Sauder� Heritage Hill Double-Pedestal Desk, 64 3/4W, Classic Cherry
Nice Looking desk for my home office
Just like most everyone here states its very difficult to assemble. And it take great patience . I needed extra patience since my box had missing hardware. The instructions stated there would be 6 extension rails. I only had 4. Customer service was helpful though and shipped these rails out right away. I do not fault Office Depot, the box was not open/ taped ect. It was brand new packaging from the factory.
The drawers are made of very cheap material and damage very easily.Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase, now that its assembled and in my office..

Assembly Almost Caused a Divorce!
My wife and I have been through a lot during our marriage. We survived a long distance relationship in college. We made it through law school when I hardly saw her. She supported me during my early career as a young lawyer who worked 90+ hours a week. We made it through 2 kids (boys). However, after spending 8 hours assembling this desk on a weekend, my wife almost had enough! During the 8 hours of misery, my wife said I became a frustrated monster. I ignored the family, dropped a few f bombs, slammed some liquor to easy the pain, BUT at least I have a decent looking desk now.
The moral of the story - if you don't mind spending 8 hours to assemble this desk, have a spouse who doesn't mind putting up with your ***attitude (you'll be ***after hour #2), and have lots of liquor on stand-by, then this is the desk for you!

Great product, great Customer service
I've had this desk for over a month now. it is good built desk and quiet heavy. I am not sure how long it took for me to built it but a single person can put it together. You may need 2 people to flip the desk over.
One of the handle piece was broken and I wasted some energy to come up with alternative. Little did I know, the CS was great and they mail me the part no question ask.
Overall, I'm absolutely please and would recommend this highly. The only reason I am giving this 4 star is because the drawer alignment is a bit off. I've tried readjusting them but it is still slightly off. you can feel it but can't tell. so over all I'm happy with the purchase and kudos for great customer service

Built the desk this weekend and it turned out great. Everything fit perfect and did not have any problems. Only thing that I personally would change would be the Hardware for the drawers, I would prefer polished Brass instead of Antique Brass but other than that this product is great and I would recommend it to anyone.
