Bench top turned butcher block

i am using this "Bench top" as a butcher block in my newly-created outdoor kitchen. Quality is excellent, shipping was fast and efficient and the look is worth 3x what I paid for it!

Branded with a 1-800 number

Seems to be a good quality countertop so far. We love it. The only problem I have to complain about so far is that the Global Industrial logo and 1-800 number was branded on the side around 1/16 inch deep, or so.... not exactly a desirable feature for a kitchen island... so I sanded it off. The divot created by the sanded doesn't appear noticeable. It's something I'd rather not have dealt with. Other than that, not a bad product.

Fantastic service

Your review: I am quite pleased with the top. We used it to replace the top on a kitchen island that had some kind of galvanized tin which had come loose and was rusting. This was a perfect choice beautiful top and very well sanded. I now have a new kitchen island!!

Pros: Excellent workmanship on the wood. Easy to seal and finish off with a beeswax product especially for butcher block. Will buy again if I need another.

Cons: None

great product!

Your review: I was very please with delivery time, the quality of the slab and the price! Can't beat it - it literally was the cost of what I was going to pay from shipping alone from a well advertised company

kitchen island top

Your review: Even though the kitchen island isn't here yet, the top arrived rapidly and in perfect condition. Delivery man brought it inside because it was very heavy! Don't mind the one Global ID on the side - it'll be cut off the finished piece. Lightly sanded and applied 'mystery oil' twice so it's ready for cutting to size & install. The wood goes perfectly with my granite. One of my better (price) finds for the completely redesigned kitchen! Couldn't be more pleased. My carpenter was very impressed with the wood grade and price, too. Thanks Global!

Pros: Overall visual impact is great.

Cons: Con perhaps re-applying oil repeatedly; however, had butcher block before so knew the pros and cons of care before I purchased. It's worth the care, though.

If I Could Give 10 Stars I Would

Your review: I had a kitchen cart I was using as an island. I didn't like the top because the work space was not big enough. Getting this was a big decision because if it didn't work, I'd be stuck with it and out the money. SO GLAD I GOT IT!!! I put it on a barrel outside and took a palm sander to the edges and corners. I cleaned it up, moved it into the kitchen, oiled it with Boos Mystery Oil for a couple of days then followed with butcher block wax. I maintain it every month and make sure to not set anything hot or wet on it. I NEVER chop directly on it. It was the best price from Global, even with delivery. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

Pros: Perfect Size (comes in multiple sizes), Perfect Thickness, Well Made, Attractive, Easy to Maintain, Portable

Cons: No cons WELL WORTH THE MONEY

Maple Top

Your review: Very good Product. Flat and square and good looking. Will love the counter tops for years.

Pros: Product is very good. They resent replacement for the damaged goods with a better shipper

Cons: Shipped UPS. All were damaged. 3 of 4 were too damaged. Had to spend a whole day in taking pictures, up loading and emailing for proof of damage. Then negogiating for new tops.

Quality and Value

Your review: I bought this to replace the cheap builder counter top for my kitchen island. I looked around for months but could not find anything that would fit the dimensions of the island. And the cost was beyond my budget. This fit the bill literally. It's a Boos Board so you know it's quality. It had a gash on one side but the other side was perfect. Global also branded one of the edges with their logo so that had to be sanded. After sanding the good side, using a router to put a pencil edge on the top portion and finally sealing it with Waterlox Original, it looks amazing. Lastly, shipping was super fast. From Georgia to Texas in two days! Three days total from order to receipt. Awesome service! Don't hesitate to buy.

Pros: Great quality maple John Boos Amazing value Super fast order to receipt turnaround

Cons: Gash on one side but didnt cause an issue in my case Branded on one side with logo but sanded off

work bench used in Kitchen

Your review: It arrived a bit beat up on the edges by UPS, but since I was going to cut it to size that didn't matter to me. Cut to size rounded edges and it makes a very nice butch block in my kitchen island.

Pros: price.. did I say Price!

Cons: Its made of paint grade soft maple. Great material to work with and an beautiful wood, but if varying colors and shades don't work for you avoid this. it has a few flaws that were all on one side so I could hide them.

Beautiful table top

Your review: If you want a butcher block counter or table top, this belongs around your kitchen area. It's far to beautiful to sit in a shop or basement. The picture does not do this justice.

Excellent Product, Outstanding Price

Your review: My wife does A LOT of baking, so when we remodeled the kitchen I added a 45” butcher-block section into the granite countertop. There was enough waste from the 48” block to add a 4” back splash. Although it is described as for a workbench, it is of more than suitable quality for a kitchen butcher block. It is unfinished, so it can be oiled with butcher-block oil for food use. Some light sanding smoothed it up nicely. We are very happy with the results and the price was considerably less than buying one from a food service or Boos Block. It turned out to be Boos Block.

Pros: - Very few blended grain (butt joints) Well done joints - Price - Little sanding needed - Clean and unfinished

Cons: None for my project

Very pleased

Your review: Great top for price. I used it for a kitchen island.

Pros: Very good quality. I ordered it on a Thursday and got it the following Monday and shipping costs were Very reasonable for a 70 lb. package!!

Cons: One area of the top needed additional sanding and I had to plane the Global Ind. stamp off the edge as I used it for an island.

good top

Your review: For the price this is a good butcher block top. It is good hard maple. The only issues were some dings and indentations in the top so it is not a completely smooth surface.

Pros: price

Cons: some minor damage to the top

maple countertop

Your review: I found your workbench tops when doing the design for my kitchen remodel and was reluctant to spend $6000-13000 for items labeled for 'kitchen use'-- I did all of the countertops and 6 above counter shelves and a drop leaf for $2500 and extremely pleased with the quality--my contractor and project foreman were likewise impressed with the quality and price-thank you for offering a great product to the public at an affordable price

Pros: attractive/durable/foodsafe

Cons: haven't found any yet

Great price and shipping, nice looking top

Your review: I purchased this top for an extension to my kitchen countertop after reviewing a variety of budget butcher block options (big box store, big flooring store, big scandinavian furniture store, etc). The price for this top is unbeatable, and shipping costs were very fair. It arrived well-wrapped and in great shape. It has full-length pieces of wood instead of shorter pieces joined together end-to-end, which was a pleasant surprise. It is a bit lighter than I thought it would be, but it is a nice color and has good variation between light and dark. It does have "Global Industrial" branded on one edge, but that edge is against the wall in my home so it doesn't bother me - if we were using it in a way that allowed a 360 degree view of the top, it might cheapen the look. Overall, I'm really please with this top and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a sturdy butcher block counter option but unwilling to break the bank on it.

Pros: -Full-length strips of wood joined together -Interesting color variation -Fair, fast and careful shipping

Cons: -Global Industrial brand on one long narrow edge

Answer This Question

I recently purchased this product and did notice the fact that it has a mineral oil finish and has to be oiled on both sides at least every month. My question is can I apply several coats of a sealer to completely seal the wood so I wont have to do the oiling. Since this is a workbench top, oil would really mess up any wood project that you might be working on.

Answer This Question

I was about ready to install this top on a assembly table I made and noticed that the top is warped. The long length is convex slightly. How would you recommend I try to correct this since I can't use it as an assembly top unless it is dead flat. I thought of trying to sand it and even gluing a sandwich of MDF or plywood on the top and bottom. It would ruin the beautiful look of the top but I need something that is flat. Any suggestions?
