This butcher block work center makes our kitchen a kitchen! We have a tiny kitchen and this is exactly what was needed to provide space for storage and space for food prep. Everyone loves it and wants to know where we purchased it. Even though the assembly went on for a while, my husband claims it was easier than many IKEA products I've made him put together!Read More
Less-than-accurate claims and disappointing craftsmanship regarding the Butcher Block Workcenter, Model 54238 are as follows: A. Catskill Craftsmen's website states that "all drawer parts are solid wood". Not true. The back side of the drawer is made of veneered particle board. B. Worse yet, the back and sides of the cabinet are ALSO veneered particle board. The manufacturer's website describes the back and sides as " Warp-resistant, hardwood veneer". Although their wording is truthful, they avoid stating the fact that the sides and back are actually 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch particle board with a 1/16-inch-thick layer of hardwood ("veneer") glued onto both sides. Because the sides and back of this workstation are approximately 90% particle board, you should NEVER remove the wheels from this workstation while it is being used in your kitchen. If this workstation is sat directly on your kitchen floor, and it happens to come in contact with any liquid, the sides and back will soak up that liquid like a sponge. Particle board should never be exposed to moisture of any kind. C. The spice rack was impossible to assemble because one of the spice rack shelves was 1/4-inch longer, and 3/8-inch wider than the other. The list of tools the manufacturer states you will need to assemble your workstation, is not correct since you will need a table saw, drill and drill bit in order to re-cut and assemble the spice rack properly. D. The nickel-finish door/drawer pulls are a very nice touch, however, the chrome-plated towel rack bar/rod, and chrome spice rack rods are not a good match with nickel hardware. Matching finishes would have been much classier. E. The inner profile of the cupboard-door rails and stiles was cut with a dull router bit creating unsightly edges and rough surfaces. It would appear that finish sanding with a 220-grit sandpaper is left to the customer. Note: A lack of sanding by the manufacturer, made applying oil to the doors difficult. The applicator cloth was damaged due to rough edges and poorly-sanded surfaces, causing the cloth to snag and leave behind a trail of lint. Plan on purchasing sandpaper. F. One cupboard door arrived broken. The shipping containers were very well packed and showed no signs of damage due to shipping, so it is unknown whether the damage was shipper related, or if, perhaps, the door was broken prior to shipping. Said door contained two 4-inch vertical cracks, one starting at the top of the right stile, the other starting at the bottom of the right stile. Using the Kreg Joinery System, and some wood glue, the cracks were eventually mended. G. Although the center panels of cupboard doors are often made of wood joined side to side, I've never seen joined wood used on the rails and stiles. Substandard craftsmanship in my opinion. H. The 1/4-inch ply material used for the bottom of the drawer, fit very loosely into the 3/8-inch slot routed into the four drawer sides. Shims and glue applied underneath the drawer created a much more sound and solid drawer. I. "Butcher block?" Although the manufacturer's website calls the top of their workstation "butcher block", I've never seen a butcher block countertop made from random width hardwood. Yes, bread boards/cutting boards - the kind that pull out of a kitchen floor cabinet will often contain random widths of joined wood, but random-width butcher block? Google butcher block, click on "images" and see what kind of butcher block photos appear. Buyers be prepared - the butcher block top on your workstation is made with wood ranging from 1/2-inch to 5 3/4 inches wide. J. The two positives I can share regarding this product are the following: 1. When I called and told the manufacturer I had received a broken door, they responded in a very kind and professional manner, and a new door was shipped out immediately. 2. Once the workstation is assembled and oiled, it looks gorgeous. The imperfections, the particle board, the modifications, repairs, and assembly-hassles are almost forgotten. Almost... K.

This island is excellent quality. Took 2 people to put together but it was worth it. Delivery was fast. Wood is sturdy and thick, not cheap. Saw the same product at 2 nationally known big box home centers for $200 more, not including shipping!Read More
I managed to put most of this together by myself, with the help of a friend at the end to hold up the heavier pieces while I screwed them together. All in all its good overall quality-please note that not all pieces are hard wood. Some are particle board or layers of wood pressed together. All the pieces that you see are in fact hard wood though. Also, make sure that you start oiling the butcher block top immediately-my daughter left a cup of water on it for a few minutes and the wood retained the ring. Oil helped though. It looks great in my kitchen and rolls nicely-feels like it is holding well.Read More
got pretty much what we thought. Had 2 defective pieces which were replaced hassle free at zero charge and got them within 2 days.Read More

How to Hang a Valance and Curtains
Hanging a valance and curtains over your window will add dimension, texture and style to any room. Window curtains with a valance give your window treatments a finished, designer look.

If you are more interested in decoration and only need to block minimal light, then a valance over sheer curtains is a good choice. It's important to measure the window and decide what type of curtains you want before you buy the curtain hardware. A cafe rod will be sufficient to support a sheer curtain, but you will need a stronger curtain rod to support heavier fabrics such as blackout panels. Also, the larger the window, the sturdier the curtain rod will need to be.

How to Season Stainless Steel Pans
While most cooks know that you need to season your food before it will taste good, new cooks might not know that you can also season your pots and pans. Seasoning is a process in which you prepare a pan or other cookware before you use it for the first time.

In addition, seasoning helps to prevent food from sticking to the pan. The following steps will teach you how to season and protect your stainless steel pots and pans so they will last longer and work better.

A good pair of ski goggles will protect your eyes in many ways. Ski goggles block ultraviolet light, which can be stronger at high elevations than at near sea level.

And if you enjoy tree skiing, goggles are going to help protect your face and eyes from small branches.
