Altra Furniture Altra Elmwood Double Pedestal Desk : very pleased. Easy to assemble though putting the shelves on

I put it jointly by myself with a compact handheld drill and a screw driver. Took one/2 hour and a glass of wine. I use this desk as a make-up station in my toilet. It’s very simple, elegant and best.

Appears to be far better than the pics. Desk was straightforward to put together, none of the usual holes drilled incorrect or products that failed to line up. Appears to be like great in the modest location that i couldn’t in good shape a great deal of nearly anything else in (wall about 2 feet vast) depth just transpires to match up with the pillar on the other aspect of the doorway way. Color is on point and has a rustic wood and wrought iron appear that suits with the relaxation of my decor. I am pretty happy with this cart.

Assembling directions ended up, to us, a nightmare.

Rather durable, straightforward to put with each other, looks excellent. The only point is i did not comprehend how slender 18′ was. When you place a computer system keep track of on the desk, you really feel super shut sitting down in front of it. Would be fully great with just a laptop computer. One thing i want i experienced viewed as beforehand.

Altra Elmwood Double Pedestal Desk, Sonoma Oak : Purchased for my son’s new college house.

Easy to assemble though placing the cabinets on. Effortless to assemble however placing the shelves on definitely takes two individuals. The shelves have a tiny little bit of sheen to them but unless you are up near and genuinely inspecting them, they seem incredibly natural. Beware – the device is very slim so except you are securing it to the wall, you can expect to want to load heavier things on the bottom and retain it light up best.

I procured it to use at get the job done as we needed additional room for a new show. I set it together in considerably less than thirty minutes, and have obtained so many compliments on it in just a single day. It seems to be and is really sturdy and it a lovely addition to our lobby. It is pretty functional (i assembled it with the non-slat facet) as properly as beautiful.

Quite sturdy and simple to place with each other. Fairly strong and effortless to place alongside one another. Nonetheless, the offer was damaged/harmed and the picket table tops have been uncovered. Absolutely heaps of chips on the tables.

I essential a desk in a compact house. This match the monthly bill in regards to measurements though it is about an inch lessen than a standard desk height of 30inches. I basically get pleasure from assembling ikea home furnishings and other flatpack household furniture, i have hardly ever fulfilled something i couldnt tackle. This desk was one more story. The pilot holes drilled into wooden (the place you will push your self-tapping screws into) are not deep adequate. If i had accessibility to a drill this wouldnt be an issue but the nature of these flatpacks is the use of easy hand tools these types of as screwdrivers. This item fell brief in anything so straightforward, deeper pilot holes. I am now obtaining to debate having a drill which costs alot of funds or come across a close friend to financial loan a single to me. Exerting my strength to travel these screws in with a screw driver will close up stripping the heads.

I set this in my office and its ideal.

It is really a bit more compact in human being than we predicted but we ended up currently being glad that it was.

A great product for the selling price, nevertheless i experienced to acquire the wheels off as they have been earning the shelf quite wobbly.

This table is a good looking desk for the value. I appreciate applying this desk much more than the television trays we had been usingonly criticism is that, irrespective of its basic assembly, the screws and corresponding holes are so close to the flooring (when directed to area it on its aspect) it is hard to screw with a screwdriver and hand stress. The screws strip quickly, the holes are crooked or something and the screws stored heading in diagonally, building it even more difficult to hand tighten with screwdriver. If you run into the similar difficulty, do not fear. I made use of two bar stools as a sawhorse stand kind offer, and hung the steel frame from the base slab. I was in a position to get much extra strain into the screws with my screwdriver at that angle and the table top is uncomplicated right after that. I have the matching electrical fire enjoyment stand and for the rate, i adore them both.

Received this for my son to play his legos on.

Large high quality, quick to place alongside one another. Really like this bookcase and all the other altra sonoma oak furniture. It was a very little shorter than i anticipated, so make confident you actually comprehend the proportions just before you purchase. It was simple to set together, is strong, appears to be like good, and is high high quality product. I like that the shelves are not down the center, and the two sides are ‘off centered,’ would make it a very little additional fascinating. Excellent to exhibit books and knick knacks.

