Solid oak-no particleboard-back is oak covered MDF.
The rack is constructed using solid red oak which offers strength and durability.. The CD storage racks are hand finished with a Watco Danish oil called medium walnut and on the solid red oak wood, it gives you the color of Honey (pictured above). No two pieces of wood will accept the same stain therefore colors may vary slightly. Tongue in groove joinery (no screws used). Shipped fully assembled. ( On the larger units, you will need to install the feet.)
Very High Quality08/21/2012 ByDouglas Hawks This CD rack is very well constructed with solid wood and craftsman-type joints and finished in a beautiful honey oak stain & glaze. The only self-assembly required was screwing on the feet. Considering the price, this is quite a value. It looks lovely in my listening room.
