This is an inexpensive bit of furniture, no real wood involved, but it does the job well. The wood composite covered with some sort of sheeting looks fine. Just be careful not to scratch it or you'll puncture or rip the veneer (of course you wouldn't want to scratch fine wood furniture either). Assembled in about an hour, directions are easy to follow if you take the time to read them carefully. There is one aspect that I'd consider a design flaw. The trim along the vertical face elements and across the top limit the use of the ends of the shelves and the ability to stand CDs on edge on the top shelf. I put blocks of plywood on the ends of each shelf to keep CDs from being covered by the trim, but that cuts 36 CDs from the maximum number the shelf can hold. On the top shelf the CDs must be laid down; if you try to stand them up you have to maneuver them around the trim. Making the unit an inch taller would alleviate this latter issue. All that being said, however, for the cost, it's a pretty good deal. It holds items safely and neatly and gets them off the piles on the floor that were their previous storage site.
