I would gladly pay 2 to 3 times as much for IKEA quality

IKEA - all nuts/ bolts separated  w/ extras, instructions include which box of parts goes with which steps, required tools (usually Allen wrench) included AND detailed pics / dwgs of each step (last one I did for desk was 5 pages total)

This cabinet is 65" wide x 20" deep x about 84" high - 4 main doors  2 minor, 4 drawers (3 of 8 slides broke after several uses), 6 shelves   

Chinese (all 400 screws, nails, hardware in one bag)

Edit:PC crashed - reformatted - need to install more pic editing  software

Had one similar. They delivered and put it together for a few hundred peso. Granted that was ten years ago.

I could tell he had done it a few times because he never even unfolded the instructions…

Drawer slides were the hardest - no location holes - and lock slots didn't align

I really do hate pressboard carp.  It's generally a one time use and moving it causes so many problems it's not worth it.  I suppose it's ok if you never plan to move it.  We have a cabinet like the above and it will not be going into the new house whenever built.  It weighs a ton too.  The only 2 pressboard items we have are because someone died and we bought them to help out the wife.
