I had trouble finding a cart in white of the dimensions and style I wanted, so I was fairly sure I would want to paint this. All else being what I wanted, I purchased it and am glad I did. We did paint it white and it blends perfectly at the end of the kitchen counter. The quality is good: doors fit and close properly; wheels are adequately sturdy, not wimpy, cheap things and the shelves are sturdy, easily support heavy mixing bowls, small appliances.. The drawer is a good size and slides well. It wasn't difficult to assemble but in so many pieces took some time. All things considered, it's a very nice unit.
I shopped in my area but did not find a cart in the dimensions and style that I wanted for my kitchen. So I looked online. This one was perfect for my needs. It came quickly. Be aware that the box is HEAVY. UPS left it on my front doorstep and it took all my strength to bring it inside just a few feet. I am a single woman and I needed the help of a friend to assemble it. It's so much easier with two people/4 hands. The instructions could have been a little more detailed in my opinion, but with the help of my friend we worked out the puzzle. It is well worth the time to go to the Catskill Craftsman website and watch the videos on how to assemble - otherwise I would not have had a clue. The quality of the material is very good and once it is put together this cart is very sturdy. I am impressed with this made in USA product! One part had a problem with the holes not being drilled in the correct places, so I called the company and they shipped the replacement part immediately. I love my new butcher block cart!!
We bought this for our office break room. It looks great. Everyone wants one for their own kitchens. It is a great product. However, I had to call National Assembly Services, as the manufacturer recommended, to put it together for $$. Yes, there is a video online, but the demonstrator uses power tools and obviously has off-camera help, while the directions say that you only need a few basic hand tools. The NAS representative, who was great, took about an hour and half to put it together because nothing was labeled. There was no "put tab A into slot B" here. You need to have someone with furniture-assembly experience at the helm. If you enjoy woodworking projects and have time on your hands, this is the product for you. If you want a great product and have no skill or time, buy this and call NAS.
