Classic Country Prep Table
Christine from California
This is a nice sturdy prep table. The top is a beautiful wood top. The only disappointing thing about it is the sheving underneath is kind of rough. It seems like it should be smooth, but it's not. But I really like the table over all.
Great addition to our kitchen

Heritage Classic Country Prep Table
Carolyn from California
This table is great! it was really easy to put together and everything! There was only one problem with it, the wicker baskets on the bottom are tough to pull out, and when you do they tear up the bottom of the basket. So there needs to be like a wire rack that goes on the bottom so the baskets don't tear up

I love this table. I have so much room to prep my meals now. Its great being able to prepare dough right on the surface. It looks great in my kitchen and is nice and sturdy - no shaking when youre rolling out dough. Ive been wanting a Boos block table for a long time and this site had the best price.
The blacksmith used a sycamore tree placed on three legs to straighten horseshoes. The wooden block absorbed the shock of the smith's hammer. When the butcher saw the block where the anvil was resting, he realized he could use one in his meat market. So John Boos made him one and the rest is history. In the early days the butcher blocks were built for commercial meat markets. At the turn of the century meat purchased at the local market was not refrigerated or frozen, but hung.
