This Solid Beechwood Butcher Block Kitchen Cart has some features: Cart has beechwood construction with lower side plywood back panels and drawer base,Cart has 1 cupboard,Cart has 1 drawer1 shelf,Two drop leaf counter tops,Casters Specifications: Overall dimensions: 33.25″ H x 45″ W 20″ D, Dimensions without drop-leaf: 25.55W x33.25″H x 20″D, Drawer dimension: 3.7″H x 16″W x 14.3″D.
The kitchen cart legs and top are made of solid wood, and as I mentioned, the handles are a classy, elegant brushed metal. One word of caution as to assembly: when you hammer in the wheels, don’t let the exhilaration of finally rounding that last assemblage curve steal your focus.It is both beautiful and functional; the outside leaves are a cinch to pull up, and designed well so that they stay up, stay completely steady, and are able to hold considerable weight.
The drawer and small cabinet beneath have been extremely useful, as is the open space between the top and the cabinets. The hardware is surprisingly nice, and the little towel rack on the back is handy. It looks much more expensive than it is. Now, for the down-side. It comes with a couple of pages that must be deciphered, but, if taken slowly, and patiently, can be figured out. It absolutely takes two people to assemble it, and even then it can feel like acrobatics at a few points. Hurry up guys because the manufacturer gives Discount Sale Today. These special deals don’t last long.
Still, despite the 45 minutes or so of figuring the pictures out and a few circus moves, it was all more than worth it. (If I would have thought of it at the time, I would have put easy to follow directions online, and it may not be too late.) Once again, though, I will say that the short time of frustration was nothing against the pleasure and usefulness this product has provided.
This is a good buy, and has been both a life saver and an esthetic improvement for our kitchen. Prepare a delicious meal with the Kitchen Cart. I recommend it highly!
