Fantastic Product by: Alice J Haslam from: Kingsland, TX on: November 5, 2015
This was my second order, for a friend who saw mine and has ordered an island made just like mine. I recently noticed that all the counter tops on the Master Chef TV programs are these Boos blocks. I absolutely love mine. I got both the Boos Oil and the Boos Cream to care for it.
Just what I wanted! by: Alice J Haslam from: Kingsland, TX on: October 8, 2015
I ordered this to serve as the top for a new island I am having installed in my kitchen. It is beautiful and the price was reasonable considering the delivery issues on something this heavy. I am very pleased.

I want to get a 72" hard rock maple counter top and cut it to go on each side of a drop in sink. What do I need to do to the ends I cut to seal them?
What is the difference between the two finishes you offer? Thank You - Asked about product JB-KCT08-o
John Boos recommend that you use the mystery oil or mineral oil (available at any local hardware store) to finish the sides that they cut. If it is going up next to a sink they would recommend that you apply a polyurethane to seal it and help to protect it more from the water that could come into contact with it and damage the item. Their oil finish is what they recommend if you are planning on using it to cut things on. If you are going to be using it as a surface that you will not be cutting on and you do not want to have to do the monthly maintenance then they would recommend the varnique finish.

Do we need to seal the oil finished countertops before installation? - Asked about product JB-KCT09A-o
Oil tops must be maintained with oil (John Boos oil or Mineral oil) once a month.
