Perfect furniture for people who love puzzles. Two engineers, a carpenter, and almost 4 hours later we had a kitchen cart. Directions were clear enough though. Really, you're paying for the solid wood top which is fine by me. Drawers slide easily, shelves accommodate handles of booze, and size is perfect for the space. Did I mention it took over 3 hours to assemble this?

Quick Review (and detailed review below)
This is worth the money if you know how to use critical thinking when it comes to building stuff. Some screw holes will be the wrong size, shelf railings put incorrectly and so on.
Great size. Love the collapsable cutting board/table.
Bottom line, save your money if you're looking for an easy build that'll take very little time. However, if u know your way around a hammer (AND have help), or you're willing to hire someone, then buy it.
As soon as i opened the package, i noticed, what i thought might have been, a broken shelf or cabinet wall. I figured the shipping was responsible, so i remained positive. I do an items check and make sure i have all the parts. Start following the directions.
Steps 1-3 were easy. Heres where i have the issue: Steps 4-6 require you to build a great portion of the cabinet, with the use of only dowels!(the cylinder wooden things) Even with a second person, its impossible since there arent any screws holding other parts in place. Also, dowels usually have a tight fit. These dowels (or holes) were the wrong size!, making the dowels fall out, thus, parts wouldnt stay together. I had to skip to the ending, to see when in the instructions will i be using screws again.
At the end of the day I had to put it together my way and not the instructions. Aside from the poor instructions and poorly sized dowel holes, The door hinges werent misaligned by about an INCH!!! I had to drill new holes, and make measurements.
All in all, this coulda been a fun build. I built it alone and it took me a very long time since i had to do a lot of improvisation. I am happy with the end product, however, i am not happy I paid over 300 dollars for this. Thats actually what made me work so hard at it, to protect my investment. :-) Oh..and one more thing, you will need tools. I used a hammer, screw driver (drill) allen key, you might need wood glue if you plan on building alone, just please use caution, or use a tiny bit, just enough for the dowels to gain enough friction to stay in place. Good luck.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is pretty good.
This cart was a great value for the quality and price of this unit. We researched many carts before purchasing this one. Most of them ranged from $xxx to $xxx. We paid about $xxx for this unit. After it was put together, I wondered how the drawers and doors would hold up to being repeatedly being opened and closed. To our delight, it looks as good one year after we purchased it than it did upon receipt There has been no chipping of paint and the aspen wood counter still looks brand new. Thank you, Overstock, for providing such a great product at a great price!
It was difficult to put together. The system they have to secure the top does not work. The boards they use to hold up the leaf
is faulty and does not keep the leaf level with the top. I love the look of the cart, but would not recommend it.
I was a little disappointed with the cart. It was a gift and costs over $XXX.XX so i researched it and read reviews. I knew it would be tough to assemble (which it was) but i was not expecting it to be missing hardware! This cart was supposed to have a towel rack on one side and spice rack on the other, i received 2 sets of towel rack hardware so i was unable to attach the spice rack. I remember reading other reviews that mentioned missing or wrong parts but thought it was an accident. Looks like its commonplace to send the wrong parts. Bottom line, good price but now i know why.
I love the new kitchen cart. We have limited space in our kitchen and we needed more counter space and cupboard space
and this provided both. We can pull it out and put the extra top up and we have an island to work on as well. It is built well, and is
very stylish. Everyone has commented on it and how nice it is. I would recommend this to everyone who needs extra space in
their small kitchen. It is also very roomy inside with deep drawers and two very nice size shelves. Great buy!!!
Worst experience ever trying to put something together. Iíve put two similar but smaller units of this type together recently and they were nowhere close to this much aggravation. Iíll never purchase this brand again.
Quality control not very good, the head of the screws that hold on the casters are too small and the screws are of poor quality. One broke with little torque applied. I had to get washers to keep the screws from pulling through the holes in the caster mount.
Several of the surfaces look like ďBĒ stock items with marks, stains and such here and there.
The pegs used to push parts together fit way too loosely and will not hold the parts together so that you can turn loose of what you have put together without it falling apart. I put bits of paper towel in the peg holes on most of them to give any kind of grip to keep them together. There are fine hair like fibers in the packaging that are irritating to the skin.
The instructions are very poor.
Two parts marked with wrong part number.
Once put together itís ok. Looks pretty good, casters donít roll easily on carpet, not solidly sturdy, but, lots of storage and suits my needs.
Pros Storage Space, Looks ok
Cons Difficult assembly, quality control, not real sturdy
I would like to trim the top in order to fit an area in my kitchen. Is it a solid wood top that can be cut down?cindycounter on Jun 19, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello cindycounter, the top of the Aspen 3-drawer Kitchen Cart is made from rubber wood, which is solid wood. The rest of the cabinet is made from engineered wood, which is made of a mixture of wood held together with adhesives. I hope this helps! Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 20, 2014
This requires item does require a bit of assembly as it has 22 parts. If you read the reviews, they indicate different experiences of customers putting this item together. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 12, 2013
It took the wife and I a few hours to get this thing together but ended up not getting the bottoms for the drawers in the package. Overstock got us the parts in a little over a week.yooper77 on Mar 14, 2013
it was not to hard took about an hour 2 peoplerdrunner73 on Mar 29, 2013
I think this item needs a video, youtube or something to help put it together. Things are not lining up correctly. Hard to put together. 8 hours later and still not together yet.nelliekellie on Apr 7, 2013
My son in law put this together for me but I am pretty sure I could have done it myself. I am a 64 year old woman. The instructions with it were very good and all parts were separated and labeled.catnjb6598 on Jan 2, 2014
