    Well...I know the person who owns it but it wasn't as well-cared for as described. This teaches me that "great condition" is very variable. Great in whose eyes???

    Anyway, I decided that it was too much money for the condition as I could buy a brand new one of the same style for $100 more.

    And the more I thought about it, the more I thought the doors would be an irritant. So, now I'm looking at IKEA. They have free standing kitchen cabinets over which I can put a large countertop and still have storage. Or a couple of bookcases back to back over which I can put a counter or some such thing.

    Back to the drawing board. Thanks for the comments!

    when you are planning your room, have someone measure from your elbow to the floor while comfortably standing. A good cutting height is 6" below this and a good pressing height is 3" below. As long as you aren't "making do" like many of us are, go for comfort too. Have fun!

    Thanks Piney for the measurement.

    It spurred me to consider another alternative. Two deep 32" high bookcases back to back. My elbow measurement is 38"!! Couldn't be more perfect and less than half the price of the cabinet. And I can spring for a large cutting mat to go over the top. Plus lots of storage on the shelves.

    That sound like something I would love to own! I usually end up with all sorts of notions on top of cutting surface.
    Good luck on your choice.
