The butcher block cart is beautiful and the quality seems to be fairly good, particularly the thick butcher block top. However, one of the shelves was assembled incorrectly when we received it - the slats were mounted crooked, so the shelf couldn't be installed as-is. We were going to call and have the shelf replaced, however, my husband unscrewed all the slats, re-drilled them and assembled it correctly. It was a bit of a pain, but he had it fixed the same night I received it, rather than going through the hassle of getting a new shelf. I think the price is a little high, given the sub-standard assembly, but overall it's a very nice piece and exactly what I wanted.
