    Terrible Build Quality, Unique Bookcase, May 27, 2010

    As echoed by other reviewers, this was the most frustrating piece of furniture that I’ve ever had the displeasure of putting together.

    Material quality is middling, instructions are poor, end product is middling, but it ends up looking pretty nice.

    I’m the type of person that other people come to when they can’t put furniture together and I still had MULTIPLE problems putting this together.

    1) For the descending pyramid shelves, there are 3 shorter pieces of varying sizes and 3 tall pieces all the same size (for the two left shelves).

    2) These three tall pieces have a “left-right-center” relationship that is not labeled, not clear, not indicated in the instructions.

    3) Furthermore the “center” piece has a “north-south” orientation that is not labeled, not clear, not indicated in the instructions (this is the inexcusable one)

    4) The screw-holes are not counter-sunk on the bottom or the top. I ended up partially counter-sinking the top screw-holes so I didn’t have dumb screws sticking 1/16″ out of the top with a sticker on top. On the bottom, I covered them with felt and plan on not dragging it across the floor.

    IF YOU DO BUY THIS:

    1) Separate the 3 tall pieces. Determine “left-right-center” by looking at the unfinished *back* of the bookshelf. There is a lap/groove that the cardboard back fits into. Make sure that the center piece has no raised lap/groove protrusions.

    2) Determine the “north-south” orientation of that “center” piece. I think the only way to determine this is with a damned tape measure. Make sure that the height from the bottom-most holes to the ground are consistent otherwise you will be disassembling the whole thing, popping the nails out of the back, forcing the glue off the top and bottom dowels, flipping, regluing, renailing the center piece and generally getting a lot more frustrated than necessary.

    There are similar products by IKEA that can get you a similar effect and are of a much higher general build quality.

    All that being said, the end product ends up looking fairly nice.

    It would be easy for this product to get four stars:

    1) Label the pieces vertical pieces: 1,2,3,4,5,6.

    2) Put an “up arrow” on piece #2.

    For five stars it would have to be made of more solid material and the shelves would have to fit better between the vertical supports.

    If you’d like to continue the pyramid effect, you can get the IKEA “Billy” 15″ wide shelf (these shelves are ~10″ wide) and slide to the left. There is a slight color variation but it’s in the same general tone and not very noticeable. This approximately doubles the amount of linear-feet of shelving if you have a lot of books. For *yet more* storage, you can make sure your ceiling permits it and get another Billy with the extra ~15″ tall top-extender. I haven’t had the need to go that far but it’s good to know there will be a good-looking option for expanding.

    I’ve seen this exact same bookcase go for $400. It is beautiful, sturdy, and contrasts wonderfully against my eggshell colored wall. I love it! The pieces weren’t always labled clearly so be careful when building. Also, make sure all the holes are level before you nail the back on! The middle of the three tallest boards have the same number of holes on the ends so just be careful. Instructions were fairly straight forward. Again, great price. Love it! 😀

    This review is from: Contemporary Home Office Cube Bookcase Display Shelves

    This piece looks nice once constructed. The dark brown finish is great!

    However from the description and pictures online, I was under the impression that the shelves were screwed into the walls of the unit- they are not. They simply rest on pegs. The shelves do not fit tightly- they slide in an out without any resistence.

    Also, the pieces have no sort of labeling system. You have to guess based on the pictures in the diagram which piece is which. The instructions have diagrams and they label pieces as “1,2,3” etc, however the actual pieces are not labeled, so it’s a guessing game.

    Hardly enough glue to properly secure the dowels. You really have to think ahead to make sure you don’t use up all the glue before finishing.

    In all, this piece could really scare a person upon arrival. I let it sit under my bed for 2 weeks and then I had my dad help me put it together. It really takes 2 minds to figure it out. Once you get going though, it’s easy to visualize. If you don’t have an eye for geometry and puzzles, this will be more than a challenge. Also, pay attention to how much it weighs. If you are aren’t used to moving heavy, awkward boxes, it will be difficult to get it to the room where you want to assemble it.
