Rated 5 out of 5Â by MFSM Super little work station
Love this little cabinet/work area. A little tough putting together, but after a while got the hang of it and it went together nicely. It's sturdy and useable for a bit of storage. Have frying pans and a large pot inside with some room left for more. The only disappointment was that the natural coloring of one of the front door panels made it look as though it had been stained, as if by a water leak. I think this panel should have been discarded at the factory. Who wants to stop a project like this in the middle by contacting the factory to get a replacement?. Because we are using it in our summer cabin, the spot is tolerable. Make sure you examine the visible areas before you put it together. Easier to replace before putting it together than after.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by mijcar Top is Extremely Soft Wood
I used this island (gently) maybe five times as a work surface. And already the wood in the top is starting to flake up and split. This butcher block already looks worse than cutting boards I have used for twenty years!
A surface like this is not just destined to quickly become ugly and/or fall apart; but it is also dangerous. Wood that splits and splinters so easily also absorbs bacteria like a sponge.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by THarrington Initial QC Lacking
Product arrived with 12 screws missing. Called Catskill and they shipped them out the same day via Priority Mail. Once I had all the parts, the cabinet went together pretty easily. Fit and finish are very good.
I guess the moral to this story is check your parts received against the parts list in the assembly manual as soon as it arrives and don't plan on putting it together the day it arrives.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Silverback Not built as well as expected
no bottom to unit, just a drop in shelf. The drawer is sloppy.
Wood is in good condition though, and product measurements are accurate. It will do the job.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by manper55 Not Worth It
Contrary to the review which prompted me to purchase this item, it is NOT solid wood. The side and back panels were veneered particle board. The back panel arrived damaged. Definitely NOT worth the money paid especially after shipping and taxes were added.
