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.

Somewhat difficult to put together - well, really only one problem with the false drawer pins being too small to hold it in place. A quick trip to the hardware store to get 1" pins and we were in business. The drawer is huge (perfect for spice storage) and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I could fit on the lower shelves. Very pleased with the purchase!

I needed help putting it together because you really need 4 or 5 arms. But we 2 sisters did a fine job of it. You must read the instructions and do exactly what they tell you to do, and in the proper order. We had a few oops moments, had to go back and redo a few connections, but we got a perfect fit on everything. I had plenty of extra screws, connectors, pins, etc. Once we got the hang of the connectors and the pins, it was a right speedy job. Took us about 2-1/2 hours to put together everything - except the 3 drawers which I did by myself the next day. Took about half an hour for all three drawers. The drawer glides went in perfectly, no trouble with balance or fit. What a wonderfully functional piece of kitchen furniture. Heavy, solid, impressive looking. I look forward to rolling out pie dough and cutting out cookies, chopping veggies, everything you need a large counter by the kitchen window to do. So happy! Get this one!

I was surprised when the Island got shipped 2 weeks sooner than expected. This was good because it was a Christmas gift for my wife. I do cabinet work but am almost always too busy to build anything for my own home. I chose this one because I liked the style, the flat panel doors , the warm maple wood and the reasonable price. The assembly went pretty well but the directions were confusing at times. All the holes lined up and all of the screws worked as planned except the screws for the drawer slides of which the heads were too small for the holes even though they were in a special bag stating that they were bigger than normally supplied. Instead, I used 4 #8 screws of the same length that should have gone for the braces for the top. The smaller #6 screws worked fine for the top braces. The doors swing on pins instead of hinges so there is no adjustment but none was needed. The bottom is designed to sit on pins like the middle shelf but I plan to get some small angle brackets for the bottom shelf so the unit doesn't wrack out of square. I also plan on replacing (eventually) the drawer slides with full extension ball bearing slides so you can see what's in the back of the drawer and because the top of the drawer front rubs on the counter top. There is no adjustment on the slides provided. I will also replace the handles with some oil rubbed bronze handles to match the hardware in the kitchen. I also drilled two more holes for the middle shelf for more adjustment. Since the wood came with an oil finish, it will probably need more finish in time but that's an easy thing to do. The instructions tell you which oil to use to re-coat the unit. All in all, the island should serve the porpoise and provide some much-needed counter space and storage. The quality was well worth the $250 I paid (free shipping) and it was the lowest price I could find after looking at about 10 sites. I saw this island advertised for almost $400. at one site! I think the average person will be happy with the island as supplied, I just wanted to make it a little more unique with the little changes I made.

I was a little hesitant to buy this after reading the reviews, but I'm glad I did. Read the previous reviews, as we got several good ideas. We made a copy of the parts list and then cut it up and pasted it on each part. That really helped. I thought the instructions were pretty good, but there were a couple of parts that not really easy to do. I ended up leaving out a couple of pins, but it is sturdy and not wobbly at all. My husband and I worked together most of the time and it took us about 8 hours to complete it. It looks really nice, moves easily and I really like the fact that it has doors on both front and back to make it really easy to access the cooking supplies inside. The drawer is really big and great for big bulky implements. The top, doors, front,back and side supports and extension leaves are nice solid blocks of wood, but the side panels are just a flimsy piece of plywood veneer. It would have been much better if the sides were made the same way as the doors and were a solid panel. The interior had a bottom and an adjustable shelf. Both of those were just plywood and aren't super sturdy and they are both only supported by 4 thin furniture pins. There is plenty of room inside, but I would think you would have to be really careful not to put anything really heavy inside. The whole unit was pretty rough. Definitely needed sanding and oiling. The 2 lockable castors I paced on opposing corners and that does help keep it from moving, but they are really hard to lock. I am hoping that they will get better with use. Not "fine furniture", but I think it will hold up well in my country kitchen.

