Realspace� Magellan 12-Cube Bookcase, 63 9/16H x 46 1/10W x 15 3/5D, Espresso
This is a very nice bookcase. A little difficult to assemble. Requires at least two people. Instructions could be better. Punched holes in the side, as it was not clear how deep to put the wooden dowels. Left them half way, as some would go in all the way (disappear completely) and others would go in only so far. Instructions should be to insert dowels 2/3 into the holes. Other than the cracked side board, very nice product. Will hang something over the sideboard to hide cracks, as it way my fault they are there.

Once you figure out how to get started - follow the directions to put together all is well. They are beautiful and worth the time to assemble.

Fit and finish
If you're a stickler for fit and finish, then this product is not for you. It comes with many blemishes and a lot of minor scratches. It does however fit together well, in addition to being one of the better built particle board cabinets. Just don't look too hard.

Great Sewing Room Organizer
We recently ordered other Realspace Magellan products at work for our office area and was very impressed with the products we received. This bookcase was not what was needed at work but noticed it had a review from someone who used it to organize their sewing area. I ordered one for my sewing room and it's perfect! Liked it so much that I had room for another right beside it so ordered another along with the smaller matching bookshelf for another wall. What was a big mess of fabric and other sewing items is now a neatly organized area. It was such a great purchase! Also, we (two women) assembled all the items at work and I alone assembled the items ordered for home. The 12 cube shelf was too heavy to move alone after assembly so did enlist help with that.
