Assembled fairly easily. One piece, the drawer front, was missing some hardware screw inserts. I emailed them and they sent me, free of charge, a new drawer front. The part arrived a couple days later. Top notch. All and all, very satisfied. The butcher block top is raw. You will need to apply butcher block/mineral oil to it to bring out the beautiful colors.
This work station, after considerable assembly (although not difficult), turned out as described in the ad and arrived with all parts required. Once assembled it is a sturdy and attractive work station with a high quality appearance. It was the perfect size for our small kitchen and has proven to be a helpful addition.
Very easy to assemble. Stylish. After working in a commercial kitchen for years, I wanted a heavy duty work station. This one fit my needs. I am a firm believer in "you get what you pay for". Here you get nothing but quality and style here. Nice that it is counter top height, rolls anywhere and can extend counter space or be used as separate work space. One of the pc's for the drawer was cracked during the manufacturing process. I e-mailed the manufacturer and was shipped a new piece the same day. Great customer service and prompt with taking care of the broken piece.
What a pleasant surprise. I think the quality may have improved in the last year, because this is a great and wonderfully functional cart, and some of the reviews pre-2014 were not that complementary. I wasn't going for looks, although it looks very nice. I wanted a work station, and I got it. It's big enough for prep. I'm very happy with it!
This is a very nice kitchen cart at an excellent price. I needed additional prep space, this mobile unit fit the bill perfectly and looks great to boot! The surface prep space is large and the cart is very sturdy. The only con is that the directions are pictures only. It took my handy BF some time to figure out them out but once done, well worth the effort!
The height of this station is perfect for me, since I'm short. It is too heavy for one person(female) to put together by herself, but it went together fairly fast. The only reason I was very disappointed with this item, was the butcher block top. The underneath side is beautiful; the blocks are without blemish. The top, however has several blemishes in it and it's the one with the groove and no holes for the legs - they are on the underneath side, so you cannot just turn it over. I didn't return it just because it's way too heavy and I didn't want to bother with putting it back in the box and trying to get it to a UPS station. This is definitely a "seconds" item.
It was fairly simple to put together. Even though I put it together myself (5'4" female), if you know someone who can help you, by all means employ them--some of the pieces are heavy, which is why this is a good piece of furniture. It is solid, the wheels are rubber and the block is attractive. I will oil it and use cutting boards instead of chopping directly on the wood to preserve it because I want to eat on it too (I bought some 24" stools). Great product, I love it.

This is a decent product. It was easy to assemble. It came with a few knicks in the wood, but they're pretty small. The work station fits perfectly in my kitchen and having the wheels that lock is a great feature.
