About the Manufacturer

John Boos & Co. is the oldest industry in Effingham, Illinois. It has been in business continuously since 1887. Conrad Boos Sr. founded the business in 1887 and named it for his son, John. For many years he worked out of the blacksmith shop, which was located at what is now 406 West Jefferson Street in Effingham, Illinois. The wood for his blocks was cut in wooded areas surrounding Effingham and was mostly sycamore lumber. The lumber was processed in his sawmill and sent to his shop for finishing. The plant operated from a blacksmith shop until 1892 and then it moved across town, and began producing the blocks as we know them now.

The blacksmith used a sycamore tree placed on three legs to straighten horseshoes. The wooden block absorbed the shock of the smith's hammer. When the butcher saw the block where the anvil was resting, he realized he could use one in his meat market. So John Boos made him one and the rest is history. In the early days the butcher blocks were built for commercial meat markets. At the turn of the century meat purchased at the local market was not refrigerated or frozen, but hung.

Facilities

The company currently occupies approximately 150,000 sq.ft. of total production capacity in Effingham, IL and approximately 65,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing capacity in Philipsburg, PA and Suring, WI, which produce wooden school furniture. The company has four dry kilns that will dry up to 210,000 board feet of lumber on a continual basis. There are 140 employees in the Effingham facility. Most of the hardwoods used for manufacturing is shipped from Great Lakes states via truck, while their second largest commodity, stainless steel, comes from steel warehouses and distribution centers in Chicago, Indianapolis, and St.Louis. The company currently is cutting up about five million feet of maple and oak each year.

Current Products & Markets

The wood and metal products are listed with the National Sanitation Foundation, the leader in sanitation agencies for approving equipment to be installed in foodservice and supermarket operations. The products must have approval of various sanitation agencies in order to be accepted by the industry. The stainless steel product group, which continues to expand, now includes stainless steel sinks, shelves, carts, etc. One of the outgrowths of their stainless steel plant and our wood plant is the new Cucina series of foodservice carts made from northern hard rock maple and foodservice grade stainless steel. The product has received instant acceptance from professional, as well as domestic chefs throughout North America. Sales are made through major gourmet catalog companies, as well as foodservice equipment dealers. Mixing the two materials provides John Boos & Co. with a competitive edge as the manufacturing begins and ends in Effingham, IL.

Style

The American Heritage Kitchen Island with Butcher Block Top is a Rustic style product. Rustic style uses a warm nature-inspired color palette: whites, browns, blacks, grays, and tans. Hints of green, orange, and red can be found as accent colors. Incorporating natural materials, such as wood, stone, leather, sisal, wool, clay, and various metal finishes, throughout the decor, is the key element to Rustic style. Contrasting textures and patterns are also used in this style. You can shop for more Rustic Kitchen Islands in the Furniture section of our site.

    Ms.

    from Knoxville, TN – Verified Buyer

    I love my Butcher Block and even more so, because I put it together all by myself!!! I was recently divorced and the assembly of this table, was my introduction and establishment of true independence. I am 55 and had always relied on the Wusband for the more complicated assemblies. I wanted this purchase, not only for the sheer beauty of the boldness of the thick block, detail of the legs and basket, it also would provide a functional need in my transitionally new apartment home and tiny kitchen, until I located a permanent home with a bigger kitchen. When it came, I will say I was a little over whelmed and began to rethink my zeal for this product. I read the instructions completely, and simply took my time. The hardest part was lifting the butcher block (probably about 50 lbs.) and placing it on the top of the legs. The only thing that I would change ( and plan to add when I move into my villa ) would put lock wheels of some sort, to make it easier to move. Because of the tiny kitchen, I am constantly shifting it from side to side. I currently have thick pads to aid with this on the vinyl floors. Wheels would provide an easier move. However, that would not preclude me from purchasing this. It is extremely high quality and priced comparably. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this exact block table (different color) at Williams Sonoma....but at a higher price.
