The quality of the cabinet is surprisingly good. it is finished inside and out and is made of solid wood. All of the hardware was included and even had a couple of extra hex head screws and wood screws, which was very refreshing, as most of the time when you buy a put it together yourself item, parts are missing. Instructions are clear and if you follow them carefully you should have no problem assembling the cabinet. It took my wife and I about 1 1/2 hours to totally assemble. I was wishing they had included a straight Allen wrench so I could use it In my power screwdriver, about 3/4 of the way through assembly I find that they did include one and we hadn't noticed it in the package with the screws. I used Elmers wood glue in the dowel joints, because I feel it makes a stronger joint and I don't plan on disassembling it, it isn't required and most likely not needed, it's something I always do. I would recommend this cabinet to other people, great value for the price.
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.
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.
