Boos Homestead Island is Beautiful! by: Janice Kielb from: Ann Arbor , MI on: February 18, 2013
We recently ordered the John Boos homestead island, with black base, sized 24" x 36". It required two strong people to move the parts, which weighed over 300 lbs. However, it was easy for two to assemble, and once assembled, it is beautiful! Well worth the price!
Great!! by: Don from: Gorham, NH on: December 7, 2009
It is exactly how it appears in the picture. It is so sturdy. It is perfect for our kitchen and now we finally have the extra counter space we needed. I would strongly recommend it to anyone. It is worth the money. Only surprise we had was that it does need to be put together and you need to make sure you have help doing it because it is very heavy, but that was only a minor problem. It is great!!!
