good shelves

they look just like the picture. some people have mentioned they are a little flimsy and they are, but for the price they're ok and it comes with a wall bracket, recommended.
The instructions are very bad. assembly was easy but it REALY helps if you have assembled furniture like this befor. for example it uses two "hidden cams", these things are easy to use but there is nothing in the instructions that says how to use them, if you have never seen such a thing before it can be a little confusing (always remember, google is your friend :-). another thing, someone said the thing fell apart on him when he tried to stand it up. I don't know what he did wrong but the instructions do make this point:
it comes with a backing which is in two parts, just cheep thin cardboard with a fake oak finish on one side. It turns out this is a MAJOR structual component of these shelves. you nail it on (not easy, there are creases you want to stretch out, better to have someone help you at this step) and it holds everything in place, don't try to move or stand it up util that is completely nailed in place. one more thing, this comes as two three foot units that join together in the middle (that's why the middle shelf is not adjustable). before you tighten any thing or nail on the backing you MUST be sure the two halfs fit nice and snug together. in my case I had to prop up one end with some newspapers to get it snug.
and lastly, the package arrived way ahead of schedule, no damage, no problems. I love this place!

It's not solid wood

This bookcase is advertised as being solid wood, which is why I bought it. Turned out to be the usual pressboard construction available everywhere, which I was trying to avoid.

This bookcase is advertised as being solid wood, which is why I bought it. Turned out to be the usual pressboard construction available everywhere, which I was trying to avoid.

I kept it anyway since it would have been too much trouble to return. It assembled easily enough, seems sturdy, and looks good.

I now have the shelves loaded down with a lot of heavy books and history has shown me that only solid wood shelves won't sag over time. If I remember, I'll update this review in a few years and let you know how this bookcase held up.

    Comments about Sauder Beginnings 5 Shelf Bookcase - Highland Oak:

    I really liked the book shelves, like an erector set in wood.
    easy to put together with a philips screwdriver and hammer.
    Of course I did order a bookshelf with doors on the bottom and instead I received a cabinet,(full size doors) but since I took it out of the box before noticing it, and not being able to rebox it, i decided to keep it. It fit better in the space I had allowed for the bookcase with doors. I still could have used the shelves for showing off some of my collectibles.

      Although it displays a lovely oak back....the backing is actually FOLDED CARDBOARD....printed to look like wood. Small hardware for attachments does not support shelves...no extra hardware enclosed and directions are not clear.Return policy good (sent the second one back)

            This was my first Hayneedle purchase. I am not handy so I approached the job of putting the shelves together with some trepidation. Nothing to fear. All the screw holes were predrilled and in exactly the right place for seamless fitting together. I ordered 4 shelves and each went together easily. And they look super, and carry the weight well. Very happy about my purchase.
