I'm adding photos to show how it looks just out of the box (since there is a lack of those with this product page). I'm very glad I measured my old drafting table top before ordering, because the 42" is practically the same size I'm accustomed to; the 36" would have been too small.
The product in its original/shelf box with a packing slip on it is what I received (another way of say there wasn't another shipping box it was packed in). It was pretty easy to take downstairs to my studio (if you have a carpeted staircase, it's even easier -- guide it with both hands and let gravity help you take it down, slide it across the carpet -- why strain yourself; it's the desk you're keeping, not the box :).
I opened the package and its contents carefully in case I needed it for a return (stuff happens!). I inspected the pieces as I took them out. The only thing that was a slight concern: the upper right corner looked like it met a brick wall a couple of times before...
Everything was in the box and the instruction were easy to understand. It took me 45 minutes but I couldn't finish assemble the table because the 2 slots where the U bracket inserts on the table bottom on the right side where only half way machined trhu. They are not round holes that I could have just drill, these are rectangular and long shaped. Basically I would have need a replacement table top for it to work. Since I was able to still put it up, with only 1 bracket, I was trying to decide what to do, since the table looks nice but is light (on the flimsy/wobbly side) I bought it to use for: drawing/sketching. It looks fine when flat and parallel to the floor, you still need an adjustable height chair. WHAT'S BAD: When I TILTED up the surface to about 45 degrees, (or #2 of the 3 holes on the bracket) where I will use it the most, the bottom edge (where the pencil ledge is) came down soo low that with 3 1/2 inch of space left I couldn't even fit my legs under when...
After reading the reviews about missing pieces and having to drill holes in the right spots I was a little worried it was going to be a hassle. I got my box and promptly counted all the pieces (all there) and crossed my fingers. I ended up with only one minor snag and a desk I'm really pleased with. The directions are just a few diagrams, no step by step part so if you get nervous about putting together furniture then just take your time going over them and use common sense. I've had plenty of experience assembling furniture so this wasn't too difficult to figure out for me and took me about 20 minutes (it's not too heavy so I didn't need any extra hands). The only part that didn't line up for me were the dowels that go in the feet. They didn't match the holes in the legs and the screw holes ended up skewed too so I didn't bother with them. The screws are long enough so I don't think it took away from the sturdiness of the table. I'm not sure if some people expect there to...
