Catskill Craftsmen is located in Stamford, New York, a small rural village nestled in the northern sections of the Catskill Mountains, at the headwaters of both the Schoharie and Delaware rivers.
Catskill Craftsmen began operations in 1948, and has developed over the years, becoming the nation's leading manufacturer of RTA (ready to assemble) hardwood kitchen islands, carts, and work-centers. The company is privately held, and takes great pride in its products and services.
Sixty dedicated employees work hard to insure that our products are delivered rapidly and meet your satisfaction. Catskill's manufactured items are made from naturally self-sustaining, non-endangered North American hardwoods, primarily birch and hard rock maple.

All sawdust, shavings and waste materials generated during the manufacturing process is converted into wood pellet fuel, and used to heat homes. Catskill is proud to say, "our operations generate no wood waste".
Catskill is also a leading manufacturer of exclusive, private label kitchen workcenters for the trade. Their products are described as "high quality at fair prices".

I love my island! It gives me lots of extra cabinet space as well as a good sized top to prepare foods on. One reason I did not give it 5 stars is it took my fiance' several hours to put it together. He pleaded that I never buy any products from this manufacturer again. The other reason is the piece is not finished. We will need treat the wood to help with possible stains. My 6 year old spilled fruit punch on it and I nearly had a heart attack. I was able to get most of it up before staining but there are a few spots that dripped inside that I missed that are now pink. :( I would only recommend this product if you are very handy to put it together and if you plan to finish it to make it spill proof.
Very nice but room for improvement

Love the size and the quality is good except the inside shelving...the shelves are a little "flimsy" but worse, the pins given were not strong enough to hold the shelving once items were put on the shelves. My husband had to go to the hardware store and get stonger hardware and reinforced both shelves. Too bad, the island is a great size and very sturdy but it seems they "cheaped" out when it came to the iside. All in all, we are very happy with the product. It is attractive, roomy and fairly easy to put together. We would buy this again.
Catskill Kitchen Big Island w/doors
sd from Chicago, IL
The assembly of this island was the only bad part that I'd complain about.[...]. So, I had to assemble it completely (and the instructions werent that great). Took a while. I felt the assembly/instructions from [...] was designed much more user-friendly & intuitive than that of this product's. Once put together and set up in kitchen, this island seems to be useful. Good practical design for everyday use. Best for those (like me) with smaller kitchen space.
Big Island should be Great Island

Great product of beautiful solid wood. Easily assembled and 110% functional. It was purchased for our beach house and as soon as we redo our home kitchen we will be re-ordering.

Exactly what I needed, very roomy. The cutting board top is fantastic. I like that its on wheels I can move it around where ever I need a little extra counter space.

I looked high and low for this cart and thought I found a good one. After trying to put it together is when I noticed that the shelves and end panels were of poor quality. Didn't get all the screws that belonged to it and the box and contents had so much oil on them it left a oil mark on my carpet. Wished my husband didn't throww out the boxes it came in, I would be returning it.
Solid, good quality, well designed islan

This is a well designed island using quality wood. The instructions for assembly were easy to follow. A good buy at this price compared to other internet sites.
Norma from Las Vegas, Nevada
There is so much storage I was able to store 2 crock pots, electric fry pan, Forman grill, pizza machine, food processor, popcorn popper and 20 cookbooks and I still have the drawer to fill. Looks like a fine piece offurniture.

This is a great cabinet made from beautiful hard woods and we love the double sided access
Al from Jackson's Point, Ontario, Canada – Verified Buyer
The advertised dimensions incorrect. Unit advertised as 38" wide but actually 36". Might have bought different design if I had known. Assembly instructions could be clearer for the technically challenged. Casters could be better quality. [...]
