Too Good by: Rick Norton from: St. Augustine, FL on: April 4, 2016
I bought a small 18" counter top to cover a small add-on cabinet and my wife liked it so much she wants to do all the counter tops to match.

OK But the finish was not as nice as I expected by: Scott Schifter from: Alexandria, VA on: May 9, 2013
We were disappointed in the finish, it needed a lot of sanding and oil treatment to be usable.

I love the look the wood counter tops give to my kitchen. I have them either side of the oven on 12x24 white cabinets.I'm a first time shopper at kitchensource
Just what I wanted by: Arthur from: Tucson, AZ on: March 15, 2013
Although it took a little longer to get here (CT to AZ) than I anticipated, that is probably my fault for not reading all the description. The top was larger than I needed but the 1/2 inch test cut on a table saw provided a nice back piece. The 3 1/2 inch remaining cut when sectioned and glued together makes a great cutting board for a friend. I am very happy with my purchase.
(2) 12x25" Oak Varnique pcs. by: Amanda from: Louisville, KY on: January 9, 2013
I was impressed with the turn around time, especially since I ordered in Dec.
They came packaged very well and have a great look to them. Glad I got the Varnique finish. I was a bit disappointed that there isn't a Boos logo anywhere on these pieces, makes me think it's not really Boos.

Product came was shipped quicker than expected and is exactly what I was looking for. Excellent service.
very nice by: Lori from: Carrington, ND on: March 14, 2011
Bought a small cupboard and wanted a butcher block top, this fits the bill very nicely. Would reccommend it to others.
I currently have a small kitchen island that is 28" wide and 18" deep. It is too small for our purposes. We would like one of your counter tops that measures 36" by 25" to place on top of our current island. Will the weight alone suffice for keeping it in place and should the corners be rounded to avoid injury if someone bumps into the corner. Thanks for your help. - Asked about product JB-OKTBL04-O
The edges are eased so they aren't sharp, but we are not able to offer any additional radius edging. If your layout includes any overhangs, overhangs of 8" and greater will require additional support corbels or brackets at least every 24 inches.

Can you tell me the difference between the oil and varnique finish? Is the varnique more durable/require less maintenance?
Thank you - Asked about product JB-OKTBL09A-V
Varnique finished tops cannot be cut on while, Oil finished tops are extremely durable work surfaces that allow you to prepare & cut food directly on the surface however they require regular oiling.
