This thing is a bear to put together and I am handy with this. Let's just say, they made it as complicated as they could think to. This thing had assembly pieces I have never encountered on all the assembly required things I have ever gotten. Granted, some of the sturdiness might be because I think I missed ONE DOWEL on the top, and once I figured it out, I was NOT going back and undoing everything I had done. Maybe one day. In any case, the bookcase is just too unique and pretty to give it less than 4 stars. In fact, I'm getting another one right now since it's available again. I will probably just figure out a way to modify the first one I got to make it sturdier. Based on all the reviews of how sturdy it is, part of it was me missing that one dowel, but I know for a fact part of it is the damm unit they sent because some of the implanted pieces came out from each other...hard to explain, but I assure you it wasn't user error. Anywho, give it a shot, its an awesome piece. Just read the instructions carefully and have more patience than I did when you put it together so you don't miss a single dowel. Then you'll do great and love your bookcase.
