The item is perfect for the space, with a relatively small footprint and a well-supported drop leaf. The only issues were in assembly, as some screws were missing and some parts were mislabeled.

Up front, anyone ordering this island needs to know that assembly will be very time consuming and involve a lot of parts. It arrives in two flat, heavy boxes and took about three hours for one person (an engineer) to assemble with a second person staying one step ahead reading instructions and organizing components. You will need to supply your own hammer and screw drivers. The directions are ok - some sections were not clear and took longer than necessary to figure out. But if you take your time and carefully read through everything first, you should be ok. Once the unit is assembled, it looks very nice - solid wood with a substantial butcher block top. So why only four stars? Despite being happy with the piece, the effort to put it together definitely weighs into this review. Also, I would have liked for the back of the unit to have the same smooth finish as the front and sides. Instead, it is more unfinished with a slightly rougher feel. Since I am using this as a breakfast bar in the center of my kitchen, the back is visible. If you will be placing this against a wall, then it won't matter. Most people will never even notice the difference but just know what to expect if you plan to keep the breakfast bar extended. If the features suit your needs and you are up for the challenge of assembling this, then you will be happy with the end result.

I bought this Catskills island for my small kitchen to have more working space. Itís came well packed and with all instructions how to assemble. It took me some time to put together, but I do not have any skills, I will rephrase I did not have any skills before. I put together and the cabinet looks so good!!! The more I use the more I love it. Overstock thank you :)

This cart was very easy to assemble - I did it by myself in 1.5 hours, however, additional hands would have been nice. The middle shelf had a piece that was loose, but I faced pulled it off and placed it in the back so it isn't noticeable. I use this as a countertop substitute between refridge and oven on a wall that has no cupboards, so having it face the back is just fine. I think it could probably be re-attached easily. The attachment hardware for the butcher block top was difficult to get in and I ended up just wedging them in there as there wasn't enough space for a screw driver, much less a power driver, to install. However, I don't plan on lifting the top at all, so I don't think it will be an issue. Overall, assembly and finished product was great. It is very beautiful and goes great with my kitchen decor. I would buy it again.

Love this cart! Beautiful hardwood, substantial butcher block top. I would have preferred the butcher block be unfinished so it could be used to cut food without a cutting board. Also, some pieces were a bit off-center, but the assembly went smoothly in spite of this. I would recommend this item. Great price too.

I absolutely love this Butcher-Block table. It is solid (very heavy) and the wood is beautiful. It is just what I imagined it would be like. It was not difficult to put together. I just had to be patient and follow the directions step-by-step. The drawer assembly is very nice and the wonderfully wide drawer glides in and out beautifully. The price was several hundred dollars less than I found it anywhere else. The quality was also much better than any of the similar pieces that I looked at in stores. I am thrilled with this purchase!

My son and I took several days to assemble this cart. It was relatively easy, with good instructions. Unfortunately, two of the metal drawers were defective. I called Catskill, and they promptly sent out two replacement baskets. I did not even need to return the old ones. The cart is made of high quality wood, and looks even better with butcher block wax.

I bought this as a Mother's Day gift to myself a year ago I have a small kitchen and could never fit the beautiful islands I saw online. This is perfect. It was easy to assemble. It is quite sturdy and has given me so much additional storage space. It weighs over 100 pounds. It is worth it's weight in gold for me.

From the quality of the craftsmanship to the attention to design detail, including a 'soft close" drawer mechanism, this is a butcher block that dreams are made of. Incredibly easy assembly and the perfect shade eggplant is the perfect color for my kitchen. The delivery was literally through the front door, no problem! An incredible experience.

This was the perfect size for a microwave stand for out kitchen. It was not difficult to put together, but do as the instructions say and do not tighten up anything until assembled. You need a lot of wiggle room.

I treated myself to this cart because I was fed up with my existing one (cheap materials, the top kept coming unattached and flipping everything off and it wasn't a good fit in my kitchen). The cart looks exactly like the online photograph and description. I ordered it to fit in my (to me) tiny kitchen that has no prep area to speak of and I needed it to be narrower than my existing cart. Unlike other carts in this price range it is mostly solid wood, made in the USA and fits together nicely. I have had another cart made by this company that wasn't thrilling, but that was some years ago so I took a chance and glad I did. I fit most of it together myself (I am retired, not handy), needing my son-in-law only to help with final assembly. I oiled the cart well after assembly and repeated this a week later; the cart looks great. It has a useful drawer, and the shelf and cupboard are also well sized. The sides have narrow shelves that take spices and condiments and I am using S hooks to hold cutting boards and measuring cups and spoons on the rather narrow towel bars at each end. I particularly love the arrangement of the drop leaf along the length of the cart. That allows the cart to be narrow and so a good fit in my kitchen. It makes a really useful prep area when I am baking or fixing a dinner party. Overstock has an excellent price on this item; I highly recommend it.

The product came well packaged, undamaged and fortunately in 3 boxes - it's Oak, it's heavy! Total assembly was required, but I got perfectly cut & drilled and nicely sanded pieces plus good instructions. I like this kind of project, but it is not for the feint of heart!! When it was all put together and rolled into my kitchen, I was thrilled and proud. It hasn't gotten too much use because my husband is afraid to spill anything on it - a little fear is a healthy thing!

The cabinet is a good size, white not ivory in color, but ridiculously hard to put together. I didn't have a problem w/ broken parts, however I was missing two pegs. I'll see if I can get a couple sent to me. Overstock.com is pretty good about that stuff. If not I'll e-mail the manufacturer. We'll see how long the piece lasts.

Not fun to assemble but very sturdy and nice looking. This island has been a life saver in my kitchen. The butcher block on it is done wonderfully.

This cart is easy to assemble and quite sturdy. I bought it to use as a microwave cart and mine is large. The only issue with this item is 8 metal dowels that fit end to end, sharing the same holes to sustain interior and exterior shelves. They fit loosely, so you must have glue to put on the ends of the dowels to make them stationary. Very good cart for the price!

The island was not difficult to assemble. We thought the wood color on the front piece of the drawer was a lighter than the rest of the island, so we called the company and they sent another, darker piece immediately, which matched the rest of the island perfectly. The wood is beautiful and the quality is great. We now need to put the Butcher's Oil on the island; I know it will be even more attractive with that on it.

Very substantial, looks great. Assembly took about 3 hrs with 2 people. Great price too! Perfect size in my kitchen, does not compete with my cherry cabinetry. Used the butcher block oil recommended on the top and it looks really nice. The drawers are perfect size for sheet pans. If you need a medium sized island for your kitchen this is a perfect buy!

This item was advertised of being made of wood and rubber. The top is wood, but the balance is partical board and the screws for assembly strip out easily.

I was skeptical about purchasing an "assembly required" cart for my kitchen, but took a chance based on the other reviews I saw for this particular one. I am not disappointed - the cart looks sturdy, and well crafted, not "cheap." It was relatively easy to assemble (though two small pieces were missing that I needed to procure myself). The wheels and locking mechanisms are good quality, and the cart stays in place when the the locks are engaged. The two shelves below the heavy butcher block top hold plenty of items, including heavier pieces. I have put my mixing bowls on the shelves, making them much easier to grab when I need them. All in all, a nice looking addition to the kitchen, providing additional storage and counter work space.

Take your time assembling, it will all fit very nicely.
