Love it!
by: DP     from: Queensbury, NY      on: February 27, 2017
 Arrive safely and quickly - beautiful - we love it!

by: Kevin Durkin     from: Orland Park, Il      on: October 4, 2016
 The counter came in perfect condition. It looks better than I expected, absolutely love the product.

The board looks amazing on the island base we built
by: Kim     from: Richmond, Va      on: July 15, 2016
 We ordered this with some concern that it might not be thick enough for the chunky island base we built (5" legs) but it is absolutely perfect. The board is beautiful, straight and square. Would highly recommend to others for an island use.

Wonderful product
by: Karen Bezou     from: metairie, Lo      on: June 6, 2016
 Wonderful product and customer service was excellent!

by: Gary     from: Greene, RI      on: April 11, 2016
 It came when promised. The quality is very good. I replaced the top of the island in our kitchen. The old island top was granite tile. It took maybe an hour to remove the old one and replace it with the new one. Best home project I ever did! (and I have done a LOT)

Excellent quality!
by: Maryanne. McCarthy     from: Bethesda, Md      on: March 23, 2016
 I ordered a 42" x 48" block for my kitchen island. I wanted to extend the seating area of my existing island. It is fantastic! I ordered the oiled version. It will require additional mineral oil but all blocks do. My previous one that I also purchased from kitchen source (11 years ago) held up fantastic. I moved that top to a different cart/table. Fantastic quality! I highly recommend it. It is 1 and 3/4 inch thick -solid and beautiful piece of maple.

Beautiful countertops
by: Mary Cureton     from: Wimberley, Tx      on: February 22, 2016
 Did my entire kitchen in these countertops, and love them. Always had granite in the past but wanted a warmer look this time. Varnique finish on the small one I purchased two years ago still perfect even with a lot of expect these will be the same. Love love love!

Very Nice
by: Craig     from: Danvers, MA      on: October 27, 2015
 Ordered 36 x 60 in w/Varnique finish for kitchen island. It looks great. Truck delivery was ok. I expected the top finished side to be more protected than just kraft paper and cardboard. No foam, padding or fibre board for extra protection from bumps and dents. It had no damage though. I am very pleased it really makes the kitchen.

by: Vickie Edwards     from: Sagle, Id      on: August 13, 2015
 Beautiful butcher block counter top. Very pleased with our purchase. Excellent quality with no defects. Also, came within 2 weeks of order. Overall, we could not be happier.

Great product!
by: Alan Viader     from: Yountville, CA      on: May 28, 2015
 Looks awesome and really dressed up the kitchen! Great quality overall.

GREAT desk top!
by: Johanna     from: Ramah, NM      on: March 20, 2015
 Beautiful piece of wood that is now my dream desk! Shipping was prompt. Great product. I would definitely buy this product again. But, it is heavy! I didn't realize that it weighed nearly 200lbs. Not all table legs can support this weight (as I learned).

Butcher Block
by: Boris     from: San Diego, CA      on: November 3, 2014

by: Aury Lozada     from: King of Prussia, Pa      on: April 4, 2014
 I ordered my John Boos Butcher-block Island Counter and when it arrived I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! It was absolutely beautiful!! I cannot wait to get it down to my shore place and have it installed. We will be enjoying many meals and conversations on that island!

 great looking

by: f andrews     from: san diego, ca      on: July 30, 2013
 very nice counter top everything I expected thank you

by: Amy     from: Minneapolis, MN      on: April 4, 2013
 Arrived very quickly, in good condition. Oil finish was a little dry but a new application of oil brightened it up easily.

by: JJW     from: SoCal, CA      on: July 23, 2012
 Recd. product in a very timely manner. It is as described, brand new. I can't wait to bolt it to the base and get going!

by: Earl and Jackie Graves     from: New Hamburg, NY      on: March 6, 2012
 The island was delivered to the door, exactly as pictured. It is beautiful and makes a great centerpiece for the kitchen.

Great product, quality is excellent. Delivery was slightly longer than anticipated but well worth the wait for the value!
by: Jack Burton     from: Louisville, KY      on: March 2, 2012
 Could not be happier with the quality fo the product. color, craftsmanship quality are all top notch especially for the value. The only downer was that the product took an extra week or so from delivery originally promised.

impressive workmanship
by: Gerald     from: Orinda, CA      on: January 20, 2012
  We ordered this maple butcher block 60/42 to be used as a table top for our kitchen to replace our 18 yr old oak top. We are so pleased with the quality, the look, the feel, and the workmanship of the top. It is exactly as it was presented and arrived well packaged and in perfect shape. Thank you to Kitchensource and to John Boos for doing excellent work. We will look to you for future needs.

Couldn't Be More Pleased!!!!
by: Jeff Shuster     from: Boonton, NJ      on: February 28, 2011
 The price and the product was excellent!!!! I couldn't be more happier with my John Boos butcher-block island top. Even my kitchen disigner was so impressed that he wanted the ordering info so he could buy from you too. Thanks again!!!

worth every $
by: Carol McCasland     from: Louisville, CO      on: October 29, 2009
 This is the second John Boos island top I've bought and this time I didn't even consider any other. It is so beautiful, durable, and adds to the beauty of my island. The quality is just unsurpassable. btw, the first island stayed with the house I sold. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants quality, beauty, and durability.

good value
by: joe cox     from: -, -      on: October 16, 2009
 the butcher block had one small 1"x4" darker area but since i was putting in a sink right there didn't matter The oil finish needs a lot of additional oil to be useable

We love it
by: Mel Strauss     from: Glastonbury , CT      on: June 3, 2009

Is the varnique a natural/clear varnish or a stained varnish?   - Asked about product JB-KCT16A-V
 Varnique is an attractive clear semi-gloss pre-catalyzed finish that is virtually maintenance free. It is impervious to most household chemicals. Cleans up easily with mild soap and water. Wipe dry. DO NOT cut into a Varnique finish butcher block. Cuts into the finish should be resealed immediately to prevent the exposed wood from absorbing moisture.
