    Solid John Boos Butcher Block
    Maple Top, End Grain Construction, Light Tan Finish Top.

    24" x18" x 10" Thick 34.5" high

    Never used as a butcher block, and is in fine condition. No cracks, solid joints. Feet have guards. I
    I used this for my table, which already had Ultra 5 for feet. I think it was the very best table stand I have ever used. The reason I am selling it is I have to put it in the middle of my speakers to use it, and it greatly affected the sound. Am considering redoing the drywall, which will alleviate it, somewhat. If you thought you knew how your table sounded before, you aint heard it till you put it in something so inert, it raps like a rock. Or the floor, if you dont have elevated floors.

    I won't be an idiot,you can't reasonably ship this anywhere. $400 SoCal Local sale only.

    I looked for one forever, and once I had the table on, the stupid proverbial veils were lifted, just obliterated. Just clear table, cart arm. Then I started to hear anotmalies from where it blocked the sound. I moved it to the side, and it was glorious. But I'm not rich enough to buy interconnects long enough from the table at the side to the reach the phono preamp to the preamp. Ah wells.
