Sturdy and Good Looking
P from Livonia, MI– Verified Buyer
The bookcase arrived quickly and was packaged well.
Charlie from Gray, KY– Verified Buyer
Absolutely love this bookcase! All solid wood, no particle board with veneer. I read some of the other reviews before making this purchase, and many complained that the instructions were hard to follow, but when it came, before I did anything I read the instructions thoroughly and even read them a second time, and found them very easy to follow. holding it all together while putting the sides on was a bit of a challenge, but I found that by using a tie down ratchet strap I could hold it together while adding on the sides.the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the locking pins have to be completely perfectly straight while assembling, or it can cause the wood to chip when you tighten it up. Other than that, love the bookcase!
Diane from Myrtle Beach, SC– Verified Buyer
I picked this bookcase because it was made of real wood and not a wood composite. So glad I did! It is nicely finished, the perfect size for my space and went together fairly easily, although I had to hold the shelves in place while my husband screwed it together. It looks great. Wish I could match a smaller case to this one as I still have loads of books. I would recommend this to anyone as it was easy to order, arrived quickly and with no damage. Thanks Wayfair for a great first time experience!
sturdy and nice looking plus functional
Patricia from Denver, CO– Verified Buyer
We bought this piece for our daughter's bedroom to hold her books and toys. It looks great is sturdy and holds a lot. Its the sort of piece that she will have for a long time as it is very functional and a good size. The only issue we had was a slight crack in the bottom shelf presumably from shipping. We did not bother to call about it as it is fairly minor and can be fixed with some wood glue. This was not difficult to assemble but did require two people for about 10 minutes until the one side board is in place.
Nice bookcase--a bit hard to put together
Elizabeth from Manlius, NY– Verified Buyer
I am with a lot of other reviewers who found this hard to put together. The reason is that the pieces are not all 100% symmetrical and so when one side fits, the other doesn't, causing the whole thing to easily fall apart in the process. Two suggestions: 1. work with 2 people-- don't even try to put it together by yourself, and 2. Use a work bench to raise it off the ground once you've got the base set. That will allow you to connect the sides pretty easily. If you are trying to connect the sides while it is on the ground or while you have laid it down, forget about it! Once you've got the first side on, the rest is a piece of cake. The final product is very nice and it a good size especially for the price.
Great for Vinyl Records
JEFF from GREENVILLE, WI– Verified Buyer
I was concerned that my vinyls wouldn't fit in here from a review which said the cubbies are 12"x12". They are in fact not and I was able to fit my records in here standing up with a couple of inches to spare. The piece is solid wood too and looks sharp.
Child's toy storage shelf
Clint from Wendell, NC– Verified Buyer
This shelf was exactly what I expected. It is solid with a great finish. Assembly was easy, but I am very experienced in tasks like this. Assembly only took me 15 minutes by myself in a garage with lots of area to lay out all of the pieces. Should not take anyone more than an hour to assemble using hand tools. I personally used a drill to expedite assembly. Every piece fits very tight so lining pieces up is more difficult with one person but can be done. I would recommend to everyone looking for a solid high quality wood shelf. I would purchase again and will purchase the same brand if I am in the market for any other shelves.
Love this book case
Coralle from Fort Collins, CO– Verified Buyer
This is a well built sturdy book case and looks great in my office. I gave it 4 stars because it was a pain to put together, but for the price and the quality I would take the pain of putting it together.
Excellent Bookcase With Quality Appearance and Craftsmanship
Greg from Chico, CA– Verified Buyer
This bookcase appears as shown on the website.....and it is very attractive and a nice value. It is well made, sturdy and ought to last many years. The wood tone is rich and dark. The nine cubbies provide ample room for a child's library. The two minor negatives were the poorly written directions which didn't denote front and back during assembly and the lack of hole covers so the metal tighteners wouldn't show (easily remedied).
I love this!
Eva from United States– Verified Buyer
This is a nice solid bookshelf and looks great! I had to dock a star because it did arrive with part of the trim broken off but I believe this happened during shipping. I was able to re-attach it using wood glue and it's perfect. I put it together myself which at times was awkward but still do-able with a little determination. I highly suggest using a cordless screwdriver for the 36 screws on the backing.
