The Brick


My girlfriend has a set of drawers from The Brick.  I never realized how awful their furniture is.  It's basically sawdust held together with glue, and about 1/128th of an inch of actual wood veneer on top.  Any kind of bump breaks this stuff -- the strongest part of the furniture is the fraction-of-a-millimetre thick veneer!  So I cleaned out the break and replaced it with actual wood.
