Well made, solid piece. Instructions a little fuzzy in spots, but it all went together well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fairway Great addition to the kitchen
The assembly instructions were generally good - got a couple of things mixed up but not for long. With hardwoods being shipped to a dry climate (Colorado) there is sometimes some dimensional changes and this was no exception. Minor warping of the top but it seems to have flattened out when finally assembled and mineral oil applied. Looks great, moves easily, is the perfect size for our kitchen

Like many others who have reviewed this item, the finish on the base section of the work center leaves a bit to be desired. It took a little bit of hand sanding and re-oiling to get the legs and panels smooth. The top itself is a little bit rough too, but all cutting board surfaces will respond that way to water anyway. You just need to keep it well oiled with cutting board oil.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Treece Very heavy duty
This product is very well built, heavy duty construction. Only negative comment...it is not very well sanded or finished. Needed to oil it with recommended oil after putting it together. Also was missing 18 screws which we had to purchase from hardware store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MCRIDER This product uses real wood throughout, no composite wood.
The instructions were easy enough to follow. It was easy to put together and as we assembled it we could see that the product has excellent quality wood and fastener items. The unit is very stable when completely assembled. We did not use the included wheel assemblies because we liked the working height without them. The drawer glides allow the drawer to open to full extension and close easily.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tomwithafewextraletters Sturdy piece with good value.
Easy to assemble. Two issues, the surface finish on the top was somewhat rough. Was able to easily smooth with sandpaper. Application of mineral oil helped to seal the wood. Recommend sanding and oiling ASAP as the original surface easily stains. The other concern is the thinness of the drawer bottom. I'd not recommend storing anything heavy in the drawer. Overall a good buy though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tradersreward Wonderful workcenter! Best built I have ever seen.
great cabinet! Heavy. takes two to put it together. Only thing I can think of to improve would be if they sanded the top a little better.

help with assembly of this truly grand work center. It arrives
unassembled and the butcher block top is quite heavy. Once it's all
together, it is a very sturdy piece that looks handsome and provides a
large work surface for kitchens like mine that are counter- space
challenged. The large drawer and towel bars are a bonus. It rolls
smoothly on sturdy casters. My only quibble with the center is that the
wood components are not smoothly sanded. For something so pricey that
has to be assembled, the finish did not live up to my expectations. The
entire piece requires some sanding. It seems to me the butcher block should
have been as smooth as a baby's bottom. Instead, it will take some
finish sanding and a reoiling to make it ready to use. I also would
have thought they'd have included enough oil for one application at
Overall, we are very pleased with the Grand Work Center and would still
recommend it to others.
