Again, Overstock has out did itself. The kitchen is beautiful, sturdy, and fine quality craftsman. Some of the review stated that it took three hours and they were right. I do recommend to use wood glue, especially on the drawers, the screw hole and any were two pieces of weed meet. The direction were easy to follow. My grandkids could put this together. Think of this kit as a giant erector set - the guys will love putting it together. As for the granite top - it takes two people. Don't even think of doing it yourself. I would highly recommend this kitchen island if you are looking to increase counter and cabinet space.
