Rated 5 out of 5 by lilyvioletrose Solid, pretty, easy-to-assemble shelf
I bought this to use as a small bookshelf; I was worried it might be too small, but I think it's going to be just right. It arrived quickly with free standard shipping and was well packed. Although it says it's helpful to have two people available for assembly, I was able to do it myself with no trouble. I've helped assemble cheaper furniture from discount stores, and L.L. Bean furniture is much nicer and easier to put together. I'm very happy with this little shelf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by continental1900 Good solid side-table
Blends well with our mission furniture. Only negative,wooden-plugs covering screws did not fit flush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusterBob Attractive, Sturdy and Easy to Assemble End Table
I just bought my second of these end tables. It is an attractive, sturdy, and easy to assemble compact table. There were no defects in the first one but I must admit to not having opened the box on the second one yet. Although you could find an end table that is less expensive, you get what you pay for. This is a piece of fine furniture that should last for years. Because of the quality, appearance, and ease of assembly, I expect to buy other pieces of this L.L.Bean furniture series in the future. Who knew that L.L.Bean would become a furniture store?

Rated 2 out of 5 by kayebee Surprised at all the five star reviews
I'm really surprised at all the praise this piece of furniture is getting. For the price, I think it's a very poor value and resembles the sort of furniture you can get at any discount store. There's nothing wrong with the furniture, other than I believe I could get similar quality elsewhere for half the price. I really expected more from LL Bean.

Just the right size to hold a printer on the top and place next to a desk. Shelves hold printer paper and other desk supplies very well. Very sturdy and well designed. Nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catdancer Nice Quality
This is a well constructed little bookshelf with smooth finishes on all edges. It was easy to assemble (all the screw holes lined up perfectly) and it fits in a relatively small space. That said, I should mention that books that are taller than 9" will not fit vertically on either shelf. However, I like the fact that it is one of the very few things I've bought in recent years that was made in the United States.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rickety 2-Shelf End Table
This is a nice piece of furniture, but I didn't see a warning anywhere that "some assembly is required." Another tip that you should voice is to coat each of the screw's threads with hand soap before you begin to start screwing it into the other part.
It took about an hour to assemble the five pieces (the top, 2 ends, and 2 shelves) and than hammer plugs into the screw holes.
Each piece is nicely finished.
