Q: Is back & sides of Carson 3 shelf bookcase wood or stiff cardboard?

submitted by Venus - 6 years ago
  • A: The side panels are wood/wood composite and the back panel is essentially rigid cardboard. The shelves are very nice and good quality. No complaints.

    submitted byDan E - 6 years ago
  • A: Back is black paper with tape down the middle. Not a case for a finished back.

    submitted byPhil - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Venus - Thanks for asking. The frame of this bookcase is made of solid wood and the back and side panels are made of wood composite. Hope it works for you! - Nathalie

Q: Are these shelves adjustable? This has already been asked and answered, but the answers were both yes and no. Could someone please give me the definitive answer for the most recent/current version of this bookcase? Thank you.

Q: Can these bookshelves be placed together so that the tops have no gap between the tops? The legs look slightly flared outwards, which might prevent that placement. Thanks.

submitted by Oregirl - 6 years ago
  • A: No, It looks like it but it is not. All 4 legs are straight not angle at all. They are not flared outwards.

    submitted byTarget account - 6 years ago
  • A: Hello Oregirl - Decorating your home is so much fun! This Carson bookcase will display your favorite pieces. The legs are straight and not flared outwards. I hope this helps with the design you have in mind. Enjoy furniture shopping. -Yamell

This is a sturdy bookcase. Works well for my granddaughter’s bedroom, just the right height for a 9 year old. Easy to assemble. Only complaint is that the backing for the bookcase is basically cardboard.

Cheaply made with noticeable dings everywhere. The instructions also indicated there would be pre-drill holes in the back and there were not. So that was a hassle to drill multiple holes for the back panel. The top panel also has a gap.

This was not too difficult for one person to put together. Took a bit more time than expected, however looks great! Plenty of room for what I was looking to accomplish and still space to fill. I would recommend this to my family and friends.

Awkward height and depth of shelves for books. Also has a lip on the top so adding and removing books is challenging. Decent shelf for non-book use.

I bought the white 48" Carson 3 shelf bookcase, which was perfect for our granddaughter's toys, books and especially to hold the T.V. Be sure to anchor shelving and T.V. to the wall. Nice quality for the price. I have other Carson pieces and they are all great.

We ordered 2 of these to hold children’s books They were exactly what we expected. Great for our purpose. If you are looking for a lifelong piece of furniture this is not it but either is the price. I think for the price the quality is good especially compared to some of the junk we looked at.
