    More boxes available

    I now have more of these available. I think they are pretty nice for the $. Maybe other members that have one will comment.

    This is NOT a negative review. It is an accurate description of what I received. I would have still bought them knowing this.

    They are nice enough for the dollars. Do not expect homemade quality, though they appear that they are handmade. They are mass produced in China for an outfit in MO and are not made out of oak, but some other hardwood like popular. They are also not 100% hardwood as the bottom is pressed board covered in felt. The lids on mine are not square to the top. The finish is nicely done. They were shipped promptly and arrived nicely packaged.

    The picture is an accurate representation of the product and what you will get.

    They are nice enough to have out on the night stand.

    Well - Yes, the bottom is indeed felt covered fiberboard, but the bottoms of most boxes/drawers etc are thin fiber or plyboard. I have seen variations of other types of wood in the top and sides as well, but they are solid wood, 7/16" thick and have a rather nice finish. However, all said and done, not bad. As a woodworker myself I built most of the kitchen and bath cabinets in our house, and I'm not sure that I could make a box that nice for twenty bucks shipped anywhere in the US. In fact I know I couldn't.

    Chorizo gave a fair appraisal - thank you sir. I haven't noticed any boxes that had tops that weren't square. Maybe something happened in shipping to cause that.

    Jim,

    No, they were just put on wrong. All I did was unscrew the hinges and reset the top and it worked out fine.

    If I had to do it all over again, knowing what I know about them having them in hand: I would still buy them!

    This is still a good deal.
