I don't know what you mean by panel, but the towel bar uses screws to attach. If you don't attach, then you'll have little holes where the screws would go.

If those parts are not attached it will weaken the structural integrity of the unit.
They are required parts and all parts work in conjunction with one another.

answer 1
Is your microwave that heavy? I have mine on there, but I think it says nothing over 30lbs. It also says not to put any electronics on it. I don't know why, because the top is a solid butcher block.
answered 7 months ago
By
poovie
answer 2
The Warning sticker on the top says not to put any electrical appliances on it, and it has a weight limit on the top of 30 lbs. so probably not for the heavy microwave. I think they also make carts specifically for the microwave.

answer 2
You may have to pre-drill some holes. We think you could switch the top around pretty easily but if you wanted the towel holder on the right side you'd have to drill holes for that.

answer 3
No. You would have to redesign the whole thing. Do you need to put up the side? I really haven't used my side. I use mine against a wall with a microwave on top. The opposite side has the rack to hang a towel, but your biggest problem would be the bar that slides out to lift up the side leaf. I think you would be better off having someone make you one, if you were going to buy this, just to redesign it. Not sure if it can be done, anyway. Good luck!

answer 1
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.
answered 1 year, 3 months ago

HappyShopper52
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, 3 months 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, 3 months 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.
