I can't stand density fiber board, I stay from it when possible. These tables were easy to assemble and looked as good if not better than the pictures. They had some dfb but not where it matter so much. The exterior was all solid wood and well finished. It looks as good as if it had been completely put together already. I like the storage you have with the drawers that come out most of the way to get to everything. I had been shopping around for a while, this was definitely a great buy for the money and quality.
