This is a big unit and heavy when assembled.
Went together OK and ended up square - the back hardboard cover nails on, so this is crucial to get right! The drawer runners need thought when assembling as the instructions are a bit vague at this point. Also putting the drawers in is difficult the first time. There is a plastic tab as a lock mechanism on each runner this is easy to accidentally apply and this can stop the runners locating properly. There is a neat adjustment for setting the fronts to look even.
When I was certain all the drawers were in line and worked OK I removed them and then applied 'No Nails' adhesive in a bead all around the seams inside where it can't be seen. I did the same on the underneath of each drawer. All these self assembly units work loose eventually so the 'No Nails' locks everything in place.
Looks good when finished but considering it took nearly a day to assemble (inc. drawer handles) then I think it is a shade overpriced.