Nonetheless way shorter than i considered it would be. I cherished this product it is extremely sturdy and reasonably simple to assemble, the instructions had been very crystal clear and every part was labeled nicely. My only grievance is that i was misled about the top simply because of the images supplied, i involved a photograph of mine assembled with me upcoming to it i am 5′ 7′ tall and as you can see it is a shorter bookcase.

This desk appears astounding and was very uncomplicated to put alongside one another. I am quite happy with my order.

Fantastic finish, straightforward to establish, thoroughly clean glance. . End is quality, better than photos. Research, opposite to a dilemma posted about a cat leaping off of in this article and response indicating this is also unstable. Sway l-r is practically non-existent. Sway f-b is negligible, solely acceptable.

Great industrial/loft type seem, strong, shelving device – not really a kitchen area cart search or dimension in my belief. Truly wonderful durable shelving – not constrained to kitchen shelving & i would not explain it as a kitchen area cart. My daughter likes the industrial/loft search and she’s established up her bedroom in this model. We are working with this as a combo bookshelf and printer stand in her space and it is incredibly appealing – it absolutely does not look kitcheny and you would will need to be tall and a very massive kitchen to have this as your kitchen cart. It is really durable and well constructed.

Initial, the motive for my middling evaluate. Proper after i constructed one of our set of two, i observed one particular of the tables had a tiny space of a few places where by the low-cost veneer was presently peeling and exposing a white place underneath. Experienced to go over it with a coaster. A very little upset that this was how it was out of the box. Somewhat simple established up but as other reviews have mentioned, don’t hear to the directions. Do the bottom shelf, not the middle shelf, the major shelf, then the center shelf. Have faith in me, it will be way less complicated. Also, a drill will undoubtedly be handy to tighten the screws.

It glimpse extremely awesome in my kitchen area.

      Psa: the package it came in was broken and upon opening it, the screws and wrenches packet was missing. As an fyi, if they are missing, the manual has a website that you can request the missing parts through and they will ship to you for free. Despite the setback, this is still a great product.

        So that’s the best description you’ll get) and it’s a little ugly. I don’t know if the boards don’t line up or if i’m just an idiot. Will probably never know for sure, but the top flat part kind of hangs off the top of the board (i’m a college wild child, not a carpenter, so that’s the best description you’ll get) and it’s a little ugly. Hardly noticeable, though, and looks good from a distance. Carries a vinyl player and some succulents pretty nicely, because who has books anymore?.

    First, the reason for my middling review. Right after i built one of our set of two, i noticed one of the tables had a small area of three spots where the cheap veneer was already peeling and exposing a white spot underneath. Had to cover it with a coaster. A little upset that this was how it was out of the box. Relatively simple set up but as other reviews have noted, don’t listen to the instructions. Do the bottom shelf, not the middle shelf, the top shelf, then the middle shelf. Trust me, it’ll be way easier. Also, a drill will definitely be handy to tighten the screws.

      Relatively sturdy, easy to put together, looks great. The only thing is i didn’t realize how narrow 18″ was. When you put a computer monitor on the desk, you feel super close sitting in front of it. Would be totally fine with just a laptop. Something i wish i had considered beforehand.

      Keep in mind you get what you pay for. I really love the look of this rolling cart, but there were a few pieces that we had issues with when putting this together. One of the wheels would not go in no matter how hard we tried so our cart is slightly not level. The wood pieces are also obviously not real wood and you can tell because the corners are already starting to peel off. From far away this piece looks great in a our small kitchen, but it definitely it a cheaper piece from up close. We didn’t want to pay for something over $100 so this will suffice for now.

    This table is a nice looking table for the price. I enjoy using this table much more than the tv trays we were usingonly complaint is that, despite its simple assembly, the screws and corresponding holes are so close to the floor (when directed to place it on its side) it’s hard to screw with a screwdriver and hand pressure. The screws strip easily, the holes are crooked or something and the screws kept going in diagonally, making it even more difficult to hand tighten with screwdriver. If you run into the same issue, don’t fear. I used two bar stools as a sawhorse stand type deal, and hung the metal frame from the bottom slab. I was able to get much more pressure into the screws with my screwdriver at that angle and the table top is easy after that. I have the matching electric fireplace entertainment stand and for the price, i love them both.
