There was a lot of assembly for such an expensive product. The directions did not list all of the tools I would need to complete assembly as well. Some of the pieces were mislabeled in the directions, luckily I was smart enough to figure it out. The laminate cracked in half when I tried to put the screws in. The screws did not screw into the wood with a screwdriver, a power drill was needed but I don't have one. This was a waste of money and it is still sitting in my kitchen only half assembled and broken. I wish I could get my money back but I disposed of the packaging material as soon as I opened it.
