First, thanks to the reviewer who recommended reinforcing the floor of this base cabinet! The floor is so thin it really needs a few 2x4's under it, and the effort really pays off! I can stand in it now. The back is also incredibly thin, almost cardboard, but it makes drilling the holes for plumbing that much easier.
The main feature is the solid oak face frame and doors; these are pretty good quality for the price and they accept stain well. The laminate they sell at HD for the ends of the cabinets is too thin; the face frame still extends beyond one laminated sheet. As long as I was buying this on sale I picked up extra laminate and doubled it up... it uses extra contact cement but it brings the sides out to match the face frame better.
In summary if you can find it on 20% discount and you have more free time than money, this product can be brought up to a reasonable standard for use as a kitchenette... I don't think I would use it for a daily high use kitchen. It is stapled together and the drawer bottoms are thin, but other than that it's a decent value.

One of the center cabinet door wasn't aligned with other door. Only front side is real wood.

Great cabinet, for a great price. We bought 2, and made a wet bar with a fridge in the middle. Very easy to stain.

Bought this cabinet to add more cabinet space to our kitchen. Not the best construction but if your handy this can be made stronger by using L-brackets in all the corners. The plastic ones are cheep. I also enforced the bottom of the cabinet with 2X4's to make it stronger for heavier items so there will be no warping.
Over all not bad for the buck, like i said if you are handy it only takes alittle tweeking to make it right.
Since it was some what falling apart i asked the manager for a discount and she gave one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Skypilot You get what you pay for
We were looking to put this cabinet into a rental and were shopping price rather than quality. What you are paying for here is the very nice oak front frame and doors which we stained a golden oak. The rest of the cabinet is really cheaply thrown together. There are no shelves and everything is stapled together and some misalignment happens. But I figured on doing some work anyway to strengthen and improve the cabinet here and there. The two drawers are tiny and not very deep. I had to secure the back of the drawer slides as they were simply poked through the thin back panel with plastic retaining clips. But all-in-all this will look great when installed with a nice tile top.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LaborDayKitchenRemodeler Great kitchen island base
I purchased after Black Friday & got an amazing price. I've been remodeling my galley kitchen and used this cabinet along w/ an unfinished oak upper. I put the two together, painted them, installed it and tiled the top with left over back splash tiles. It's made a great gathering place and is an affordable quality addition to our kitchen. Only complaint was that there are no walls dividing center cabinet from outer smaller cabinet doors. Leaves one huge storage area w/o shelving. But I'm completely satisfied.
