Rated 5 out of 5?by JoJo Best Sturdy Desk I Have Had
When I got it home & opened it up & laid out all the parts I knew I was in for a long project. Thy have you put the hutch together first & that took about 3 hours myself to finish. In step 18 they want you to put the desktop panel on the hutch with cam locks & bolts then put 2 screws in. I did not use screws as i want the desk to more movable if ever need be (The hutch can be removed from the desktop). Then in step 45 they want you you to put the hutch/desktop on to the base, this where i pu the desktop on the base without the hutch since in step 18 i did not attach the desktop top to the hutch. Then i tightened the cam locks They want you to put glue in the desktop whee he pegs will g to hold the the hutch to the desktop, this i also skipped since i want the hutch to be removable. I went to my local Walmart & got a pack of bulldog "T" brackets and used those by the monitor opening on he back & screwed he hutch to the desktop. Now if I need to move it & i can easily removes the screws from he bracket & lift off he hutch. i did miss the hanging files spleen but a simple call to the 800 number got the parts on order. This desk is very sturdy and well put together. The hutch took about 3-4 hours for me to build myself. The next night I had a helper to to put the bottom together & that was about 6 hours long to do. Please note the computer is supposed to be on the inside on the left, however i put mine on the floor next to the desk as it is a custom build and there is no ventilation in the desk except the cables holes. There is no keyboard hole in the back of the desk so I used a 1 inch bit & drilled hole in the back wood panel to allow my keyboard cable to go though. You will not need to do this if your computer is in the cabinet as it has a hole on the side under the keyboard tray.

I put this together. Directions were very good and pieces were well marked. However, the dowels were too long. I marked each at the halfway mark when I inserted them, but when I joined desk pieces, several pierced the flat side and left unsightly damage. I repaired with glue as best as possible, but 3-5 places are marred on a brand new desk. The design and storage space are good. This desk is cheaply constructed so will not stand the test of time.

Rated 1 out of 5?by kstein417 CHEAP! (And not in the good way)
Bought this less than a month ago.This is very poorly made. The laminate came off with an ordinary piece of Scotch tape. The drawer handle broke in half. I have owned many ready-to-assemble desks over the years and I have never had this happen. I'm taking it back!!!

Absolutely gorgeous!!! I love the set up and the entire look. Very sturdy. There were so many pieces but everything was labeled and went together without a hitch. Loving it.
