The assembled desk looks good and provides great functionality. The assembly took about 1 1/2 hours to complete and was relatively simple. My only criticism is that the instructions could have made the identification of the different drawer slides a bit clearer. The individual components of the desk have good heft about them and the provided fasteners do a good job of joining those members into an integral whole. The desk provides good leg room and it provides access holes through the desktop for routing cables.

Overall quality of the desk is very good. The materials are solid, the pieces fit together well and it looks good when assembled. Unfortunately it ends there. I do not use the keyboard drawer because it is to low. When using the keyboard on the desk, the desk edges are so sharp, they leave lines cut in to your wrist and/or arm. The keyboard drawer makes it tight to slide under the desk, causing me to stretch to use a mouse. The desk is uncomfortable making it unusable for long periods of time.

Sauder can do much better

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Orchard Hills Double Pedestal Executive Desk:

This desk was a disappointment. It arrived with a cracked desktop. The pre-drilled holes for the drop-down keyboard drawer were nowhere near the correct location. The pre-drilled holes for the angle brackets were way too small, and I couldn't get a drill in there to open them up. We wasted an hour tightening these screws by hand. The replacement desktop arrived four days later, but we had to put it out for trash, since Sauder wouldn't take it back. We won't buy another Sauder product.

Comments about Orchard Hills Double Pedestal Executive Desk:

I fell in love with this desk as soon as I saw it online. It was perfect for my office / man cave. The directions are pretty straight forward, but it will take some time. I've put together numerous pieces of furniture, but this one was by far the most time consuming. I split it up between 3 days, and it probably took 4-5 hours total. If you have someone helping you, you can easily cut that in half. My only word of advice, build it in exact spot you plan to keep it. You build it upside down essentially, and flip it when you're done. Once it's right side up, it's VERY heavy and difficult to move.

Looks great. Good directions and all the pieces were actually included. We left the center draw flap off as we felt it would just be a hassle to flip up and down each keyboard use.

Oak Desk

Comments about Orchard Hills Double Pedestal Executive Desk:

This desk was what I was looking for. I needed to try to come close to matching the seats in our church, which were Oak. It was the closest to matching that I had found. The service was excellent and very quick. Just one suggestion: Find a way to have it without so............many pieces. It took my husband and I over 6-hours to put together. The instructions weren't to bad, but I think they could have been a little easier to understand.
Over all, proud of out desk for the church.

Good Looks and Value

Comments about Orchard Hills Double Pedestal Executive Desk:

Our roll top desk was just taking up space while our computer and printer were living on the dining room table. This desk gave us the work space for the printer and additional books/paper along side our iMac. The pull out drawer for the keyboard/mouse conserves additional space on the desk top. It looks really nice. The assembly takes 4-5 hours and overall the instructions were good - just lots of screws. It takes some adjusting to get the drawers lined up evenly and sliding smoothly but their instructions show you how. We have ordered the matching lateral file cabinet and hutch which will really round out this area of our home and bring a lot of functionality for school work, projects, e-mailing, finances, file storage, etc. Very pleased with the overall value.

    Q:

    I assume this product is made of press board with glued on veneer, including draw fronts. Is that correct? I could not find any information in regards to construction.

      A:

      Hello, this desk has laminate construction - so it will resist scratches and stains more than veneer will. Thanks for the question!
