I've just built one of these, and agree with most of what's already been said by the reviewers of this desk. It was a pleasure to build, being well packed, well designed, accurately machined and, bearing in mind it is made from veneered chipboard with coated mdf panelling, it is sturdy and looks good when assembled. Yes, it probably will take you 3 hours to put together, but the results are well worth it in the end. (An electric screwdriver is a great help here!)
I'm planning to buy another one by Alphason - the Maryland one - for my wife.
