elfa Butcher Block Tops
Don't buy the wrong thing!!
This butcher block top is awesome and certified food safe. Completely washable in hot soapy water and easily cared for. Be advised though, while building a custom kitchen cart out of cabinet-sized elfa, I then realized that butcher block does not come in cabinet sized. So I had to make a second trip. Whoops.

Restyled old black office filing cart
I had an old black Elfa filing cart, and I needed a cart with drawers and a top instead. I took off the bars that supported the files, bought two platinum mesh drawers for pencils and such, and added the butcher block top. I am THRILLED with the results. The platinum goes fine with the black, and the butcher block top is beautiful and looks fine next to my cherry wood desk and table. A real quality product.

I was quite surprised how heavy the butcher block was when I picked it up at the store. I guess I have gotten used to cheaper, softer woods. It is beautiful and I have no doubt it will give me many years of use.

My husband and I recently moved into a SMALL basement apartment. We needed to find creative uses of the space we have. We found this little unit that was just the right size for our bathroom, and the top is ALMOST at the same level as the sink. This gave us more drawer space as well as more counter space. I wasn't crazy about the idea of the drawers being somewhat open, but the mesh front and sides seem to camouflage the contents just fine. I'm very pleased with our choice, and would recommend it to anyone with similar needs.
