This book case is quite heavy, made of particle board with a fake wood veneer. The back, which nails on, is made of cardboard. Without nailing this in place the case doesn't stay square. The one shelf sets on top of four small pegs with small rubbery guards on them so it can pull right out. For the money it's ok but not a real piece of furniture per se.
I ordered 5 of these in cherry for my library. They're big and heavy, but once put together, they are very nice! One that was delivered was broken in half, but Overstock CS was wonderful about replacing it in a very short time. The only reason I didn't give these 5 stars is that the adjustable shelves weren't as versatile as I would have liked to accommodate all my different size books. . But I do recommend these.
