Realspace� Premium Wide Bookcase, 5-Shelf, 72 1/8H x 35 3/8W x 13 5/8D, Brushed Maple
Quality appearance, very sturdy
I have four of these, all brushed Maple finish. I will be ordering three more this week. The seven shelves will line a wall, and it was important that the shelves be identical in appearance since they have to line up at the top edge, no room for variance or it will stand out. They match perfectly. Few tools needed, just a philips screwdriver and a small tap hammer to attach the back to the shelves. It takes about an hour to assemble one (1 person).

Wonderful book cases
Very nice in appearance. I have lined an entire wall with them. Some advice for assembly. Buy a rubber mallet. Use this to tap on the slides. Buy a large candle, or a birthday candle, a numerical type like the number 2. Use the candle to wax the slide edges on the shelves and the sides of the book case before installing the trim. This will allow you to just slide on the trim on the shelves. You will be able to slide on the side trim as well, to about 4 inches short of the goal, then tap home with the rubber mallet. Using wax to aid in the assembly makes it a quicik job to put together, about 30 minutes.

Nice, sturdy set of shelves. Attractive finish. Not quite the quality expected, which is why it is 4 stars instead of 5. Expected the backing to be made of sturdier material. Nonetheless, a quality office product that should last for years.

I put this together in just over an hour without any problems whatsoever. Instructions were very clear and everything went great every step of the way. It looks very good and seems very sturdy. There are no gaps or misaligned parts. I'll probably buy another one for the front room. I can't understand why other reviewers had such problems.
