This item has a few sheets of plywood for the shelving and the sides, but everything else is real, solid wood. No particle board! Easy to assemble but it does take a little bit of time. (It took me two and 1/2 hrs) Looks amazing when completed. You will need to purchase butcher block mineral oil to rub it down once assembled. Worth the price.
Everything about this cart is top quality. The parts are quality, the wood is quality. The engineering is perfect, every nut, bolt, hole is perfectly alligned making assembly easy. I am certain if I do as the instructions suggest and take care of the butcher block top as directed, this cart will last a very long time.
This butcher block is expensive but we bought as an heirloom. My kids are going to get this. My one critique is the pulls on the drawer. They are a little wimpy. All in all, outstanding!
