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 BoosBlock Kitchen Island 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.

As expected

Brittany from Pittsburgh, PA– Verified Buyer

Was looking at this for a while before purchasing! I didn't want to spend the money, but after receiving it, I'm sooo glad I did! It was worth it! I also opted for a bigger size than I had planned and it's perfect! I can't imagine it being smaller! Took a while to arrive, but once it did it was easy to assemble! High quality and it's beautiful!

excellent product

charlie from Sacramento, CA– Verified Buyer

our product had wheels which allowed it to be moved which is a great asset - if purchase, would recommend wheels unless you are absolutely sure it will never be moved. took two person to assemble as a lot of parts to be screwed together. Very handy with drawer and towel rack. Unfortunately there were no pre-drilled holes for the towel rack, and when we complained, they said we would have to drill the holes ourselves which was not acceptable so we got a refund for the uninstalled towel rack. otherwise we would have rated this product a 5 but downgraded to a 4 because of lack of holes for the towel rack. Maybe John Boos expect everyone who buys their product to be a handyman, but regardless of whether I am or not (Im not), I expect them to drill the holes. excellent product but dont order the towel rack unless you are prepared to drill your own holes.

John Boos prep table

Carol from West Babylon, NY– Verified Buyer

My husband and I LOVE this prep table. We bought it to put in our finished basement. This item is very well made and makes a statement when you see it. It will be a well used item in our home. It took a while to get it but it was worth the wait.

Great purchase

Claire from JACKSON, MO– Verified Buyer

This table is worth every penny. It is sturdy and beautiful. I bought an additional towel rack and did not like it at all. Instead, I purchased 2 brushed nickel towel bars for the long sides and they work just fine. I would definitely buy Boos again. Assembly was a breeze.

Expensive but worth it.

Michael from Arlington Heights, IL– Verified Buyer

I have had my eye on this table for a long time. It is very well built. It is heavy however so a friend would be advised. It was expensive but seeing how it fits in my kitchen makes it worth it.

Exactly as advertised

Ron Greenan from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer

The table came in two weeks ahead of time and after about 20 minuites of assembly, found the table to be exactly as advertised. Easy assembly and the quality I was expecting. I would recomend that the directions mention that the two shelves are not exactly the same size and during assembly knowing the slightly smaller one should be on the bottom would be helpful. Great Job, Boos.

Excellent Prep Table/Lots of storage

NC Cook from Chapel Hill, NC

I have very little counter space for preparing food. I purchased the table with the largest dimensions and it provides plenty of space for cookware on the two shelves. It is very sturdy/heavy and well made. Very easy to put together.
If you are wondering whether to go bigger - do it! the extra space is definitely noticeable. I have not found anything I do not like or would change - it is exactly what I wanted.

Holly from Ottsville, PA– Verified Buyer

Great quality. Sturdy piece of furniture. Liked getting to pick the size. Unlike other carts and islands we've purchased, this one is solid and substantial.
