Absolutely beautiful
by: Sheldon Lesire     from: Silverton, Or      on: September 5, 2018
 Kitchen Source made ordering this butcher block counter top very easy. They called to make sure my options were correct, and sent a few emails with detailed shipping instructions. I'm very pleased with the product and with the way Kitchen Source does business.

by: Nancy     from: McKinney, TX      on: November 26, 2017
 Excellent quality and easy installation.

by: Kevin Durkin     from: Orland Park, Il      on: February 27, 2017
 The counter came in perfect condition. It looks better than I expected, absolutely love the product.

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: October 4, 2016
 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.

Excellent quality!
by: Maryanne. McCarthy     from: Bethesda, Md      on: July 15, 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.

good value
by: joe cox     from: -, -      on: June 6, 2016
 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

impressive workmanship
by: Gerald     from: Orinda, CA      on: April 11, 2016
  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.

 Good quality, fast shipping, friendly service. Thank you.

by: JJW     from: SoCal, CA      on: August 13, 2015
 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!

GREAT desk top!
by: Johanna     from: Ramah, NM      on: May 28, 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).

Love it!
by: DP     from: Queensbury, NY      on: March 20, 2015
 Arrive safely and quickly - beautiful - we love it!

worth every $
by: Carol McCasland     from: Louisville, CO      on: October 22, 2014
 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.

Great product!
by: Alan Viader     from: Yountville, CA      on: July 14, 2014
 Looks awesome and really dressed up the kitchen! Great quality overall.

by: Amy     from: Minneapolis, MN      on: July 8, 2014
 Arrived very quickly, in good condition. Oil finish was a little dry but a new application of oil brightened it up easily.

very nice
by: jonathan batzer     from: greenwich, ct      on: April 4, 2014

by: Jeff Shuster     from: Boonton, NJ      on: March 3, 2014
 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!!!

Wonderful product
by: Karen Bezou     from: metairie, Lo      on: July 30, 2013
 Wonderful product and customer service was excellent!

by: Gary     from: Greene, RI      on: May 3, 2013
 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)

We love it
by: Mel Strauss     from: Glastonbury , CT      on: April 4, 2013
 This is a high quality top at a competitive price

Beautiful countertops
by: Mary Cureton     from: Wimberley, Tx      on: March 6, 2012
 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!

by: Vickie Edwards     from: Sagle, Id      on: March 2, 2012
 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.

36" X 97" John Boos Butch-block Island Top
by: Aury Lozada     from: King of Prussia, Pa      on: February 28, 2011
 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!

by: Earl and Jackie Graves     from: New Hamburg, NY      on: November 17, 2010
 The island was delivered to the door, exactly as pictured. It is beautiful and makes a great centerpiece for the kitchen.

Very Nice
by: Craig     from: Danvers, MA      on: September 28, 2010
 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.

Very pleased
by: Sarah     from: Cedar Rapids , IA      on: October 16, 2009
 Exactly what I wanted. Great quality at an amazing price. I have a beautiful new island top and couldn't be happier with this purchase from KitchenSource!

The board looks amazing on the island base we built
by: Kim     from: Richmond, Va      on: June 3, 2009
 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.

Your questions that we answered:
do you do under counter cut out and hole for faucet? Thanks   - Asked about product JB-KCT9748-O
 Unfortunately these tops are not customizable. You would need to alter it yourself. Please note any alterations will void the warranty.

Wanted to know how to actually measure for butcher block top. Do you measure cabinet from end to end or can there be a overhang? I have a laminate top right now and we have an overhang.   - Asked about product JB-KCT6042-O
 If you have an existing top, you would need to decide on the dimensions that work for you. Typically, countertops do have an overhand of about 1-1/2" around.

Two questions: 1. Can this countertop be purchased sanded and finish-ready, but without either oil or varnique? 2. Can you pay for expedited shipping? Thanks, Andrew   - Asked about product JB-KCT8442-O
 Yes, the item can be shipped with no finish, this however would void the warranty. The pricing would be the same as it is on the oil finish. The item cannot be expedited, it takes 2-3 weeks to be manufactured and shipped and then ships standard ground.
