Just assembled

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

Assembly was generally straightforward and smooth. Instructions were clear and parts fitted well. One issue, on step 7 in attempting to fit part X to I, had to line up 3 dowel pins and a cam screw with the holes. When they wouldn't go in all the way, I resorted to tapping with a hammer. Unfortunately, the hidden cam had got rotated just enough to prevent the cam screw from going in further. Before I realized this I just tapped harder, eventually causing some damage to the screw, cam, and wood around it. Finally figured out what was going on, and managed to recover and get the parts securely together with not much consequence. Damaged area is hidden. A warning to make sure the cam does not rotate while putting the parts together would be helpful. And on step 15, lower left diagram, there is an incorrect reference to part D238, which should be D34. There is no D238.

Nice Desk

By 

from New Jersey

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

This seems like a great desk. Just put it together, took about 2-3 hours. Not hard to assemble if you follow the instructions. One of the handles for the drawers was broken out of the package. No big deal though, just had to request a new one from the Sauder website.

I love this desk...

By 

from Lehigh Acres, Florida

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

I bought this desk for my Apple computer. The top is large enough for my monitor, keyboard, Mac computer and router. It has a drawer for hanging files and two additional drawers. For me, it's perfect. The appearance looks like a far more expensive piece of furniture than it is. The assembly instructions were excellent. I made a coupe of errors during assembly (trust the instructions!), but I figured out my mistakes and it was easily remedied. I'm thrilled with the final product. It is very functional and looks great. The only shipping damage was a small chip out of the side panel. It was not easy to see and I covered up the chipped area with a black magic maker and it's undetectable. I highly recommend this product. By the way, it's my second desk by Sauder.

Great product!

By 

from Los Osos, CA

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

I am very impressed. The assembled desk looks like a fine piece of solid furniture. Assembly required some time but the instructions were orderly, clear and concise. The fact that you segregate the various pieces of hardware to individual pouches was very helpful. You discouraged the "power trip" of using an electric drill, I assume so folks do not over tighten the screws. But, the pre-drilled holes are tight and by the end of the assembly process my palms were sore. Not complaining, though, the desk is a stylish addition to our den.

Solid Desk with some Assembly Issues

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

The desk is much more solid and substantial than you would expect for the price. The assembly takes a while and the instructions are sometimes confusing. Not all the parts are well marked. In my case it took me quite a while to realize that there were two "Y" legs and no "U" leg. Rather than deal with returns, I drilled two new holes in one of the "Y" legs and continued the assembly. This worked fine but left two exposed holes on the front of the desk.

classy looking desk

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sauder Office Furniture Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

The desk was pretty easy to put together and easy to move around. The final steps, the drawers, required a lot of adjusting to make them open and close correctly, and it was frustrating for a bit. My coworkers like its appearance and it's a good size for my office.

Comments about Carson Forge Compact Laptop Desk:

Love the desk, looks great in living room/office area. Came earlier than expected so that was great, however it had a broken top. Ordering the new piece was easy and it came in no time! My son-in-law said it was easy to assemble after that.

    Is the back of the desk the same material as the front or is it just a piece of cardboard?

      A:

      Hello Mel, thank you for your question. Unlike most, this desk is finished nicely on the back. You can view it at our website by clicking the 360 view. As for the material, panels are typically a thinner material when comparing to the rest of the desk. Thank you, Dawn
