Sauder HomePlus Basic Storage Cabinet – No mis-alignment for the doors!

Fairly solid piece of furniture for the price. I believe folks on here reporting issues with door alignment simply have no idea how to properly assemble this item considering that the hinges are highly adjustable and everything fit together nearly perfectly (the hardest part was getting the hinges screwed into the side walls). If you go slow, take your time during building, and check that everything is aligning correctly, you should have yourself a decent cabinet in under 4 hours thanks to the clear and detailed instructions (fyi, it’s a fairly heavy piece at 100lb, so you may need assistance building and positioning it). My only complaint is that the box showed up in a bit of a rough condition from ups shipping, and some of the wood panels are slightly damaged so i’ll need to use a furniture marker to cover up the rough spots.

We have absolutely no storage in our bathroom and this cabinet is perfect. Doesn’t take up too much room, but it holds a lot of stuff. Simple instructions and easy to assemble. It is probably a good idea to put one of the adjustable shelves in place while attaching the bottom shelf, this will ensure that everything lines up. After i put everything together, something was off and my adjustable shelves would not fit. I ended up taking the bottom shelf off and readjusting. Of course the doors did not line up correctly, but every screw on the hinge has a purpose, you just have to play around with them. I actually enjoy putting things together, so a little challenge is ok. Overall, it is well made and quite sturdy.

Like so many things in the amazon reviews. Like so many things in the amazon reviews, disregard the nay-sayers. This is not like your custom-made cabinets, this is inexpensive and gets the job done. It looks nice, puts together suprisingly easy, and holds all my tube-radio equipment. Here are the specifications for the Sauder HomePlus Basic Storage Cabinet:

No mis-alignment for the doors. The biggest thing i worried about after reading the reviews was that people said the doors won’t align properly. I just assembled mine, the doors look perfectly aligned without any adjustments. There’s a small gap between when the doors are closed though, so you can see the shelves. It’s a bit odd but i’m not super bothered. I attached pictures of finished cabinet, hope it’s helpful. Overall it’s well worth the price.

So close to great but falls slightly short -. I have put together my fair share of bookcases and cabinets. For the most part you get what you pay for. I needed 2 cabinets for pantry type use in my dining room. In the photos these matched the style and colors already in use. The price was comparatively reasonable. You cant expect hardwood hand crafted pre assembled products at this price point but there is an expectation of quality. I was skeptical so i order 1 to do a trial run. Package came from a 3rd party supplier quickly. It was big and heavy but i managed.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • No mis-alignment for the doors!
  • Couldn’t be happier!
  • Very nice piece of furniture.with excellent instructions.

We got three of these cabinets to put in our dining room. We work from home and need loads of storage for our products, and wanted something that looked elegant but could also be installed with baby locks so our toddlers couldn’t get in them. These are so perfect for what we needed.Installation was not too difficult either, and we really loved the fact that the parts were separated in compartments and labeled. Made it very easy to find what we needed. The boxes were very heavy, i felt bad for our ups driver, but they are very sturdy shelves and are perfect for what we wanted.

Great for a stand alone pantry. Took about an hour to put together – need a hammer and a screwdriver. Did come with a damaged shelf, but fortunately where it is located it is unnoticeable. Doors are not soft close, but i knew that going in :). Also – the doors don’t line up just right. All that being said, it was worth the price.

It is a solid piece and well put together. The instructions are easy to follow and they way the parts are laid out really does make it fool proof. I think it says to put together with two people. But i had this together in about 70 minutes by myself and i would not call myself a flat pack expert, i have done a few in my time. I have posted pictures of the way i laid the parts out before i started. And also the finished item with my stuff in it. It hold a lot and i got some cabinet storage that fit perfectly in this cabinet. I also put the hinges on the cabinet first then put the doors on.

Great great great company nice looking product. . This thing had to have yellow caution stickers on the packaging from ups. It’s a good sturdy so far unit. I put it together on my own but if you have help i would suggest using it. For those who said that the door handles do not line up. I found i got them to when i turned one of them upside down and re screwed it in. They are even now, so make sure when you’re putting it together you have them facing the same direction. The box was tightly packed together.

