I really like the island. It's perfect for a small space. It's not super hard to build but does require patience. I missed the step of putting the bars that allow the leaf to work on somehow! It is in the directions at the end but it's not super clear so pay attention there.
There is no finish on the top and it stains easily so another note to be careful. However, it's beautiful and I am very happy with it.

The island was not difficult to assemble. We thought the wood color on the front piece of the drawer was a lighter than the rest of the island, so we called the company and they sent another, darker piece immediately, which matched the rest of the island perfectly. The wood is beautiful and the quality is great. We now need to put the Butcher's Oil on the island; I know it will be even more attractive with that on it.
Very nice quality, it looks substantial and blends nicely with my darker cabinets. Keeps several appliances out of sight and still has plenty of space. The drawer is the weakest link, it sometimes catches midway (a safety feature). I especially like the spice rack on the side. Allow yourself extra time to construct it, and you will need another set of hands to install the doors.
It took me about 2.5 hours to put together alone (I am 5' 3", 105 lbs woman). Assembly is ok but not super straight forward like assembling frame less Euro cabinets (Instruction is good). 2 person will be better for assembling doors. After completed, the cart seems pretty strong. Caster rolls nice. Drawer rolls fine and I am happy with how the drawer rolls in/out (they are standard epoxy coated drawer roller slides). The veneer wood on particle board seems thick enough (not melamine top finish that you see on particle board). Looks like either thicker or comparable to the wood veneer top on cabinet grade plywood). The assembly uses lots of dowels and fair amount of screws. But after putting together the whole unit, it holds up pretty strong.
What I like:
The doors are very solid doors
Butcher block is heavy, nice, solid looking and really good
I love the flip top butcher block and hinges the hold the flip top
Love the spice rack
What I don't like
Back, side panel, drawer bottom and drawer back are particle boards (It was already stated in the Q&A section that back and side are particle boards. So I know what I was getting. Cabinet grade plywood will put the cost higher. So you can't blame it.)
I was disappointed with the particle board drawer bottom. I plan to change out with plywood from local home depot or lowe's later.
The connection to the drawer front to the drawer side assembly is very shaky every time I pull the drawer out because I could not tighten the special screw provided no matter how I adjusted it. May be it is me and not the screw. I will add L-bracket to secure the front to the side. Nothing structural but just that shaky front every time I pull the drawer.
The door assembly with dowels. You can only put the bottom brace in after sliding in all the doors. If you need to take out the door for certain reason (repair for dent or whatever), you need to remove the bottom brace. I guess putting the hinges on side rails might weaken the structure of the cart in the long run since the side rails carry the majority of the weight. Dowels go into the top and bottom rails. These rails are thicker and hold the cabinet to make it square(it seems) rather than carrying all the weight). But doors open and closes fine. Feels sturdy.
For the price paid, this piece is not worth your money or your sweat. Aside from the fact I paid over *** to put together my own piece of furniture, it is not *** quality. The drawer is the worst part. First off- it's super cheap siding. Secondly, it does not slide properly and is incredibly frustrating to use...so I don't. The rest of it just feels chintzy. The towel rack came to me broken, but I wouldnt bother putting it on anyway because it's cheap and too small. The fact that the wood does not have a finish is just dumb. It's rough and will probably stain soon.
I cannot believe I paid so much for this cart. It's definitely not worth it.
I received the Island a week ahead of schedule. The packaging was dinged up, but the island was in perfect condition, packaged well. There is a lot of color variances in the wood, but I think it looks great. The variance in color gives it character. Doors open and close well, and do not "hit" or "rub" and drawer slides smoothly. As others have mentioned the bottom of the drawer is pretty light weight, but I'm putting plastic utensils in it, not lead bricks :) It did take my husband and I about 3 hours to put together, and we are fairly adept at handy-work, but it was worth it. All pieces were there, no stripped screws, bent brackets, etc. One package of screws was not labeled the same as shown in the book, but using common sense it was not a problem. Over all the product was as described, well made, fit together nicely, and instructions were fairly easy to follow.
I intend this to be used in a work room, not a kitchen, and I was very pleased with the size and style. It is veneer over pressed wood, but for the cost it is very nice. I would expect to pay more than double for solid wood construction. The back panel was damaged when it arrived, but Overstock was wonderful in helping with the resolution. I love the drop leaf, which gives me the extra work area when needed, but is out of the way when not. I would certainly recommend this item.
Thank you for contacting us kkw80.
Top, legs, braces, drawer and doors are all made from northeastern hardwood.
Side and back panels are made from warp-resistant, hardwood veneer which allows for more precise machining and eases the assembly process.

The name says flat panel door, but the photo has shaker doors. 1) Is it just the wrong picture and I can count on these being flat panel doors? 2)Are the flat panel doors in other items from this brand really flat panel door products? (I'm afraid that two photos were swapped and I will end up with the wrong product.)jennifergiles on Oct 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello jennifergiles, This kitchen island has received excellent reviews! I apologize for the confusion; the images are correct. This does have flat panels doors, which means just the panel is flat, not the entire door. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 10, 2013
Does this come in a painted finish? Or is it able to be painted over the oil finish?bowach on Jul 5, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This particular item does not come in a painted finish, you may want to search for "Movable island" which will bring up some options that you can choose from. If you decide to paint, make sure that the paint you use is compatible with the oil that is in the wood.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 12, 2013
