Looks great, but...

This kitchen cart looks just as depicted when assembled, and by all appearances is a quality piece of furniture. However, there were three major flaws in fabrication that are unforgivable for a piece that costs this much. First, the back panel is not sized correctly; when assembled, there is about a half-inch gap between the top of the panel and the top of the cart. This is not terrible since the gap is in the back of the cart and is only visible when the door is opened. Second, the magnetic bar is not actually attracted to the magnetic catch, but this can be addressed by replacing the bar with a 2" zinc mending brace that can be purchased at a hardware store. The third and most serious flaw is that the drawer runners were pre-installed incorrectly so that they were not aligned with each other and therefore the drawer did not close properly. I was able to detach the drawer runner, drill new holes for screws at a distance of 7/8" from the original holes, and re-install it so that the drawer closed, but since the cart was already mostly assembled by the time I noticed this problem, it was quite a hassle. Now that the cart is assembled, it looks good, but I don't think the price is justified for a product that is this poorly fabricated.
