    • Well Built Island

      We just assembled the Island yesterday so I can't speak about durability at this point but the Island itself is very solid. The wood pieces fit together snugly and the overall design is good. The final product actually does look like the picture once assembled so you really do get what you order. The wood grains are really beautiful but I suppose this is random because all wood has different grain and colors.The directions were average. The pieces of wood were not labeled with letters or numbers so I suggest putting a label on each piece of wood before you get started. The masking tape we used left a little but of a mark on the wood which took a little bit of rubbing to remove afterwards. Maybe you come up with a better labeling idea.Overall, very pleased with the purchase. Its just the right size and it looks very high end given the wood texture and design. Nice storage on the sides and behind the front doors.

    • Good size and beautil color
      Verified Purchase

      I love this cart. The size is perfect for my kitchen, but OH MY putting it together was a nightmare. My husband and I worked on it and after 2 hours finally said forget it. My son and daughter in law came down and it took about 4 hours for them get it almost put together right at the end we discovered that one piece was missing. My son and husband ( not to be out done) made that piece so they could finish the cart. I have called and they said they would send the missing piece (will have to take some apart to replace). Seems to me they could put the thing partly together or all the way. We would have gladly paid extra for shipping. After saying all that negitive I really do like the cart. Would give this a five star if it wasn't for the putting it together.

    • Great piece of furniture when all done correctly!
      Verified Purchase

      I ordered this cart because it is made in the USA with wood collected right there in the State of New York. It was delivered much quicker than I thought it would be, so that was a plus. I would have to say that the worse part was the assembly instructions, as they are very vague to say the least. We were able to figure it out by pulling up the website to help us to get through the beginning stages. The bastion posts were a little tricky, as they must extend out just the right amount, in order for it to all line up in the end. We had to take apart and redo the posts twice. Once it was right, the parts fit perfectly! Instructions for this vital piece of knowledge when using these posts, was absent, so you only learned of it when you get to the end, when it did not fit snug and you sit there, scratching your head. The videos are very helpful and I suggest using them. Assembly took about 5 hours, with a lot of frustration in between, but well worth the effort, as it is a beautiful piece of functional furniture! I would rate as 5 stars for the piece itself, as it is definitely quality work, but the nightmare with assembly kicks it down a notch. They need to come up with a better way to lay out those instructions step by step, to make it easier to follow. Good job Overstock, with having this quality craftmanship company on your website...and affordable as well. It sure beats some of the other kitchen islands that were made with less desirable materials from outside the good USA. Thank you Catskill Craftsmen for making a quality product...just need some more work done on those assembly instructions!

    • For the way it looks
      Verified Purchase

      Great looking cart. I love the way it looks in my kitchen. That being said putting it together is a nightmare! My husband has over 45 years of putting stuff together, from toys for the kids all the way to making and hanging the cabinets in our kitchen remodel. So he wasn't too concerned when we read all the complaints about the instructions. The cart came on time and was well boxed so no damage and there were no missing parts. He laid it all out on the living room floor and started. About 5 hours later he said that it was the most ridiculous thing he had ever attempted to put together and gave up. Well my husband never gives up on anything so the next day he started working on it again. He said the instructions were no help at all and nothing was marked so it was taking forever. After another 5 hours or so he finally had it together and in the kitchen. I have to say I heard some words during all that time that I hadn't heard in a long time. Our DIL feel in love with the cart and said I want one Dad and seeing as you put this one together you can do mine. He told her he thinks she should divorce our son. LOL Anyway if you have never put stuff together then you really should get someone to help that has because this is a bear to put together. Would I buy it again? Yes because I love it, and I didn't have to put it together.

      This is perfect for my tiny Kitchen! And it holds a lot! It has large casters that make it easy to push from one place to another. But they lock easily to keep it in place. The side shelves are big enough to hold sandwich bags and more. It was very easy to assemble tho it will take two people. I do suggest getting the oil for the top at the time of purchase because it is raw wood. But I just love it and I think you will too!

    • Quality Product
      Verified Purchase

      I am enjoying the island tremendously. It's functional and does not take up a lot of space. It provides that little bit of extra work space that my kitchen needed while easily moves when not in use. It was not easy to put together. The instructions were not complete enough and would only recommend the product if someone had good handyman skills. I am going to send the company some suggestions that would make the installtion easier. There was a missing part but the company was apologetic and promptly sent me a replacement.

      I have purchased several catskill craftsmen kitchen carts from overstock over the years. All of them except for this one have been of very good quality. This particular cart was impossible to assemble and parts of the cart were of very cheap particle board. I am not sure this piece of furniture will even hold up for a month. Very disappointed in this brand now. I would definitely not recommend this item to anyone

    • Kitchen Island
      Verified Purchase

      The instructions that came with the kitchen island were vague in come cases. Along the way of putting it together, you needed to try to see how the bolts and set screws fit together. There was not a clear explanation of that process. Because my husband was in the trades he was able to get the island together with only one mistake. We had the doors on upside down and had to take half of the island apart to reverse them. There again the explanation and picture were not clear. All in all it did come out very nice but in total time to put it together it took us 9 hours.

      As other reviews have said, difficult to follow directions. I had to measure the to identify the parts. Front/left and Back/right is very confusing. Half way through I just started putting things where they fit. Once together, we love it. Does not look cheap like many of the islands.

    • Nice cart.
      Verified Purchase

      Would have given 5 stars if assembly was reasonable. Instructions are very hard to follow and the parts are not labelled. Every step is a guess which results in twice the work when the guess is wrong. The finished cart is high quality but be prepared for an aggravating assembly process.

    • Unbelievably complicated to put together!
      Verified Purchase

      My fiancé spent 4 hours today trying to put this piece together and didn't make a dent. Why on Earth wouldn't the company label the pieces? The directions are so confusing. I know it will be nice when it's done, but there really isn't a need to torture people. It's not a cheap piece of furniture. I expected better/ more clear directions.

    • It was very difficult to assemble
      Verified Purchase

      I would suggest you mark the wood parts better (left right front back) and how they are assembled. The way the unit goes together with allen set screws is not the best way or easiest for assembly. I put other furniture together that had a spin locking system which made it tighter and assemble with less parts. It took 5 hrs to assemble. After it was together is was fine.

      This item looks wonderful am glad I purchased it. That said my husband, who is an experienced carpenter had an difficult time assembling it. Several spots were wobbly and he had to add support. The interior shelf< top of the cupboard is just plywood. Really cheapened the look. But I just put something on top. As I said though, it looks great!

      Received this product with a couple of damaged pieces as well as missing pieces. I called the manufacturer and quickly received the replacement piece.

      This is a gorgeous item, and you will love it when it's done, however as others have said this is literally harder than to put together than literally anything I have ever experienced. Make sure you have at least 2 people...and count your parts!! If you're short any pieces they will send them out, but you don't want to find that out when you have FINALLY coerced the sides together and discover you're missing a vital brace. Learn from my misery. :)
