A butcher block is usually not the sort of item that I would order online, but this one got rave reviews so I gave it a chance. The two boxes that it arrived in were so heavy it took one of my kids and me to lug it inside. However, the assembly went very smoothly and it looks both very attractive, professional for a chef and substantial in the space. In fact, it accommodates two barstools and doubles as an occasional table. Very pleased with this purchase!

This was in my cart for a while, and I finally bought it - GREAT decision! Color, shape just as pictured and sized as stated. Is made in USA which is amazing. Comes in 2 boxes and is heavy. Easy to put together but tighten the bots to avoid squeaking legs. The leveling feet are fanstastic for my not-quite level tiles floor. The top is 3" thick and beautifully made. It had a few rough spots so I got some 150 sand paper and finsihed those out. I have put many many coats of boiled linseed oil to condition the wood and the table loves it! I have a very small kitchen and needed some extra counterspace; so this was the perfect solution. Only thing that would make it better would be if there was a shelf underneath (there is not one); but the towel bars are good. You won't be disappointed with this table.
We are using this as a butcher block, table, desk, and extra space when entertaining. It's perfect for all uses! It is beautiful and a substantial piece of wood. The assembly is very easy (simply attach 4 legs). It is heavy and my husband had to bring it in the house. Still very very pleased.
This table is just as pictured and as described. I am actually using as a microwave oven table and have room under it for a trash can. I am a small person but I managed to get it in my house and put together by myself...so anyone can!

If it is only three inches thick, is it sturdy enough to use a professional meat cleaver on?pnp7 on Aug 9, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello pnp7, this is not a professional, Chef's Butcher Block. It is designed as a patio or kitchen accent piece for cheese, breads, vegetables and appetizers. I hope this is helpful.

Can it be used outdoors? I am looking for an outdoor grill prepping table.ameetsn on May 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question ameetsn. Yes, it can be used outdoors, just don't leave it in the elements. Because, it is not made for outside purposes. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 6, 2014
