Very nice quality and fit / finish

Very nice office desk. Precisely manufactured and a very good value. Assembly instructions straight forward ... follow them closely and exactly to avoid frustration. I would recommend that Sauder use CAM Screws for the top ... not Twist-Lock Fasteners. The Twist Locks are inferior to old fashion CAM Screws and hidden CAMS, and the hardest step was #15 , fitting the top to the rest of the unit. I found it difficult to align 17 Twist-Locks all at once ... it would have been easier with CAM Screws.

Sturdy desk, beautiful color, slight flaws

This desk is very sturdy and huge. Be sure to measure and that it is in fact the size you need. More space means more clutter! It is a nice piece of furniture, which I purchased along with two of the matching bookcases. The set looks great in my library! The drawers are good sizes, especially the file drawers (although the top drawer only pulls out halfway). There is a handy hole in the top to feed cords through to hide them. I have plenty of leg room, although my husband will bang his legs on the backside (he's 6'3", but he doesn't use the desk). A couple of flaws and problems with this desk. One, it is time consuming to assembe. My handy husband took three hours to assemble it. Two, the desk top shows finger prints and smudges, especially if you are in a well lit location. Three, the drawers are slightly skewed. They do not line up perfectly. Four, the corners of the desk are very sharp! Be careful if you have small children, or even your self if you bang into it. Finally, the front drawer was missing some drilled holes, which we called customer service about. Customer service was very prompt and helpful & sent out a new piece immediately. And finally, of course, it isn't real wood, nor does it look like it. However, definitely a beautiful piece of furniture for the price, if you can overlook the above flaws!!

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Shoal Creek Executive Desk:
I really like the desk it looks good. I do have 1 problem with it. The drawer slider for one of the drawers was bent when I got it and does not work. I will need to find a new one for it. Other than that I like the desk.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality control is a joke..
from portland, or
I assembled this on my own. After taking five trips to carry 200lbs of very sharp-edged pieces into my apartment, I spent no less than THREE HOURS putting this thing together. To whoever suggested that no power tools would be necessary is a dirty liar; there are easily over 100 screws and twistlock fasteners that would cause carpal tunnel in any normal person's wrist. All said and done, I had to drill three holes on one of the legs (because there were NONE pre-drilled), several of the desktop holes were between 1/8-1/4" off preventing some of the MANY twistlock fasteners to miss, and two of the four drawers do not slide smoothly (even tho I spent 20mins trying to adjust the levels of the rails). I imagine this could be a very nice desk, but quality control at the factory is apparently a joke, if it exists at all. I will definitely steer clear from any assemble-it-yourself Sauder products in the future. What a disappointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good value....a lot of work

Comments about Shoal Creek Executive Desk:
It really takes two to assemble this desk....very heavy....AND you must read the instructions carefully...they are clear but detailed...make no assumptions....extra care with the drawer slides.... I bought two...the second one was much better aligned for drawers...it seem to be hit or miss on that count
Takes a long time to put together
from South Carolina
I love the look of the finished product but it took my husband forever to put it together :-) But he did a great job and did it right the first time! Lots of pieces and parts. I would say it was about 6 hours or so.
from Windermere, FL
The size of this desk is impressive for the price I paid. Plenty of surface area on the worktop and 5 spacious drawers. My biggest complaint is that the drawers don't pull in and out as smoothly as I would have hoped (and other Sauder purchases I have made)
I would buy this product again.

Home office use. Very good quality. Large in size...make sure you have the space for it. I needed help to flip it over before the final step...very heavy. I am very satisfied with my purchase. I may purchase matching pieces, if I have a need later. I love Sauder products.
Love this product!

This is a very professional looking executive desk that adds style to the room you put it in.

I consider myself handy and assembly was not complicated but it took a bit of time. I suggest that folks label the hardware and add additional labels on the pieces to be assembled before starting assembly. That will save time since many of the pieces look alike. Great customer service. My desk top was damaged and I got a replacement for Sauder in four business days! The fit and finish of the final assembled product is good. The desk looks just as good as it did in the web pictures. Desk is heavy and I have placed plastic floor protectors on the bottom of the feet and I can move the desk rather easily on carpet with these in place.

would buy again
from Madison WI
i bought this for my home office as I wanted a bigger desk. The only disappointment I had was with the drawers as I thought it would be 3 drawers but only 2 on each side. The top of the desk corner was smashed as they could do better packing the desk.