We purchased this cabinet via amazon after searching the internet. The cabinet arrived earlier than promised, so we were happy about that. My adult daughter helped me put the cabinet together, and overall, it went ok. There were a few minor problems during assembly. The first is when we put the rear ‘feet’ together with the bracing. You have to tap a holder into one of the holes, and then you hand screw in the leveler. When tapping in the holder, part of the plastic foot broke off. It is in the back, and it didn’t effect the cabinet, so i didn’t worry about it. The second minor issue was discovered when we flipped the cabinet over to nail on the back cardboard.

Love the size and they have worked well for us. We now own 2 of these cabinets. Love the size and they have worked well for us. The doors are the trickiest part to put together, but with a little adjusting of the screws as suggested in the instructions they fit great.

Love this cabinet, got to use as a pantry and it works perfect. I actually lit together all by myself, and used the recommendation of other reviewers to put the door hinges on the cabinet first. A little dificult getting the doors on, but overall went well.Loved that all the pre cut and drilled holes were matched up perfectly. Also love that it was a product made in the usa. Detailed instructions with pictures were very easy to follow. Definitely recommend this cabinet.

Theres a big gap between the doors. I don’t know if i installed it wrong or something. Some parts came chipped, but it’s in the inside and not noticeable. Took some time to put it together. I didn’t like the part when installing the feet, you need a long neck screw driver, long enough so you can reach to the end of the hole which is about 3 inches to screw it in, therefore you can’t use any screw drivers that has an obstructions like a socket or interchangeable head screw driver because it can’t fit in the hole. I bought this to use at a pantry for my kitchen and it’s been working great. It’s very heavy even though it’s not real wood. The color is just like the image on the computer and it matches my kitchen cabinets perfectly.

This is a high-quality piece of furniture and it is well packaged for shipping. I was nervous at the state it showed up in until i realized it was theadditional packaging around the box there to protect it during shipment that was damaged. I fall short of a five-star review because it was difficult to assemble. Not by the instruction but by how the pieces fit together. You need a lot of patience to get the doors to properly fit and don’t even get me started on the effort it takes to get the handles on without being loose. Once it is put together it is a great piece. Very aesthetically pleasing.

Bought this for my sister’s salon and she loves it. She’s able to hold all of her beauty products in this cabinet and then some.

Like a few others have said. Like a few others have said, we couldn’t get the doors to quite line up right. It drives my husband crazy that it’s not perfectly lined up, but it doesn’t bother me as much as him. I think part of the reason it doesn’t line up is because he had some trouble attached the top piece to the side pieces–one of the pieces just didn’t fit right. Otherwise i love the storage space it provides, but i do wish it was a little sturdier. All in all, i think it’s a fair product for the price and the size is right.

This cabinet is spacious and fairly nice looking. It was a bit of a challenge to fill ours up, and the room looks so much nicer now. Both doors open smoothly and line up fairly well. Like all composite wood furniture, this cabinet isn’t built to last the ages, but it is pretty sturdy. Ours did arrive with a cracked trim piece, but it’s still very functional and doesn’t look that bad.

Sauder Carson Forge Panel TV Stand : excellent product

Took me about 2 hours to assemble with the great instructions. If you identify the pieces out, and organize the hardware, sure helps to make it go smoothly. Make sure you follow the directions step by step. Rather easy to assemble, as others have said, putting the hinges and doors on was the hardest part. Beautiful piece of furniture, be aware that the washington cherry color looks more like med.

I really like our tv stand from sauder. I really like our tv stand from sauder. We have the forge-lift top coffee table (i have also written a review on this), and they match perfectly. Considering the price, it is good quality and so far has held up nicely. Unfortunately, it arrived with one of the boards broken, but my husband was able to use wood glue to fix it. It wasn’t a noticeable board, so not a big deal. There were also some scratches on the tv stand, which did bother me at first. They are nothing i notice going about my day though. I am marking it down a star for those reasons, but other than that i would recommend it.

Wow i really love it is so beautiful. Wow i really love it is so beautiful. My brother put it together for me. I lost my husband on june 21 so i decided to buy a few new things. The color is nice looking it was worth the money. Its sturdy and love the glass front it holds alot to. I never had a tv stand before my husband didnt like them but i love this one.

