the construction is not tip-top, but it is pretty good considering the price and that it looks nice. the doors need a little encouragement to line up/close properly and the inside drawer was a pleasant surprise, if a little wonky. the wood is a nice, rich color, almost like a dark rose wood, but i'm not convinced how durable it is. i've only owned the cabinet for a month at the time of this review and it seems good so far, although i've made a point to be careful with it. overall i've been pretty pleased with it - it looks pretty good and was pretty cheap compared to most web sites.
