Was a bit concerned that the piece might be damaged in shipping or contain a defect or issue with live edge - but I unpacked it in store prior to loading it in my vehicle - it exceeded my expectations and am completely satisfied with how it looks and functions in my kitchen - worth the price !

Just got it and a little underwhelmed. I know there will be variations from one piece to the next but it looks nothing like the picture. It’s much darker- and the end piece doesn’t seem to match the rest. I wish you could see an actual picture of what you’re getting before you order. Either that or have more examples than the one.
Quality wise it seems well made. Love the live edge. It had a pretty strong chemical smell when we first got it but it has dissipated after about a day.
It took less than a week to arrive at my Home Depot store.
Was very well packaged, double cardboard. Nice finish and well manufactured. Easy to machine with circular saw for trimming to size and cutting out for stovetop.
I will not hesitate to order for the next product.

Kitchen island turned out great. Counter top arrived in great condition and was easy to cut to desired length. Small amount of sanding on the cut end, small amount of butcher block oil and it matched the other end nicely.

One of the live edges had a visible crack that was glued in. Some other imperfections in the middle that were filled in. Not sure if this is what is expected from a live edge. Was a 4 piece glued together so the imperfections were a little hard to accept. But other than that it was good. You could get lucky but because it was such a heavy item we regretted getting it online without seeing in store. Almost kept it but would have been unhappy. The return was painless though. I repacked it and UPS came to pick up.
We wanted to love it, but the finish was very poor. There were shiny spots in the finish and blotchy areas in the grain. Looked as if it needed more sanding done before being sent out. Being the focal point as a kitchen island, it was not up to par. Packaging was excellent though. Sadly, we returned it.
So happy! The wood is perfect, nice tone and grain, brings the soft touch of nature to our home. I had been looking for "the one" for 10 years and I have it now. Service is amazing great!, so impressive. They answered and fixed our problem instantly, no question.

The top had to be modified from it's original size from when I originally saw it back in June, so it's a little smaller than I'd hoped... although Jake let me know about the spec changes. The wood is so beautiful, and I am very pleased. It took a while to get it, but it was worth the wait!
The wood is pretty but not a true “live edge” piece. They just did an irregular sanding job! Some quality issues. There were globs of glue at the seams. One seam separating slightly. Beware it’s heavy. Two people needed to move. Still I get compliments on the island top. It’s budget friendly.
