This cart is solid wood, and well engineered. It is very sturdy and will stand up to daily use for many years. We actually bought two of these and screwed them together back to back to create a small kitchen island with drawers and cabinets on both the kitchen side and the dining room side. We jointed the tops and glued them together for a seamless look. It is perfect for our needs. It has real metal drawer glides. The shelves are grooved on the underside so that they sit firmly on the shelf pins and won't slide around. With two of us, it took about 2 1/2 hours to build the first one and 1 1 /2 to build the second. The drawer fronts did need a little adjusting. I would definitely not recommend trying to build this alone. It would be very difficult to do without one to hold and one to place the screws. Overall, we are extremely happy with our purchase.
I received the kitchen cart, Cottage Oak Finish with Wood Top Create-a-Cart, and was quite put off from the odor, which took 2 days to clear out of my house with the windows open. I also was very shocked how dark the wood is, I have all oak in my kitchen and this is more on the line of a cherry color. I also am very disappointed with the fact that once the top was put on the drawers will no longer close without being forced because thtey are hitting the wood top and because the drawer slides were predrilled, in order to fix it I will have to take the drawer apare and redrill the holes, which will possibly cause the holes to be too large for the screws, but it will need to be fixed in order to shut the drawers completely. Also, one of the metal handles is not drilled deep enough, so the screw will not screw in all the way, and when you open the drawer that side of the handle keeps popping off the screw.
I would love to review this item but as yet it has not been delivered. When I ordered this cabinet, the wrong delivery address appeared. I called immediately, not 5 minutes later, to have this corrected. The woman on the telephone said she would contact the supplier and try to change the address. Several days later, I received as e-mail that the cabinet had been delivered to the false address but that a recall had been issued and a tracking number was sent to me. In the meantime, my credit card had been charged, but nothing delivered. Upon further inquiry, someone stopped the pick-up and no one seems to know where the cabinet is. I would still like to have this article delivered to the proper address and not be charged twice. Please see if you can help.

This is a great piece. It came in two boxes - one for the top and one for the base. It was easy to put together and only took about two hours total, in part because I make sure to glue the holes where the dowels fit in to ensure there is no wiggle. They only flaw I found was that the base piece had all the dowels already installed and some broke due to shifting of heavy parts. I had to drill them out and replace them but that was easy and after that it all went together without a hitch. It really is a sturdy piece and very nice to look at.

The cart is made of solid wood and was relatively easy to assemble. The quality of construction is excellent. The predrilled holes are aligned well. One of the doors had a finishing flaw which I noticed after assembling the cart. I contacted the Manufacturer and they are sending me a replacement door. I'd recommend purchasing this cart to anyone who is looking for some extra counter and storage space. It's a great addition to ones kitchen.
