This product came with a big bite of wood out of one of the parts and a glue or lacquer stain. Returned it today. Cannot believe that this would have passed any quality inspection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael27 Great product
Very easy to put together. Just had to tweak one leg to get it level. The anti-scratch pads on the bottoms of the legs was a nice touch.

When fully assembled the product does not stand level; it wobbles. Several different types of wood are used which absorb the stain color differently, so it looks variegated. The largest piece of wood upon which the book rests is ply wood, heavily disguised and stained. The Toscano description inflates the quality of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carlie67 Very pleased with product
I read a review stating it was hard to assemble. It was very simple and took me only a short time to assemble. I love the look and quality of the stand. I would recommend this product to anyone. Very nice, high quality workmanship!

Just look at the photo I have uploaded. The item is very traditional. It looks like it could be an antique.

Nice book holder. Unfortunately, one of the legs were damaged, but I kept it anyway.

Excellent piece for the price. Especially if you're able to download a coupon or discount. I found resellers selling it for double or triple what Toscano sells it for, so be sure to buy from Toscano.
The reason I didn't rate it with five stars all around was the assembly. The legs and supports really had to be tweaked and torqued to get all the pieces assembled and tightened down. This resulted in the inability of all of legs to sit flat on a surface. But this was remedied when I replaced the plastic leg tips with foam pads.
I really love it and wish I could rate it five stars overall across the board, but I want to be honest for the sake of other customers. If you don't mind the small amount of tweaking to make it just right then it will be no problem. Perhaps also Toscano can rectify the problem with the assembly. Thank you Toscano for a beautiful piece!
