With some trepidation I ordered the Catskill Craftsman French Country Butcher Block. I needed it to fill a small space in my kitchen. I wanted something inexpensive that looked expensive. It looked good in the picture, so, depending on that and one good review, I took a chance. I received it yesterday and put it together in about 30 minutes. It's beautiful, it really is. Very heavy and the wood is glowing. Looks like quality, and looks like I paid much more. I would recommend it to anyone, no hesitation.
