Sturdy, good craftsmanship
 from Pasadena, CA,  Feb 2, 2008

I was a little wary since this was our first purchase from Overstock and didn't know what the "catch" was, but I am very happy with this purchase. It is completely assemble-yourself, and it took us about 2 hours to put together. Instructions are easy to follow, and if you've done much assembly-required furniture, you'll be impressed that the pieces really fit together well. It looks just like the picture, and is very sturdy. Drawers roll easily and the pulls are attractive. The only negative (or maybe just surprise) is that the wood is not treated as much as I'd have expected. Perhaps that's because it's for butcher block use. It's well sanded and hasn't stained, but it's just slightly rougher than I'd expect - about like a cutting board, all over, even on the sides and drawers. Also, the screws for the drawer pulls weren't long enough for the bottom two drawers, but a quick trip to the local (tiny) hardware store and we were all set.

Very Nice Workcenter
 from Santa Fe, NM,  Dec 8, 2011

Some reviews indicate this product is not engineered well for assembly; this is simply not the case. If you are a beginner with this sort of project you may need some assistance but I found this to be a relatively straight forward project (albeit time consuming). Because of the quality there are a lot of steps but the alternative to create a smaller project is less quality. Do your self a favor a read the instructions thoroughly before starting. I know in this country we expect everything to happen in a few seconds but don't skimp on time to invest in assembly. Once complete I found the work-center to be exactly what we needed for the space and quite sturdy. My only complaint is the hardware for the drawer handles. As mentioned in previous reviews, they cut some corners here. However, $$$ and a trip to the hardware store solved the problem easily. Don't be swayed by reviewers with no mechanical sense or patience; this is a very good product.

Great product
 from Glasgow, Kentucky,  Mar 3, 2011

This was really hard to put together but worth the effort...It is a beautiful cabinet and really gives the kitchen a new look with lots of storage space. The butcher block top is outstanding for a work station and it looks really more expensive than what you pay for it. Overstock has done it again with affordability and since it weighs probably 200 lb. , the shipping was free, a great bargain.

As advertised
 from Baltimore, MD,  Apr 11, 2013

Be prepared to spend an afternoon assembling this piece. One person can do so (I did it alone), but definitely would be easier with two). There was a lot of assembly involved, but it's a great addition to my kitchen. I swore no more "put together" furniture, but this is way beyond the other self-assembly items. All pieces except drawer bottoms and sides are solid wood and there's a nice slab of butcher block for the top. My only complaint - the bag containing all of the assembly pieces was damaged in shipping and all the pieces were loose in the box. Several were missing. I received no response at all from the manufacturer when I contacted them about the missing pieces. Does not speak well for their customer service.

Excellent piece of furniture
 from Bristol, CT,  Dec 14, 2012

We love this island. It's very sturdy and well made. My only small grievance is that the open shelf above the drawers is made with a rather thin piece of wood with absolutely no support underneath. You cannot put anything heavy on it or the wood will bow. I tried to store my cast iron skillet and other pans there, and you could see the wood was dipping down from the weight. It's a shame because every single other element of this island is tough and remarkably well made. Still worth every penny. I love the locking rolling castors too, and I roll the table to the side and keep it there until I cook, then roll it to the middle of the kitchen and lock the castors easily with my foot. The drawers are very spacious and slide in and out beautifully.

I needed help putting it together because you really need 4 or 5 arms. But we 2 sisters did a fine job of it. You must read the instructions and do exactly what they tell you to do, and in the proper order. We had a few oops moments, had to go back and redo a few connections, but we got a perfect fit on everything. I had plenty of extra screws, connectors, pins, etc. Once we got the hang of the connectors and the pins, it was a right speedy job. Took us about 2-1/2 hours to put together everything - except the 3 drawers which I did by myself the next day. Took about half an hour for all three drawers. The drawer glides went in perfectly, no trouble with balance or fit. What a wonderfully functional piece of kitchen furniture. Heavy, solid, impressive looking. I look forward to rolling out pie dough and cutting out cookies, chopping veggies, everything you need a large counter by the kitchen window to do. So happy! Get this one!

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? spot on.

Not worth the money
 from al,  Aug 16, 2010

Hardware for this item was cheap and stripped out easily. Screw heads were too small for the drawer hanger brackets. Instructions were very vague in areas. Took hours to put together due to all the different pieces of wood and having to figure out what piece was for what, since all pieces were unmarked. Item is much better looking in the picture than in person. Not worth the money we paid for this. Thought for the price we paid quality would be better. If you have a lot of experience putting things together, this is for you. This is not meant for a beginner.
