I liked the look of this piece and found it when I decided on getting the matching barnside kitchen island. The price is good for what it is. It's solid woods (I think a soft wood like rubberwood or something). I am more than familiar with putting "needs assembly" furniture together so I went ahead and ordered it. The shipping was super fast. The piece comes in two boxes and I took everything out before beginning assembly to make sure it was all there. As a PSA I will now tell you what you need to know if you decide to purchase this piece: 1. There are 4 screws for the magnet pieces. They are mixed up with the other tiny screws and the difference is that they are a dark brown vs. black (you need a good eye to sort them out). 2. When putting on pieces E & F (they are the back stabilizers) be sure to put the sides with the pilot holes facing on the outer side because at the end that is where you put the screws in. I did not realize this and put all of my pieces the wrong way. Not a big deal to me because I just put the screws on the inside of the cabinet instead of the back outside. (and there was no way in h.e.doublehockeysticks that I was going to take off pieces just to put those pieces on the right way). 3. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT CON ABOUT THIS PIECE. The bottom piece could be used by itself. The top part is similar to a hutch on a desk. UNFORTUNATELY the top piece of the bottom part HAS NO HOLES drilled for the cam screws. I noticed it right away when putting the thing together. I had to take the two dowels out of the top to put the top part on the bottom part. I have decided not to drill holes for the cam screws because all of the other cam screw holes are drilled and they have a plastic/rubber insert to make the cam screws sit securely. If I drill holes (even if I would be lucky enough to get the holes drilled in the right place) I am afraid I'll mess up the piece. I've decided that I will use L brackets on the inside to secure the top piece to the bottom. I haven't put the doors on yet so I'm hoping I have no problem getting those to fit perfectly. I put it together by myself (43 yo F) and it took me about 3 hours doing it somewhat leisurely.

Good quality, but it should have little whit round plastic covers to cover the screws whic are exposed on the sides.

I assembled this myself; it took about 2.5 hours. It would have been less, but I had to drill out a dowel hole in piece #29 and re-set the metal bolt receptacles in piece #5. The wood top looks nice and feels secure, but the leaf can't hold much weight. If I lean on the leaf while it is extended, the plastic screw mounts start coming out on the bottom side. I think the top could be more securely attached.

Very sturdy and large/tall enough for a microwave. The cutting board is a nice plus. Only thing I do not like is the black plastic shelf supports that show from under the shelves. This is a chrome finish cart -- not to be confused with stainless steel.

Shelves come wrapped in plastic, and there's a set of screws fot the top shelf which is tricky to attach without help. The item was too heavy for me to safely lift & carry. Careful not to get it wet as it will rust & or scratch the paint chip off. Sturdy peice of furniture for wrought iron lovers and a nice addition to any room.

Trim on base bottom was painted poorly. Set of stools missing plastic protectors. Edges on shelfs poor finish and missing trim. Other than that ok.

I cannot believe the number of people who think this is real wood! It's fiberboard and plastic! It states in "details" that it's MFD and Nickel Board. If it's extremely heavy, it's not real wood. If I pay close to $$$$ dollars I want it to be real wood. Shesh!

We received our prep table (work station) in a very timely manner. Not at all disappointed in it. It's exactlly what we had hoped and has made such a difference in navigating around in my small kitchen. Very easy to roll about on good solid casters. The only suggestion I would make to the manufacture is to place the bottle of mineral oil in it's own plastic bag as it leaked a little bit but it was on the casters and no biggie! That is certainly not worthy of giving one less star. I love having the stainless steel bowl to slide underneath the inlaid top and allow putting either your scraps or diced veggies in it. There is also a frame to slide in underneath the top for trash. Just haven't used it yet. Cart is well made and well worth the money. Thank you Chris & Chris for a well made product!

The two boxes arrived in good shape, and all pieces were included and in good shape. I put this together myself in about 3 hours -- be sure not to tighten the screws fully until everything is together. The last leg took some muscling to line up the screw holes, so you need as much give as possible to get it into place. You put the island together upside down, but I was able to flip it over myself (I am a 65 year old lady). Very pleased with the island, it fits right into my industrial type kitchen. I use my portable cutting boards because I'm not sure that the top will really serve as a butcher block. I can fit my knife block, cookbook holder, KitchenAid mixer, cutting board and mixing bowls on top for my marathon cooking sessions -- plenty of room for everything. The top shelf holds my cutting boards as well as all my mixing utensils in shallow plastic bins. The bottom shelf holds all my stainless steel mixing bowls and metal bake ware. I was initially thinking of getting a solid island so that everything would be hidden behind doors, but I'm glad I got this one. The kitchen still seems very open, it's easy to keep track of everything (no more lost items in the back of drawers and cabinets). Great value, really organizes my cooking and provides a central place to unload my groceries. Can't say enough good things about this island.
