John Boos BoosBlock Prep Table
Beautiful - best price!
Elizabeth from Auburn, MA– Verified Buyer
Island is beautifully made. All the parts fit perfect so assembly was a breeze. The island itself is beautiful, solid and lovely wood (we got natural). Best price at Wayfair!
Love our new island
Terry from Phoenix, AZ– Verified Buyer
Nice heavy weight island, we changed the shelf height, wanted to put appliances on one of the shelves. Easy to put together. Would recommend to anyone!
John Boos work table
Michelle Fines from United States– Verified Buyer
This work table was the best investment I ever made. I received my order 1 week before the date to be delivered. The price was the cheapest on any website. Very functional piece. Excellent quality.
Exactly as advertised
Ron Greenan from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
The table came in two weeks ahead of time and after about 20 minuites of assembly, found the table to be exactly as advertised. Easy assembly and the quality I was expecting. I would recomend that the directions mention that the two shelves are not exactly the same size and during assembly knowing the slightly smaller one should be on the bottom would be helpful. Great Job, Boos.
Tom Bennett from Menlo Park, CA– Verified Buyer
Hey, it is a Boos. You expect it to be great, right. It went together easily and perfectly. Very good design. Very stable.
Richard Steggerman from Providence, RI
Unfortunately, I cannot get the two better-matching legs on the same side unless I drill new holes. However, the table is quite beautiful, though very light-colored, and I am eager for some darkening with age. It was easy to assemble and everything fit together soundly.
Great build quality
John from Denver– Verified Buyer
Only comment is they should provide the oils needed to finish the seal before use.
Excellent Prep Table/Lots of storage
NC Cook from Chapel Hill, NC
I have very little counter space for preparing food. I purchased the table with the largest dimensions and it provides plenty of space for cookware on the two shelves. It is very sturdy/heavy and well made. Very easy to put together.
Judy from New York, NY
I bought this table to replace an ancient formica kitchen table purchased some 47 years ago! (Don't ask!). Im thrilled with it - it gives me much needed added "counter space" to work on and for storage. I did purchase the extra towel rack, but did not realize you need to drill holes to attach it-there was no indication of that. I have not attached the towel rack as it isn't absolutely necessary- I just thought it would be nice. I did add the drawer - you can never have enough in a kitchen!
Jopax from Tempe, AZ
Although it is quiet expensive (I kind of had to close my eyes to hit the [ORDER] button!) it's high quality and very attractive as a kitchen island (I have a gray schemed/contemporary kitchen). But I wish I would've ordered a wider one (I have the 60" by 24") because even though it seems big when you get the tape measure out, if you have a fairly large kitchen (mine's about 12' by 12') you'll wish you had a bigger one! Either way I love the look the 'butcher block' gives to my minimalistic style!!
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.
The company currently occupies approximately 150,000 sq.ft. of total production capacity in Effingham, IL and approximately 65,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing capacity in Philipsburg, PA and Suring, WI, which produce wooden school furniture. The company has four dry kilns that will dry up to 210,000 board feet of lumber on a continual basis. There are 140 employees in the Effingham facility. Most of the hardwoods used for manufacturing is shipped from Great Lakes states via truck, while their second largest commodity, stainless steel, comes from steel warehouses and distribution centers in Chicago, Indianapolis, and St.Louis. The company currently is cutting up about five million feet of maple and oak each year.
