poor construction
 from chicago il,  Nov 15, 2011

When this arrived I started putting it together and discovered that the screw holes on shelf A weren't aligned with the screw holes on metal support A so I had to call overstock.com customer service and I'm waiting for replacement parts. I then discovered that the shelves aren't solid pieces of wood. They're fiberboard with thin walnut-colored veneer glued over. The screw holes had fiberjunk in them from when they were drilled and I could not screw anything in until it was cleared out. Definitely not solid wood. I wasn't expecting that, especially not for $800 per piece, $1000 new. The website says "Hardwood construction" but then under materials it says MDF (medium density fiberboard) core with italian-imported veneer... what does "hardwood" mean then? Fiberboard is cheap. Its like paper. I wish it was solid wood, or rather, "hardwood" but its not. As bookshelves they look nice, and they seem solid even though the construction is shoddy. Veneer scratches easily so be careful when assembling this and moving it around. I will never consider another product by Moftloft because of the poor build quality of this piece. I feel shame owning fiberboard furniture, but I'll just move on and look on the upside, it performs the intended function and doesn't look terrible.
