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.

After looking at multiple kitchen carts (most of which cost more than a kitchen) we came across this one and are SO PLEASED with our purchase. We have a small kitchen and needed both additional storage space and counter space. This cart supplies both in a high quality, good looking, sturdy piece of furniture. I had my doubts about the wheels locking and it not wobbling when I was chopping/cooking. The cart is like a solid table, and when you put the wheel locks on, it goes no where. It LOOKS and FEELS high quality. We are extremely happy we purchased this cart, use it daily, and had no problems putting it together. Highly recommend.

Fabulous find; I use mine for crafting and card making. The shelves are convenient for holding equipment that I am not using at the moment. Anyone who crafts knows how cluttered your work surface becomes if shelving is not available that is nearby. And, I just roll it away when finished.

I'm very pleased with this cart. I have a small kitchen and this provides extra counter space and storage, the wheels make it mobile, and it looks nice. It was easy to put together - I'm horrible at putting furniture together and I was a little intimidated at first by all the pieces, but the instructions were good and it's all modular pieces that snap into place; no tools are needed. A part of me liked how other carts with doors looked, to hide my junk and keep things looking neat, but I think this open/modular style is better because you can adjust the shelf sizes to whatever you want and you can arrange the pieces how you want or leave pieces out. I left out the towel bar. I love the hooks on the side, that has been handier than I expected, and the bamboo cutting board is sturdy and quality. The board is a little heavy so lifting it out for a lot washing would be hard so I don't cut meats on it; I use a separate board, which I think is a good idea anyway, I use this board for veggies/fruits and then wipe it down with hot water. I also used some mineral oil on it so that it doesn't dry out, I'll probably do that once a month.

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.

We left the casters off of ours to make it look more like furniture, less like a cart. It is a perfect fit in our kitchen. We are using it as an island. (The back is finished so it doesn't have to be against a wall.) The height is still great, even without the casters. Though it did take a little time to put together, it was well worth it. Highly recommended.

This a great looking, sturdy piece of furniture. I also love how it blends in with my kitchen without taking over the style of the kitchen like so may free standing islands do.The openness of the product also gives you plenty of options on how to personalize your kitchen. I used distressed wooden containers on the top two shelves for onions, garlic, potatoes etc. and an antique dough bowl on the bottom.

I should have read the measurements carefully not as high as i thought it would be so found another use for it

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.
