If this thing is solid wood, it's only a few pieces. The back is completely plywood. Many of the pieces have a hollow sound when knocked, especially the two side pieces of the large, down-folding door. I was shocked at how light-weight this item is, easily picked up and carried around. You need to put something heavy in the bottom drawer if you plan on using the fold-down drawer to keep it from tipping over. It looks nice, but that's about all I can say for it.
