Review Star Ratingsexcellent
by: Kathryn Smoke   Verified Buyer      from: Hilton Head Island, SC      on: February 3, 2020
 No way can you beat this working kitchen island. I replaced a larger 2010 model Boos Block that was great as well but just was too big. I it came in the kitchen when we purchased the house) It went together easily enough . The one this replaced had a urethane sealer on the top and this one is an open edge. I ordered the oil and wax.... easily applied and the "look" is worth keeping this oiled monthly. Well made, excellent product made here in the USA.

Review Star RatingsGreat piece of furniture
by: Moyer   Verified Buyer      from: Grover Beach, Ca      on: September 24, 2019
 Can't be more pleased with this butcher block table. The cherry wood top is gorgeous and the black base makes a great contrast. Assembly was easy but you must follow the instructions and rub soap on the large screws before trying to tighten them. Looks better in our kitchen than we even imagined. Would definitely recommend this even if kind of pricey. Should last a lifetime.

 Our John Boos butcher block table is a beautiful addition to our kitchen. It's gorgeous and we just love it. It's very well made and was delivered ahead of schedule. The customer service rep was so nice when I made a change to the top -- from maple to cherry-- at the last minute. Love it!!!!

Review Star RatingsHow Did I Live Without
by: Pamala Murawski     from: Wolf Point, MT      on: January 16, 2012
 I placed my order just days before Christmas which delayed my 48” Butcher Block from being shipped out quickly, but I'm glad I didn’t wait since the item went up $100 after the New Year. Once it was shipped, it took just two days to reach me which was amazing considering I live 450 miles from a major town or city: there is no such thing as overnight shipping for us. Now that I have it, I don’t know how I lived without it. When I bake bread, I use very little flour to keep my dough from sticking when kneading. When cutting vegetables, I have enough room to cut several items and place them in their own pile instead of cutting one, then scooping it up, and then placing it in a bowl to set aside. I can go on, but I think these two examples give you an idea of what an outstanding block John Boos makes. Lastly, it’s a gorgeous a piece of furniture. It really looks beautiful after it has been oiled.

Review Star RatingsSimply beautiful
by: Barbara Manzi     from: Weeki Wachee, Fl      on: November 10, 2011
  I ordered my Boos bucher block Iland A week ago and I received it early. I'm delighted with the delivery service and the quailty of the John Boos Iland is gorgeous. What a statement in my kitchen, Thank you for a well made prouduct. One thing it comes with a small sample of board cream to seal the top, the company should have send four little envelopes to seal it right. I would have been happy to purchase it at the time of order. I love it.

Review Star Ratings...

 I wanted a kitchen island but didn't have the space for a full sized island and as I had purchased a large sized Boos cutting board a few years back I knew the quality was very good. After searching on the internet I ended up buying the Boos American Cherry La Rustica with shelf. It's heavy 4" Boos Block top and it's design fit my space perfectly. It's a nice piece of furniture and the only reason I gave it 4(and one half) stars is that it's a little pricey ... but you'd be hard pressed to find a better quality piece.

Ask a questionWhat's the difference between a work table, a butcher block table,   - Asked about product JB-KI10217
 AnswerEveryone uses different names for the same item. I generally think of a work table as a Stainless Steel top and shelf, but some people consider our wood top tables as work tables also. Butcher block is how most people refer to our wood top tables, but they are specifically usually constructed from thick hardwood strips glued together in an end-grain configuration, and resist knife nicks and have a multidimensional look.

Ask a questionI like the top on the smaller cart the shading of the maple is variegated. I like the light and dark. Can I get that top for the larger cart?   - Asked about product JB-KI10217
 AnswerAll Cherry end grain tops have color variation, some a lot more than others. It is just the way the lumber comes through. Each one is unique and different from another.
