  • Cherry - Light pink to reddish brown with streaks of pale yellow.
  • Maple (Commercial) - Blended grain. Food Service grade. NSF-approved.
  • Maple (Industrial) - Blended grain. Knots and imperfections might show.

Grain Options

  • Edge Grain has full length rails that run parallel
  • Blended Grain has rails that vary in length
  • End Grain has ends of short cut rails in a checkerboard pattern.

Finish Options

About Size Pricing

For best prices, choose a standard size countertop.

Customization increases price.

Please note that Walnut Edge Grain counter tops exceeding 97" in length will typically have 2 to 3 finger joints per strip (or rail) of wood. In other words, multiple pieces will be joined together end-to-end to create each strip that spans the length of the counter top

About Custom Edging

The standard edge for Edge Grain and Blended Grain is sanded, slightly eased, top only.

The standard edge for End Grain is 1/4" radius, top only. If you’d like to customize the edges of your countertop, we offer four classic cuts to choose from. (Not available on every species-grain style combination.)

Radius Edge

Beveled Edge

Bullnose Edge

Roman Ogee Edge

John Boos Logo

The John Boos logo can be branded on the side of your countertop at no cost. If you select "Yes" the "Boos Block" logo will be engraved on the edge of both long sides.

NSF Seal

The NSF seal can be applied to the underside of your counter at no additional charge, provided you chose Natural Oil as your finish. Varnique finish does not satisfy NSF requirements.

Also note that if you need an NSF-compliant backsplash you should call for a price quote. NSF requires that risers be coved and attached at the factory.

(Make sure your length is in inches)

About Backsplashes

All backsplashes are 4" tall, 3/4" thick and edge-grain style. Standard lengths are shown in the drop-down menu. You can cut a standard size backsplash to a custom length, or call us to arrange for a custom cut.
