This is made of pressed wood, and way overpriced for what it is. Keep in mind the picture shows cute, colorful dishes in the cabinet, which makes it look super cute. In real life, it is cute, but not nearly how it appears in the photo. The bottom drawer also gets stuck when closing it. I use it as a bookcase, and it feels sturdy once the back (which is more like laminated cardboard) is hammered on.

This piece is just ok. The laminate is REALLY cheap looking- and the top makes you go cross-eyed a little bit. The cabinet door doesn't shut properly. It's just for supplies in the bathroom in our warehouse/office so it fine for our purposes. But if you're looking for something in a home it looks as cheap as it is.

This stepping stool is not only attractive, it is sturdy! I feel very comfortable standing on it, even on my slippery laminate flooring! I have not found something to "store" inside it yet, but the stool is useful in so many ways. I leave it out in the den because the color and style matches my existing furniture. A good purchase, all around!

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!!!!!

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.

It was sort of a pain to put together but the end result is very nice. This is a heavy duty piece for the price. The top is a laminate...not real wood..

I'm very happy this unit. Even though it is not completely hardwood, (the side and back panels and shelves are laminated particle board), you'd never know to look at it. The rest is composed of various types of hardwood. Mine looks like a mix of cherry, oak and maple, and looks very similar to the photo. It is a handsome piece. As far as assembly, a couple of screw drivers and a hammer are all the tools required. I'm very handy and it took me about 2.5 hours to completely assemble. Just make sure to read through the entire directions at least once before starting. All of the screw packets are labeled and the ones used in each step are clearly listed, so make sure you use the right ones at each step. The company also has online assembly videos, which I found helpful as well. I only had one problem. A couple of holes in the back panel were drilled in the wrong place preventing assembly. I called Catskill Craftsmen and to their credit, they shipped the replacement part that day, no questions asked. Don't know how common these QA/QC problems occur, but I did read some other reviewers, that had similar problems. Sounded like the company also took care of their problems quickly. The top is exactly 24"x 17". Although the width in the specs say 25.25 that includes the towel bar. Wish I could have gotten the larger size, but we have limited space, so this one was perfect for us. They treat the unit with butcher block oil, but you can apply a permanent finish if desired. They include a pamphlet that explains the types of finishes you can use and which ones not to use, so read that info. before finishing. If you want to use the top surface as a cutting board then you have to periodically treat it with butcher block, as that is only thing that is food safe. Overall very satisfied with the purchase. I hope my review helps.

This cart looks great when put together. The drawer glides open and closed as if it is floating on air, and the bottom cabinet opens and closes perfectly and sits squarely. The item weighs a TON, and comes completely in pieces...many, many, many pieces. If you, or someone you know, are not well equipped when it comes to do-it-yourself projects or in putting RTA furniture together, I would recommend purchasing another cart. I am lucky in that I am capable of such things and put the entire thing together alone in just under 2 hours. The directions are not completely clear, so it took a bit of finesse and brain power to determine which direction the wine shelves should go. That said, the ridge/bottle stopper on each shelf should face upwards and be closest to the floor when it is laying on its back and being put together. If you are not familiar with Cam Locks, back away from this purchase because, in addition to a ton of screws, there are very many of them. The "wood" is more of a laminated product, and the side of the adjustable shelf chipped when I was standing the cart up to put the top on when my fingernail scraped it. So...I am very careful not to be too rough around the cart, and basically use "kid gloves" when working on or around it. As I said, it looks great when put together and looks more expensive than it was, but it's definitely a project on arrival and the wood isn't as durable as I'd like for it to be. If I had more funds available for such a purchase I would have gone with a solid wood product, like a butcher block, but this will do for now. Instead of using it for a spare counter that I can use for preparing food, I decided to use it as a rolling bar. It seems to be a great use for it, and exactly what I would recommend it for.

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.
