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.

I needed this as a temporary furnishing and was able to purchase with an email coupon, so the price was right. However, it was difficult to put together even though I have assembled a lot of furniture in my day. The top is varnished, so you cannot actually use it as a butcher block or cut anything on it without destroying the finish. Also, the drawers are as deep as the unit is, but they pull out only about half way making them virtually useless when trying to quickly access utensils during cooking, etc. if you only need storage, this unit is ok. The drop leaf is sturdy when open, so it works as a small table very well. It just has a few design issues that if I had known in advance, I would have chosen a different product.

Absolutely love this kitchen cart. Quality is great for the price. Butcher block top is sturdy and substantial. Very easy to put together... took maybe 20 minutes. Love the finished product - it looks way more expensive than it actually was! Would highly recommend.

It took me about 2.5 hours to put together alone (I am 5' 3", 105 lbs woman). Assembly is ok but not super straight forward like assembling frame less Euro cabinets (Instruction is good). 2 person will be better for assembling doors. After completed, the cart seems pretty strong. Caster rolls nice. Drawer rolls fine and I am happy with how the drawer rolls in/out (they are standard epoxy coated drawer roller slides). The veneer wood on particle board seems thick enough (not melamine top finish that you see on particle board). Looks like either thicker or comparable to the wood veneer top on cabinet grade plywood). The assembly uses lots of dowels and fair amount of screws. But after putting together the whole unit, it holds up pretty strong. What I like: The doors are very solid doors Butcher block is heavy, nice, solid looking and really good I love the flip top butcher block and hinges the hold the flip top Love the spice rack What I don't like Back, side panel, drawer bottom and drawer back are particle boards (It was already stated in the Q&A section that back and side are particle boards. So I know what I was getting. Cabinet grade plywood will put the cost higher. So you can't blame it.) I was disappointed with the particle board drawer bottom. I plan to change out with plywood from local home depot or lowe's later. The connection to the drawer front to the drawer side assembly is very shaky every time I pull the drawer out because I could not tighten the special screw provided no matter how I adjusted it. May be it is me and not the screw. I will add L-bracket to secure the front to the side. Nothing structural but just that shaky front every time I pull the drawer. The door assembly with dowels. You can only put the bottom brace in after sliding in all the doors. If you need to take out the door for certain reason (repair for dent or whatever), you need to remove the bottom brace. I guess putting the hinges on side rails might weaken the structure of the cart in the long run since the side rails carry the majority of the weight. Dowels go into the top and bottom rails. These rails are thicker and hold the cabinet to make it square(it seems) rather than carrying all the weight). But doors open and closes fine. Feels sturdy.

My husband bought me a small commercial popcorn maker and I was having a difficut time finding a place for it in my kitchen. I bought a butcher block cabinet locally but was not happy with how it looked. This one is perfect. It looks nice, the specifications were right on and I am very happy. The shelves are solid with plenty of room to hold all of my popcorn dishes and supplies.

the table is sturdy and he heaviness and thinkness of the butcher block top is exactly what we were looking for. my two sons ages 22 AND 20 ASSEMBLED THE TABLE WITH LITTLE TROUBLE, WORKING TOGETHER. working together made it go smoothly and we are very happy with the result. the two boxes it came in were delivered super fast- faster than we anticipated in fact.

I ordered this table as an upgrade to my previous lightweight rolling cart for extra workspace and was very pleased with the quality and appearance of this table. Perfect size to be a small island and the solid maple blends very well with the rest of my light colored cabinets. It is a bit time consuming but not difficult to assemble with the use of small wrench and a strong husband to actually turn the table topside when done as it weighs about 150 lbs. Came with the Henckles Knife Set which looks nice but is a lighter weight and quality to a set I already have. Small packet of special oil to seal the butcher block was also included. Very pleased with purchase. Definitly requires someone Strong to assemble and move it into place because of the weight. Nice sized drawer for utensils or other small kitchen equipment. It is stationary, not a movable cart. Delivery was on time. Love it!

This item met and exceeded my expectations. Heavy gauge chromed steel, thick, heavy bamboo butcher block top which lifts off for easy cleaning. Smooth, free wheeling casters. Perfect counter height. The handle and hooks are optional, meaning you do not have to put them on, if space is an issue. I use this as a "Bus cart", with a bus tub on bottom for dirty dishes. My dish drainer can sit on top perfectly (with or with out the butcher block top. Pots and pans can dry in the middle shelf. I have a small kitchen in a 80 year old house and can't have a dishwasher. This cart helps me keep my counter tops clear of the clutter of dirty dishes and a dish drainer. The portability is great for pulling close to my range, when doing prep work and chopping veggies. LOVE THIS CART!

This butcher block is every bit as functional as it is fantastic looking. The butcher block top is REAL. Its top is at least two inches thick, and the wood straitions are gorgeous. We purchased it to use in our kitchen as a work center. It will be used extensively. Thanks Overstock!!!

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 gave this to our son for his apartment. His kitchen is small with limited counter space and cabinets. My husband assembled it in less than two hours with minimal swearing. He said the assembly was "easy" compared to other items he has put together. Pros: on wheels butcher block top cutting board wine rack storage space within cabinet door and also on two lower shelves towel rack on side Overall, my son is extremely happy with this kitchen cart. It added much-needed counter space when not in use as a cutting board and also storage for spices, dishes, etc. I highly recommend this product!

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.

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!!!

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.

I love this butcher block table. It is a heavy, sturdy piece of furniture that went together perfectly. I had to have help flipping it onto its feet, but just because its a butcher block and they are meant to be heavy. This is also the perfect hight for chopping, and it fit my corner perfectly.

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!

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.

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.

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.
