Your review: This is the best workbench i have ever owned... I ordered the 96/36 maple block and to my surprise, the block was made by John Boos & Co.. For those whom do not know J.B., they produce some of the finest wood tops on the market! Please note that the block come oiled, not polyed. Advice for installation... Do not discard or cut up the cardboard for block. It can be helpful when you are measuring/drilling mounting holes.
