Rated 2 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by libertyfan It looks great in my hallway
I love this hall console! It looks like it was custom made to go by the front door of my small apartment. It did smell when it came out of the box but that went away after a day or two. Also, one of the holes for the handles wasn't exactly in the right place so I had to drill a little bit to get the handle on. I still gave it 5 stars because of how perfectly it fits in the hall.

I like this kind of furniture . I have other pieces.
I understand that it is "one of a kind" ...no two pieces are alike.
But...the top two boards are not flat...therefore objects that you display on top wobble.
Other than that...I love this kind of rustic furniture.
