The decorative molding that covers the edges of the two upper shelves is too short. It leaves exposed an unfinished particle-board edge of about half an inch at either end of the shelf. When I called Sauder to complain, they told me that I should take apart the moldings on the two sides of the bookcase and move them forward to cover the gaps. This is not easy to do and still doesn't entirely cover; plus no mention of any of this was in the instructions. Other than that, instructions are clear; assembly is fairly easy, though it helps to have someone strong to help because the bookcase is very heavy. Considering it's made to hold books, the weight limits on the shelves are small (25 pounds), but it seems sturdy and looks nice.
Sturdy and nice looking

We purchased 2 of these bookcases for our small spare room. They fit perfectly on either side of the window. I am mainly storing picture albums on the shelves. I can fit at least fifteen albums (the albums are approximately 8 3/4 inches high, 9 3/4 inches wide, and 2 inches thick, 200 photo count) across each shelve. They are sturdy and well made with the look of real wood. The wood color is a perfect medium brown. They require some assembly using just a hammer and a screwdriver. They are heavy. The FedEx man had a hard time dragging the boxes into the house. If Orchard Hills had a shorter book shelf to match, I would have purchased it also. The price is very reasonable for the quality of the product. Overall I am very happy with our purchase.

This came out great once we had it all put together but putting it together was a bit difficult. In order to put in some screws you had to be sitting inside the outer frame of the bookcase laying down and it's very uncomfortable and hard to maneuver. In addition, the fancy outer part of the shelves were a little hard to get it and because of that you see some of the underneath part since it's too hard to get it exactly in the right place. I do love the look though and it's great for decorative pieces or books and I keep photo albums underneath. Good buy.
I would recommend this product.

Time consuming to put together but very easy to complete. I'm a 5'1 female & built 3 cases on my own. Rated 4 stars because some pieces do not fit together exactly right but its not extremely noticeable when the unit is complete.

We purchased 2 of these Orchard Bookcases and they look fabulous in our new home. Style, solid, handsome and everyone who sees them cannot believe the VALUE!. How can anyone go wrong shopping at Wayfair, what you see is what you get!
Storage Needs Met!
Carolyn from Wallingford, CT – Verified Buyer
Purchased this bookcase to match the computer desk we purchased for our condo. It's surprising how much it holds and how well it provides the storage we needed in our "office space" limited to an area in our master bedroom. Wayfair, once again, supplied the items we needed for an easier transition to condo living!
Iris from Lutz, FL – Verified Buyer
I was surprised that it was not assembled since it didn't indicate assembly was required. But, once assembled I was more than pleased. It's sturdy and the adjustable shelves is a great feature, and it looks far more expansive than we paid for. It really looks great in my husband's office.
Robert from Roanoke, VA – Verified Buyer
Carefully followed instructions and it went together with no problems. Looks very nice, would never realize it came in so many pieces! Pros: Great value, easy assembly, looks good. Cons: Can't think of any.
Wendy from Rochester, NY – Verified Buyer
This bookcase is beautiful! It was exactly what I was looking for. It is sturdy and doesn't look junky like the ones you buy in the stores!
