Bush Furniture Wheaton Reversible Wood Corner Desk in Antique Black and Cherry
- Shopper in
St. Louis, MO
I bought this at the same time I got a Sauder corner desk. The difference in quality was very clear: the Bush desk is much more
solid, with a much higher quality of finish. They've gone for a very light faux-distressed look on the black sections of the desk. It looks good. Desk is easy to assemble, but the sequence and pictures in the booklet are not clear in a couple of places. Sauder does a better job on that front. Drawer space and fittings are good, albeit plastic. Easy to adjust and make work smoothly. The space is pretty compact overall. I was expecting something physically bigger, but it does exactly what I need, so I'm happy with it. The printer stand is fixed, which I wasn't expecting. I like the option of right or left side for the drawers, but the method they've chosen to attaching the drawers to the desk is pretty awful. It's strong and effective once you've got both sections done, but very weak until then. It is a def. 2 person job to get the two final parts together and securely attached to each other. Real potential for a mess if you mess that part up, and the design means it's going to be a small nightmare to move: with everything hinging on two weak points it's either going to have to be disassembled or a three person job to move safely. Overall though, excellent, and I'm going to be looking at Bush before Sauder from now on.
