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.

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!
