I love the dimensions of this kitchen cart. And a good value for what you might compare it with. It did take two tries. The first one had a split in the the butcher block top that went all the way through. I contacted Overstock about the return process and I had a perfect replacement within a few days. Assembly was relatively easy. I would recommend this piece for price and style and functionality.

While it's a bit pricey, this is a quality product and well worth it. Assembly was a bit intensive, but apart from some struggles lining up the butcher's block with the base cabinets everything went together well. The door/drawer handles are pretty cheap, but standard size so we swapped them out to match the rest of our kitchen. Upkeep is minimal. We oil and lightly sand the block once every few months. That seems to keep it looking good and stain resistant. Would definitely recommend.

OMG, this cart is so cute. I purchased it as a replacement for an 18" base cabinet that was right next to the stove. This cart makes the small kitchen seem bigger and makes the space more useable. The assembly is a breeze. I put the basket on the botton and the flat shelf in the middle. The butcher block is heavy and fits just right on the top of the cart. I'd shopped around Portland and couldn't find anything even close the price of this cart. Thanks Overstock for another great product and another great deal!!!

This cart is better than pictured. The quality is great. The butcher block top is solid and as thick as it looks. Easy to put together-would highly recommend.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture --- and it is significantly less expensive than I would expect to see for anything comparable. It's solid wood, good-sized, and well-designed! I expect to have it for many years, if not decades. I'd guess they can offer this beautiful furniture since the customer will be putting it together. I appreciate that, but will say that it wasn't an easy project. I would definitely recommend roping someone in who is good at DIY stuff and/or carpentry, else you will be suffering over it. Still, worth the time and occasional frustration now that it's been sitting in my kitchen for a few months!

The assembly was straight forward. The butcher block top had two small gouges in it. At first I considered sending it back, but after it was together, the damaged areas did not show. The screws for fastening the top are too long, they would have poked through. I had shorter screws on hand. Overall the kitchen island looks pretty good and was reasonably priced.

I am using this Butcher Block Bin as an island in my kitchen. It's working very well. After getting this, I realized it could have been a little bigger. I really like the trash bin option. Over all I am very satisfied with what I purchased. I have bought other items from overstock also. So far I am satisfied with the products I have purchased.

First of all, I took a risk on this cart, ordering it sight unseen, because it was WORLDS more attractive than other carts in its price point (and beyond). Most of them are just downright fugly! And I was incredibly pleased by the quality of the build. The finish isn't cheap. The "carving" in the wood is nice and crisp. It feels quite solid. It's clearly not high end custom wood furniture but it's still SUPER nice, especially for the price. (Example: the shelves LOOK like separate planks, but they are not; it's an illusion. But it's a nicely done illusion.) It was even packaged well and everything arrived undamaged. I could have paid much more and still been very happy with the quality. It looks very nice, holds its own very well, even next to my late-1800s heartpine china cabinet and with my modern Eames Compact Sofa in the same room. That's what really impresses me: in a room full of much more expensive furniture, it still looks great. It took some work to put together, but the instructions were actually very good, and it was less work than it could have been. My husband and I did it together and never had any of those perverse "They did WHAT??" moments. (I do recommend 2 people to put it together though. You need the leverage. And it's heavy.) They very thoughtfully labeled all the individual parts with letters and numbers so you didn't have to guess what was what. The screws and such were in separate bags, labeled by size/type. Really nice. The only thing that I would change is the stainless steel top. I don't really care for stainless to start with, and alas this is the cheaper kind of stainless that gets fingerprints when you so much as LOOK at it. But, this is a minor quibble. If we keep it after our kitchen remodel, we will get a wood top made for itů or maybe get one of those butcher block cutting boards that has a lip to cover a counter. A minor quibble. In short: Yay! The last piece of furniture I ordered from Overstock was a disaster, but this one has renewed my faith. Love it.

I managed to put most of this together by myself, with the help of a friend at the end to hold up the heavier pieces while I screwed them together. All in all its good overall quality-please note that not all pieces are hard wood. Some are particle board or layers of wood pressed together. All the pieces that you see are in fact hard wood though. Also, make sure that you start oiling the butcher block top immediately-my daughter left a cup of water on it for a few minutes and the wood retained the ring. Oil helped though. It looks great in my kitchen and rolls nicely-feels like it is holding well.

