After reading reviews and shopping for stacking/folding shelves all over the net, I found best pricing for size from The O. I was shopping to match my mohagany coffee table and wooded feet of various chairs. THIS IS NOT "MAHAGANY", it is more like REDWOOD, nowhere even NEAR what mahagany should be; definitely a deeper redwood. I ordered two of them to stack and I only ened-up keeping them because the theme of my apartment is lots of deep reds/burgandy/black and aquas, and they are deep enough color to atually compliment everything else. Someone else may feel let-down if expecting truely rich mahogany. These seem well-made and are solid, even when stacked on carpeting, and were very well packed with no damage at all. This ened-up being one of those "happy accidentals" in life and love how easy they were to set-up. It literally took me 10x more time upackaging them. The "O" had a 7% discount I used on order and am very pleased with them.
This set of shelves is great for my narrow space - it uses the wall space up for storing many books. A couple of notes on putting it together - yes, the instructions are horrible, yes, the entire box was quite heave, and, yes, there was a little side damage toward the back. However, the shelves and sides are very sturdy, it was possible to open the box on the porch and carry the pieces in separately and the damage doesn't show, at least in my circumstance.
1) Parts D and G do not connect to one another regardless of what you think the picture is trying to represent. They each connect to the long side independently.
2) There are holes that are not used in the sides - the first picture looks like you are installing a whole bunch of screws, many of those are actually installing the little plastic plugs for the holes - I found this out the hard way and had to remove many of the screws:(
3) Otherwise, things are pretty straight forward.
This bookcase is exactly what I was looking for. It was easy to assemble, even though all instructions were just pictures. No parts were missing, and all the pieces fit together perfectly. It is very sturdy and stable, and it looks good. The dimensions were accurately stated, and it fits very nicely in the spot I had planned for it. We are considering purchasing another one for another spot in the house.
The steel book cases are 6 shelves and are heavy. I assumed floor assembly and standing upright would be a problem with twisting. Did not happen that way, the assembly method and procedure is very good. Even though they were heavy they did not twist and are very stable.They are loaded with books now.
The bookcase itself is really well made and arrived in perfect condition, but the shipping through Overstock was very strange. The shipping company called to let me know they couldn't deliver to residential addresses, but they were still given the shipment and were now stuck with it (and I live in a normal area). They were super friendly about it, so I'd recommend THAT company! Anyways, I eventually found someone who knew someone with a pickup truck who could drive 12 miles to meet the freight semi truck at a gas station to pick up my bookcase.
So just a heads up to anyone looking to purchase this that the "free shipping" Overstock offers might involve you renting a pickup truck and spending half your day doing your own delivery...
Best bookcase I've ever owned - sturdy, easy to assemble, neutral, holds a ton of books, deep shelfs, adjustable, holds large textbooks, art books, etc. Well made. Not pretty, but perfect for home office or kids' bedroom.
Shelf brackets are plastic. I though they would be metal like the rest of the Bookcase and like I have seen on the HON Metal Bookcases in professional offices. I guess this is the cheaper "home" version.
But, no complaints here. I have the shelves filled with thick textbooks and have not had a problem. So overall, this is a good product for a good price.
We bought it to replace a lateral file cabinet that broke. Fits those displaced files with room to spare. Not sure if the shelve can really hold 200 lbs each - but hopefully I won't have to find out. Looks nice enough that my co-worker wants one too.
These shelves are very sturdy and the shiny black finish gives them a great contemporary look. They're so sturdy that you don't have to worry about them tipping over or screwing them to the wall, which you have to do with some cheaper, wood shelves. They came already assembled. The shelves are a bit tough to loosen if you want to move them up or down, but that's also a good thing--they will not come loose even if there's a lot of weight on them.
