    Exactly what my kitchen needed, AND at a bargain price!!!!

    from Loganville, WI – Verified Buyer

    I just got this yesterday (4 days ahead of schedule) and put it together with my husband last night. It is an absolutely gorgeous, sturdy, roomy piece. We just bought an older farm house without a lot of storage, and this is just what I needed for my kitchenware. That said, my husband and I are fairly handy. I spent about an hour unpacking and organizing the pieces and hardware. Then, it took us about 3.5-4 hours to assemble. Assembly went really well with the included instructions (especially given previous reviews) and is well worth the time. All that said, I just wish it had four locking wheels instead of just two. It would make it just that much more sturdy/ useable. Also, I am considering sealing the top as I plan on using this as a primary work space and could see the top getting all kinds of stained. Pros: Great size. Great materials/ looks expensive. Very useable and well thought out Cons: Only 2 locking wheels. Top is likely to get stained

    Good guality at a great price!

    from Bath, PA – Verified Buyer

    I had been looking for a long time for an island I could live with. I was just about to build one myself when a friend referred me to this site. I looked a few times before I found this one. I came back a few more times before I finally purchased it. I always hesitate to purchase things unseen especially furniture. This cabinet is all that it says it is and more. I absolutely love the pull outs! They give you that extra room when you need them but push in out of the way when you don't. I had read the other reviews and allowed extra time to put it all together. Overall it wasn't all that difficult. Definitely lay out everything before getting started. Also, don't forget to purchase the butcher block oil, as the tops will need to be season before use.

    Gorgeous, well-built and extremely functional

    from Coleville, CA – Verified Buyer

    This kitchen island is absolutely beautiful! It is solid hardwood, well-made, and really useful for both meal preparation and storage. Assembly took a while, but was not difficult. I like that they don't put stickers on all the pieces to identify them (stickers are always impossible to remove and would mar the beauty of this product). The sliding mechanisms are very solid, and everything went together perfectly, no need to make adjustments. This piece is much more solid than most of the kitchen islands we looked at before we decided on this one. Be sure to condition the butcher block with special oils and put on several coats before you use the surfaces, as this ensures the beauty and health of the wood. We would recommend any of the Catskill Craftsmen kitchen islands, based on the quality of ours. Wonderful product!

    Outstanding Island

    from Muscle Shoals, AL – Verified Buyer

    I love this island. It is big, sturdy, and very well built. The butcher block tops are high quality and the drawers glide in and out like a dream. I was able to put my mixer on one of the pull outs and work on prep on the top. The island is so wide that having doors on both sides allow me to take full advantage of the storage space on both shelves without having to pull stuff out to get the the items behind. I would definitely recommend this island to a friend.

    from Jacksonville, FL

    We put it together last night! It's just beautiful!! The directions could be more detailed, but I had no trouble putting this together. I am an experienced assembler and it did still take me over 5 hrs with a friend to put this together. We took our time though, and once we identified the parts based on size and appearance we used a pencil to label each part. That made it easier. The only thing that is odd about it is that both the shelves inside (the floor of the cabinet and the adjustable shelf) are only supported on the edges by metal pins. I'm hesitant to put anything heavy on the shelves because of it. Otherwise, it's beautiful and I can't wait to load it up with stuff and start using it!! :)

    Met All Expectations

    from Commerce Township, MI – Verified Buyer

    All the reviews said the cart was great and we agree. We also saw it was a challenge to put together and did find it time consuming. All parts were unpacked and organized for assembly. We challenged our 20 year old daughter to the task and she delivered! It is a great addition to our kitchen. Wayfair's price and delivery was better than other places to purchase the product and we will look to buy future items through them.

    Functional and attractive.

    from Normal, IL – Verified Buyer

    I found putting this together a bit of a challenge, but the result is a sturdy cart that is very portable. With both sides extended, there is a LOT of surface space. I've begun to sand and seal the surfaces with mineral oil as recommended by others maintaining butcher block tops.

    Looks PHENOMENAL! Beautiful! Fabulous! It is delivered in three boxes! Lots of pieces of wood to put together, but it is worth all the time and effort spent putting it together!

    Great quality though instructions a bit cumbersome. Watching the video in conjunction with printed instructions made it easy.
