Rated 1 out of 5áby mainealaska wobbly
At first I thought it may be my kitchen floor that was uneven, but after moving the console to different locations, I realized that the legs were uneven. My husband had to make a shim so that it wouldn't wobble. I bought this today for my birthday after looking at it for about a year. I'm pretty disappointed. It looks great, just like the picture, but disappointed in the quality. LLbean has been great with returns/customer service in the past. I'm not sure if I'm going to go through the hassle of sending it back though. Also half the drawers had dowels and half didn't, not sure what's going on with that.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AspenBuddy Great Piece for Back Hallway
Unlike prior reviews, I believe they have improved this piece. The handles fit perfectly into the holes and it was easy to screw in. Canada customer - received in 2 days, I was impressed! as shipments usually take much longer. It's perfect size wise, as was meant for a hallway and didn't want it to be too wide. As shown in the picture, this is what I received. Purchased for storage of items as going out to garage- it totally works. Will see in time how drawers hold up (opening and closing -- not sure this is made for a lot of open/close use - but will see). But definitely like it. Yes it is a lighter piece as prior review, but works for me.

áby iowafarmwife2012 Probably over-priced but still a beautiful piece
Overall, this piece looks great, functions well, but is definitely over-priced for a pine piece. I guess we Americans are used to everything being made so cheaply overseas- we have to pay the price for it to be made in the USA. I'm okay with that!!!
It does look like oak in the picture, but is, like it states, made from pine. This makes it much lighter than something of the same size made from a harder material, such as oak. I believe the price would be more reflectant if it was, in fact, made from such. The stain is a little darker than in the picture, but still beautiful. The only assembly is the drawer pulls, and my package did not include screws. I emailed customer service and they had them over-nighted.

Rated 2 out of 5áby AndyRx Poor Quality Control and Bad Mfr Follow Through
First had large swirl marks (see photo). Returned to store and they reordered and put note in to hand pick, which they obviously didn't because it shipped the same day (Saturday) a few hours later. Replacement better but still swirl marks. Also, had the short screws others have mentioned meaning I needed to go out and buy new ones. Lot of work for an ok piece. Not sure whether I'm keeping but tired already of the process. I like products made in the USA and support them with my purchasing power. But this is not a good example.

Expensive price, cheaply made. Very lightweight. I expected more from LL Bean, especially for this price.

Looks nice and I am pleased with it. However it is not very well made.

Drawers do not fit well. Had to use a screwdriver /knife to free two of them up.
The screws that are supplied to secure the drawer pulls to the drawers are too short. It is impossible to assemble as supplied. Had to purchase longer screws and modify.
Piece looks nice but be prepared to spend some time securing pulls to drawers. It's obvious that manufacturer never tested this with consumers during the design / manufacture of product

Love this piece. The small depth makes it perfect for an entry way and adds a bit of storage space for keys, etc. Proportions are beautiful. Slightly rugged looking but not TOO rugged. Packaged very well so there is little chance of damage in transport. Delivered exactly when promised. I bought 3 pieces from this set and I'm extremely happy with all of them. But, what else would you expect from L L Bean?

First, the photo is accurate and the description mentions it's made of pine. The top is just slightly more than 1/2" thick. It feels like an inexpensive import, and is not really what I'd expect from L.L. Bean. I was hoping/expecting something heavier, made with reclaimed barn board, for example. This clearly feels like white pine that has been manipulated to have that rough sawn look. We purchased for our entry foyer, but will put it elsewhere.

For the price it is disappointing. All of the stain is medium shade but one top drawer is totally blonde, almost like it was not stained and looks unfinished. Assembly of drawer handles should be quite simple, but this is proving to be a challenge on the top drawers due to design. It is true to size and delivery was very fast. We usually love LL Bean purchases, but this is one just doesn't measure up to usual standards.
