Rated 4 out of 5�by thatguy Good-looking, solid bookshelf
I purchased this bookshelf because it matched the filing cabinet and desk I purchased - both Dawson in cinnamon cherry.
Overall, I think it is a pretty solid piece, and would recommend it to a friend. It looks good and the shelves are pretty sturdy. There are a couple of things that prevent me from giving 5 stars though:
-The backing is made of the same flimsy cardboard that you see on all low-end bookshelves. For the price, I don't mind so much, but it just smacks of low quality.
-The instructions for adjusting the doors are very vague - it basically says play with the screws until you get it right. I never did get it perfect, but my wife didn't notice so its good enough.
-The biggest thing is that the book shelf seems a bit wobbly. I attached the feet as wide as I could get them, but still don't trust it. The straps that come included would probably be enough to make it safe, but looks horrible. Instead, I bought some small "L" brackets and mounted them to the wall facing down, then slid the book case back and attached with a few small screws. It looks a lot better than the straps, but required a few extra bucks and drilling into the top of the cabinet.

Poor quality material. Some pieces were not made to fit correctly. Looked much better in the photo that actual product.

I bought this a while back and I love it! It does exactly what I need it to do...store books and office stuff. My only complaint is there are these small plastic covers that will not stay put. They're function is to cover the metal screws so you don't see them. I may try some glue. Other than that great product.
