I looked for months before I saw this cart on Overstock. I have seen similar carts at several other major retail stores, but at twice the price! My husband assembled the cart while I was at work, and he said it was pretty tough to put together because the only instructions you get are pictures, but he finished it in an afternoon and I Love it!! It is certainly solid, and even my picky husband said the wood was very good quality. I love being able to move it from spot to spot and I love the fact that it provides space for my cookbooks on the open shelf while still holding appliances in the cabinet section. The butcher block top is perfect for my needs since my counter space is very limited in our little kitchen! I highly recommend this product, just make sure either you, or someone else, can assemble without step by step instructions!
