The solid wood base is available in several vibrant finishes to spice up any kitchen. The kitchen island is 30" deep by 36" high and is available in 48" or 60" widths.

drawers by: John Shatzer from: Nashville, TN on: August 6, 2012
Just a additional comment about the drawers. Although well-made on smooth slides, the overhang of the table top hides almost 1/2 of the drawer, making it easy to lose contents to the back. Not sure there are any remedies except telescoping glides, but it may become unstable. High quality through out as I noted on my original ratings.
good drawers! by: John Shatzer from: Nashville, TN on: July 30, 2012
Great places to store knives and other utensils to have them immediately handy for food prep. Slides were a little sticky at first but smoothed out when I added a light lubricant. We'll add an overhead pot rack for even more convenience. Failed to mention the voluminous two shelves of the table these were matched with the shelves. Fist shelf is for all our dishes and serving bowls/plates. just reach under and bring out the dinner plates. We are in love with our Boos!
Nothing better! by: John Shatzer from: Nashville, TN on: July 30, 2012
After struggling with inept shipping from Aero stainless steel table, we switched our focus (and additional dollars) to a Boos work table. It is substantial, easy to assemble and well-crafted. Hey anything from Illinois has got to be good! We will treat it with the beeswax/linseed oil but other wise we're not interested in keeping it pristine
Love it by: Andrea from: -, NJ on: May 23, 2012
I've only had this table for a few days but so far I'm loving it.
Pros: Sturdy, stable work surface, beautiful, good storage space (I got it in Alabaster white with 2 shelves.
Cons: Surface is sensitive to water - the care and keeping pamphlet stresses not to get it too wet, which seems impractical for a food working surface. It's 36" tall, so for anyone taller than me (5'8") it could be too short for working on.
Overall I LOVE it and love the way it looks in my kitchen. I look forward to many years of use.