This entertainment center is very nice looking when put together. It was well packaged, with reinforced edges on the box, which i think saved it from being damaged as the box was beat up. The instructions are easy to follow if you’re familiar with sauder furniture, if not then assembly might be a little difficult. All the pieces were there and all the cut outs for the hardware lined up perfectly. The color is nice but i wouldn’t call it cherry, more like a mahogany. One thing i don’t like, which is never mentioned, is the depth just barely allows for a surround receiver to fit. They should have added a few more inches front to back. I hade to make a 14″x6″ cut out on the backing to accommodate the wires. Also, to get the receiver in, the door had to be removed.

  • I love this product!

Looks great in my home, great storage. I am loving my new tv stand by sauder. I chose the carson forge tv stand in the washington cherry color. This tv stand is great quality. I love the look of the wood grain, it’s the redish brown color with the darker blackish grain running through it. This tv stand accommodates our 60 inch flat screen tv perfectly. We have a sound bar that fits in front of it. On the first shelf which is open and no dividers we have our xbox one, the kinect and out set top cable box all right next to each other. Below behind the glass cabinet doors are 2 adjustable shelves. We have our games and dvd;s on the left side and some gaming accessories on the right side.

Thought i had reviewed this already, 3rd sauder piece i have gotten for the living room, well built, go it together ok, nice addition to the living room, much better than what we previously had.

Budget friendly, looks good. It’s hard to find real hardwood furniture at a reasonable cost – we sacrificed having hardwood for just having something and this worked out real nice. Got the matching coffee table too. Assembled both in about 2hrs. Use a screwgun on lowest torque setting. I will vent mine on the bottom shelf to keep electronics from over heating when the doors are closed. An xbox and an amp/receiver tend to heat up quickly without proper ventilation. So i guess that’s the only downfall?.

Took me about 2 hours to assemble with the great instructions. If you identify the pieces out, and organize the hardware, sure helps to make it go smoothly. Make sure you follow the directions step by step. Rather easy to assemble, as others have said, putting the hinges and doors on was the hardest part. Beautiful piece of furniture, be aware that the washington cherry color looks more like med.

Bought when moved in new apartment. Was not difficult to put together.

You get what you pay for, good value. . For the price, you can’t beat it. Be advised that the color is darker than what appears in the pictures. Some points to consider1) this thing is heavy particleboard. I put it together myself but i can also bench press 300 pounds. Those of low strength will definitely need some assistance. 2) make sure to identify all the parts and pieces before you put it together. You can’t pull a typical male macho “i don’t no directions man”. You have to follow the directions very carefully. 3) it will take some time to adjust the doors. It can be rather frustrating, be prepared for that. 5) it will take you about 2-4 hours to put it together. Don’t rush, as the veneer is very easily scratched if you get careless. 6) if you buy it expecting a stand that is of nc handmade furniture quality, you’re an idiot.

Lovely when built, door hinges are a pain. Everything seemed to be going fine until we started putting on the doors. The hinges were brutal to line up properly and not have the door “wiggle” up and down a little. Honestly, we were worried about stripping the screws because the pre-drilled holes weren’t deep enough to accommodate the screws supplied with the product so we had to deepen them before we could even attempt to put the hinges on, and even now there is a decent gap between the hinge side and wall side of the right door. We’re not going to play with it any further as we don’t want to incur unnecessary and irreparable damage. That aside, the design is very nice and it’s made of a durable wood product. I’d recommend this product insofar as the manufacturers consider redesigning the hinge mechanism. It’s more aggravating than its worth in that instance, but i do love how it looks now that it’s built.

The size is perfect for my 40″ tv and my living room. The size is perfect for my 40″ tv and my living room. I have 3 devices (cable box, streaming media box, dvd player) that all fit on the open shelf. Assembly was a little time-consuming, as is assembling furniture in general, but wasn’t difficult, as the instructions are clear and illustrated well. This is the 4th piece of sauder carson washington cherry finish furniture i bought, and i’m as satisfied with it as the other 3 pieces.

This is a great item for the price. This is a great item for the price. I needed some inexpensive furniture for my apartment. It was a little bit of a pain in the butt to put it together however that’s what you get when you order furniture that needs to be put together.

Easy assembly, although a bit time consuming. Total construction time was 2. 5 hours, mostly due to me working alone. It will go faster if you have a helper. As others have mentioned – do yourself a favor and open all the screws, fasteners, etc and sort them into individual tupperware containers as step 1. Aesthetically, it looks fine, especially considering it’s flat-pack furniture. I ended up needing to cut a venting hole in the back because the cabinets trap a lot of heat. That’s true for any closed cabinet furniture, so i don’t consider it a negative for this specific cabinet.

