This is a beautiful piece but as many other reviewers stated, it is complicated to assemble. I have put together many pieces of furniture without any difficulty. But I left this one was sitting in the box and my husband accepted the challenge. It took over an hour not counting two trips to the hardware store to get screws, because they were missing. The piece is unfinished and the top required quite a bit of fine sanding to smooth it out before applying oil. But the wood is really pretty. I had measured before buying, but having it set up in the kitchen, it is smaller than I had thought. I like the versatility of the drop leaves. I can use one, both or none, depending on what I am doing. That drawer is pretty small and kind of rickety and it could really use an additional shelf inside the cabinet. But overall, I am happy with the quality of this cart and how it looks in my kitchen.
I would not recommend this product for someone who has no experience with putting together this type of furniture. The instructions were not great and neither was the video explanation. I would strongly recommend that Catskill redo their video so that the instructor does not put his hands in front of the camera thus not allowing the viewer to see what he is doing. None of the parts were labeled so it took some work to know what part was being referred to. That being said, once we finally got the kitchen cart together, it was very nice. We love the cart and it is serving the purpose we wanted it for. The kit was missing two plugs that go over the screw holes and the company sent them immediately after we requested them.

Solid table mostly of real wood. The parts not labeled so took some time to sort out. Hardware labels different from actual packets provided. Missing hardware replaced quickly with one call to company.
The quality of this piece is amazing. All pieces...

The quality of this piece is amazing. All pieces are solid wood and very heavy. The price was great as well. The downside is that you have to completely assemble it - drawer and all! 1) great quality wood 2) be prepared for major assembly 3) great for small spaces. We applied danish oil to it which really brought out the beautiful wood grain in this piece
