Finally - a STURDY assembly-required bookcase!
By Furniture Girl
Comments about Camden County Three Shelf Bookcase:
This is not your average assemble-it-yourself bookcase. As expected with most "knock-down" furniture, the instructions and hardware all worked fine. But two things make this a standout:1. The nice molding strips at top and bottom, which give it a bit of character over most bookcases in this price range.2. The beefy thickness of all the pieces -- the shelves are one-inch thick! NO worries about overload sag!Because of the beefiness, this one is particularly heavy when condensed in the delivery box -- so here's a word of advice, applicable to all assemble-it furniture if you're not a 200-lb gorilla:Open the box -- either in the car, or on the porch where it was delivered -- and carry the pieces in one at a time. Easy!

Excellent Valure For Money
The bookcase was very well packaged, with additional strengthening at the edges, and the whole was wrapped in plastic for waterproofing. This is a very heavy unit, so the packaging is important! I have had this type of furniture arrive damaged on the inside from poor packaging.The bookcase is made from chipboard (hence the weight) covered with something (I doubt that it is actual wood veneer, probably printed paper) and then varnished. It looks good though!I had no trouble putting it together. All of the pieces, holes, etc lined up perfectly and fitted together. Most of the strength derives from the back panel, which is nailed in place, and keeps it square. The main components connect with plastic fasteners. Pity they couldn't have supplied metal ones - it would have made the unit stronger at little extra cost. One thing that I really like is the fact that the shelves are 1 inch thick - therefore less likely to sag in the middle due to the weight of books.All in all, very good for the price!! I can recommend it.
I added this three shelf bookcase to three 5 shelve ones and they are the closest thing to beautiful built-ins as you can get. I love them.
Heavy and solid
I was amazed at how heavy this package was when it arrived. On opening the box I found that all the peices that make up the shelf were of high quality fabricated wood and of substantial dimensions. It arrived ready to assemble and came together easily. I did find the included bolts and screws to be somewhat less than what a shelving unit of this size and weight would need. I assembled it with power tools and yet the finished unit seemed wobbly. Additional bracketing was needed to make it solid and secure. Other than that it is a terrific looking bookcase with the strength to hold even my heaviest tomes with ease.
Very nice, but some problems assembling
Book case looks very nice after assembly completed. The left and right sides were mislabeled. After figuring that out, everything went smoothly until it was time to attach the bottom trim. Almost impossible to get the screws lined up with the holes in trim and book case. Finally managed to get the two end screws in with the aid of a magnetic screw driver. I had to use a drill and make new holes to insert the remaining 3 screws. Perhaps it should be considered to attach the bottom trim using glue instead of screws. That said, it was a good value for the price.
Just what I wanted
This book case is very sturdy and beautiful. Easy to assemble , ( I did it myself ). The picture is exactly what it looks like..It was delivered on time with no problems.. I would reccomend to everybody! Great price ...great company
