InterMetro Butcher Block Top is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from What you See is NOT what you get Butcher Block Top for Intermetro shelving is really misleading. It doesn't look at all like the photograph. So disappointing. I would not recommend the butcher block top to anyone because it is not what you see online. It doesn't have the stripes of wood tones as shown in the picture on the website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product 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!

Community Q&A

Does the Butcher Block sit on top of the shelves itself, or does it require a separately purchased shelf to sit on top of?

Asked by: Incomplete
It fits right into the top shelf so works as a wood shelf or counter top.

Is there a Butcher Block Top that can be used on the 18" x 24" Metro Commercial Shelf with cut-out contoured corners?

Asked by: DesigningMyOwn
For 18" x 24" Metro Commercial or InterMetro Shelving solutions, we offer a routed Butcher Block Top that rests directly on the Poles, not on a Shelf. (A link is provided below.)

Is this surface heat safe fot small kitchen appliances like air fryers, convection ovens and toaster ovens to be used while on top of it?

Asked by: BKA99
This is fine for appliances to sit on, but things like hot pots should not be placed directly on the surface.

Other sizes available?

Is this product offered for the 24" deep shelves? I am looking for 24"x48".
Asked by: kwdevine
We offer the InterMetro® Butcher Block Top to fit the 14" x 36" and 18" x 24" Shelving units. We do not offer it in a 24" x 48" size as we do not offer any shelves in that size.

How much does it weigh?

I wish they had posted the weight of the butcher block. I will be sitting a flat screen TV 43" on the top shelf. (with the butcher block underneath the TV).
Asked by: SBeckas
Our InterMetro Butcher Block Top weighs 10.9 pounds. Although the weight of an object does not directly influence the weight capacity of that object, but our InterMetro Butcher Block Top is more than adequate to support a 19 to 23 pound flat screen television.