If you’re looking for a piece of solid wood furniture this is not for you. It is made of particle board. But having said that, it is a really nice piece of furniture for the price. I spent many months looking for living room furniture was of the craftsman style, which i consider this to be. Anything made of real wood is a definite work of art and close to if not over $1800. This stand works well for me. It wasn’t super easy to put together but if you read the instructions closely it can be done. I’m a 65 year old woman and was able to put it entirely together by myself. The only mishap i had is that one of the hinges for one door was frozen and would not work.

This is an attractive tv stand. I don’t think it looks like real wood grain when you get close, but for the price you can’t complain. It is darker than it appears in the photo. It took my husband and 12 year old grandson (the lego king), about 2 hours to put together. They had a good time doing it. It’ s helpful to assemble it on a table they said. That way you avoid the knee and back pain that you get when you do it on the floor. It fits our 40 inch tv nicely with a few inches to spare.

Best choice for consumer assembled furniture. Sauder has the art of consumer assembled furniture down to a science. They have the best written instructions i’ve ever seen accompany a consumer product. Everything is accurately predrilled and well thought out. When you are done, you have a beautiful piece of furniture. If you need some nice furniture at a reasonable cost, this the way to go.

Wow i really love it is so beautiful. Wow i really love it is so beautiful. My brother put it together for me. I lost my husband on june 21 so i decided to buy a few new things. The color is nice looking it was worth the money. Its sturdy and love the glass front it holds alot to. I never had a tv stand before my husband didnt like them but i love this one.

Nice piece of furniture, attractive and functional, perfect for our needs. Packaged well, easy to assemble and accurately made – every single hole and attachment point aligned exactly. Would recommend this seller.

Very good product, excellent directions, less -than -adequate packaging. The tv stand looks very nice and is well made. It took about three hours to assemble, not counting a half-hour lunch break. It helped to read over the entire directions first, get everything laid out and all parts accounted for, then proceed slowly and carefully. My one complaint has to do with its packaging: the top of the stand defines the size of the packaging. This piece is on the bottom of the box and is the last piece to be removed. Unfortunately someone had set the box down hard on its side, or dropped it on its side, damaging the front edge (of course) of the top. At that point in the process there was no way i was going to repackage the whole thing and try to send it back (all 86 pounds of it). We were able to disguise the damage fairly well with a dark brown sharpie (permanent marker). The casual observer will not notice the damage unless we call it to his/her attention.

I was very impressed with the accuracy of the cuts and predrilled holes and overall fit of this stand. It did take about an hour to put together but only because i was watching the how to video and taking time to make it perfect. Maybe i was just lucky but i didn’t even have to adjust the doors when it was complete. They fit perfectly with exact 1/8′ gaps all around. I have to hand it to sauder on this one for fit, looks and strength.

Bought when moved in new apartment. Was not difficult to put together.

Sauder Carson Forge Side Table : Great quality. Very clear and easy assembly.

Looks great, nice functional piece. I am loving my new side tables by sauder. I chose the carson forge side table in the washington cherry color. Initially i ordered just one, and liked the table so much i decided to add another to my family room. This side tables are great quality. I love the look of the wood grain, it’s the red-ish brown color with the darker blackish grain running through it. My side table accommodates my laptop perfectly, as well as some extra space for drinks and a decorative dish. There is a pull out tray right below the top front lip. There’s an open top shelf, and 2 shelves behind the cabinet door for hidden storage.

Make sure shelf door stop hole is at the front. . I needed another nightstand for my bedroom. It looks very nice with my oak bedroom furniture. I put it together pretty much by myself. I’m a 65 year old female without much carpentry experience. The only real problem i ran into was that towards the beginning of the assembly it instructed me to put on the top shelf. Then towards the final steps it said to place the door stop in the hole under the bottom of the top shelf. So i looked for the whole and found it was at the back end of the shelf.

