Good design, but poor materials
 from Oneonta, NY,  Jun 5, 2013

This butcher block bin is exactly what I wanted for my kitchen. Unfortunately, it was a pain to assemble (and I work in construction!), and the materials that the legs are made of are cheap particle board or compressed cardboard/wood product, and it splits easily. I wheeled it over a small carpet transition lip in my house, and the two trailing wheels fell off before I even felt any resistance. I was specifically concentrating on being careful of the wheels, because I know the materials were weak, and I broke the wheels completely off immediately. Normally when you're wheeling something like this, you slowly approach the lip of the carpet or door threshold, feel it make contact with the transition, and then you gently pull to let it come up and over the transition. In this case, the wheels just pulled apart the fibrous wood/cardboard product and split the white paint up a few inches. I'm just going to glue wood to the bottom in place of the wheels.
