Nice looking piece that went together easily! from MA on 01/11/2014 – Verified Buyer
This piece was very easy to assemble and has a really nice quality look and feel to it. Once built it's sturdy and has a nice look. If you are looking for something to go with finer furnishings in a room, this will really fit in and not look cheap, even though it's not an expensive piece. It is well worth the money. Also, if you don't like the look of the cross braces in the back you don't have to use them, we didn't since we were putting it against a wall and it is still very sturdy! Also the top lowers and it can be used as a standard bookshelf if you prefer. (Thats not clear in the description)

Attractive, good quality, and functional from Whittier, CA on 06/14/2012 – Verified Buyer
I found the quality of the unit to be very good. It is pretty sturdy and doesn't seem cheap. The sides and top are hardwood (solid so far as I can tell), while the shelves are plywood with veneer. There are a couple of minor chips in the veneer on the shelves but they are very small and unnoticeable. I actually wanted this for an unorthodox use. I wanted to have a decent looking piece of furniture that would do double-duty as an occasional mini standing-desk only for reading and laptop work. Tilted is good for reading (it has two tilt positions), while flat for the laptop. Something that didn't look like a desk but that I could work on when I needed to. The height was exactly as stated here, but I had hoped (but couldn't be sure until seeing it) that the construction would be such that I could put spacers under the top to raise it a bit since my preferred standing work height is a little bit higher. After it arrived I could see this strategy would work. So I purchased four 1.5 inch square hardwood blocks at a woodworking outlet, drilled holes through them and stained them dark, and purchased longer 6 mm bolts than the standard ones that fasten the top to the legs. In this way I raised the top for a few bucks without making it ugly, and now have a shelf that is my perfect height for standing reading/laptop use when I don't want to sit. But this unit is way more attractive than anything I could have made myself for the purpose. The order processing and shipping was very fast, and assembly wasn't too hard but takes some patience as does anything like this. I think the design is very good.

Nice display piece from Valley Village, CA on 08/30/2014 – Verified Buyer
My husband had been looking something like this to put in the corner of his office. I bought it for a Christmas gift and was able to carry and assemble the bookstand myself. Its nice pretty stable...there were a few nicks in the finish but when putting it together I turned the pieces to the underside and it worked out.

Exactly what I needed from Spring, TX on 03/31/2015 – Verified Buyer
The Podium bookcase is perfect! I use it in my office to hold my Bible and all of my books that pertain to the interpretation of Scripture. It is solid and dignified. Many have already commented on it when they come into my office. Pros: Easy assembly, great value, durable and solidly built. Cons: none

We're using this as a guest book holder in a healthcare setting. The piece seems very sturdy and solid wood
