great cabinet for the price
boppy from fountain hill pa.
great sewing desk/cabinet. went together easily with no problems. cons. have a container of wood glue handy because the 2 tubes they supply run out quickly.DO NOT USE GORILLA GLUE OR SIMILIAR PRODUCTS AS THEY WILL MAR THE FINISH !. if there is a problem with a sticking drawer on the bottom swap the drawer with another one as there is enough play in the drawers to solve the problem.i am going to paint the insides of the drawers and any raw wood surfaces to seal in any outgassing of glue chemicals.remember that this cabinet is made of particleboard. DO NOT PAINT THE DRAWER SLIDES!. also i am going to paint the drawer pulls to give the cabinet a better appearance. these are not necessarily cons but helpful suggestions in assembly & improving the looks & functuality of a great low price desk/cabinet.

The design of this piece is very ingenious, and just what I was looking for--providing drawer space in a relatively narrow piece of furniture, but also able to provide a larger temporary work space surface when needed. I was originally dismayed when I saw the way the drawers were constructed, and the design of the drawer "tracks," which are merely small strips of MDF board that the drawers rest on. Also, there are no drawer catches. Put I've found that the drawers slide well, and fit snugly into their spots, so there is little risk of pulling a drawer all the way out, unless you REALLY aren't paying attention. The downside, which is temporary--much of the construction involves gluing various pieces together with the "two" little plastic bags of wood glue, although there was only one in the kit. Like others have commented, I used my own wood glue--for the quantity needed, and also it was easier to control placement of the glue than squeezing glue out of a plastic bag. I found the gluing process to be VERY messy. After applying glue and putting each joint together, you need to wipe off the excess glue that squeezes out of the joint, or it will dry in hard lumps, and in the case of the drawer slides, interfere with the sliding of the drawers. I went through about four rolls of paper towels doing this, and got glue all over my clothes (work clothes, luckily). I suppose a rag might work OK if you rinse it frequently in a bucket of water. Otherwise, make sure you have lots of paper towels handy. The plastic handles that came with the unit looked really junky, but I found compatible handles at a reasonable price. In spite of the challenging construction process, I find the piece useful, conveniently designed, and I haven't found any other functionally similar piece of furniture available. I expect it to be a very useful piece of furniture. Whether it will hold up in the long term remains to be seen, of course, but I'm hopeful!
Not so good experience
Maurice from Ypsilanti, MI – Verified Buyer
The desk came with black plastic drawer handles instead of the silver pictured. False advertising! Two of the 5 drawers were damaged or defective. Only two of the 6 wheels had a locking mechanism and on one of the 2 wheels the lock was broke off. I have tried without success to contact Venture for the replacement parts. The customer service line was busy on all but one occasion when I called. The one time I got through I had to leave a voice message, that has yet to be returned. I emailed the help desk, that has yet to be answered. I even called the corporate office only to be hung up on several times by the automated system. Very unhappy and disappointed with Venture Enterprises!!!! Re3ally at a lost about what to do.

HEY LADIES, WOULD ALSO MAKE A GREAT MAKEUP TABLE...LOTS OF SPACE FOR ALL "OUR" MAKEUP !!
David from Austin, TX – Verified Buyer
Love the desk. The look and design are just what we were wanting. Assembly wasn't too bad at all. I do have a problem with one of the drawers. It has those little rails that the drawer slides on and on this one drawer I don't see where to install the rails. It's fine though. We're loving the desk.

This is great for me since I constantly like to redecorate it works perfect. I have a pc of plexi glass to put on top for when I a, working with solder to keep the table clean of any flaws
Stephanie from Beach Lake, PA – Verified Buyer
I live in a smallish apartment, so this folding desk was absolutely perfect for me. You always get the added storage space of the drawers and a full desk when you need it! Putting it together was a bit annoying, but doable.