I have come to appreciate sauder furniture for it’s very high quality and comprehensive instructions with bits of good old humor sprinkled throughout the instructions. I can’t stress this enough about the instructions. The person who wrote and illustrated the assembly instructions had a comprehensive grasp of the english language and thorough understanding of the product. So nice to see an example of “made in america” value. There are lots of this type of furniture on the market, much of which comes from china, and the difference between that junk and sauder quality is striking. From now on, if i have a need for this type of furniture and it isn’t made by sauder, i’ll pass.

Beautifuljust what i wanted. I got this table delivered on wednesday. . Started the assembly of it the next day. I wanted to do it myself without help from my husband. It went slow because i am a read all the steps first kind of person, and i wanted to be sure every part was included in the box, which was the case. Hubby was out doing his thing in the garage, and i began to get with the project. I am a petite person, senior, so i had to be careful with the weight of the pieces. They are all heavy, but i worked methodically and focused. It took me on and off most of the day. I stopped in between to do other things though.

This took us a long time to assemble partially because the instructions lead you by alphabetical stickers, and about half of the table parts did not have the alphabetical stickers affixed to them. If you’re used to assembling things like this, it probably wouldn’t be a huge issue, however, if you aren’t, well, it is. We assembled it on carpeting to avoid scratching the finish. From a distance, the table looks nice and stylish. But when you’re right next to it, you can see how cheap the finish is, but in all fairness, you’re not paying a lot of money for this either. If you’re planning to use this a lot, i suspect the thin paper-like finish is going to show wear and tear very easily and very quickly. And if you have kids playing around it or banging into it, lots of luck. By all means, use coasters every time that you put a glass on it, and keep it away from any liquid or moisture. Unlike wood, if it get scratched, you have no recourse to touch up the finish as you would with wood.

Sturdy and expensive looking. Took about 4 hours to assemble after checking to make sure all parts with it. Instructions fairly easy to follow-read twice before starting. Would advise doing step 10 putting slide rails on for slide out shelf first to make screw grooves, cause once you do step 9 putting top of table on its much easier then to reach inside and put screws back in shelf rail and secure tightly. I put my slide rails on first, then realized had to remove to tighten cam locks for table top. I used elmer’s wood glue to strengthen the table top attaching since i read a review that said table top would come off when picking up and moving table. Was glad i had put slide rails on even though i had to remove to put table top on, because reaching back inside table top to attach screws for rails already having the screw grooves made it was much easier than if i had not made them. The door alignment was kinda hard to understand on how to adjust, would recommend screwing the hinges on sides of table before assembled just to make screw grooves so once table is together it would make attaching door much easier.

Not as difficult as i expected. . After reading reviews i decided to try them but was worried the assembly would be a nightmare. So the table arrives & my 7 year old, 18 month old & 4 month old poodle all “helped”. My husband is on a work trip so no adult help. I was able to put it together fairly easily considering my helpers. I just followed the directions closely. I think i spent about 2 hours on the table & i love it. I ordered 2 and the second came the following day. With a nap, wii & crate taking care of my “helpers” i completed the second one in about 45 minutes.

Great table, takes a while to put together. This took quite a while to put together, even if you’re great at furniture projects like this. There are lots of parts, but once it’s together it looks really great. Even though it has laminate instead of real wood, it looks real enough to pass from a short distance. If i have a drink or am eating dinner in front of the tv, the shelf is a perfect way to make more room. The back has punch out sections for cords if you put anything electric in the cabinet, so it would be great to hide a cable or internet receiver. But the back panel is just a thick cardboard with wood laminate, so that part makes it look little cheap if the back isn’t pushed up against the wall. All in all, it’s a great table, but be warned that this will need lots of floor space and will take a couple of hours to put together.

Really love it and have had many compliments on it. In fact have had people not believe me when i said i assembled it. Only thing was it is a few shades darker than it looked in the picture. Liked the option of being able to open the door from either side when assembling. One suggestion, if you buy this do not think it will be a 20 minute assembly. It took me a good while, but that is one reason it is solid.

Arrived quickly and securely packaged. Total assembly time was three hours including checking for all parts and damage. Directions were clear and easy to follow. Easy enough for one person to assemble but as this piece is heavy once assembled, it wouldn’t hurt to have help available. A philips screwdriver and hammer are all that’s needed for assembly. Sliding shelf, adjustable shelf and door round out this solid, affordable piece of furniture. Wiped down with furniture polish after assembly and it looks great. Would definitely recommend this product.

