The garbage bowl in the middle is handy, and the butcher block just looks and feels great. The castor wheels and metal legs do make it look a bit cheap one opened, but for our kitchen that has to be updated anyways, it was probably the nicest looking thing in it! Shelves are great, nothing falls through. Only gripe would be that the hooks, once on, cannot be moved without taking the whole thing apart. Easy to assemble and wheels stay locked in place. Would recommend if you're looking for a different looking small island, instead of the usual square/rectangle ones. Also, the circle actually lets 3 people prep at once without getting in eachother's ways or someone feeling like they're short space.

I'm very happy this unit. Even though it is not completely hardwood, (the side and back panels and shelves are laminated particle board), you'd never know to look at it. The rest is composed of various types of hardwood. Mine looks like a mix of cherry, oak and maple, and looks very similar to the photo. It is a handsome piece. As far as assembly, a couple of screw drivers and a hammer are all the tools required. I'm very handy and it took me about 2.5 hours to completely assemble. Just make sure to read through the entire directions at least once before starting. All of the screw packets are labeled and the ones used in each step are clearly listed, so make sure you use the right ones at each step. The company also has online assembly videos, which I found helpful as well. I only had one problem. A couple of holes in the back panel were drilled in the wrong place preventing assembly. I called Catskill Craftsmen and to their credit, they shipped the replacement part that day, no questions asked. Don't know how common these QA/QC problems occur, but I did read some other reviewers, that had similar problems. Sounded like the company also took care of their problems quickly. The top is exactly 24"x 17". Although the width in the specs say 25.25 that includes the towel bar. Wish I could have gotten the larger size, but we have limited space, so this one was perfect for us. They treat the unit with butcher block oil, but you can apply a permanent finish if desired. They include a pamphlet that explains the types of finishes you can use and which ones not to use, so read that info. before finishing. If you want to use the top surface as a cutting board then you have to periodically treat it with butcher block, as that is only thing that is food safe. Overall very satisfied with the purchase. I hope my review helps.

Sturdy and functional. I love the butcher block top and I get so many compliments on this item. I can't imagine our kitchen without it.

I am very pleased with the Catskill Craftsmen Empire Island Kitchen Cart (#1480), and it arrived sooner than expected. With my husband's help (well, he probably did most of it), we put it together in an afternoon. There were 3 pieces of defective hardware, which was promptly shipped to us upon request to Catskill. The only reason I've given it 4 stars so far is that, even with a small discount, I think it's a bit overpriced. But I think it's a good-looking piece and just the right size for where I need to use it. We recently assembled it and just started using it, so I can't say now how it will withstand regular, long-term use but it seems plenty sturdy. I think I will put a clear coat finish on the lower part (excluding shelves and butcher block top) just for my personal preference. But if the size and look seem to be what you're after, then I really would recommend this for you.

We have been contemplating a butcher block type island for our kitchen. We have a small kitchen with limited counter space. This gives us another great and moveable work surface, PLUS it doesn't take up the entire kitchen. Assembly was easy but the top is heavy. After some months of use, 6+ months, it does have a bit of wiggle in the legs and we've tried tightening everything again. Still a great piece for our needs. I recommend an initial GENEROUS and regular treatment with a good quality butcher block oil especially if you intent to use the surface for cutting. I use one with lemon and orange oil and it keeps the top nice without absorbing any food odors.

My fiance was looking for just the right butcher block / island for our kitchen, and this is it. The container for discarded food parts is great for our composting, and the side drawer holds his knives perfectly. He prepared the wood by rubbing it with natural food grade mineral oil for weeks...he recommends this to anyone needing additional workspace in the kitchen!

This is exactly what you would expect from Catskill. We own a very nice Butcher block from them. Their products are excellent quality. Overstock.com also surprised us with very fast delivery. I expected next week and received it yesterday. But CUSTOMER SERVICE is not what I have been reading on here. I am told their customer service is very good. IT IS NOT!. I chatted on line with a customer service rep because the product came without instructions. Here is what he told me. Reagan: In this case, I'll forward a message to our Parts Department to help you with the assembly instructions. Reagan: Our Parts Department has an access to check into the availability of the parts and ship in 2-5 business days. Then he asked "Have I addressed your concern today? I said: Not really. But thank you anyway. I got off and immediately did a google and found the Catskill website that not only had the PDF instructions but video's on how to do everything. Why did he not tell me that?

I love my butcher block.! Wasn't hard to assemble the couple things (only hard for me to LIFT it!!!) HAHA! But I'm very happy with it. Looks GREAT in my kitchen and everyone compliments and asks where I got it!
