Compact, attractive, but a few flaws
 from Astoria, OR,  Jul 19, 2010

Instructions were confusing in couple of spots but, looking at the illustrations clears up the confusion. All I used for tools was a screwdriver and a tack hammer. The only tricky part is tacking on the cardboard back. There is so little room for error that the tacks came through the veneer in a few places, lifting up small chunks of "wood" (MDF). I pulled the tacks out and dabbed a little white wood glue under the raised chunks and smoothed them back into place with a damp cloth. You can't even tell it was damaged. So be very careful with the spacing of the backing pieces so that your tacks stay perfectly on center. I agree with "onefatman" that the decorative vertical trim obscures some of the shelf space, so you can not see the binder titles of the DVDs stored at the ends of a full shelf. This is less than ideal. The trim should be narrower. I also agree with him about the shelves being too narrow. If there were only a few DVDs on a shelf, they could fall down the space a the back. I understand they did it that way to make it easier to put together but it is certainly less than perfect. That said, I am happy with mine overall and will buy the double-width for future expansion of our ever-growing movie collection. I got all of the movie DVDs from a huge bookshelf in this little storage tower, which takes up a fraction of the space, Nice! Rodney
