Rated 5 out of 5�by OCDShopper Heavy-weight and Sturdy
I got this bookcase to hold all of my heavy legal books. I contacted HON to confirm that this shelf could actually hold 100pounds per shelf. I have at least 60 pounds of books on this shelf and I don't have any problems.
The bookcase is very sturdy. The engineered wood is of excellent quality. The back panel is made of board and is thick as well.
Assembly was easy. I assembled it alone and it took me 2 hours. (I was really taking my time.) Since it is pretty heavy, having someone else to help you would be ideal. I also recommend using a power screwdriver. Oh, and the instructions are wrapped in the back panel. I thought they hadn't included the instructions until I looked there.
I have no complaints. I would definitely purchase this item again. It's well worth the higher price.
