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.
Not difficult to assemble, took 2 hours. Quality is good, I use it everyday and as a buffet table when I have company. Love the fact that I can move it where I need it, looks great in my kitchen.
This island was exactly what I wanted in terms of size and function. It was packed well and easy to assemble. However, IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE PICTURE! It is not all one similar color. It is a blend of several hardwoods ranging from light to dark. (Think about the different colors you see in a butcher block top.) I suggest you look at this product on other websites because the picture on this site is misleading. They do have the best price, though! With that said, my island arrived with 4 doors that were all different colors and did not look nice together. I contacted the manufacturer (Catskill Craftsmen) and they were very good to work with. They sent me 4 similar doors that arrived in just a few days. The island also needs to be rubbed with oil once a week for the first three weeks, and it will get darker with each application. I am pleased with the appearance now. It blends well with my oak cabinets and has a lot of storage space.
This Island is beautiful and very well made. My only complaint is that I wish the parts were marked so you would know one piece from another especially the hardware. But overall and great piece. Very pleased.