Looks fantastic with my coffee table in. Looks fantastic with my coffee table in the same line. Also, like the coffee table- using a drill very carefully is fine and saves tons of time. Sturdy, well functioning, lovely. 5 hrs and i’m a little handy so be sure to set aside some time unless you have help. You’ll need a short-handled philips for sure.I only had one with a long handle which was frustrating to get into small places.

We bought two of these for our living room. Assembly wasn’t too bad on these. They didn’t take very long at all. The pull out shelf is great for drinks or a book. Because it is a cheap set and the top is just laminate, make sure that you use coasters on them. They are a great set for the price and much sturdier than we expected. The metal plates do look a little cheap in the pictures and don’t look at all like that in person.

It looks very nice and sturdy. It wasn’t missing any pieces and came very quickly. The only thing i don’t like about it is that there is a small gap between the door and the side. I can deal with it, bc the rest of it is great.

Beautiful, solid, a great value. They were packaged well, easy to assemble (all the holes lined up perfectly), and are even more beautiful than the photo on the box. I bought two, and put them both together in about three hours. The slide-out shelf moves smoothly and sturdily. I really love metal corner details and knobs. It’s a sturdy piece of furniture at a great price. I also got the matching tv stand, and it is of the same high quality. The style is exactly what i wanted in my early colonial living room.

Sauder-5 stars, amazon-1 ridiculous return policy was the issue here over something that was missing. This is a cute little table that fits perfectly in my smaller apartment. After an hour of putting this together we realized that we were missing the reinforced card board backing. After much looking around on amazon’s website, i actually found a way to speak to someone. I didn’t want to return it just for a missing part. They informed me that they could not order missing parts and that i had to send it back to have it replaced?. Amazon that’s the best you can do?. They wanted me to disassemble it, box it up and wait for ups to come on my day off, almost a week later to pick it up just so i can wait another week and rebuild it all over again. We already had a second one to build and the matching tv stand. They offered a 15 % discount if i wanted to keep it with out the back. Kind of defeats the purpose of buying something with a cabinet door if everything will fall right out the back. I decided to contact sauder and started a chat with one of their customer service reps. Within three minutes i already had the piece on order, no charge and shipped via expedited shipping.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture. The assembly was very straight-forward with the detailed instructions–that included clear illustrations as well. Together with my husband, we probably assembled the unit in under an hour. My two knocks against the piece are the following:1) the small nails used on the back of the piece to attach the back facade are silver (instead of black) so are visible (though they are so small it’s not a detractor). Black still would be better. The pre-made holes for installing the pull-out molding to the sliding shelf were askew, so the runners don’t align perfectly with the shelf. It’s not noticeable (visually), but does detract from the ease of sliding the shelf in and out. As i like to be exact when i’m constructing from things, this was a detractor.

This unit has some of the best, friendliest instructions i’ve yet encountered for ready-to-assemble furniture. It appears to be the first piece of furniture ever where the directions are written in native english instead of translated. (the directions even have some actually-quite-funny jokes, so have fun with that. ) the one caveat is that as with so much furniture, i wish they would have you attach drawer rails and door hinges to the interior cramped spaces **before** you assemble the outer frame. I would recommend reading the full directions first and modifying as needed. Also, be very careful to place the interior shelf the correct direction, with the holes for the door stop in front. I didn’t until it was too late (i. The cardboard back was already attached), and i had to drill my own hole for the door stop.

Sauder carson forge side table – good at under $100. Review of:sauder carson forge side table, washington cherry finishskip to point ‘4 – finish’ for the only real complaint if you dont need all the other details. Pros:great price, easy assembly for intermediate builders, strong structural construction, great appearance (see cons for finish issues)cons:paper thin surfacing is easily scratched and not so easy to cover up or mend. Door hinges are good quality but very hard to “tweak” for the perfect alignment. Top shelf drawer did not sit straight in either unit. I have broken the full review into 4 sections, packaging, assembly, fit and finish. At the header of each section i have a rating on a 1 – 5 scale with 1 being the best grade and 5 being the worst. I assembled two of these in under 2 hours. For the record i’m very handy with tools and furniture builds having apprenticed for several years as a cabinet maker. I have scratch built numerous furniture pieces over the years as well as having assembled countless prefab pieces like these.

