Rated 5 out of 5Â by catlady4 Right size
I wanted more room in my kitchen and i got rid of my table but needed something for the cats to be able to see outside at the birds. This is perfect and solid. and the added space to put stuff on the shelves is good. Cats love it and sit up there a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by raeraeaz Just love it!
I purchased the InterMetro pieces to make a wine rack and included the butcher block top. I absolutely love the look and the new space I have in my kitchen. The pieces are very sturdy as well as good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Natty16 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!

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!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LoverOfPracticalThings Great part of a practical kitchen island
We needed a kitchen island that would be good for food prep (very little counter space in an NYC apt), storage, not to big, and movable. Intermetro let us design something that is all 4. We are so happy with this thing!
The Butcher Block top is great. Cleans easily, doesn't seem to have any stains or cracks, and we use it all the time. It's been almost 4 years and it's in great shape.
Here's the components of our kitchen island. (We are not handy people, but this was easy to put together.)
1. InterMetroÂ® Butcher Block Top - 13-1/4" x 35" x 7/8" h
2. Shelves 14" x 36" InterMetroÂ® Wire Shelf. In Black, it's 483015. We have 3, but you could probably get a 4th one in there if you wanted more shelf space.
3. 4 posts, 34-1/2" InterMetroÂ® Post. Black is 483030. 34 inches seems short, but when you add the caster wheels, its counter height.
4. Wheels - we have 2 caster wheels with brakes and two without. 3" InterMetroÂ® Caster w/ Brake is 483077
5. Canvas cover - we thought about this but didn't do it. We have young kids, but they don't grab everything as much as I thought they would. In fact, we keep plastic containers on the bottom, and when they are interested, it's kind of a nice distraction that keeps them busy. The fact that its on wheels has not been dangerous for the kids, but if we don't want it to move, locking the two wheels keeps it in place.
Overall, a great product, and I'd buy Intermetro shelving again.

I love this product! I was hoping it could come in a larger size that would fit the 18" x 48" shelving?? Or even come in a stainless steel top!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Editor Perfect finish
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.
