Q & As


John Lewis Abacus Narrow Filing Cabinet 4.4 5 25 25
Very useful The filing cabinet is great to buy with the abacus desk. It matches the desk well and is a great fit. It was fairly to difficult to assemble and took over two hours because we had difficulty with the cam locks. Otherwise a good quality product. 18 December 2013
Smaller is better This cabinet is easy to assemble and doesn't really require 2 people at all. The quality is exceptional, with an expensive feel and finish. The only thing I don't like is the feet, so I didn't fit them and it looks better for that omission. What really amazes me is the small size compared to our old metal cabinet. This is due to the file size being A4 rather than foolscap. Highly recommended. 17 December 2013
Great Buy Bought to sit alongside the Abacus Desk and fits a treat. 17 December 2013
nice filing cabinet Product requires assembly, came well packed and the instructions are easy to follow. It took about 40 minutes to assemble and now I have a nice piece of furniture which is functional. 26 November 2013
Great product Really nice product. Well made, looks and works great. But you MUST foilow instructions VERY carefully, particularly fitting the drawrunners (need to pay special attention to the diagrams) and assembling drawers as prefitted dowels are not of equal length. Getting this wrong is possibly why previous reviewers had trouble with assembly. The instructions should point this out more explicitly. Would have been 5 stars but for this. Takes about one hour with care and well worth the effort. 20 September 2013
Abacus Filing Cabinet Like the appearance. Much better veneer than the Loft desk which we had also ordered. 17 April 2013
Be aware this is not all wood The product info says this is a "solid oak and veneer filing cabinet". However the drawer box is foil-coated. Furthermore it is not oak foil but a different colour, probably beech. Disappointing as the drawer base IS oak foil. This is easy to assemble but there is one extra instruction which will help enormously when you make this up: make sure the camlocks are inserted in their holes with the arrow pointing to the edge of the wood - then the connecting bolts will go in easily. Unlike a regular metal cabinet you cannot fully open the drawers and there is no lock. 22 March 2013
Good Solid Furniture Easy to assemble and solidly constructed. Really practical and attractive storage. 23 October 2012
