When the item was delivered, it came in three boxes. We were unable to assemble the island until a few weeks later. Box one contained the front panels and unfortunately, one of the panels was cracked. One of the drawers was chipped as well. When we started to assemble the island top, we noticed that there were no screws. A trip to the nearby hardware store was needed. Island took five hours to assemble, looks ok, except for the large crack, which is hidden by two chairs. Don't think quality control is very thorough on these items.
We love our kitchen island. It went together easily, taking a couple of hours (needs two people, as the granite top is HEAVY). We had a lot of problems with the UPS delivery (one of three boxes was delivered, and then UPS decided to return one of the remaining two to Overstock. I have to say that Overstock customer service was better than I could have asked for - they dealt with UPS and sent out a whole new island.
I had been in the market for a butcher block cart but when I say this island I went for it. This is definitely a beautiful piece that will compliment just about any kitchen. It comes 99% assembled, all you have to do is put the top on it and screw it on. it is pretty big so make sure you have a large kitchen with enough room.
