The credenza surprised us, this piece was just as surprising, the piece is solid, material is stable. It fits perfect on top of the credenza. The doors are solid and about 1" thick and durable (they slide). The doors and tops are light blonde wood look. Matches any maple, light oak or clear coated pine. I would by this brand again. Best if you layout the parts, add the dowels and anchor acrews then assemble it. Fits together smoothly. Assemble in the order it says. Took me about 1 1/2 hours, but I did it slow. Once assembled, it will need 2 peopel to lift and place on credenza, unless you lift one side and place on creenza and then lift other side and sliding it into place. Wife loves it. Wish we could upload a photo to show you! Maybe Overstock.com should add that in their review options. With a moderater to over see images posted of ourse!
First off, this thing is too heavy for one person to carry by themselves safely. So naturally, I carried it by myself. That was one heavy box. All of the contents were in good shape and all were accounted for. I spent half an hour just unpacking, putting all the parts in numerical order, and verifying the parts list. Usually something is missing, or there are two rights instead of a right and a left. This time, it was all there. After that it took me about four hours to put together. You definitely have to pay attention to the drawings, and think about orientations and positions. The positions of the rails are not clear in the drawings, and the many holes leave you with a multiple choice question. Once I got the wrong answer and ended up moving the sliders on the scanner panel one hole back to set it right. You need to look at the pieces together and lined up to make sure you pick the right holes. Once you do that, everything lines up and slides smoothly. Overall it wasn't difficult to assemble, but there are a lot of pieces, sliders, brackets, and screws and so it takes a while. (26 panels, 4 sliders, 2 handles, 9 posts, 8 feet, 110 screws, and 2 washers.) I highly recommend the use of a Makita or equivalent powered screwdriver. Now that it's finally done, I'm pleased with the result. The table is very solid, no doubt in part due to the weight. I like the little printer stand, which is big enough if you put the printer on it diagonally, and leaves lots of room to move the mouse around under it. The drawers and panels slide smoothly and easily. As noted, the "powder coated steel" is difficult to find. The thing is made out of particle board with some sort of thick plasticy coating that gives it a black painted woody look. If you're looking for solid wood or "powder coated steel", this isn't the desk for you. But if you want something solid and functional, I felt it was worth the cost and the assembly time.
It looks awesome and is a great piece for an office room. However functionality could be better. The glass top pieces move and lean a little if you but weight on the edge. Not the most sturdy. But still happy with it =)
Great quality and pretty dang durable item. The top is coated in an interesting... material. I don't know what it is, but it's a great mouse pad. Has a texture on it so makes it a little hard to write on with one piece of paper, but still works quite well.
