InterMetroÂ® Butcher Block Top
This top is the perfect finish for the InterMetro shelving system. When I moved my office into my home, I had to adapt a second bedroom and searched in vain for bookshelves that weren't a) made of particle board; b) huge; c) built-in or d) downright ugly. The InterMetro system was the answer, and I keep reference books as well as files stored neatly on these lightweight but sturdy shelves.
But what really completes the system is the butcher block top. It's beautifully made and easy to maintain, and the rich wood is a great accent for the wire shelving.

Couldn't Live Without It
The InterMetro Butcher Block Top (and the shelving to go with it, including one wine rack shelf) was the perfect solution to my open kitchen need for extra storage that was sturdy enough to hold my big Cuisinart toaster, large wok, and KitchenAid mix-master, looked good, and was easily within my budget. All wins! No loses! My kind of purchase!

Love my Extra Prep Space
We wanted to spruce up our kitchen, which needed some more shelving and prep space. It was built in the 50s and has custom cabinets--so it was either start over with cabinets not as nice or add something that did not match if we wanted more space to work. However, this block top (along with the custom table we made) was a great solution. It was not very expensive, but it is a great quality, and it added some extra storage and food prep area. The other great thing is that it complements the existing counters and cabinets, so I didn't have to replace everything or go through the headache of matching up new ones. A store associate helped me build the perfect table, gathered all of my components, and gave me directions on how to put it together. It couldn't have been easier, and the kitchen looks great!
