Rated 3 out of 5�by desertgspgal Good-looking quality wood, assembly nightmare
Loved looks of this bookshelf and it is just what I need for home office. Read all the reviews and was a little concerned about some of the assembly difficulties people mentioned. However, it looked like some of those reviews were older and perhaps the manufacturer had corrected the problems. I am pretty experienced at assembly, so gave it a try. BIG MISTAKE. I don't know if they have some kind of quality control issue, but this particular piece was impossible to assemble per the instructions, which I followed to a "t". Some of the dowel holes were too small. Worse, if you got them to fit the pieces together, the screw holes would not line up and vice versa. I ended up assembling the piece without some of the dowels because that is the ONLY way it would work. It took me four hours of frustration (and cursing!) to get this thing put together. It looks great and seems sturdy, but I sure hope it holds together. If you can buy an assembled one in the store, go for it, but ordering to assemble yourself is definitely dicey.

This bookcase was exactly what I was looking for. It matches the writing desk perfectly. It was an easy assembly, but then I knew what to look for. The instructions are a bit vague, as no written instructions and the diagrams are not totally clear.
