I adore this butcher block.! We use it as an island in our small kitchen and it is the PERFECT size. The quality is outstanding, BUT the shipping container could have been better -- the piece is very heavy. We received ours with a huge dent along the top edge of the block. There is a slight radius edge and we are handy with a sander so I did not complain to the company -- though if the aesthetics were a top priority I would have (and honestly I did consider it for a moment) but, I figured they would ask me to send it back and I was far too in love to let it go. So, I made peace with the corner chunk, calling it "character" (and facing that edge away from the high traffic side of the space) I would purchase another in a heartbeat (but ask for more shipping protection)
The butcher block arrived on time and packed very well. It assembled easily. Some people say the block was very heavy but it's not overly so. I'm 66 and was able to lift the top with moderate effort. I had always wanted an island in my kitchen but the kitchen is too small. This table is same height as my counters and was able to set it right next to the range top forming a little L space. It's close to the stove for chopping and putting food into pots and frypans and company can sit on a stool at the table and keep me company while I cook. Love it! I oiled it with the same material I use on my salad bowl which makes it very rich looking. Decided it was too pretty to actually chop on so I'm using a light weight cutting board to keep the table looking nice.
I bought this to replace a table in a smaller kitchen. It looks great and I get comments on it all the time. Very easy to put together, I sanded the top smooth and added butcher block oil and it looks and feels magnificent. The price is also very nice!
I am incredibly happy with this table. The quality is top notch. The wood is beautiful! It was packaged carefully, and came with very clear assembly instructions. Putting it together took less than ten minutes. The table looks as good in real life as it does in the website photos. I am extremely happy with this purchase!
