This kitchen island looks very nice. I followed the instruction and it took me about an hour to assemble it by hand (no power tool). It is study. Just that the metal rod of one of the door hinges keeps falling off. I used some pipe tape to wrap the rod and the problem solved. I also upgraded the draw and door knobs to stainless steel knobs (it was wood from the package) that left over from my kitchen cabinets. It does make a big different for the look. I love this kitchen island; however, I give only 4 stars because the measurement is slightly off that the door is not completely aligned and leaving a small gap between the drawer and the door.
