Pleasantly Surprised. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the materials and the sturdiness of the construction. This cart uses real wood, not particle board. And the butcher block top has an extra coating to make it resistant to liquids. The drop leaf is well-made and offers a HUGE working surface when needed. This cart is sturdy enough and large to hold all our holiday feast and wheel it into the dining room so our guests would have more table room. Then the drop leaf folds down to store it easily in the kitchen. Even with the drop leaf down, there is plenty of room available for meal preparation. I laid out all the ingredients, plates and utensils for breakfast the next morning and had everything I needed at my fingertips next to the stove. The drawer is good for holding all our kitchen towels. The storage space beneath is so spacious we haven't figured out yet what to put there. The knife block assembly didn't seem to make much sense... until we put the top in place. Then it was an "Ah, ha" moment when we discovered how useful it actually was. The assembly instructions are drawing only. To assemble correctly, you need to study ALL drawings VERY carefully, as some parts of step 2 need very detailed info from steps 3 and 10 to assemble correctly. And assembly is definitely a 2-person job. (Some parts are very heavy.) That said, assembly errors are few and easy to correct. It took my wife and I around 2.5 hours to complete, and the results were well worth the effort.
Just what I needed. I use this as a grooming table. It holds all my supplies and I can charge my trimmers in the open space between the cabinet and the top. With the leaves down, it fits perfectly in my kitchen. With them open, I have plenty of work space. My small rotating grooming table sits on top. The assembly was moderately difficult for one person and the instructions left something to be desired. Not geared to the novice. However, when I was done, I was proud of the results.
Inheritance. I'm disabled. My kitchen is huge. I needed an island and a butcher block. Food prep is much easier. Everything is right next to me now. I am so amazed at the quality of workmanship. I shouldn't be though, it's made in America. Thank you. I already have some looking to buy one for themselves.
solid performer. I found this wine rack to be strong and solid once constructed. It is also stylish. If you plan to purchase this product you'll want to give yourself a large area to build it and be very cognizant of the pieces because it can be put together incorrectly and will still go together.Drawer could stand to be a little bigger for cork screws and bottle resealers.
Great looking and useful. We love this bench, but we use it outside our condo entrance way. This is our second bench, as it does not weather well, it gets hit with lots of rain at times. But we have not found a design IN WHITE that looks and functions as well. We got four years out of the first and hope for the same from this one.
Storage chest bench. I bought this for the room I designed in my home for my grandchildren.I wanted to maximize the space and incorporate a lot of storage pieces.I bought this to use as a little coloring table,but it also has nice deep storage.I bought 2 cute lime green storage cubes at [...] that hold all the art supplies and are perfect for litle stools when coloring.The bench holds all the Barbie toys,including a huge Barbie camper.When the grandchildren are not here,all the toys are hidden and they have a nice neat room.(I have other storage pieces also.)The piece is not really deep(front to back) but height and width are good.It is a heavy well made piece. It does require assembly ,but my husband did it quickly.

Their picturesque views are second to none. The area is noted for downhill skiing, prime hunting, and terrific fishing. Stamford is also known as “The Queen of the Catskills”, a name used by thousands of metropolitan New Yorkers, who, at the turning of the 19th to the 20th century, took the long train ride to spend their summers in the cool mountain air.
