I bought this cart in the color wenge. It is more beautiful and rich looking in person. I bought this cart to replace a cart I bought at Ikea about 5 years ago. The Ikea cart was really a laundry cart with a particle wood top. I use this cart in my salon for a tabletop water cooler and coffee maker. The top of the old cart kept getting wet and ruining the top, so I found this cart with a real granite top. There were many carts with a faux granite top that cost more than this one did, but I'm glad I bought this cart. The wenge color is more like a rich reddish brown and it matches the salon furniture perfectly. I love this cart, it has a wine rack, a drawer for forks, spoons, wine opener, etc. I use the basket for the coffee pods and cups. It fits great in small spaces, and has a very elegant stream line look. Someone said this cart was hard to put together, I did not find that to be the case. I thought it was very easy to put together. Don't get intimated by all the pieces, all of the pieces are labeled by letters. Follow the pictures on the instructions and make sure all of the letter pieces are lined up correctly and you will not have a problem. You will need a screwdriver and when you are ready to put the wheels on, hit them one time with a hammer, to make sure they are thoroughly attached.
Great product for the price

Our natural wood cart arrived just a few days after ordering. All of the pieces fit together well, and most of the pieces were of decent quality. However, two pieces had defects in the wood joints, so we requested replacement parts, which arrived in about a week and were ok -- not great, but ok. Each long piece is jointed in several places, and no effort was made to match the wood. The parts we had replaced had bad-fitting joints that were puttied over and stained an odd yellow. The ones that arrived to replace them had badly matched wood but at least the joints were not defective. The cart comes in a dark stain also, which likely won't have the same issues ours does with bad wood joints, but we wanted to stain ours pecan to match our kitchen instead of using the dark version. Note that if you are going to stain your natural color cart, it comes with a clear coating that does not take stain well. We used MinWax tinted finish instead of stain, and with several coats we achieved the color we wanted. All in all, it's a good product for just over $100 if you're willing to request replacements for bad parts. The wheels work well, the granite top is excellent, and the drawer and shelves are just fine. It fits inside our pantry, right under the counter-height shelf, and serves its purpose very well -- wheeling out cooking materials from the pantry to the stove area.

All in all we're pretty happy with this functional little cart. It was relatively easy to assemble although the directions weren't clear enough and resulted in some reassembly. The only major criticism we have is that there were no "buttons" included to fill the rather large bolt holes that are now visible on the sides of the cart (12 in total) leaving it with a somewhat unfinished look! We reported this issue to the manufacturers rep and recommended that they include these buttons in the future but for now I guess we'll just have to go out and buy some ourselves. Also wish it came in different colors//finishes to match other darker kitchen decors.
Linon Ledgeview Kichen Cart with Granite Top
Myra R. from Santa Rosa, CA
My husband and I needed to work together to overcome errors in the diagrammatic instructions- and there were multiple errors. For starters, the manufacturer failed to indicate back, front, top and bottom on the assembly steps. For those of us who are not carpenters, it made the assembly very difficult and time-wasting. A person needs more than two hands to drop in the nuts and screw the pieces together. The wood is poorly matched and there was minor damage on several of the pieces. The granite top is a nice touch, but is only attached by two small dowels. Adding some type of adhesive might definitely secure the top better, as another viewer suggested. The overall look of the cart is very appealing and does allow us to get bowls of fruits and fresh veggies off our kitchen counter, creating more work space. Personally, I would have paid a little more for better-matched and higher quality wood.
Attractive cart, beautiful granite top
Hans from Jackson, GA – Verified Buyer
The size is just right for my microwave, it looks and feels fairly high quality, and the granite top surpassed my expectations--really beautiful. It arrived very well packaged, so no damage. Assembly took about two hours. Make sure to study the instructions for a few minutes first because there are a couple of steps that may trip you up if don't pay attention to the subtle details. During assembly, the cart's frame felt sturdy enough. But after putting on the granite top--it must weigh 20-25 pounds by itself--and adding the weight of my microwave to it, it seems slightly less stable now, and I am a little concerned that it may be too top-heavy. That is the only reason I didn't rate it five stars. I've been using it for about two weeks, though, and so far, it works well and meets my needs. Well worth the price.
Great microwave cart but parts smelled awful
Erica from San Francisco, CA – Verified Buyer
There was a really strong stench coming from the box before it was even opened. It smelled like gasoline or some kind of industrial chemical, and it turned out it was coming from the wheels/casters (maybe the rubber and/or the grease?). The odor was so overpowering and nauseating we had to throw the wheels away. Other than that, the cart was easy enough to assemble, looks good, and is sturdy enough for a microwave. It is fully functional without the wheels as a stationary cart. I would've given it 5 stars if it weren't for the smell.
Good quality and easy to assemble
LACY from San Leandro, CA – Verified Buyer
I bought this cart for our standing mixer. It's sturdy, holds all of our mixer attachments and accessories, moves well on casters, wheels also lock in place, and looks like the picture. The cart was delivered quickly. Like another review, there was a strong chemical odor when we opened it, but from product not the casters. It went away in about a day or two. The assembly instructions were easy to follow. It took about an hour. It's great for a small kitchen in need of additional counter space.

I looked and looked for the perfect Kitchen Cart and I finally found it in this Ledgeview Cart. Very well made not too big, nice cutting surface, slots for wine, wire basket for potatoes, garlic and onions, nice large drawer moves around easily...and the price was 1/3 of the other carts that were compreble.
Ellen from Parkville, MD – Verified Buyer
This looks even better in person than in the pictures. It was very easy to assemble. Gives us extra storage space, and the granite top is not only beautiful, it makes a much-needed extra work surface. And having wheels just makes this perfect. Buy it!
Nice but some issues
Cristina from Blue island, IL – Verified Buyer
This is a very pretty cart with a REAL granite top, which actually surprised me because other items I ordered with "marble" tops were imitation. The cart looks so nice in my kitchen. Put together easily in an hour by myself. Probably faster if I had someone help. Issues- mostly allen wrench needed to put together, which is great, but one of the screws was missing the stamped whole, so part of the cart isn't secure. Overall, it was pretty easy to put together.