I bought this unit as a birthday gift based on the positive reviews. As far as the finished product goes, the reviews are spot on, a very nice cabinet for the money. I do agree what there should be a light in the lower section and the include light for the top is pretty basic. I didn't bother installing it. I'm going to do something customer so there will be LED lights in both sections. I've purchased numerous items with assembly required (most here) and this item was hands down the worst I've had period. The cam locks and dowel pins that assemble the larger parts of the cabinet were pretty straight forward. I was surprised there was no glue. The problem was installing the hinges to the doors and the cabinet. The pre-drilled holes were about half as big as needed, the wrong angle and not deep enough. I striped the head off 3 screws trying to get them tightened. Finally I grabbed my drill and started drilling them out until I found a size that let me fully tighten the screws. Luckily they are generous and provide a lot of extra hardware. When I see parts with the white identifying tags on them, the first thing I think of is how easy is it to get them off. These were terrible. I actually broke the nails on both thumbs scratching of the letters, up arrows and the tempered glass stickers not to mention taking the time to use a goo removed on the adhesive residue. Again this was a lot worse than any other item. It takes 30-45 days for a cargo container to travel from China to the U.S. I'm guessing this one must have done it in the summer and got extra baked on. I'm pretty mechanically inclined with a good array of tools and my assembly time was still around 5-6 hours which is about twice what I think it should have been. I didn't really like the "orange-ish" caps that cover the cam lock holes. The holes are positioned so they aren't that easy to see in the first place, so adding caps that don't match the oak wood just seems to draw attention to them. I think there was a review where someone had trouble with the boards that hold the mirrors in place. Mine was fine, there was plenty of screws that hold it in place. My unit had some scratches on the mirrors and wood that I'm going to contract customer service about. As this was a birthday gift I didn't have the luxury of not putting it together while I waited for replacements. I have always read in the product reviews here that they are very good about getting parts replaced, this will be my first time doing so. My "NO" vote for recommending to a friend is due to the fact that a "normal" person would end up returning this or breaking it due to the difficulty with the hinges. Otherwise it's a great looking displace case.

Had been considering this cabinet for weeks and finally purchased in the white. I consider myself an experienced furniture assembler who enjoys it and my home is crammed with "rustic" assembled pine furniture, so I discounted the remarks about "wobbliness" and other issues. Well, pride goes before a fall. While made of very soft, lower grade pine with plenty of filler, there seems to have been some care done in the design and assembly instructions. The hardware is various, the cams are strong but the additional screws strip easily. For the most part, holes were drilled correctly, more or less. I coped with 1) Big holes for the thin dowels were lavishly filled with wood glue, but at least all the holes were drilled deeply enough. 2) Re-drilled enlarged cam holes were off in 2 spots, so when the cams were tightened the wood split a bit, also glued 3) Off-drilled pilot holes for the doors - by deliberately forcing the screws I got the doors more or less straight, but the cheap hinge design doesn't allow for adjustment. In the future I may replace the hinges and the plastic shelf pins (I added 1 inch L brackets already top and bottom for more stability). 4) A knob pulled off immediately - there is a little metal collar in the knob to hold the screw, bu the pine is so soft it just pulls out - replaced with longer wood screw. When assembly was over, I had a headache, an eye twitch, and had to go lay down for a while. But, you get this together and it is just so gosh-darned cute, fit the space in my tiny kitchen perfectly, the 5-foot height is great as it fits under fixed shelving and you can put stuff on top, and it's real wood - now assembled I am very happy with it. With all the issues there are a lot of good things to say, like the pre-drilled holes in the pressboard back, the sides are not plywood, the holes were mostly drilled correctly and it went together square (no pounding with a rubber mallet), nice cream color, well-packed, good instructions, holds tall juice bottles etc., and the nice paneled doors. So I'd say purchase this with the reservation - have wood glue on hand, experience is useful, and so is having extra misc. hardware and tools. Definitely a rustic piece with a lot of charm when assembled - also fast ship from Overstock.

It looks like the picture. I like the attention to detail - e.g. the pin that prevents the drawer from falling out. However, it's smaller than I thought so often bigger pans and things won't fit on the shelf. The butcher block is a bit thin as well. Still, for a smaller apartment kitchen, this was a good buy.

All in all a very good experience. good quality and quick service. Super easy to put up. virtually no assembly. just a couple of hinge pins. It came quickly and it was light enough for an old woman to handle and strong enough to hold dutch ovens and books.
