- A nicely made and good looking desk that felt stable when completed. The instructions were fairly straightforward but needed attention to detail if one was not used to assembling this type of furniture. Nothing was missing and only a screwdriver was required to perform the assembly.
- In view of the type of material used in this product I felt that more adhesive should have been provided as it tends to soak quickly into the board and resulted in a poorer glue joint. There wasn`t very much glue work to do but a greater amount of adhesive would have effected stronger joints, particularly on the top.
The rear stretcher board was oversize and when correctly positioned it projected above the other top rails by about 1-2mm. As a retired cabinet maker I was able to skim this projection off the top of the stretcher so that the top sat flat in relation to the other top edges of the drawer unit and the right hand end/leg. Not a big issue but without doing this the top would have not seated properly . The end result was however very pleasing.
