John Lewis Abacus 3 Drawer Filing Cabinet
On the plus side this cabinet looks nice.
However it is not solid wood so I do not feel it is worth the price point
The instructions were ok but a bit unclear in places
My biggest complaint is the product had not been prepared properly . Some of the pre drilled holes had not been drilled through to the cavity were the device to receive the bolts sits . This was on a significant/one of the biggest components. We had to drill the holes ourselves which split the wood compromising the strength. Can not recommend .

3 draw filing cabinet
Despite the slightly faded pictures in the instructions this was remarkably easy to construct (and we are not DIY enthusiasts). It is now an attractive and very functional part of our study.

tweaking the instructions!
Excellent customer service and delivery as usual from J Lewis. But would not put camlocks in until the connecting bolts are in and sides/top being out together as it becomes fiddley as the camlocks openings often do not sit exactly where you want them to accept the bolts.
Matches our office, a definite improvement.

Fantastic storage unit for my study
Even although this arrives flat packed the instructions were really clear to follow with extra screws & bolts included ! Once built the look & feel is fantastic and easy to find the right size of hanging files. I love it and it has really boasted the look of my study where I work from home. All the drawers run very easily. Really impressed with it.

don't do it!
We were disappointed when it arrived as it it not wood but laminated chipboard. Having built the unit we now find that we can't open the draws using the handles but need to lift the draws from the bottom and in the case of the bottom draw by squeezing the sides of the draw to get a grip. Save yourself the hassle and avoid this product.

Quality product, easy to assemble and looks good
A very solid quality filing cabinet that is easy to assemble and looks good. Shame the full instructions were not included though.

John Lewis Abacus 3 Drawer Filing Cabinet, Oak
This is a nice looking cabinet and very sturdy. Fairly easy to build providing you adhere strictly to instructions. (Found this very easy with the wife acting as supervisor). Two people necessary for certain parts of construction. Very pleased with this purchase.
