The natural grain and beauty of the wood is enhanced by a multi-step, hand rubbed Burnish finish. Vertical fluting and dentil molding further add character and aesthetic appeal. The Bookcase features five adjustable shelves and two fixed for storage. Arrives fully assembled.

Wary Buyer  “Takes forever to get out of the very strong carton it’s in (I used a serrated knife and ran it down the LONG side; the short side is too stapled). Then I had to put them together. Nothing is difficult about this, but it took me three days to figure out the serrated knife idea (I tried a crowbar, too, which didn’t work). This is very heavy, to boot. And it takes all day to put them together. The wood is very nice (or whatever it is; I rather wish I’d gotten the darker, although the lighter is perfect with my floors). I recall there was one or two screws or edges (whatever they are called) that didn’t come with this but the shelves fit anyway. I put both of mine on the landing facing each other, which is perfect. I did alot of research into what is available and read the reviews; truly these are not as hard to put together as some. I do think for the price, quality, and time-efficiency in putting together they are the best you might find.

 

Bill Grage “We bought 4 of these units for our library. They come partially pre-assembled (shelves are held together at the bottom of the unit) so putting it up was breeze. The bookcases are well made, solid, and nicely finished. While the units are not a full hardwood, they do have some hardwood pieces, hardwood veneers, and the particle boards used in cores are very nice density. We expect the units to last decades and they look great!

 

 

VA Mom  “We got three of these bookcases for our new home. I loved the look of them when I first spotted them online. When they arrived at our home, they looked even better. The fact that they are smooth on the sides makes it very easy to get the built-in look. These are very tall (84″), so I wanted to secure them to the wall. Instead of using the enclosed securing kit, I opted to buy Quakehold! furniture straps. We also bought a pair of decorative furniture bolts at Home Depot, in order to secure our bookcases together at the top. One of the units seems to be just tiny bit shorter than the other two, by about 1/8″ but is hardly noticeable. Buying these units from amazon.com got us a great delivery experience, with set up and removal of packing material. I recommend it.
