I assembled this cabinet today. I did this by myself and it took me about 4 hours overall. The cabinet is primarily particle board and is very heavy which is expected for this type of product. The parts are individually packaged and the instructions are easy to follow for the most part. The only problem I had with the instructions came down to the railing for the drawer, somehow I switched the left and right railings. Since I had already removed the part labels it was impossible to determine whether it was the instructions or my own error. It was easy to swap the two railing after it was assembled, but for your own install just check how the railings will come together between the cabinet and the drawer to be sure you have right.

I had one other small mishap when attaching the back liner of the cabinet, it comes in two parts, when I screwed in the first upper section I placed it too close to the top and the screws just missed the wood. I was able to reset them easily enough, but just watch your distance.

Recommendations:
1) Take your time - there are a lot of parts and you need to keep them straight.
2) Read the instructions. They are very good overall. I just found a couple of minor errors that didn't cause any real issues.
3) Use a power screw driver with an adjustable torque setting. When starting a new part of the assembly start with a very torque setting and fine tune it so you don't strip any parts. Once calibrated, you will be good to complete similar assembly work. Repeat this process when encounter a new assembly section.
4) For the early steps, do you work on a covered table with plenty of light so you are comfortable.
5) Don't force any of the assemblies. If everything is assembled correctly, you won't need to force it. If something isn't fitting right, stop and backtrack to see what you might have messed up. There is a good chance you missed something.

Enjoy your new cabinet!

If you don't mind a challenge and had wicked carpetnry skills then this cabinet is for you. It took a half hour to get everyting out of the box, then the entire weekend to put it together. But you have to make sure everything lines perfectly or you'll be in trouble. Somehow, the top half did not fit together well on one side. I had to have a friend come in to my office to get it up on end after most of it was put together. The hardest part of assembly however was teh fact that you so often had to screw in little half inch screws to pilot holes which were only taps in the wood. If the holes and/or the screws were bigger, maybe it would gone smoother. This is how the drawer can get off. It's gorgeous heavy wood and looks great. If you're very patient, you ahve a budy to help, and have the weekend to put it up, you might want to go for it because of the low price point.

Altra Storage Cabinet

Comments about Altra Multipurpose Storage Cabinet, Nightingale Black:

Cabinet was easy enough to assemble on everything but the cabinet doors, which are on top and bottom. It was very hard to get the back squared up and attached correctly so the doors would hang straight, and once I got them straight it left a gap between them when shut. Will look into adjusting screws available in the hinges but not sure if that will fix it. Quality of wood seems nice. Appearance is very appealing, but the drawer is a little loose when rolling in and out and catches on the screws holding the rails in place even though I screwed them in as tight as possible. All in all I would buy it again for the price I paid, because I bought it on sale, but I would just warn to be very careful assembling so it's done well the first time. It may have been the difference for the problems mine has.

Comments about Altra Multipurpose Storage Cabinet, Nightingale Black:

Ordered this cabinet to use in office as a supply cabinet. Turned out to be very poor quality. Not very sturdy and scratches VERY easily. Overall it looks nice but not convinced it will last long.

Solid but a little crooked

Comments about Altra Multipurpose Storage Cabinet, Nightingale Black:

Nice looking cabinet, solid enough to move around. However, the doors are a little askew, they go in further at the handles, oh, and the handles are not level (the pre-made holes were not straight).

Do not purchase

Comments about Altra Multipurpose Storage Cabinet, Nightingale Black:

I love to build furniture, and I am good at it. Everything in the past I have purchased has required a more advanced level of building furniture, even some prior instructions have been in languages that are foreign to me, but I was still able to build them without real issue. This was by far the worst experience that I have ever had. First, the package was damaged and all the parts inside, even that were not affected by the transport damage were scratched before ever being unpacked. The doors were supposed to be beautiful and they were all scratched. There were also a number of parts that were not cut properly in terms of lining up the parts and wood pegs for stability. Even so, I took the advice of the instruction manual and contacted the manufacturer for replacement parts before I even attempted to start building. The same evening that I contacted the manufacturer, I built the cabinet together with everything minus the scratched boards. With just the frame of the cabinet, it was not stable, it was easily wriggled at its height of 6 feet and easily 100 of the total 165lbs. Also with how the boards were cut on the bottom, the decorative front base peice was not completely straight, with no way to have it straightened because of how everything was cut. I officially decided at that point that there were just too many flaws for the money that I paid for the unit. I then disassembled the parts I build and packed them back in the box and returned the entire unit the next day. Just for the frame, it took 4 hours to assemble. This was by far the worst experience ever and I would absolutely never recommend this product to anyone.
