more as a cherry wood, so I opted for this unfinished model. I sanded (really didn't need to), found a gel stain (para wood doesn't take regular oil based stains well) and finished with a matte polyurethane seal. The result is a stunning. Now a true espresso! Am very happy with this purchase and highly recommend.

    • Lovely writing desk
      Verified Purchase

      Arrived in timely fashion, delivery box was beat up but contents well protected. There was only a very small indentation on the top. I applied a satin, clear polyurethane to the top. Next day, I sanded top with fine grit sanding block as the poly raised the grain ever so slightly. I applied a fine furniture wax to legs, sides and drawer. This brought out the beauty of the wood, while giving it protection from daily use. It is a lovely table for a very good price.

    • Excellent quality for price
      Verified Purchase

      "This desk did need some light sanding before painting/staining, but I expected that. My only negative feedback is that the desk had a very unpleasant (and unhygienic-smelling) odor that I had to address. Kind of gross, but I'm assuming that was just a one-time problem. Since I was sanding anyway, I wiped it thoroughly with Clorox wipes (which made the wood fibers swell slightly) and then sanded after it dried. Probably not the best way to deal with wood! But it did the trick. Again, overall, when I consider the pricing and construction, I do recommend this desk. "

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "The desk is described as "unfinished". Does this mean it should not be used until a finish coat is applied? e.g., if someone eats on it, I wonder if any spillage would be absorbed into the unfinished wood."

      • A:

        Yes, it is unfinished with no stain protection so I would definitely treat it before use to avoid spills from soaking into the wood.

      • A:

        Definitely needs to be varnished or painted, unless you intend to NEVER paint/varnish it. I found mine only needed a very light sanding with fine grit paper, then I painted it with a coat of primer/sealer and two coats of "trim and cabinet" paint, in gloss finish, which is great for repelling oils and food stains. I use it in my kitchen to hold my microwave and canisters. Very happy. Good luck!

    • Q:

      "Does this desk come in Espresso? I saw a review that said he ordered the same desk in that color..."

      • A:

        I don't see it, however, I ordered the unfinished and stained it myself. Put 4 coats of polyurethane on it. It's beautiful! Very easy to do. Very nice desk for the money.

      • A:

        Yes this does come in espresso item number is SKU#16471255.

      • A:

        The desk is UN-finished wood. It is smooth and ready for painting or staining. All you might want to do ( or not) is sand it a little first using very fine paper.
