This cart is so pretty could be an island also. The wood is very solid. The drawer is deep, with potential to hold quite a bit. The picture and the description were very accurate. As other reviewers have indicated, the top could be better with a little sanding but I haven't done that yet, and it's fine. It took me 4 hours to assemble it by myself. Directions were not easy to follow so the first 30 mins was simply trying to figure out the how-to. The cart is heavy, and while I (a female) managed to handle the assembly alone, I recommend to my girlfriends to get some help so that you don't damage your floors as you lift the top or the assembled pieces. Overall, I love this cart and recommend it as a good buy.

The cart was exactly what we were looking for and fit perfectly in the space. It has a large drawer for storage (we wanted to use it as a tea and coffee server). The wood grain is so beautiful and blends in with any wood grain already in our kitchen (med oak). The butcher block top is awesome although we found that it was a little rough in the beginning until we started to oil it on a regular basis. The bottom is great for a large storage basket or with company for a tin of ice. The only minus is that it literally takes a few hours to assemble. We love ours! I would give it a five star review except the difficulty assembling the cart.

This is more than a kitchen cart! It has a very generous drawer which comes in handy when you don't have a lot of storage space in the kitchen. The cart is large enough to be useful but not in the way. There's lots of space on top as well as on the bottom shelf. I love the towel bars as well. Putting it together was easy and to make it look less like a rolling cart, I left the rollers off. The craftsmanship and beautiful wood make this cart a purchase that is well worth the cost. I recommend this product if you want a great looking addition to your kitchen that will last!
I ordered this piece after another from Overstock turned out to be the wrong size. This is a very nice piece. It was simple to put together and all the pieces arrived in perfect shape. I did lightly sand the top as it needed just one more pass with fine/medium grit sandpaper to make it smooth as silk. I also re-oiled the top. I did not find the drawer bottom to be flimsy as did another reviewer. I'm using it for items that were crowding my countertop, blender, toaster, cookbooks and other utensils. It glides beautifully. If a person felt the drawer bottom would not hold if filled with heavier items it could easily be replaced with a piece of MDF. However, I would load it up without fear of damage. I checked the price of this same item at many other sites and Overstock's price was substantially lower.
Funny thing about this drop leaf....it doesn't have one! It took over 3 hours to put together (but I'm not mechanically inclined). The two inch maple top is beautiful. The open bottom shelf was damaged and will hopefully be replaced. I really wanted an eating space tho so I was very disappointed. The bottom of the drawer is very flimsy and will not hold up to any weight. Overall not a good buy for the money.
This kitchen cart is so much more then we expected....Very well made...The butcher block wood grain is soooo beautiful....The drawer is huge and can hold a ton of things...and the quality is awesome....Instructions were so easy to follow. We just cannot say enough about it...I would recommend this butcher block cart to everybody....Well worth the price...JUST LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really like this kitchen cart AND it was a real pain for one person (me) to assemble. It seems like it took me forever to get the thing put together! The bottom shelf was broken when it arrived. I called the company and they promptly sent a replacement. The wood is "au naturale" and lovely. I sanded it a bit and used ample Danish Oil to finish the piece. The wood matches my cabinets and it looks great in the kitchen. I use the deep drawer for plastic wrap, baggies, foil, etc. and to store my dish towels & pot holders. This is a very sturdy kitchen cart and gives me the additional prep space and storage I was looking for.
Other than paying over $100 more than todays price, which I find annoying, this cart is very nice. My husband found no problem with the directions and had it "up and running" in a couple of hours. It is good quality wood and the drawer is huge. I wish I had bought it earlier as it gives us a lot more counter space.
