Thanks to earlier reviews my husband and I approached the assembly of this bar cart with fair warning. As a result we were able to put the cart together first try in less than an hour. Our suggestion is to begin assembly with the cart upside down. Line up all bars with the screw holes per diagram making sure that stretcher bar B has the front holes facing outward to later accept the front metals. Hold off placing screws. Turn the cart upright and gently pull the stretcher bars apart on one side so you can slide in the 2 shelves. Then realign the stretcher bars with the holes. Now begin placing the long screws into the shelves to secure them. Do not tighten them down yet. Next turn the cart upside down again and place the remaining screws. Once all screws are in place. Tighten everything. Add casters. Reverse handles on the tray. Upright the cart and place the tray on the top. Should be perfect. Our only complaint was a small split in the top tray where the laminate had cracked. A little Elmers glue fixed it easily. Love the cart.

There was a lot of assembly for such an expensive product. The directions did not list all of the tools I would need to complete assembly as well. Some of the pieces were mislabeled in the directions, luckily I was smart enough to figure it out. The laminate cracked in half when I tried to put the screws in. The screws did not screw into the wood with a screwdriver, a power drill was needed but I don't have one. This was a waste of money and it is still sitting in my kitchen only half assembled and broken. I wish I could get my money back but I disposed of the packaging material as soon as I opened it.

We're very pleased with this purchase. My husband assembled it one day while I was at work, so I can't comment on ease of assembly other than to say that the screws were very tight. My husband took the manufacturer's advice and dipped the screws in a little vegetable oil, which helped a lot. The manufacturer dips all the wood in oil before shipping, but we gave it a couple more coats, especially on the top. It looks great. We're very pleased with how it looks and how sturdy it is. The sides and back are laminated, but they look very nice after assembly. I discovered after visiting the manufacturer's website that this product is made in America with American wood and the company is fairly "green," so overall we feel very good about this purchase.

Don't do it. I know this cabinet looks cute, and it seems like a good price for real wood. And maybe like me you are very experienced with assembling furniture, that's why I ignored the negative comments. Unfortunately the negative comments are absolutely accurate, and I am furious about the time I am having to put into this piece to make it workable. It's wood, all right, but it is many pieces of laminated wood with many, many obvious "finger joints", plus a lot of black blotching. The holes are too big for the dowels, and I used most of an 8-ounce bottle of glue to help stabilize this thing (glue not included). The cams (no extra) are pot metal and will crack if much force applied. There are an enormous number of pieces, which would be OK if you ended up with a solid product. But because there is only a cardboard back board, the sides are a bit wobbly even after I used metal braces top and bottom, so now I am going to have to get some plywood and screws and replace the cardboard back. I've spent hours painting this already to cover up the obvious joints and ugly wood. When I am finally done I will have a nice spice cabinet which is what I wanted this for, but something I bought to make life easier has been more hellish to deal with than the dressers I have built. Worst Overstock purchase I have ever made. Sad to say I have MDF pieces better engineered and designed than this.

Like a lot of you, I've been looking on line for a cart such as this for my large kitchen. We purchased a second home in AZ and have been trying to furnish it lol. I put aside some money for an item such as this. I read the reviews or at least enough of them, saw there were only 4 left and I snatched it up. There was only one piece where the holes didn't match up. No big deal when we had a drill. Pretty easy to assemble and it's better looking in person than on line. Only thing I'm wondering is whether it's laminate on the top of the butcher block or just some sort of Varathane? For the price it's a STEAL!!!!!

I just finished putting this piece together. Unbelievable! It is so poorly made, the holes didn't line up so the drawer won't close as it hits the shelf. There is no way to fix it now as there are dowels which would mean I would have to drill new holes and basically take the whole thing apart. The drawer is so flimsy. The bottom is a thin piece of laminate that bows downward and I haven't even put anything in it! One of the cabinet doors does not have a hole to put the spring dowel in so I am without a door until I figure that one out. I order quite a bit of furniture on line and have never had this much trouble. I can't send it back. It was nearly completed before I knew the drawer and cabinet did not work as it is one of the last steps. Save yourself a headache and look elsewhere.

Really solid, good quality kitchen cart, especially when you have seen the laminated particle board junk that gets sold in the same price range. A note about the finish: I took a shot, feeling that the picture probably didn't portray it well. I was right. The pic IMO makes the finish appear to be a low-gloss, fairly solid stain. The actual product has a lot of nice, natural wood grain showing through, is a semi-gloss finish, and the color isn't as 'rusty' as the color shown on my monitor. It falls somewhere between a cherry and a walnut finish, in my eyes. If you're feeling put off by the opaque, barn red sort of finish that the low resolution picture shows, and are looking for something with more of a natural wood look with a warm, medium brown stain...go for it. It's a nice solid stand that looks much nicer in person. And the butcher block top weighs a ton. I'm very pleased.

This kitchen trolley was easy to put together by myself. Quality is good, directions were (pictures only) easy to follow. The piece is holding our heavy microwave and can still roll around on the casters easily. The size was exactly as stated. The color is a very slight off white - not a pure cool white. The butcher block top is just laminate not an actual butcher block - though under a microwave it looks nice. The bottom storage section is large enough to store a 6 pack of paper towels and the doors have a magnetic closure. Overall very happy with this purchase.

I needed this storage space to augment a very small rental home kitchen, and it is storing nearly all our food, which leaves the rest of the cabinets for dishes and cookware. It assembled in a straightforward way, and I appreciated the leveling feet especially. The appearance is very attractive. It goes great with the Bermuda kitchen island. So much more appealing than plain white laminate presswood pantries. It was expensive considering the purpose and function, but to me the beauty was worth it for my kitchen. The center panel between the top and bottom cabinets has a different composition than the doors and sides. It may be engineered, because the finish scratches off easily from this rim. I've tried hiding the mars with furniture repair crayons and such. Waxy ones don't stick to the scratched area, nor do water based ones seem to want to sink in. The area below the scratched off finish feels kind of plastic. A black Sharpie has fairly well hidden the problem.
If your kitchen has little counter space but a lot of floor space, adding a kitchen island is a smart way to increase your work and storage areas. There is wide a variety of ready-made kitchen islands and kitchen carts available to match any design, style, or decor, with features that will work in your kitchen.
