This is a solid piece of furniture and I am very pleased with it overall. It was well packaged and although it took a little longer to arrive than I expected, it was worth the wait. The color matched my cherry kitchen perfectly. It is as described and fit beautifully in our kitchen.

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!!!

Loving this product! Fits beautifully in my new kitchen and is the perfect addition since we are limited in counter space! The white is bright and clean, and the butcher block top is of great quality. My father helped me put it together with no problem. A wonderful purchase from Overstock--you won't be disappointed!

We were looking for a kitchen cart to nestle in a pantry window alcove and this fit the bill. It is incredibly well made and even my husband agrees and he's not a fan of "build your own furniture". It was easy to put together, has a great butcher block top, and is all wood. I looked around at other places selling the same cart and O was nearly $100 dollars less than most. It would be worth buying at a $100 increase, but why should you. It really is cherry (not red), and that is perfect because we have a larger cherry island and it goes perfectly. We are so very pleased with the purchase.

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.

We have a great room-style open kitchen, that had a blank wall space, in which this John Boos gathering block table, filled perfectly! We did lots of research before ordering, which included measuring the space multiple times and comparing the dimensions as described. Careful, though, this unit weighs as much as a motorcycle! Living in a rural area, we had to meet the semi in town. It comes on a pallet packed into a heavy weight carton, and loaded easily in the back of our pick-up using a forklift. Getting it into the house was challenging. After sizing up the situation, we decided it would be better to unpack the contents of the carton from the back of our truck, and then using the whole length of the carton to slide the butcher block top out onto the ground and into the house (ramps on your pick up with make the job do-able--otherwise, you'll need at least 2 very strong men, or maybe more!). From there it took only 55 minutes to assemble. It is beautifully made, and we could not be any happier with our purchase. The vendor, Country Butler, was attentive and informative on how the unit was progressing. John Boos, according to the vendor, is working night and day shifts to keep up with demand, but still it took about 5 weeks from the time we ordered to the time it was delivered. Because the vendor let us know the status via email, we were patient, as each unit is made to order. If you have steps into your house, this is probably better left to movers to get into your house. The table is as massive as it looks!! This was a find for us!!

Nice kitchen cart, the butcher blocks are short pieces fingered together. One block area was a little dark, but couldn't complain for the money. Once together is it quite sturdy. The end pieces spice and towel rack take up 12" together, so the actual butcher block top is 43". You could leave them off and buy small plugs for the holes if you wanted. Perfect addition to add counter space in your kitchen.

Easy to assemble...looks great with my remodeled kitchen. Looks more expensive than what it cost. Once again Overstock offers a great product at a great price within a week of purchase.

The product fits perfectly in the space I have. The advertised dimensions were a Exactly as stated in the product description. We had it shipped to Australia a nd it arrived in a very timely manner. It was opened for customs reasons, the shelf pins went missing. Hubby made some from some screws, so saved the day! Wished it had come with butcher block oil, it really needed to be oiled.

This cart took a long time and challenging to assemble, but our in house mechanical engineer was able to do so in about 4 hours. It works well for additional counter space in a small apartment. We don't move the cart around alot and I would be concerned if I needed to regularly move it around. It doesn't seem that sturdy. But as a side cart to add space, it works well.

I've been looking for an island for my small kitchen for a few years. I bought one from West Elm but it overpowered the room and I sent it back. This small country french butcher block island fits perfectly and goes well with my kitchen. I just love it and am glad I took a chance and ordered it online. I could not have found anything I like better!

Up front, anyone ordering this island needs to know that assembly will be very time consuming and involve a lot of parts. It arrives in two flat, heavy boxes and took about three hours for one person (an engineer) to assemble with a second person staying one step ahead reading instructions and organizing components. You will need to supply your own hammer and screw drivers. The directions are ok - some sections were not clear and took longer than necessary to figure out. But if you take your time and carefully read through everything first, you should be ok. Once the unit is assembled, it looks very nice - solid wood with a substantial butcher block top. So why only four stars? Despite being happy with the piece, the effort to put it together definitely weighs into this review. Also, I would have liked for the back of the unit to have the same smooth finish as the front and sides. Instead, it is more unfinished with a slightly rougher feel. Since I am using this as a breakfast bar in the center of my kitchen, the back is visible. If you will be placing this against a wall, then it won't matter. Most people will never even notice the difference but just know what to expect if you plan to keep the breakfast bar extended. If the features suit your needs and you are up for the challenge of assembling this, then you will be happy with the end result.

I LOVE MY CART! IT SHIPPED QUICKLY AND I HAD NO ISSUES WITH DAMAGING OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. IT DID TAKE ME QUITE LONG TO PUT TOGETHER BECAUSE THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE DIFFICULT TO READ. THERE ARE ONLY WORDS AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE PIECES ARE FACING THE RIGHT WAY WHICH I FOUND A LITTLE TROUBLE WITH. THE CART IS HEAVY AND STURDY. THE BUTCHER BLOCK ON TOP IS SOLID AND MAKES IT LOOK MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE THAN WHAT IT REALLY IS. DEFINITELY A GREAT PRODUCT!

I shopped in my area but did not find a cart in the dimensions and style that I wanted for my kitchen. So I looked online. This one was perfect for my needs. It came quickly. Be aware that the box is HEAVY. UPS left it on my front doorstep and it took all my strength to bring it inside just a few feet. I am a single woman and I needed the help of a friend to assemble it. It's so much easier with two people/4 hands. The instructions could have been a little more detailed in my opinion, but with the help of my friend we worked out the puzzle. It is well worth the time to go to the Catskill Craftsman website and watch the videos on how to assemble - otherwise I would not have had a clue. The quality of the material is very good and once it is put together this cart is very sturdy. I am impressed with this made in USA product! One part had a problem with the holes not being drilled in the correct places, so I called the company and they shipped the replacement part immediately. I love my new butcher block cart!!

This cart has exceeded our expectatations. The color quality and the sturdiness is impressive. The butcher block is very thick. I've priced out butcher blocks thinner than this one for more than the cost of this entire cart. The shelves are heavy and durable and let's not ignore the fact that it's simply beautiful. I ordered a 2nd one the day I received the 1st one.

this is a very nice island, well made & beautiful. It does require time to put it all together. I love it.

This island is such a gem. After looking for months for a functional but classy butcher block island in my price range (>$300)...i decided to go with the stainless steel top instead of cheap look-alike butcher tops. I am so pleased, it ties in so well with other stainless products in my kitchen and works well with the wainscoating I have. the top will be a breeze to clean (as opposed to wood tops). As for assembly, it was a moderate challenge for 1 person (who had a 1 year old following my every move). Was able to finish in about 2 hours...but all pieces were in good shape and the directions were more than clear. I give this island an A!

This will be used as a liquor storage and mixing bar under upper wall cabinets in our kitchen. The wood is solid and pretty. Though it says it is oiled, I am putting a coat of Tung Oil on everything but the top, for further protection of the wood. I might put some kind of "edible" on the top, as I intend to cut garnishes on it as well as mix drinks that might leave a stain on it. Easy to assemble and sturdy. The adjustable shelf and drawer will come in handy; moves about easily when casters are unlocked. Overall, a good price, compared to over websites, for a quality piece of furniture.
