Q: What is the top of the desk made out of? Is it wood or wood veneer? The description says metal construction but is that just the base or the whole desk?
A: The veneer top is durable as long as you take care of it appropriately. It wipes up easily and I make sure to keep it dry, as it is a veneer. Overall I love this desk!submitted bymnloving - 6 years ago

A: Very little skill necessary. The entire top/wood part comes already assembled, all you have to do is attach the legs with the screws included. You can do this manually with a screwdriver, but I used a power drill and it was much faster!submitted byMeghan147 - 6 years ago
A: It's very easy to assemble. You attach the metal legs and stand part to the already assembled desk/drawer area. Probably took me less than 10 minutes to fully assemble.submitted bymillermom - 6 years ago

A: The desk body itself is pre-built, even the drawers. You only need to assemble the metal frame and place the desk on top. Took us 15 minutes start to finish and that includes cleaning up the packing materials. We used a drill instead of the allen key.submitted bySusanB - 3 years ago
Q: Can you hide the attached cord when it isn't being used? It doesn't show up in any of the photos.
A: Hi Cheryl – Thanks for viewing our home office furniture! This writing desk has 2 outlets and 2 USP ports in a cubby along the back of the desk. This will allow you to plug in an electric cord or use the port for charging your phone or laptop. Once you plug in your cord, you won’t be able to hide it.
