Before it was fashionable, Catskill Craftsmen began a process of reducing waste and conserving energy. In 1994, Catskill Craftsmen built a Wood Pellet Mill on site that processes all wood waste from manufacturing and converts it to wood pellets a great, low ash, low emission alternative fuel to heating oil. All sawdust, shavings and waste materials generated during the manufacturing process is converted into wood pellet fuel, and used to heat homes.
Catskill Craftsmen has become the nation s leading manufacturer of ready-to-assemble domestic hardwood kitchen islands, carts, and work-centers. Catskill Craftsmen manufactured items are made from naturally self-sustaining, non-endangered North American hardwoods, primarily Northern Yellow Birch. Lumber is purchased from area sawmills, then dried, manufactured, and packaged on site. All sawdust, shavings and waste materials generated during the manufacturing process is converted into wood pellet fuel, and used to heat homes. The Deep Storage Island features a solid butcher block top which is safe for food preparation. A convenient drawer and cabinet with an interior adjustable shelf offer an enormous amount of storage, not to mention the side shelves featured on both ends of the island. Locking wheels allow for mobility within the kitchen, or lock in place to provide a stationary work area. The top, legs, braces, drawer, doors and exterior shelves area all solid hardwood, while the side and back panels are warp-resistant veneer. Raised panel doors and drawer add a level of elegance to this functional island.
Customer reviewsPainful installation but pleased with the end result
Installation was a several day long project... box 1 arrived on a Friday which doesn t have enough pieces to get started... Box 2 arrived on Monday. We finally got around to the project on Tuesday night, but after unboxing realized the back panel was damaged on the corner from shipping. Returning through amazon would have been more of a hassle than it needed to be so I called the builder directly and left a message called after hours for a new piece. In the mean time, we get the rest of the pieces prepped and realized the front top brace was drilled incorrectly. So we put all the boards up and left it for resolution. The company calls me back the next morning and without hassle I explained the damaged error pieces and she ordered me new pieces and received Friday. Dehydration, getting sick, who knows what happened but I couldn t focus on instructions and left it to my husband. He ended up putting the side panels in upside down yea, there s a couple holes that show what s top and bottom , and got that straightened out. There is no bottom to the cabinet at all, but rather pegs that hold the bottom shelf in place. The handles for the doors are wiggly even though the screws are tightened. For our needs, we opted not to put most of the side shelves on, allowing a new garbage can to inset the cabinet nicely, and better storage for our water bottles on our less visible side. This option left us with 6 additional shelves I am going to get braces to mount 2 of the shelves for a backsplash on the top and am very happy with this as a solution Wood is dry shipping boxes were oil stained, just soaks up apt of oil will pick up mineral oil to help protect the unit. We had a larger dining table in this spot that was ultimately being used as storage I converted the garbage cabinet we had to a pantry and got this smaller than the table island and have a much better functioning kitchen now Couldn t be happier
