can the top be used as a cutting board/butcher block?
My fiancé spent 4 hours today trying to put this piece together and didn't make a dent. Why on Earth wouldn't the company label the pieces? The directions are so confusing. I know it will be nice when it's done, but there really isn't a need to torture people. It's not a cheap piece of furniture. I expected better/ more clear directions....

The instructions that came with the kitchen island were vague in come cases. Along the way of putting it together, you needed to try to see how the bolts and set screws fit together. There was not a clear explanation of that process. Because my husband was in the trades he was able to get the island together with only one mistake. We had the doors on upside down and had to take half of the island apart to reverse them. There again the explanation and picture were not clear. All in all it did come out very nice but in total time to put it together it took us 9 hours.Read More
beautiful piece of furniture. The best one I ever owned. I knew it would be it was made in the USRead More
Wood is of high quality, smooth and unblemished. Once assembled, unit is very stable and attractive. Finished product is comprable to units costing twice as much and more. The only down side is the number of pieces and difficulty aligning them properly. It took three hours to fully assemble product but the end results were well worth the effort. Would definitely purchase this product again.Read More
I love this cart. The size is perfect for my kitchen, but OH MY putting it together was a nightmare. My husband and I worked on it and after 2 hours finally said forget it. My son and daughter in law came down and it took about 4 hours for them get it almost put together right at the end we discovered that one piece was missing. My son and husband ( not to be out done) made that piece so they could finish the cart. I have called and they said they would send the missing piece (will have to take some apart to replace). Seems to me they could put the thing partly together or all the way. We would have gladly paid extra for shipping. After saying all that negitive I really do like the cart. Would give this a five star if it wasn't for the putting it together.Read More
This product is very well built. It meets all my needs. Upon delivery and inspection I found I was missing 1 brace. I called the service number as directed and they shipped me a replacement part immediately. (no questions asked)Read More
I would suggest you mark the wood parts better (left right front back) and how they are assembled. The way the unit goes together with allen set screws is not the best way or easiest for assembly. I put other furniture together that had a spin locking system which made it tighter and assemble with less parts. It took 5 hrs to assemble. After it was together is was fine.Read More
I am enjoying the island tremendously. It's functional and does not take up a lot of space. It provides that little bit of extra work space that my kitchen needed while easily moves when not in use. It was not easy to put together. The instructions were not complete enough and would only recommend the product if someone had good handyman skills. I am going to send the company some suggestions that would make the installtion easier. There was a missing part but the company was apologetic and promptly sent me a replacement.Read More
We just assembled the Island yesterday so I can't speak about durability at this point but the Island itself is very solid. The wood pieces fit together snugly and the overall design is good. The final product actually does look like the picture once assembled so you really do get what you order. The wood grains are really beautiful but I suppose this is random because all wood has different grain and colors.The directions were average. The pieces of wood were not labeled with letters or numbers so I suggest putting a label on each piece of wood before you get started. The masking tape we used left a little but of a mark on the wood which took a little bit of rubbing to remove afterwards. Maybe you come up with a better labeling idea.Overall, very pleased with the purchase. Its just the right size and it looks very high end given the wood texture and design. Nice storage on the sides and behind the front doors.Read More