Decent table, and a good value, with some reservations. . I’ve bought a number of end tables from amazon, and have been quite satisfied — they’ve all been made by ashley, until this one. My son and i carefully and slowly put it together, and it took us about 45 minutes. The instructions were the best i’ve ever encountered – -clear, and very on-target. No missing or damaged parts, and it was packed well. The product itself is, i believe, particle board, with veneer covering. And that’s ok, but i’ve gotten used to ashley’s hardwood construction, and while the ashley tables are a tad more expensive, i believe that ashley is perhaps a better quality (and i recognize that the ashley products are made in china, and sauder carson is made in the united states- -at least that is what is represented to the consumer, and i personally would like to support an american company, if possible). The one major negative is that the door itself did not line up properly, and there is a space on one end that shouldn’t be there. The door doesn’t fit evenly, and that’s after using the exact construction directives, fitting protocols and supplied parts. Bottom line: i would recommend this product, with some reservations based on the door fit.

It came in the afternoon so i did 1/2 of it that day and completed it the next. You only need a hammer (just for the back–18 nails) and a phillips screwdriver, but a mallet would be better than the hammer for a few of the parts–to avoid risk of damage. It’s got some solid wood parts (e. The legs), some metal fittings, and a cardboard back, but most of it is pressed board with a rather lovely veneer. It’s pretty solid and heavy when put together. The best part is the instructions. I’ve put together quite a few pieces such as this one in the past, but these were the clearest instructions i’ve ever had. Lots of pictures as well as the verbal descriptions. You do have to pay attention to the details, however. The screws are in different colors and lengths as specified in both the parts list and the step-by-step instructions. There are guide holes for virtually all the small parts. It was an easy assembly except for the front door–whose hinges need to be manually adjusted so that the door doesn’t rub when it’s opened/closed. The instructions do tell you how to do it, but it’s back and forth till you get it right.

Sauder Palladia Library, Heavy, labels missing but not hard to asemble

Each one dinged up from shipping, about 4-5 hr to assemble. I bought three of these which took about 4-5 hours each to assemble. Every one of them had some kind of shipping ‘ding’ in it and once you get it all out of the box trying to return is a hassle. I don’t like the top piece which covers the top 3. 5 inches of your books making it difficult to remove them. They do look nice, but plan on buying stain to cover the dings.

This bookshelf unit is not super high-end, but it is not priced that way either. It is a good product for the money, solid and nice-looking. It matches the other sauder palladia products well. The unit arrived with some shipping damage, but amazon got this squared away with a replacement swap quickly. My wife is happy, so i am pleased.

This bookshelf is quite beautiful. It is very heavy and sturdy. As other commenters pointed out, we did also have one broken piece. It was one of the rounded decorative moldings, so i was able to finish putting the piece together and now waiting for the replacement part to arrive. Called sauder and they were wonderful. Glad i had read reviews and knew that other people had been successful with this. 5 hours for me to put this together by myself, but i am pretty good at putting this kind of stuff together.

Just like the picture and perfect for our office. The unit took a couple of hours to assemble, but we love the way it looks.

Extremely nice library bookcase. Purchased 4 of these units to make a library wall. Extremely well made; all the holes were in the right places and the right size, all hardware was supplied and of good quality. They take a while to assemble, but the instructions are good, and the hole placements in the parts keep you from possibly mistaking one part for another, during assembly they are very heavy. Strongly recommend fastening to the wall with hardware supplied, as it they tipped; not a good thing.

Cherry color is dark, more like mahogany. The instructions were pretty good and everything matched up and fit well. No trees were damaged in the making of this product. But a comparable product made out of real wood is close to ten times the price.

Heavy, labels missing but not hard to asemble. As many reviewers mentioned, the package for pretty heavy. But the individual pieces were brittle. While arranging the pieces for assembling, two pieces collided with each other and one of them got chipped. Many pieces were missing labels, but the pictures on the assembling instructions were helpful in the guessing game. The pieces stuck to each other very well and the final product looked so professional. I might buy again from this manufacturer.

The bookcase looks really nice. I didn’t have any scratched pieces. Assembling the unit took about three hours (by myself). Most of the pieces were not labeled, which made it take longer to put together. The only thing i don’t like is the fold seam down the middle of the back panel. Once i get my books on the shelves, you shouldn’t be able to see it as much though. The shelves sit on small pegs that can easily be moved up or down.
