The cart is attractive, a nice size and very funtional. It will give me the additional storage and work space I need. The top doors and drawer are solid wood and nicely finished. The sides, back and shelves are thinner, not solid wood, thus not at sturdy as I would have liked. I won't be storing heavy items inside the cart. Assemby was relatively easy, but if you're someone who needs step by step instructions laid out carefully, you might have a harder time. Only issue I had was one of the doors did not hang exactly right, so is harder to shut and will need to be sanded or slightly planed to fit exactly. In summation, a good value for the money and an attractive asset to the kitchen.
