The name says is all. The city?s Butcher?s Hill area was home to? wait for it? butchers, tanners, and poultry preparers. So, this maple butcher block top and steel base had to have this name. The Butcher Table is a great communal style table for a restaurant or a residence. Easy to move for different dining situations and customizable for various size needs. The oversized steel legs and durable top give this table an industrial style that will stand up to daily abuse in any setting.
