I have a rubberwood bookcase I had purchased almost two decades that I am still pleased with so I knew the material is very good. I received the buffet in fairly good time. Everything was delivered correctly and everything was in great shape. Get some help lifting the heavier pieces and make sure to protect them as you unpack them. That way you won't scratch the finish. Assembly was easier than the instructions made it look espeically with the aid of a cordless drill. The finished piece has gotten a lot of compliments from friends and the "wifey " loves it! Some after market add-ons I recommend are floor saver felt pads on the legs and rubber bumber pads for the edges of the doors and drawers. Overall I'm very satisfied with the product.
