Good Quality, Easy to Assemble
The cart arrived on time and in good condition. The quality of the materials is quite good, and all the parts needed for assembly were included. The top and frame are solid wood, and most of the rest, with the exception of the bottom of the drawer, is nice veneer (plywood). The drawer/door handles, towel racks, and casters are all extremely solid.
I assembled it by myself on the bedroom rug in less than an hour. The instructions are reasonably clear, but do require close attentions to the details of the illustrations. I've assembled office furniture before, so I'm familiar with the kinds of connectors used and how they work. If you're new to this, I would advise reviewing the instructions while looking at the parts.
You can use a hand screwdriver in most cases. there are a couple of places where bolts go into nylon bushings that can be hard to start by hand. I used a power screwdriver to start them, but switched to a hand screwdriver in order to avoid driving the bolts in too far.
The finished cart is sturdy and looks good. Two of the wheeled casters lock, which will be useful for us, since we'll be using it in a motorhome.

Nice but hard to assemble.
The unit arrived in good shape, carefully packed and marked well for assembly purposes. I believe the job would have gone smoother if I had gotten someone to help me. Once I got to the step for the drawer, I knew something in an earlier step had gone awry. I was tired by then and hoped I could get by with the final result. Unfortunately, after a couple of months, the ill-fitting pieces can't be ignored. Now I have to take it apart and start over. Otherwise, it serves the purpose for which it was purchased.

the qualtiy of the piece is great, well worth the money. The cart moves easily and the top is a top solid piece of wood. The only issue I had was during the assembly some of the screws were difficult to set and screw. Other than that the cart is perfect for my needs as storage and a place to set my microwave.

I am very pleased with the look of this island and was also amazed at how easy it was to put together. The instructions were concise and easy to follow and the parts were very well labeled. I would not consider myself mechanically inclined at all but put it together all by myself in about two hours.....and I'm a 63 yr old woman! It was an excellent purchase.

Instructions partially missing
I bought this island for my wife for Mother's Day. It looks great and the quality is better than I expected. I had planned to build her a very similar kitchen cart but decided it would ultimately be cheaper to buy her this instead.
I wonder how many other people received assembly instructions that were missing two full pages? Fortunately I was able to figure it out, but others might not be so lucky as I. That's why this one got 4 stars.

This cart was exactly what I expected. I needed a little extra storage space in a small kitchen. The style blends beautifully with my cabinets. I was able to assemble this without difficulty, but it would have been nice to have an extra set of hands. The parts are clearly labeled. The vendor packed the product with care and it arrived quickly in perfect condition.
