This is a very precisely engineered and high quality product. It wasn't the simplest to put together, but I liked that the pieces (in particular the oak finish pieces) were separately packaged so that no scratches could occur during transport.
Only a couple of reasons to knock it down to 4 star.
1. doors come with several pre-located blind holes for the handles (you drill through in the ones you want). These would have put the handles right on the bottom of the door which is not as shown (and not ergonomic). Had to measure and drill my own hole in the end.
2. the metal locking dowels which are supposed to provide rigidity do not cut into the clipboard, the holes in the board are too big. I had to use a bit of glue in the end to secure one end (not in the manual).
3. To cut the cornice at 45 degree mating angles, you need a box saw/mitre saw or similar.
Be aware you have to drill holes in the oak finished doors and drawers, and cut the oak plinth and cornice, which is a bit nerve-racking, but it's a good quality finish that doesn't split easily.
All in all, a very high quality product but not for novice DIY I would say. Once I finally finished it, it looks lovely.
