I needed more work space in my compact mini kitchen. Furthermore, the quality of the Mfg. workmanship is impressive especially for the price. I treated the butcher block top with mineral oil and I have done so every few days as instructed. But, I have two butcher blocks that I will always use instead of the top to this piece of furniture. After I clean my butcher block, I slide them on the shelf plus my potatoes and onions holders and my 3 dog treat cannisters. Perfect, this solved several problem areas in my kitchen. I have down sized as I have retired and I have yet to get everything organized and Overstock is helping my house get organized little by little. TY Mfg. and Overstock, I would have never found this type of quality and furniture in the area I reside. Oops, UPS delivered it early, who would have thought?

I like this kitchen island very well. I ordered a second one as I saw that my kitchen could easily accommodate two. With two islands instead of one larger I could arrange them in different ways. Fast delivery.

Love this island, not too big but big enough. Would definitely recommend this for someone needing a little more countertop space. Looks like a more expensive item than its actual price.

I love it! It's small and fits perfectly in the small space that I had made for it therefore giving me much needed extra counter top space. I like the shelf on the bottom. It holds my paper towels and napkins that I otherwise had no room for.

This butcher's block was exactly what I was looking for: solid wood, sturdy, well made quality construction without spending a fortune. After returning a self-assembly kitchen island to a store, having found the instructions for assembly unintelligible and parts missing, this fully assembled unit only needed unpacking and it was ready for use. It doesn't look like the really expensive kitchen islands/butcher's blocks that are several times the price, but it's a great value and I would definitely recommend it.

I had the Little Red River Kitchen Island in my kitchen for a year now and it's just as sturdy and beautiful as it was the day that I installed it. It arrived boxed very well and fully assembled. I was so relieved having not to assemble another item. Little Red River Kitchen Island is painted very well, beautiful warm color that compliments my kitchen design. There is a storage area near the bottom of the table serves to old my short folding ladder that I use to reach items in upper kitchen cabinets. I love the butcher block top for cutting veggies. However, I rarely use it for that because it's so nice and I have granite block that I prefer to use for that. I use the butcher block top as an eating area where I sit, rest, eat and watch some boob-tube prior to completing my meal preps. I am thinking about ordering another Little Red River Kitchen Island to widen its area to a longer island. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!!

I wanted a sturdy work table to anchor my hand crank grain mill to. This small kitched island it ideal. Small enough to turk in a corner of my pantry. The Butcher Block top is think and the table is heavy and strong. Made in America is an extra plus for me.

We were looking for a kitchen cart to nestle in a pantry window alcove and this fit the bill. It is incredibly well made and even my husband agrees and he's not a fan of "build your own furniture". It was easy to put together, has a great butcher block top, and is all wood. I looked around at other places selling the same cart and O was nearly $100 dollars less than most. It would be worth buying at a $100 increase, but why should you. It really is cherry (not red), and that is perfect because we have a larger cherry island and it goes perfectly. We are so very pleased with the purchase.

Ordered this cart based on other reviews and wasn't disappointed. It's very sturdy and looks great in my off white kitchen. The color in the picture is more red than the actual color on my cart. It's more of a dark chestnut. The butcher block top had a few scratches on the bottom but didn't show after it was assembled. One slat on the middle shelf wasn't attached like the others but nothing I couldn't fix with a few drops of wood glue. Otherwise, I would've given it 5 stars. Easy to assemble. My microwave and toaster oven fit on it perfectly. Love the heavy duty, locking wheels and the fact that the towel bars don't stick out (they're flush with the sides).

Really solid, good quality kitchen cart, especially when you have seen the laminated particle board junk that gets sold in the same price range. A note about the finish: I took a shot, feeling that the picture probably didn't portray it well. I was right. The pic IMO makes the finish appear to be a low-gloss, fairly solid stain. The actual product has a lot of nice, natural wood grain showing through, is a semi-gloss finish, and the color isn't as 'rusty' as the color shown on my monitor. It falls somewhere between a cherry and a walnut finish, in my eyes. If you're feeling put off by the opaque, barn red sort of finish that the low resolution picture shows, and are looking for something with more of a natural wood look with a warm, medium brown stain...go for it. It's a nice solid stand that looks much nicer in person. And the butcher block top weighs a ton. I'm very pleased.

My table came with a broken butcher block top! I really wanted to keep it, but Overstock said they had no more black ones. I asked to have the top replaced, and that I would fix the table. After 2 weeks of emails back & forth with Overstock, and no resolution, I finally just decided to return it for refund...the table itself is solid, heavy, and accurately pictured, but very rough (entire thing needed sanding) and its' craftsmanship is very elementary. You cannot dust this table off because your cloth would get snagged on it!! I bought this table after reading all the positive reviews and because it's made in the USA! I gave it 3 stars because if the top was not broken, I would have kept it and finished it myself!!

Super fast shipment, excellent quality and not too difficult to put together. It looks red on the pictures but it's really dark brown. I'm very happy with the purchase.

They should change the picture for this item because it's not even remotely red. It's a cherry wood which is a dark wood tone with very, very little red tint to it. With that said, the quality seemed very good. The whole unit is solid wood including the top which is nice. It only took about 45 minutes to assemble and the instructions and diagrams were pretty good. Overall, I think it's a very good cart for the money. If only it were red!

Better quality then I expected for price when received. Looked painted red in picture but is cherry wood look when received which gives it a richer look. Top is heavy block not flimsy at all. Pleased with purchase.

Great for the money as the local shi-shi store is selling for 500.00. It looks red on the web site but it is actually a walnut stain wood (which I prefer). It is sturdy and well made . Easy to put together. Get one!

I really love the look of this piece. The cart is well constructed and easy to put together. The only thing is the drawer is sticky and sometimes comes off track, but it's really not that big of a deal. I love the color. It is more of a cherry finish then 'red' as it looks in the picture. Beautiful! We're using it as a microwave cart and it works great.

It is actually nicer than the picture. Nice cherry wood stain instead of the red color in the picture and the cutting board is much thicker than the description. Nice solid piece especially for the price. Only complaint - there was a little peg missing when putting it together. We were able to use a wood screw and it all worked out fine. Over all I'm super happy with it.

The original cart came damaged from shipping. After dealing with the factory, Overstock sent out a new cart, then realized they could get the part and sent that out too. Great customer service.The cart itself is nice and heavy-duty. It looks great and is a very nice cherry color, but not too red as some are. Perfect size. Husband had no problem putting it together. Would highly recommend this. It looks much more expensive than it was.

This is a wonderful kitchen cart. I bought it to roll under my kitchen counter where a cabinet should have been. Debated about putting in a new cabinet, but decided that this cart would store my pretty ceramic bowls and provide some extra pull out work space. I knew it would be an inch too tall and gambled that I could put different wheels on to make that happen, which is what I did. Lowe's had some wonderful smaller, rubber wheels that are better on my hard wood floors and it fits perfectly. I thought it was a red painted color from looking at the picture and was initally disappointed that it wasn't red, but the cherry stain actually is better and makes it look high end. One of the reviews I read said that the drawer was flimsy, but I am storing all my knives in it and it doesn't seem flimsy. I did have to plane the drawer a little and use some soap to make it glide better, but that was a quick easy fix. I shopped around on line for this cart for 2 days and saved over $50.00 getting it at Overstock.com. I am thrilled!
