Elfa Butcher Block Tops is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moving in 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this new top I have purchased Elfa components for several years. I was somewhat disappointed not to find the platinium top available this year but this butcher block top really looks sharp. The design of the top has also changed so that it fits over the frame components not just on top. A great choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa tower with Butcher Block Tops This product has been great. The tower is solid and the butcher block being solid stock is a perfect weight for the base to make the piece feel strong. The top also ages well naturally and gives it an authentic look and feel. Its contemporary meets traditional in the storage category.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dresses up the drawers I really like the butcher block on top of my shelving unit. I keep all my baking goodies in the drawers and my mixer on top - it really brings the unit in line with the rest of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Top I purchased the butcher block top for my white Elfa kitchen cart and it is absolutely gorgeous! I am very happy with it and the entire cart! This is my second cart. I have an older white cart with the white melanine top. They last forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ribbon storage I use these carts for my ribbon storage, I LOVE it! It makes seeing my ribbon so easy, I tend to use it more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Major Improvement I originally bought my elfa freestanding drawer units for craft & miscellaneous storage. I repurposed them for use in the counterless kitchen of my new rental. I switched out the original laminate tops for these, and now they look like they were made for the space! I do wish the frames fit more snuggly in the grooves -- the top slides around a bit when I move the wheeled cart. Even though I'd put down trivets, the wood did react to heat when I set down a cookie sheet from the oven. The marks (which where shaped like the trivets) seemed to go away pretty fast once I removed it, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and well made This cutting board is made with strips of wood. The curve of the grain alternates up and down with each strip, just as it should, to balance the natural curvatures of wood. Nice job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful The butcher block top is beautiful and functional. We used it as a top to a cart created to hold items for homework. I can pull it in the kitchen and work on it when I need it.

Community Q&A

How does this attach to the top of the shelving? My other tops sit on a shelf with cut-outs for the posts...

Asked by: DadDelzer
The butcher block top has a channel on the bottom that fits on top of the drawer units crossbars. It's not a completely tight fit as it's meant to also be moved to a counter top as needed.

Is this for food prep

Is there a butcher block top that would fit the medium cabinet-sized drawer units?

Asked by: mconcia

Will this work on a different brand of shelving?

I already own a 24" x 18" cart that looks exactly like the other brand, but I don't know what brand my cart is. Would this work on top of my cart? Would I be able to see a picture of the underside with measurements so that I can figure out if it would fit on top?
Asked by: vkw4
The underside of the Butcher Block Top features circular grooves that will cap Metro and InterMetro posts when installed. We don't have any photos of the underneath. So sorry!

Are there holes on the underside of this block?

Is this the butcher top with holes that fit on top of the metro poles? I have one several years old that has dipped in the center, and I think I should replace it. I can’t figure out a way to fix it. It still works, but the dip just bothers me because my two blocks aren’t flush anymore. Thank you.

Correct! The underside of the Butcher Block Top features circular grooves that will cap Metro and InterMetro posts when installed.

I intend to use this piece alone. Will it lay flat on a flat surface? Also, can it be trimmed?

Asked by: Centra
Yes, our Butcher Block Top does lay flat on any flat, stable surface. Like any genuine wood product, it can be trimmed, but we do not recommend this due to the likelihood that uneven edges or splintering may occur. If another size board is needed, consider our Elfa Butcher Block Tops.
