Rated 3 out of 5 by OccasionalLLBeanshop Be prepared for a fight!
We ordered a mission-style bench from LL Bean several years ago, and were impressed with how easily it went together and how sturdy it is.
So, we ordered two of these tables. It took two of us, a power drill, and the better part of an evening to get them together. They are not as sturdy as the bench, either.
Came with a couple of "dings", which we decided to live with rather than hassle with returning a large item.
The light mission has a definite "reddish", or warm, tone, so beware will likely not look good with cool colors.
Overall, they are okay, but not great.

Great item, however, for those not very adept at assembly, difficult. I now have a parallelogram of a shelving unit, due to probably my ineptitude, in not being able to see the interior holes, while assembling. I would love for someone to assemble this correctly, and will think twice about "assembly required" items in the future, or take a course in how to assemble these items.

This table is very hard to put together, you have to align screws with pre-drilled holes, and while you're doing it you can't see the holes at all. Somehow I got them in, and when the table was finished, the table wobbled back and forth. My son used a power drill to get the screws in tighter, but some holes don't line up at all. Never again will I buy a piece that has to be assembled.

I purchase the Two Shelf End Table to add to my collection of L.L. Bean mission furniture. My house is starting to look like a real Texas Mission.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PeterJK A handy piece of furniture
I was originally looking for a small end-table for next to my rocker but after searching decided on this small book shelf. It's handier since I can put a few books on the shelves and I even put my small sub-woofer on the lower one. It was easy to put together but the one down-side is that it required an extreme amount of strength to screw in the screws tightly enough so that the item became rigid.
The piece itself is as well-made and well-finished as any other piece of furniture I've purchased from LLBean.

This table, small bookcase is great for any small storage unit. I use it as a night table and store my books underneath. It is a very versatile item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NatureGlimpses VERY very happy with this furniture
I already had purchased the flip side mission table and was very happy with the construction and look of that piece. So I bought the Mission two shelf end table. It arrived in a very timely manner, well packaged. The finish on the piece was very nice; no knicks, scrapes or uneven finish. It fits perfectly in the area I intended.
I have set a printer on the top shelf and the bottom two shelves hold supplies of paper. I like the open slat look.
the mission furniture is well made and sturdy. It was very easy to put together. My partner put soap on the screws and that helped with putting it together. Highly recommend Mission furniture.

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.
