Love it! by: Denise from: Huntington Woods , MI on: February 16, 2016
This is a well made prep table. The wood is sturdy, the drawers are perfect.
It took my husband and me several hours to put together, but well worth it. The directions are very clear and easy to follow.

Beautiful kitchen island. by: Kenneth Ellsworth from: Odenton, MD on: July 1, 2014
This company by far has the best customer service. I know we will enjoy this product for years to come. If I need anything else for our home you better believe I will be using this company again.
Great looking piece and very happy with purchase by: Matthew Gordon from: Phoenix, AZ on: October 9, 2012
Very happy with my purchase, shipped quickly, arrived per shipping schedule in 3 separate boxes. The wood is high quality and looked great coming out of the box. Being so dry out here in AZ...I have needed to give it a heavy oiling once I assembled it but that is par for the course out here in Phoenix.
CON: the only con about my order is that the pan head machine screws that attach the handles to the drawers are too short. There are 4 total handles to the piece...3 of them caught the handle threads...and was so short, only took a 1/2 turn before there was no more room to tighten. The 4th handle couldn't even get a 1/2 turn as the screw didn't even reach the handle the threads so I had to make a special trip to the hardware store to get a 5/8" 8/32 screw package to complete the assembly...not a huge deal but considering the price of the piece...shouldn't happen.
Overall very happy with my purchase...thanks.
Beautiful but not very stable by: Lynda from: Evergreen, Co on: September 16, 2011
We love our island and use it daily...however, it took us several days to put together and when finished it was quite wobbly. I called the kind people at catskill and they sent me different set screws and so I took it all apart and redid with the new screws. It came out a little more stable, but not rock solid as I wished. It seems to be holding up very well. The wood is beautiful and we get lots of compliments on it.
Excellent Craftsmanship by: Tom Geisler from: North Conway, NH on: March 3, 2011
I bought the Grand Americana Model 1426 for additional work space and storage in my kitchen. The instructions were complete and clear although the number of pieces to the kit were intimidating at first. It was definitely a help to put all the different size screws and bastions, barrel nuts and set screws in separate containers. I only made 2 mistakes in assembly
Nice island, looks great, we like it. Need to keep it oiled. by: Richard Smith from: Ft. Collins, , CO on: October 12, 2010
We got it promply. Heavier than I imagined, but moveable in three boxes. Has mostly good directions. Takes a little fussing to get the fastens screwed in just right so the joint is tight. Was difficult to hold all the parts together when assembling the back panel. The drawer hardware could be heavier duty, say to hold 50 lb or so in the drawers. I couldn't tell where to place the drawer rails on the cabinet so had to move them all when discovered the drawers were too far back. Have to have a helper. It took us 5 hours. We're older but pretty experienced.
Great Island, Great Price! by: Ken Foster from: Camden, ME on: April 29, 2010
I'm very happy with this Island. It's a great mix of open and closed storage and clean lines and works perfectly in my kitchen. On the down side, the assembly was more difficult than I thought it was going to be. One reviewer said it took them 90 minutes. I'm a pretty handy person and it took me nearly 3 hours. The fastening system is not as elegant as other systems I've come across and I wonder how it will hold up over time but so far so good. At the end of the assembly my hands were hurting from the effort I had to exert to get the joints tight. The directions were great though. Good diagrams, easy to understand writing and some well placed warnings about mistakes to avoid. Also, the finish is ok but I'll probably do something different. Bottom line is it's a well designed, well crafted Island with clean lines and I love it.
