Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cookielady I am SO in love with this cabinet!!!
I desperately needed storage for my quilt and embroidery supplies in my craft room. Luckily for me, I stumbled across the Martha Stewart Living line at Home Depot. I ordered this cabinet, another one with two drawers and two doors, and two 4-drawer short cabinets for storage under my sewing table.
These cabinets met all my needs, and exceeded my expectations! The flat file is perfect for storing my large cutting mats and pressing mats. The movable dividers allows me to have separate drawers for different items, so I can get to them in seconds rather than having to look in totes and move supplies around like I did before.
When the table arrived, the top had a rough spot about the size of a dime on the top, and the top was slightly warped so all the cams couldn't secure the top. I contacted customer support and they shipped a new top, free of charge, no questions asked. The new top fit like a glove.
I would not hesitate recommending this cabinet to anyone. It is the perfect size for a working island, and I know I will get years of satisfaction from it!
One thing though (there's always 'one thing', isn't there?)... this sucker is HEAVY! It ships in 3 boxes and when put together it weighs about 215 pounds. Be sure you have a muscular friend to help, and if you can, either assemble it in the room it will live in, or measure your doors to make sure it will fit thru. Luckily I had a sliding door we could bring it in to finish assembling in my craft room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mother2two Very good purchase
The cabinet was very easy to assemble. I was able to put it together by myself, and I am not strong. The large flat file drawers are perfect for all of my sewing supplies. I was able to put all of my cutting mats away. The cabinet is large and has lots and lots of storage. It is really perfect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RNJSMOM1 Drawers Don't Fit Properly
Last year my husband bought me the hutch to 8 drawer cabinet for Christmas; with an IOU (out of stock) for the cabinet. After 9 months of waiting, I finally got the cabinet, to only be sadly disappointed. We spent 7 hours putting the cabinet together (husband is in construction), making sure we matched up every pre-drilled hole, only to discover after we had the cabinet built that only the two bottom drawers worked. None of the other drawers lined up and would close all the way. In addition, we had several pieces that had chipped paint, which we had decided we were willing to live with because it was such a monster to put together.
I called Home Depot to see if they would send someone out to adjust all the drawers. My husband thought that the company should go through the tedious task of adjusting each drawer; however, all they could offer us was to send out a pro out our expense. They called the manufacturer Home Decorators and they would do nothing. My options are to spend additional time taking apart and return to the store or they can try ordering replacement parts. Very disappointed in the quality of this mass produced item, I had such high hopes. I am also disappointed that the manufacturer does not stand by their product.
If you choose to buy this product, recommend that you inspect every single piece for chip paint before putting together. Unfortunately, you will not know if the drawers won't line up until you get it together. Good Luck!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David Extremely poor
I wanted to give this piece a zero but couldn't. Sure it's DIY, but the alignment of cams/bolts was off in many cases, the drawer framing was soft wood, and it took forever to get the basic frame of the cabinet together. Putting the drawers together was pretty easy but trying to get them into the tracks was awful. The two small left drawers were a good 3/16ths shy of fitting - I could get one side in but then the other side was shy of the track. Adjusting the screws that hold the hardware to the side of the drawers and adjusting the slides on the cabinet frame has been a nightmare and I am not sure what else I can do to make the drawers level. One other thing, the top of the cabinet came warped and could not be drawn down with the cams. Home Depot was great about getting another top shipped to us but it came warped too from the manufacturer. It was not as warped as the first one and the top fit all cams/ bolts except the two extreme right and left on the back edge. This has proven to be the worst furniture piece I have ever put together and I have 40+ years experience working in a theatre scenery shop. I wonder if Martha Stewart has ever assembled something in her various lines of furniture? Buyer beware.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smatoa1952 Wonderful capacity for artistic purposes!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Martha Stewart for being so picky! You must have demanded quality and we get to benefit from your requirements! Thank you for an excellent piece of furniture that is handsome and capable of holding so much! I'm so pleased with this piece that I now have two at home and will order another two for our winter home. They are quite elaborate to put together but well worth the effort and if the directions are followed EXACTLY, it all works out well. An affordable piece that is so very useful. If all of Martha's "craft" line is this well made and this well priced, I am an extremely happy camper! Also, it is finished on all sides!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SatisfiedCustomer Love this piece
After reading many reviews I had the courage and determination to tackle assembling this monstrosity by myself. Was able to do most of it alone and managed to follow the directions with only one small problem that I was able to rectify pretty easily. I thought that only two of the four upper drawers had dividers but I was pleased to have enough of the wood panels for all four! I love the size of this piece and it looks fabulous in my craft room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CraftMom225 Perfect for my needs
I won't pretend this cabinet is easy to assemble. You definitely need 2 people and several hours. A power screwdriver is pretty much essential. On the positive side, every piece was accurately marked, the holes were drilled properly and everything aligned perfectly. The instructions were detailed and accurate. Once it was assembled, the drawers all opened and closed easily. It's sturdy and looks great, too.
I needed a cabinet with large, shallow drawers to hold large sheets of paper (20 X 26) and standard 8.5 X 11 paper as well. This cabinet is perfect for my needs, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KAM Fantastic cabinet with large drawers.
This cabinet is huge. The drawers are so roomy and they pull all the way out. The top 4 drawers have nice dividers that can be arranged in different positions. It took some time to put this together, but it went together well. There is a large work area on the top. This is heavy, sturdy furniture.
