Bush? Bennington Managers Desk, 30 3/4 H x 66 W x 29 1/2 D
Bush Bennington Managers Desk
This is a beautiful desk. It is very elegant looking and spacious while not taking up a lot of space. The cost of the desk is very reasonable.

Very nice desk
First, the reason I bought this was because it was Bush. I've had furniture in the past from them and it's very sturdy and lasts.
Second, I think most that are giving bad reviews here did so because the desk was damaged (not Bush's fault), or they tried slapping it together without going over the instructions and laying everything out (prep work is important), it does take 6-7 hours to assemble but can be done by one person.
There were a few reviews about the drawers having issues. Mine went together perfectly (you have to make sure the bottoms are correctly slipped into the channels provided), and also make sure you screw it together while pressing the sides in so nothing slips out, then the bottoms are solid. There was one review where the drawer faces kept falling off. I couldn't make this happen even if I tried (they are screwed together and held together with a secondary plastic dowel inserted into the sides (impossible is more like it).
My advice? Lay everything out in a good sized area, take your time, and go over each connection before screwing it together. The only concern I had before starting was maybe the drawer rails wouldn't slide smoothly or fit nicely because you separate the two piece rails and screw them to the drawer and the side of the desk, then hope they slide together. They went in perfectly and slid closed with a slight touch. Couldn't be happier.

I was really impressed with this product. Once you understand the instructions, it not too difficult, but it will take time to assemble. plan on spending 6-8 hours. Everything fit well , and no parts were damaged or missing. Also the boxes are heavy so it is best to open the box and take the pieces to the area you plan to do the assembly in.

Would like to return this desk. DO NOT BUY
Not only did my husband and I spend 7 hours putting this thing together. The wood is of such poor quality that the drawer faces come right off when you try to open a drawer. I should have spent 2 hours glueing the desk together. That is the only way any of the door faces would stay connected to the actual drawers. COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY! Oh and the drawers started falling apart after less than 24 hours of the desk being put together. Didn't even get a full days of work in before it started falling apart.
