2 of the 4 wheels have "wheel locks".

They are all 4 360% swivel wheels, locking 2 keeps the island somewhat in place.

Be sure and mount them properly (one on each side, opposite corners).

It comes un-assembled so all you would have to do is remove the hinges from the one side of the top and as for the towel bars, I do not have mine on:)

Yes.

The fold up leaf and towel rack handle sections are both attached when you assemble the item.

You could omit them without any structural repercussions.

Yes, the leaf hinges can be taken off and drop leaf part or leave the drop leaf down if you want to keep it attached. The towel bar was not attached upon arrival but in the kitchen I put ours on to hang a towel for convenience.

Yes, part of the assembly is putting the hinges on to the leaf. It may look a little odd w/o the leaf though. There is a hole in the side of the top of the right panel but I'm sure you could decorate it somehow to fix this.

It's a butcher block look, but it's just plain wood with a thin veneer covering. You could probably cut on it, but not hard items.

Yes but I would still use a separate cutting board.

The wood looks to be pressed wood..you could probably cut meat on it but then you'd ruin the asthetics of it.....buy a cutting board.

answer 4
the wood is pine. As long as you have treated it like you would any other butcher block or wood cutting board, then you can use it for whatever you cut, as long as you clean/disinfect afterwards.
answered 1 year ago
By
winwithrose
answer 5
the top IS butcher block wood, but it is not sealed - so I would not advise cutting meat on it unless you seal it well. Like any unsealed wood, blood and bacteria cannot be washed out of slice marks that would be made.
answered 1 year ago
By
Careful00001111
answer 6
The type of wood used is called rubber wood.
We do not recomend cutting meat directly on it as the top may become damaged over time.
