Love the John Boos Butcher block. Great construction. Easy to put together and perfect size for my space.

We looked at a couple of big box stores but we're not impressed with the quality. I order this from Overstock.com because I knew I could easily return it if the quality was not what I expected. But they supplied an excellent product. The cart/island is so sturdy and looks so nice. The butcher block top is very impressive. My husband had it assembled in under 30 minutes.

We have been contemplating a butcher block type island for our kitchen. We have a small kitchen with limited counter space. This gives us another great and moveable work surface, PLUS it doesn't take up the entire kitchen. Assembly was easy but the top is heavy. After some months of use, 6+ months, it does have a bit of wiggle in the legs and we've tried tightening everything again. Still a great piece for our needs. I recommend an initial GENEROUS and regular treatment with a good quality butcher block oil especially if you intent to use the surface for cutting. I use one with lemon and orange oil and it keeps the top nice without absorbing any food odors.

I love my butcher block workcenter. It fits perfect in our new kitchen.

The garbage bowl in the middle is handy, and the butcher block just looks and feels great. The castor wheels and metal legs do make it look a bit cheap one opened, but for our kitchen that has to be updated anyways, it was probably the nicest looking thing in it! Shelves are great, nothing falls through. Only gripe would be that the hooks, once on, cannot be moved without taking the whole thing apart. Easy to assemble and wheels stay locked in place. Would recommend if you're looking for a different looking small island, instead of the usual square/rectangle ones. Also, the circle actually lets 3 people prep at once without getting in eachother's ways or someone feeling like they're short space.

Great size for a small kitchen and love that it moves around with its roller wheels. It is made with quality and solid wood. The company, Catskill replaced my top fast and with no difficulties when I explained a flaw with the butcher block top. I recommend watching video on your laptop on how to assemble the screws properly and on their web-site on how to care for the butcher block. Have patience on assembling this, it isn't too difficult and is worth the time. 😍

I'm very happy this unit. Even though it is not completely hardwood, (the side and back panels and shelves are laminated particle board), you'd never know to look at it. The rest is composed of various types of hardwood. Mine looks like a mix of cherry, oak and maple, and looks very similar to the photo. It is a handsome piece. As far as assembly, a couple of screw drivers and a hammer are all the tools required. I'm very handy and it took me about 2.5 hours to completely assemble. Just make sure to read through the entire directions at least once before starting. All of the screw packets are labeled and the ones used in each step are clearly listed, so make sure you use the right ones at each step. The company also has online assembly videos, which I found helpful as well. I only had one problem. A couple of holes in the back panel were drilled in the wrong place preventing assembly. I called Catskill Craftsmen and to their credit, they shipped the replacement part that day, no questions asked. Don't know how common these QA/QC problems occur, but I did read some other reviewers, that had similar problems. Sounded like the company also took care of their problems quickly. The top is exactly 24"x 17". Although the width in the specs say 25.25 that includes the towel bar. Wish I could have gotten the larger size, but we have limited space, so this one was perfect for us. They treat the unit with butcher block oil, but you can apply a permanent finish if desired. They include a pamphlet that explains the types of finishes you can use and which ones not to use, so read that info. before finishing. If you want to use the top surface as a cutting board then you have to periodically treat it with butcher block, as that is only thing that is food safe. Overall very satisfied with the purchase. I hope my review helps.

I love my butcher block.! Wasn't hard to assemble the couple things (only hard for me to LIFT it!!!) HAHA! But I'm very happy with it. Looks GREAT in my kitchen and everyone compliments and asks where I got it!

Quickly received the island. Great quality of the butcher-block top, legs, and drawers--but the side, shelf, and back panels are less than desirable (i.e. super thin).
Moving swiftly through your kitchen is essential if you want to prepare a gourmet meal on a schedule. Your kitchen is much more enjoyable when you can find every bowl and you have a clean surface for chopping, mixing and measuring.
