Grade: C+ (on its own)

Right out of the box, this shelf unit is subpar to say the least. With a little extra work you can absolutely use this as a quality vinyl case - keep reading below...

So everything I read in the reviews told me not to buy this unit. Poor material, poor design, instructions that were lacking. The thing is, when you compare it to buying the parts and building a unit yourself, this is a far cheaper route. So knowing this is basically particle board assembled with dowels and double sided tape - I picked up wood glue as an add on item. Instead of taping together pieces of cheap wood (yes that's what comes in the box) I glued them with wood glue which makes a bond stronger than most wood grain. I highly highly recommend doing this if you purchase the set. It'll cost about $3 more but you won't be throwing this away after a month of use. I hope the manufacturer reads this and updates the product bc it could be a lot better.

TLDR: Value for the material but truly stupid assembly guide and method earns it a C+ on its own. Buy wood glue to make it last much longer.
