Here are the base cabinets and table just after delivery, before assembly. (Sorry for the poor quality phone pictures.)
These items have solid black epoxy resin tops, exactly like the ones found in real school lab classrooms. In fact the vendor, as you might have guessed from the name, supplies this furniture to schools across the country. I actually have some of these exact pieces in my lab at work too! These epoxy tops are expensive, but very resistant to a wide range of chemicals as well as high temperature; perfect for lab work!
The minor problem here is that the lock on the bottom drawer of the left cabinet refuses to unlock, with any of the four sets of keys I was given. I am working with the vendor to resolve this; I think it's a defective lock. Otherwise these pieces look great and I can't wait to assemble them this weekend.
The final piece is the tall cabinet, and this thing is seriously massive.
So lesson learned: not only should you measure the space in the room for your new furniture, you also need to measure the hallway that leads to it!
I'm working with the vendor to figure out what to do. Returning it is going to be a nightmare in extra cost and effort, so currently the most promising option is putting this bad boy in the room next to the lab and ordering another small cabinet to fill the space it was supposed to fit in. We'll see though, and I'll post an update when I figure things out.
