This is a nice desk. It took approximately 3.5 to assemble. Very easy step by step instructions.
I've had this desk for over 6 months and am very pleased with it. I'm 62 with back and knee problems but assembled the desk with a little help from my husband over a period of several days. Had some damaged pieces but they were replaced with little problem. It's just the right size for my small office. Hated the delivery however because the box was very heavy. The guy left it on the front porch and refused to even place it inside the front door.
Showed up in one 130 pound box. Spent 3 hours assembling, upside down per instructions. When turned over, there was a 4 inch crack in the desktop veneer. Per customer service, we have to disassemble the whole thing and return it. Desk is a nice design, but a real effort to get returned. My advice, buy locally or from .com sites that let you return items to their stores.
Sturdy attractive well made. Excellent assembly instructions. Desk came with several dings on the finish, but not enough for me to return. Each part lettered - some with stickers, some with marker on the ends. Perfect for a home office.
