Rated 5 out of 5�by SueB Looks awesome!
Really sturdy and sleek, in my living room. I put it together myself with no help. I Just went slowly and paid attention to the directions. It was a little heavy and probably would have gone faster if I'd had help. Great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5�by HJLC No significant problems
I had very few problems putting this item together. The dowels that are included should be longer. However, with the other bolts and pins that secure the shelves it seems like it will hold together well.
The amount of glue included was not enough to complete the project. I used additional wood glue toward the end. Either use the included glue very sparingly or have additional glue on hand.

Rated 1 out of 5�by Dawn Regret This Purchase
I put half of the bookcase together no problem. I got to the other side and the screws/holes were either too big or the screws were stripped. I wasn't about to take the thing apart and return it since the box was thrown away in the trash. I went to home depot for help. I got support brackets and some other stuff.
I will never make this purchase again!

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.
