Looks Great despite difficult assembly
 from Saint Paul, MN,  Aug 5, 2012

I had read all of the previous reviews and did have concerns about the assembly. I mean how hard could it be right? Well the reviews were correct, it was difficult. The cam-locks were tough to figure out and finally make work even with following the directions/placement. It did take some manipulation to get it all together. What I thought might take me a couple hours turned into probably 6 hours with a lot of days and breaks in between. It was one of those projects that is good to step away from if you get frustrated. There are some drawer sections that need to be drilled still and did not come pre-drilled. But, sitting them in for the time being works. Overall it looks great. nice wide design. The wood resembles the photo and doesn't look cheap. Similar to a Room and Board desk I admired, but couldn't afford. So, at a fraction of the cost the frustration putting it together is worth it in the end. Another thing to point out is it comes in 2 heavy boxes and if you don't have immediate help keep that in mind. 1st box is 35lbs the 2nd box is 75 lbs. It was just me picking up at the UPS will call so when i slid it into the car then out again I took the boxes apart to get them up to my apartment. I didn't realize they would be that heavy. If you are looking for a desk and don't mind a more extended project this does look good in the end.
