This is a beautiful piece of furniture --- and it is significantly less expensive than I would expect to see for anything comparable. It's solid wood, good-sized, and well-designed! I expect to have it for many years, if not decades. I'd guess they can offer this beautiful furniture since the customer will be putting it together. I appreciate that, but will say that it wasn't an easy project. I would definitely recommend roping someone in who is good at DIY stuff and/or carpentry, else you will be suffering over it. Still, worth the time and occasional frustration now that it's been sitting in my kitchen for a few months!
Like others said, this is a bit fussy to assemble especially attaching the top. Some cursing did occur at this point. As a whole the piece is well made and the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the finish. It says it has an oil finish but it doesn't seem to be well applied. The color variations in the wood are not to my liking and I'd like to apply a white gel stain for a pickled look. Now I need to find the right product.
This product is very nice. Its delivered in two parts and both are very heavy. It took me approximately 6 hours by myself to put together.It would be much easier with 2 people putting it together. Half the time. Other than that it is a great piece. Love it.
It is a very attractive and goes well with my kitchen. This has given me the additional work space and extra cabinet space. I really like the spice rack which I keep all my everyday spices in for quick access. It took my husband and I two days to put together and for the most part the instructions were fairly easy to follow. We did also use the "video helps" a few times. The screws did ream out when trying to put in the magnet plates and had to get some different screws for them, but otherwise all else fit nicely together. I would recommend this product.
My husband and I were able to put this together over 2 evenings after work and are extremely pleased w/the results. My only recommendation would be that you purchase the oil to condition the butcher block with the product as we assumed a sample would come with the cabinet. Otherwise, it's an extremely beautiful addition to our kitchen!
I replaced an old drawer chest in my kitchen with this piece. The piece is really very nicely made and has a transitional look about it so it fits in w/ lots of different decors. I'm loving the additional storage space and an easy open drawer. It met my every expectation !
