I absolutely love my Catskill's Empire Kitchen Island. Make sure you buy some Food Grade mineral oil,(available at Home Depot) and oil all the pieces. It makes a big difference in enhancing the color of the wood.
Luckily I'm a patient person, because I had to have them send me parts twice. It came without directions, so I obtained a PDF online to check for parts. We were missing two parts plus the directions. Once my husband started assembling the island, he discovered another missing part, so I had to call a 2nd time for another part.
I was very happy with the slide out extension boards and the extremely large front drawer. I was so glad the extension board cleared my trash can, as I hadn't even thought of this before I ordered it.
Costumer service for requesting more parts is terrific. They take your info. and send the missing parts out. We received the parts in about one week each time. Poor packaging of the product was a surprise, and it's amazing there weren't more broken pieces.. Assembly was difficult as instructions were poorly written, but in the end, thanks to my handy husband, I am very satisfied with the product.
