At the time of my purchase, it was available in both white and natural color. The actual look of the natural leaned more toward a very light oak finish, with the butcher block top being what I think of as natural.

Can i safely put my Microwave (50lbs) on top?

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 9 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.

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).

They have locks but you can still move it with the locks on. However, it makes it a little harder to move.

Unfortunately, no. The wheels have locking mechanisms but, like other reviewers have stated, they don't really work.

The extension part has a crude system of being raised. It is not practical to be switched. You would have to either keep it up all the time or down.
