Beautiful, well made, but assembly was not simple
Had I realized I had to assemble a solid-walnut bookcase at this price point, I wouldn't have purchased it. That said, there was no going back after delivery. It turned out beautiful and was exactly as described online. The butcher-block walnut construction is solid and beautiful. The screws and other hardware are quality, and there are no screws to be seen when completed. I have two kids and am expert in furniture assembly. Assembling the bookcase by myself took longer than I expected - 9 hours. I thought the directions were confusing - it was hard to tell which boards went where. The hardware comes with a hexi-tool, but you'll also need your own Phillips-head screw driver and regular screw driver. If you've never put together furniture before, call a friend to help you on this project. I bought this piece on sale, which made it competitively priced to similar quality/custom bookcases. The solid wood is heavy. I used two L brackets to secure to the wall, as recommended.
