We had two wrong pieces and the company was very quick in supplying us with new parts. When we went to assemble, I realized that we now had three of the same side, so we received the wrong piece again. It may have been ordered wrong, since none of the pieces are marked and it took forever and many times double checking to figure out what was right and what was left. My husband was a contractor and it still took several hours to assemble. We had to make do with the wrong piece, no biggie. But the instructions are mostly a series of hand drawn pictures and you are on your own to figure out what's front back or side. The piece is nice looking and fits nicely into the space we ordered it for. Holds a lot and seems kind of sturdy. But the wood came in various shades and apparently unfinished. I expected the top to be unfinished, but the rest of the cart is going to get filthy next to the stove unless I finish it. The front drawer is duel colored, top half light pine, and bottom half is a dark brown. But the bottom will get painted. I don't recommend it because of the million pieces and the difficulty putting it together.
Have been shopping for vegetable table and found this one on line it was perfect, the wood is attractive wasn't too difficult to assemble, and the dimensions made for a great fit in my kitchen. Love the drawer it is a good size.
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.
Before I ordered, i asked if this cart required assembly. The reviews were mixed and the description stated "assembled". My question was answered and it was stated that it was assembled. You cannot imagine my surprise, when I opened the box and saw that it was completely not assembled!!! As both my husband and I are not good at assembling, we had to pay someone to assemble. He even could not believe all the parts.
To make things even worse, there were parts missing. I called the number for Catskill and they sent the missing parts with no hesitation. They also stated that none of there products come assemble. I called Overstock.com and made them aware of this and have since noticed that the description has changed to assembly required. The cart is nice, but not worth the money spent to assemble.
I agree with other buyers that this is a great cart ... once put together. The assembly directions leave a lot to be desired but if you go to the CATSKILL website they have several videos on how to build their products (unfortunately, the video link to this particular item was not working). It took me HOURS to finally get everything finished. The packing box arrived somewhat damaged, however all pieces inside arrived safely without any missing parts. Although the wooden pieces are treated before leaving the factory be prepared to spend some time to do additional "treating" of the wood to give it the deep finish shown in the picture. This can be easily done with multiple applications of MINERAL OIL bought at your local drug store (much cheaper than going to the big box stores) .... Overall, I am very happy with my purchase ... the drawer holds all of my kitchen knives and slides smoothly ... the drop down leaf is a great feature for smaller kitchen areas, and the baskets are quite large and not flimsy (great for storing those extra items such as potatoes, onions, or even kitchen utensils). Thanks again Overstock.com for offering this item at a much lower $$ than your competors :-)

Hi, what is the length with the leaf up? Description states 22 inches and 20 inches with the leaf down. That means the leaf is only 2 inches which doesn't look right. Thksthegrove on Jan 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