I was so surprised when I received this table! It's extremely high quality, very heavy and durable. Would definitely recommend this item!

This "island" is much better than I expected. Not that I didn't expect a very nice product based on what I was paying, however, it is a high quality piece of furniture for the price. I ordered via ebates.com and received a coupon through their website along with getting a 5% rebate for this order. Now for the goods... it arrived 4 business days after I ordered it. My husband and I put it together today in about 1 hour. If you read/follow the instructions and lay out all of the hardware prior to starting, it makes it a very painless exercise. Everything fits like a glove but if you are a novice at putting things like this together, just don't tighten everything down too tightly before you are finished. It helps with being able to maneuver connections when trying to bolt them together. The metal finish is not a shiny stainless steel... it is a brushed nickel which really goes with my stainless steel appliances much better. The butcher block top is beautifully done and matches my maple cabinets pretty closely. I cleaned the wood top with Murphy's Oil Soap and it looks great. The area where I placed the island is 7'9" x 9'6" from counter top to counter top and I have plenty of room to fully open the refrigerator door on one side to opening the dishwasher on the other side. If you have a long narrow kitchen, this piece might be a bit large and I would be sure before ordering. It is substantial in weight and packaged extremely well so to return it, it would be a nightmare after taking it out of the two boxes. Bottom line... I feel I got a really good deal on a really nice kitchen island --- I'm a very happy camper!!!

This island has everything I wanted...2 shelves, a large drawer, and great work top. It is a very nice butcher block and very finely made. Customer service is excellent also. It had a small crack in one of the legs and the company sent me another one that I received in 2 days. You can't go wrong if you are looking for a very sturdy, solidly made and handsome kitchen island.

This is just what we needed for a small kitchen that required more counter space. It has wheels and moves around with added storage all around. It did take one hour to build. If you follow instructions carefully, you can do it too. Comes in many pieces. Good luck.

My husband and I were able to put this together over 2 evenings after work and are extremely pleased w/the results. My only recommendation would be that you purchase the oil to condition the butcher block with the product as we assumed a sample would come with the cabinet. Otherwise, it's an extremely beautiful addition to our kitchen!

The butcher block top is darker than pictured, but it is beautiful and goes well with my cabinets. The metal parts are not stainless steel, but more like a brushed nickel. It is very sturdy and has ample storage space. This island is very easy to put together. I did it myself with just some lifting help from my husband. One of the rungs from the bottom shelf was slightly bent, but I was able to straighten this without difficulty. This is good value for the price. The fact that it is open without any doors or drawers is a plus for me. Nice to store cookbooks, often used kitchen utensils or wine.

From the quality of the craftsmanship to the attention to design detail, including a 'soft close" drawer mechanism, this is a butcher block that dreams are made of. Incredibly easy assembly and the perfect shade eggplant is the perfect color for my kitchen. The delivery was literally through the front door, no problem! An incredible experience.

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.

First, I have to admit I was shocked at the high prices of kitchen storage units in general. I shopped around quite a bit before finding this unit on Overstock, and although $$$ still seems high to me, it was by far the best price I found. I am very happy with this piece of furniture - it has clean lines, a nice solid butcher block top, and is just big enough to provide good storage and work space without taking up too much room. I put it together by myself and the directions were easy to follow. It took me about 2 hours.

Not fun to assemble but very sturdy and nice looking. This island has been a life saver in my kitchen. The butcher block on it is done wonderfully.

This is great in our kitchen -- we needed more counter space. It seems well-made and is very attractive. I use the top as a butcher block, to prepare foods, etc. It really frees up space in our not-so-well designed kitchen. I also keep all of my baby's bottle tops and spoons in the drawer. A great item for the price.

We searched hard to find just the right size butcher block and fell in love with this one. It was fairly easy to put together and very well made. Everything is great, besides the wire baskets. We had to go through 7 baskets to finally get 3 that were made correctly. But their customer service was amazing. Every monday morning for 2 weeks (it took 3 shipments to get the 3 well made baskets) I called Catskill, they took my adress and mailed them out, by Friday I had the new baskets! So if you get a Catskill product I would probably not do something with wire baskets, or atleast expect them not to get it right the first time. The butcher block is great and we have found it to work extremely well. My family has always had Boos blocks and it is a great alternative if you don't want to spend a fortune.
