HON� Radius-Edge Laminate 72 Bookcase, 6 Shelves, Mahogany
HON Radius?Edge Bookcases
Perhaps a bit exspensive but, in general this is an excellent product -- It was just the size of bookcase that I was looking for.
The only complaint I have is that the radius edges for the top are seperate pieces instead of being part of the bookcase top piece -- They are small and it is difficult to get the cambolts screwed into the edge pieces.
Otherwise I am quite satisfied with this bookcase.

Not the same as before
I purchased three of the Hon Radius bookcases several years ago. They were decent quality, with a nice wood veneer, solid shelves, and a wood veneer back. I just bought a fourth one to match, and I was extremely disappointed when I opened the package. They have replaced the veneer with a cheap-looking laminate, and the back is now cardboard. These are exactly the same as the cheap $99 bookcases you can buy off the floor at Staples, Office Max, or Office Depot. I really liked the Hon Radius bookcases before; I was willing to pay a premium for the look of real wood. Now, these are the same low quality things you can buy anywhere. Don't waste your money paying a premium price for these.

Sorry I bought it
First off, there is no mention that this item needed to be assembled. Once received, the parts where loose in the package and several pieces where missing. The shelves where marred where the loose parts where floating aroung during shipping. If I had it to do over again, it would not be purchased.
