Cara MariAnna from Bellingham, WA
Shelf is made of good solid and attractive wood. It's nicely designed but a little unstable on carpet so you may want to attach it to the wall for safety. They do provide hardware for that purpose which is nice. I gave this a four start because there were no holes pre-drilled in the top and bottom shelves so I had to do it myself. That made assembly much more difficult and time intensive. Still, the unit went together nicely. Well worth the money. I was pleased enough to purchase a writing desk from the same manufacturer.
Great bookcase needs one modification
Robert from Quincy, MA – Verified Buyer
This is a great deal for the money but it needs a little modification. A lot of hardbound books are 9-1/2" tall and the spacing of the predrilled holes will only leave you with one shelf that will fit 9-1/2" tall books. I made a simple jig that let me drill 4 more holes that let me use 2 shelves for 9-1/2" books, the remaining two shelves are fine for 8-1/2" books. i also recommend gluing the upper and lower support rails to stiffen the bookcase.
A really great product
Dru from Fort Worth, TX – Verified Buyer
I was so pleased to find this unfinished bookcase and if I'm not happy with the finish I put on it, I'll have only myself to blame. This piece is sturdy, easy to put together and very good looking. Highly recommend it.
Andrea from Verona, NJ – Verified Buyer
The bookcase is solid wood. Very easy to put together in a short period of time. The directions were well written. My book case is completely full and still very solid.

Parawood takes beautiful finish
Art from East St Paul, MB – Verified Buyer
Before assembly I used Watco Danish oil to match shelf parts to existing furniture. Smooth unfinished Parawood absorbed stain beautifully. Then I finished with a top coat of urethane. Assembly was easy.
Sturdy and visually appealing unit
Lawrence from Middlesex, NJ – Verified Buyer
All components accounted for. Instructions were straightforward - be sure to read through before assembly. I used wood glue and pre-drilled holes for assembling top and bottom shelves. The unit is sturdy and visually appealing, with ample storage.
