Bought 2 cherry - received 1 oak and 1 cherry. Awaiting response on offer to buy the oak from CS over 1 week. Was promised 24 hours. Great chest but CS seem lacking.
Was surprised at how heavy the piece is - solid oak except for the back and drawer sides and bottom (drawer sides are a little flimsy). Bought unfinished when on sale at a great price. Was worried from the reviews that said it was poorly packaged so I opted to have FedEx deliver right to my door instead of going through the post office. Was shipped and delivered in fine shape. I painted the piece in a distressed finish and it looks like an antique! I love it. As I said, it is a very heavy piece!
Bought this as a Xmas gift for my wife. Not the best construction quality but OK for its intended purpose. All corners and a few of the knobs were scuffed & damaged in shipping.
I really like the item, but the way it is packaged for shipment, it is very easilly damaged - especially the corners. If the company invested a little in better packaging, they would have fewer returns. Overall a great value though.
I Love This! I just received one, and got on line immediately to order another. I'm a hand embroiderer, and am always looking for something where I can store small notions and threads. (Those plastic things are so disappinting, expensive, but they look cheap.) But this is classy. And the 18 separate drawers are perfect! I wasn't expecting the drawers to all be singles, in other chests I've seen they have been doubles, etc.. But this is amazing good fun. The cherry goes wonderfully with my Shaker decor too!
